This just in. With its latest single “Kuchibiru ni Be My Baby,” J-pop group AKB48 has become the artist with the most number of single album sales in Japan.
What’s more remarkable is that the record went on sale on December 9 and sold more than 813,000 copies on its first day. In total, the group has sold around 36,158,000 single albums in its 10-year history.
With its new record, the group surpassed the record of the group B’z that has sold around 35 million singles in its 27 years in the industry.
