On the weekly Oricon charts, AKB48 newest single Heavy Rotation took the #1 spot selling 527 000 copies. Compared to their last single Ponytail to Chouchou, Heavy Rotation sold about 14 000 more copies in its first week. This is their 4th consecutive #1 single and 2nd consecutive single to sell over 500k in its first week. Quite the grand achievement wouldn’t you say. Let’s hope all this momentum will continue over onto their next single.
