MooNs “GO AROUND”

MooNs‘ best release to date is featured on Oricon Monthly despite its unusual low sales numbers. “GO AROUND” jumped to #8 during its first week of sales but soon left the top 50 spots, with poor sales numbers in the weeks following its release ultimately leading to the rank in which this album ended up in.
