[Oricon Weekly] Soma Saito, BRBRookies!, IDOLiSH7 and more dominate this week’s charts

We’re back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.

This article covers the third week of June – which includes singles and albums released between 18/06/2018 and 24/06/2018. 

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Album ranking


NEW ENTRY: (2)YOU “Dear Vocalist Xtreme” Entry No.4″

The newest entry in the Dear Vocalist Xtreme series is out and despite its mellow reception, it shot directly to the top 25 spots upon release. (2)YOU‘s “Dear Vocalist Xtreme” Entry No.4” sold a bit over 2.500 copies during its first week of sales, earning it a comfortable #20 on this week’s chart.



It’s been 6 weeks (you read it well) since Buster Bros!!! VS MAD TRIGGER CREW‘s album was released and the album has yet to drop from the top 35. Compared to last week, the album dropped 4 spots, from #28 to #32. A bit under 2.000 copies sold in the past week were more than enough to make this album the most successful release in the Hypnosis Mic franchise (with the longest stay on Oricon Weekly). The album has over 25.000 copies sold.

Once again, 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.

Oricon Weekly Single ranking

NEW ENTRY: Soma Saito “Date”

The single that has been the talk in town lately – much due to having clinched several top 10’s in almost all major music charts in Japan – is Soma Saito‘s “Date“. The single, that finds him exploring rock music as a singer/songwriter, shot to #6 on Oricon Daily upon release. The single then went up and down the chart (from 5 to 12) until the end of the week. “Date” has a bit over 13.000 copies sold, earning Saito yet another top 10 release in his career (his 3rd straight top 10 as a solo artist). “Date” got a well earned #7 on this week’s chart.

IDOLiSH7 made an impressive comeback with “Nanatsuiro REALiZE“. The new single didn’t debut within top 10 which ended up being a surprise but quickly picked its pace and rose to the top spots on Oricon Daily. By the end of the week, “Nanatsuiro REALiZE” had sold a bit over 10.000 copies, earning them strong #9. At the same time, IDOLiSH7 dominated the Billboard charts.

Miyu Irino made his long awaited comeback after two years of hiatus. However, “FREEDOM” didn’t get the warm response that most anticipated it would have. “FREEDOM” debuted at #13 on Oricon Daily and never got to enter top 10 during its first week of sales. With a bit over 4.500 copies sold, the single sits comfortably at #15, matching “Uso to mirai to” (released in 2016) as his highest ranking single on Oricon Weekly.



SideM‘s second installment of the WORLD TRE@SURE  shuffle series continues its journey on Oricon Weekly. However, the biggest fall on this chart belongs to this release. With a  bit over 1.400 copies sold, the single dropped from #11 to #46. This single has over 9.500 copies sold (cumulative).


Matenro “Matenro -onnin rinshou”

This is the 5th straight week since Matenro‘s “Matenro -onnin rinshou” re-entered the charts. The most popular Hypnosis Mic crew continues to hold on to Oricon Weekly chart. With a bit over 1.200 copies sold, “Matenro -onnin rinshou” still dropped six spots to #50. The single now has over 10.000 copies sold (cumulative).

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.
