It’s been revealed that Korean group TVXQ’s “Tone” release has charted first on the Oricon weekly album chart! Released on September 28th, the album ranked first on the Oricon daily album chart and has maintained its place all week-long, recording 205,000 copies in sales.
On October 4th, Oricon reported, “By recording 205,000 in sales, TVXQ has risen to the top of the Oricon weekly album chart. This is the first time in 11 years and four months since Bon Jovi’s ‘Crash‘ that a foreign male artist has sold over 200,000 copies in the first week alone.”
They continued, “This is also TVXQ’s first time since their ‘Best Selection 2010′ album a year and seven months ago that they’ve returned to the Oricon weekly album chart, and is considered their first album to rank at the top. In addition, 205,000 copies sold in their first week is the best they’ve achieved so far in regards to their full studio album releases.”
Although TVXQ has achieved first place on the Oricon weekly singles chart nine times, this is their first time ranking first on the weekly album chart with an official album, not a best of album.
