Johnny’s groups dominate charts
Johnny's Jimusho once again dominates the music charts this week. Kanjani8’s second full album, “KJ2 Zukkoke Daidassou,” ranked #1 among albums, selling approximately 212,000 copies. This is not only the first #1 for the group, but also the first for an enka artist since Oricon began tracking albums in 1970. It is also the first enka album to sell more than 200,000 copies in its opening week.
Meanwhile, on the singles chart, KAT-TUN scored their fourth consecutive #1 release with “Yorokobi no Uta.”
