Oricon Weekly Album ranking

NEW ENTRY: Fling Posse VS Matenro

Hypnosis Mic‘s long awaited release in the Battle Season series is out. As expected, Fling Posse and Matenro, the franchise’s best selling crews, faced off in Fling Posse VS Matenro and the album has been beating records since its release. After sweeping iTunes and Apple Store‘s charts and topping several Billboard Charts, the album clinched an outstanding #3 on Oricon Weekly. The album has over 55.000 copies sold in one week and is currently halfway towards a Gold Record certification (awarded to a single/album that sells 100.000 copies).

For those that purchased the album, a reminder: don’t forget to cast your votes for the crew you want to go to the finals to face the winner of Buster Bros!!! VS MAD TRIGGER CREW. Instructions on how to do it come with the battle card included with the album.

If there aren’t sales figures on the prints we’ve posted it’s because the music label behind that artist doesn’t want to disclose that information. The Oricon charts depicted here only count physical copies. Digital figures are featured on a different chart.
