Back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.

This article covers the 2nd week of April, including singles and albums released between 08/04/2024 and 14/04/2024.

The Oricon charts, known for their comprehensive coverage of the Japanese music industry, provide valuable insights into the best-selling CDs across various categories. These charts serve as a reliable indicator of popular and successful releases, be it physical singles, albums, EPs, or mini-albums.

The Oricon charts meticulously monitor the performance of both physical and digital releases, allowing music enthusiasts to stay up-to-date with the latest trends and sales figures.

However, the focus of this feature is directed specifically towards physical releases, including singles and albums/EPs/mini-albums.

Let’s take a look at the data.

Lastly, Oricon charts’ commitment to inclusivity extends beyond mainstream genres, encompassing a wide array of musical styles. From pop to rock, hip-hop to jazz, and everything in between, these charts strive to reflect the diverse and ever-evolving tastes of music listeners in Japan.

If there aren’t sales figures on the prints posted, the music label behind that artist doesn’t want to disclose that information.

It often happens with the Daily rankings. The Oricon charts depicted here only count physical copies. Digital figures are featured on a different chart that is not covered here.
