Girls’ Generation Wins 2012 MTV Video Music Awards Japan’s ‘Best Album of the Year’


Girls’ Generation’s self-titled and debut Japanese album, “Girls’ Generation”, has won “Best Album of the Year” at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards Japan, which awards artists for their music and videos through online voting. Other nominees for “Best Album of the Year” included international superstars Lady Gaga and Coldplay, fellow Korean girl group Kara, and popular Japanese singer JUJU. Earlier this year, “Girls’ Generation” was also awarded with the “Best Album of Asia” at the 26th Japan Gold Disc Awards, showing the album’s continuing success.


Released in June of 2011, “Girls’ Generation” was well-received both in Japan and worldwide, breaking several different records. The album sold 232,000 copies in its first week and remained in the Oricon chart’s top ten albums list for seventeen weeks, both records for foreign artists. The album continues to sell thousands of copies each week with 209,679 copies sold in the first half of 2012 and has been certified “Million” by the Recording Industry Association of Japan for having reached a shipment total of one million copies.

It's crazy how much I've listened to this album.
Their debut album will always be my favorite, but this one holds the second spot.
Solid album.

Ngel, this is probably the only album that they've ever released that I actually liked all the songs on it O__O </p>

Usually I only like a few songs off their albums along with their promotional singles...But this album was FLAWLESS *O*

idg the hype for this. It's not a bad album, but it's a very generic album.

edit: that's a very random list for who was up for this award.

me neither. idt its a horrible album but it wasn't memorable and i listened to the whole thing expecting to like a lot of songs bc of everyone's reactions, yet i can't even remember one song.

and ia, with the exception of that japanese group i thought this was only for foreigners at first. where are all the other famous japanese artists? lol

Well-deserved imo. I love their Japanese discography.

Although I have to say, having sort of rediscovered Oh! recently, I have no idea why I was indifferent to it before because I'm addicted to it now. Their Korean discography is not necessarily inferior.
