Arashi, Ringo Shiina top charts
This week’s Oricon charts show some big accomplishments from several artists. Arashi’s 18th single, “Love so sweet,” took the top spot, becoming the group’s 7th consecutive #1 single (and 14th overall). It was also the group’s first single to sell more than 200,000 copies in a week since “A Day in Our Life” in 2002.
Meanwhile, Ringo Shiina captured #1 on the album charts with her collaboration Heisei Fuzoku, her first album in four years.
