[Oricon Weekly] Soma Saito, A3! and more top this week’s charts

We’re back with a new Oricon Weekly roundup.

This article covers the 3rd week of December – which includes singles and albums released between 16/12/2019 and 22/12/2019. 

A note that Oricon always suspends and postpones the unveil of the results of the 4th week of December to the 1st week of January. This feature will be back exceptionally on January 6, 2020 (Monday) with the results from that week.

Let’s take a look at the data.

Oricon Weekly Single Ranking

Trickstar and Eden‘s Kiseki is back for another week on Oricon Weekly chart. The single dropped 10 places from #24 to #34 after selling a bit over 1,000 copies. 

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. It happens often with the Daily rankings. The Oricon charts depicted here only count physical copies. Digital figures are featured on a different chart.
