[Oricon Weekly] Idolmaster SideM, Utapri, MAD TRIGGER CREW and more on this week’s roundup

New week, new Oricon Weekly roundup.

This article covers the second week of November – which includes singles/albums released between 13/11/2017 and 19/11/2017.

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Album ranking

NEW ENTRY: Uncle Bomb enter the chart on top 15

Uncle Bomb entered the Oricon Weekly chart with their mini-album “No Way, But“. The duo’s playful sound sold them 4.100 physical copies, earning them a #14 spot on an extremelly difficult week to chart – filled with popular K-Pop acts on it.

This is the highest the duo has ever charted on Oricon Weekly (previous record was held by “Two-sides” on #17).

HEAVENS keep on slipping on the chart

Three weeks later, HEAVENS‘ “Heaven Sky” is still charting but keeps on losing ground to the top spots. This week the mini-album dropped from #43 to #50.

If there aren’t sales figures on the prints we’ve posted it’s because the music label behind that artist doesn’t want to disclose that information. The Oricon charts only count physical copies. Digital figures and ranks might be different.
