Congrats to Arashi!

On just it’s first day of release, Arashi’s “Believe/Kumori Nochi, Kaisei” single sold 214,618 copies.

No, I did not type that wrong.

200,000+ copies. In a day. And only from the record stores that submit their sales daily. It’s currently the fourth best selling single of 2009 with just one day of sales.

And it’s a fairly reasonable 3 version release too – just a double A-side with great songs, great PVs, and smart tie-ins.

I knew Arashi is still extremely popular in Japan – but I could never have predicted sales of this level!

This single looks like it has the ability to overtake the tremendous success “truth/Kaze no Mukou e”. For the third year in a row, Arashi looks to have an amazingly successful year.

UPDATE: “Believe/Kumori Nochi, Kaisei” easily became the number one single with just two days of sales. Its first week sales were an astonishing 502,000 copies – easily placing it as the number one single of 2009 as well as the highest first week sales of the year.
