[Oricon Weekly] Buster Bros!!! & MAD TRIGGER CREW, MooNs, Judah and more impress on this week’s chart

We’re back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.

This article covers the second week of May – which includes singles and albums released between 14/05/2018 and 20/05/2018. 

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Album ranking



Buster Bros!!! VS MAD TRIGGER CREW‘s album rose on the charts, capturing top places on Oricon Daily upon release. During its first week on the chart, the album kept ranking high, leading the amazing feat for the Hypnosis Mic franchise: a release within top 3 on Oricon Weekly (a first for this franchise). With over 13.000 copies sold, this album ranks in a well deserved #2 on this week’s chart.

For those that purchased the album, a reminder: don’t forget to cast your votes for the crew you want to go to the finals to face the winner of Fling Posse VS Matenrou. Instructions on how to do it come with the battle card included with the album.

This mini-album was a constant presence within top 15, showcasing the unit’s popularity and warm reception for this release. “GO AROUND” sold a bit over 6.000 copies during its first week of sales, enough to earned them a comfortable #8 on this week’s chart.

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 depicted here only count physical copies. Digital figures are featured on a different chart.
