SHINee has become the first foreign male group to simultaneously top both of Oricon’s weekly album charts in Japan!
On April 24, Oricon announced that SHINee’s new Japanese best-of album, “The Best From Now On,” had taken first place on both its weekly physical album chart and its weekly digital album chart.
Oricon reported on its official website, “This is the first time since we began reporting digital album rankings in November 2016 that a foreign male group has recorded first place on both the CD and the digital album charts at the same time.”
In addition to setting a new Oricon record, “The Best From Now On” also topped Billboard Japan’s Top Album Sales chart for the week of April 16 to April 22.
SHINee previously hit No. 1 on Oricon’s weekly album chart with their 2014 Japanese album “I’m Your Boy” and their 2016 Japanese album “DxDxD.”
Congratulations to SHINee on their impressive achievement!
