T-ara bounces back in Japan as "Sexy Love" doubles their previous single's first week sales

Girl group T-ARA's Japanese single, Sexy Love, has reached 40,000 in first week album sales showing a 200% increase from their last Japanese single, Lovey-Dovey's first week.

Today, Oricon announced that T-ARA's "Sexy Love" ranked number 4 for this week's Oricon Weekly Chart.

This is their third time having over 40,000 album sales. The first two times were from their Japan debut single, Bo Peep Bo Peep, and their third single, Roly Poly.

This album was released while T-ARA was focusing on overseas activities. T-ARA will be holding various showcases throughout Japan to promote this new single.

I fear the girl groups in japan might be in trouble, Kara's sales were low, idk how well SNSD will do.

seems like flower power isn't doing well either..

Flower Power’s first day sales 13,090 units, but we know that their album will be released the next week and flower power was released digitally the last week, so we know this single wont do it very well, so i think i will wait how the album will do it.

It's really sad if the best groups can't sell because they don't have batcrazy fangirls buying tons of copies of singles.

That's not the reason though.

I though that usually digital sales of singles were better than album sales. Hope they do ok.

that's true but for some reason Tohoshinki's album sales are always better than their singles.

T-ara has the potential... Sadly, their rep in SK has been tainted. I wish them the best.

I LOVED them Roly Poly era, had all their albums on my iPod.
I thought they were the future top girl group tbh

Now I just can't, I'm sorry. Good luck though.

isn't this an original single? and lovey dovey was a remake of a lousy single, so ofc it wouldn't sell well!

sexy love is a remake too
