First Million-Selling Single in Three Years


The Recording Industry Association of Japan(RIAJ), responsible for dishing out the coveted ‘gold’ and ‘platinum’ certifications, has certified ‘Beginner’ as a million-seller.  I was surprised to find that this was the million-buster single in over three years; an Oricon article was speculating this would spark a sort of revival in singles sales.  Whether or not that’s true, there’s definitely a large revival in the idol industry.  Congratulations!
