Recently, TVXQ has topped the Oricon chart, once again.
The group’s new single Still ranked at the top of the Oricon’s daily single chart on the very same day of its release, March 14. It topped the weekly chart as well, making it the tenth time to be ranked no.1 on this weekly single chart.
None of the foreign artists have ever had their ten singles ranked at the top of the weekly chart before. It is also considered as a remarkable achievement since the Oricon chart opened in January, 1968. TVXQ even achieved its own goal to become a foreign artist with the most top rankings.
Since the group’s seventh single Sky in August, 2006, TVXQ has been ranked in Top ten on the weekly chart 26 times in total. This remarkable rate shows the group’s dignity as the top exclusive foreign artist in history.
On March 20, the Oricon reported on its homepage, “TVXQ as the first foreign artist to have its ten singles ranked no.1. The first splendid achievement ever in the 45 year-history of Oricon ranking.”
In the meantime, TVXQ is in the middle of giving TVXQ Live Tour 2012-Tone divided into 26 concerts held at eleven different cities in Japan.
