[Oricon] 04.05.2011 Ayu Broke Records At Oricon Charts!

Hamasaki Ayumi sets new Oricon record with 4 albums in the top 10

J-pop superstar Hamasaki Ayumi has set a new record by landing 4 albums in the top 10 of this week’s Oricon Weekly Charts!

The 4 remix albums (“ayu-mi-x 7 presents ayu-ro mix 4“, “ayu-mi-x 7 -version Acoustic Orchestra“, “ayu-mi-x 7 presents ayu trance 4“, and “ayu-mi-x 7 version HOUSE-“) were all released on April 20th and took the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th spots on this week’s Oricon Weekly Album Ranking.

The previous record for having the most simultaneous albums in the top 10 was held jointly by TMN, L’Arc~en~Ciel, and Hamasaki herself, with 3 albums each. Hamasaki also set a record in the Oricon Music DVD Ranking this week, by being the first female artist to take the 1st and 2nd position at the same time.

The singer commented, “I feel very honored to be able to update another record like this. This is all thanks to the support of fans. The remixes this time is one or two flavors different from the original, so I will be happy if more people can enjoy them. Also, the DVDs were sort of like a compilation of all the lives I’ve had, so I hope people can enjoy listening to and watching them both.”

Hamasaki Ayumi becomes the top-selling female artist in music DVD sales

According to Oricon’s Weekly DVD ranking for May 9th, pop queen Hamasaki Ayumi has officially become the female artist with the highest music DVD sales in Japan!

The previous record was held by Morning Musume, who has sold approximately 2.303 million DVDs since their live concert DVD “Morning Musume Memory Seishun no Hikari” was released in 1999.

Hamasaki’s most recent music DVDs “A 50 SINGLES ~LIVE SELECTION~” and “ayumi hamasaki Rock’ n’ Roll Circus Tour FINAL ~7days Special~” – which sold nine thousand and six thousand units respectively – have pushed her total sales to 2.313 million units, surpassing Morning Musume’s record by ten thousand units.

Ayu broke other Oricon records just last week when her four remix albums charted in the top ten on the Oricon album charts, making her the artist with the most albums to rank in the top ten simultaneously. She also became the first female artist to hold the top two positions on the music DVD ranking when her two music DVDs were released on April 20th.

Congratulations to Hamasaki Ayumi on her achievements!
