Girls’ Generation’s latest Japanese single, “Oh!”, earned first place on Oricon’s “10/8 Single Weekly Ranking” chart, selling 66,000 copies since its release on September 26th. In addition, the DVD and Blu-Ray for “Girls’ Generation Complete Video Collection” reached number one on the “Oricon Weekly DVD” and “Oricon Weekly Blu-Ray” charts, with 40,000 DVDs and 19,000 Blu-Ray discs sold.
This is the first time Girls’ Generation earned first place rankings on the single and Blu-Ray charts since their Japanese debut in September 2010. They are the first female artist or group to reach number one on all three charts — Oricon’s Weekly Single, DVD, and Blu-Ray Rankings — in the same week. The only other group to accomplish this same feat was Mr. Children, a Japanese pop rock band formed in 1988. Girls’ Generation was able to achieve this feat even though they are a foreign music group in the Japanese market, making this an even greater accomplishment.
