B1A4′s Japanese debut single ‘Beautiful Target’ ranks high on Oricon Chart
B1A4 made their official debut in Japan with ‘Beautiful Target’ on June 27th, and on the same day of release, the group ranked within the top 5 on the Oricon Chart with famous Japanese boy band KAT-TUN and Girls’ Generation. In addition, the boys have also stolen the top 3 spots on Tower Records‘ daily rankings, Japan’s largest music portal site.
A representative of their agency stated, “We’re surprised by the fact that B1A4 ranked within the top 5 on the Oricon Chart despite being a foreign rookie group, and a group that hasn’t begun promotions in Japan. Representatives in the music industry and fans are showing high interest in their next move.”
The B1A4 members also shared their thoughts: “We’re very happy to be able to debut in Japan. We’ll work harder to become a better group in order to receive much more love from fans.”
Meanwhile, B1A4 will be heading over to Japan this weekend for a handshake event at the Tokyo Big Sight on June 30th. The group will then officially greet fans at their debut event, which is being held at the Lazona Kawasaki Plaza on July 1st.
