TRIGGER tops Billboard Japan’s Weekly Album sales chart with “REGALITY”

TRIGGER have been impressing everyone in Japan, first with their incredible sales power, then with their 5 day run as #1 on Oricon daily and now topping Billboard’s Weekly Album sales chart!

TRIGGER have been on a strong run on Oricon, managing to hold #1 since the album’s release up until yesterday (an impressive 5 day undisputed run). But Oricon and Billboard are two separate entities so their tops don’t have anything to do with each other.

Today, we bring to you Billboard‘s chart.

Billboard mentioned in two distinct articles that TRIGGER have been, during this past week, a force of nature, holding well their #1 spot on the Album sales chart with “REGALITY“. The album sold 19,337 copies in the initial 3 days, ranking #1 with a massive sales difference to second place (BUCK-TICK’s “CATALOGUE 1987-2016” that sold 6.999 copies in 3 days).

Today, Billboard awarded TRIGGER with the Weekly Best Selling Album title. According to them, the album sold a total of 31,607 copies during its first week of sales.

Congratulations are in order!
