2PM reigned Japan’s Tower Records single sales chart two weeks in a row. 2PM’s 5th Japanese single album “Masquerade” was released on November 14. On the day of release, “Masquerade” sold 13,242 copies and became the best-selling single album of the week.
For popular K-Pop artists releasing albums in Japan, it is not too hard or unheard of for topping the Tower Records charts within the first week of releasing an album. However, only a few artists successfully maintain their position at the top for more than a week. Therefore, 2PM proved their wide popularity in Japan with the success of “Masquerade.”
Previously, 2PM’s fourth single album “Beautiful” became the most selling single album in the history of Japan’s Tower Records’ Shibuya branch. 2PM’s fans inside and outside of Japan are paying close attention to see if they would be able to break their own record with “Masquerade.”
Meanwhile, 2PM will start their Asian tour concerts in Indonesia on December 8. 2PM will be visiting various countries in East and Southeast Asia, including Taiwan and Macao.
