Oricon 2010 Rankings (Singles): AKB48, Arashi control Top 10

Oricon is beginning to release its cumulative sales data for 2010. So far, it has announced the Top 50 in singles and albums, as well as the Top 5 in total sales. As predicted, the singles rankings were dominated by AKB48 and Arashi, who together held all of the Top 10 spots.

This is the first time in the ranking’s history that the Top 10 has been occupied by just two artists. Before this, the record was five artists in the Top 10, which happened in 1989 with Princess Princess, Tsuyoshi Nagabuchi, Hikaru Genji, Wink, and Shizuka Kudo.

AKB48 had the top 2 singles with “Beginner” and “Heavy Rotation.” They are only the third female artist to hold the top 2 singles of the year, a feat previously accomplished by Princess Princess in 1989 and Pink Lady in 1978.

Arashi, who had the top 2 singles in 2008 and the top 3 singles in 2009, settled for taking 6 of the top 10 spots this year.
