MoMusu, KinKi Kids set records with new singles

Morning Musume’s new single, “Kanashimi Twilight,” came in second this week on the Oricon singles chart, selling approximately 54,000 copies. This brings their total single sales to 11,085,000 copies, setting the record for a female group. The previous record was 48,000 copies fewer, set by the ’70s and ’80s duo Pink Lady.

Morning Musume holds four other records among female groups: most #1 singles (10), most Top 10 singles (33), most consecutive years with a #1 single (6), and most consecutive years with a Top 10 single (10).

The #1 single this week was KinKi Kids’ “BRAND NEW SONG.” This extends their current Guinness World Record for most consecutive #1 singles since their debut to a total of 25.
