TWICE Tops Oricon’s Weekly Album Chart + Sets New Personal Record With “TWICE2”
TWICE’s latest Japanese release is a smash success!
On March 12, Japanese music chart Oricon announced that the group’s new compilation album “#TWICE2” had topped its latest weekly album chart after selling over 200,000 copies in less than a week. The achievement marks a new personal record for TWICE, whose previous Japanese album “BDZ” topped the Oricon weekly chart after selling over 180,000 copies in its first week.
It also marks TWICE’s third No. 1 on Oricon’s weekly album chart, following their first Japanese studio album “BDZ” and their recent Korean mini album “YES or YES,” which topped the chart in September and November 2018 respectively. With three crowns under their belt, TWICE now ranks third on the list of foreign female artists with the most No. 1’s on the Oricon weekly album chart.
“#TWICE2” previously broke the record for the highest first-day sales by a K-pop girl group in Japan last week, selling an impressive 95,825 copies on the day of its release.
Meanwhile, TWICE is currently preparing to embark on a dome tour of Japan, entitled “TWICE DOME TOUR 2019 ‘#Dreamday.'” The tour will kick off in Osaka on March 20 and 21, before heading to Tokyo and Nagoya for a total of five concerts in three cities.
Congratulations to TWICE on another amazing achievement!
