Charts: SMAP, Team Dragon
SMAP’s new album “We are SMAP!” sold 180,000 copies this week to rank #1 on the charts, giving them their 11th number-one album (5th consecutive). They now have a number-one album in three consecutive decades (’90s, ’00s, ’10s), becoming just the third group to accomplish that feat after Southern All Stars and CHAGE and ASKA (both currently have a streak from the ’80s to the ’00s).
Singer JASMINE took the #3 spot with her first album. The rest of the top ten included new releases from Megumi Hayashibara (#6) and Gackt (#7), as well as a “Katekyo Hitman Reborn!” character album (#9).
