Korean rock band CNBLUE‘s 2nd major Japanese single “Where you are” sold 60,000 copies in its first week and topped the Oricon Singles Chart for the week of February 13th.


CNBLUE made their indie debut back in Japan back in 2009 and released their major label debut single titled, “In My Head” last October.

A foreign band has not topped the singles chart for 41 years. It last occurred back in January 18, 1971, when Canadian rock band Mashmakhan released their single “As the Years Go By” under the name “Two in the fog“. CNBLUE is the fourth Korean male artist to have topped the Oricon Singles Chart following TVXQJEJUNG (Jaejoong) & YUCHUN (Yoochun) (from TVXQ), and Jang Geun Suk.
Though this is quite the accomplishment, the boys are more excited about the number of album copies they have sold.

Their newest single album ‘Where You Are‘ sold over 60,000 copies as of February 7th, and the boys are one step closer to breaking the vaunted 100,000 mark. Only the biggest hit artists in Japan sell over 100,000 copies and it shouldn’t be hard for CNBLUE as the boys have previously accomplished this feat last October with their first single, ‘In My Head’.

On their new album is track “Where You Are“, and “Feeling“, written by lead vocal Jung Yonghwaas well as “Get Away” written by Lee Jonghyun. High sales numbers for this album is more meaningful to the members this time around, as it means their music has been respected and acknowledged in the competitive market.

Their agency FNC Entertainment stated, “We received over 100,000 orders for their new album before it’s release, and with that we knew that CNBLUE’s position in the Japanese music market had shifted. The boys have matured as musicians, composing the songs on their single album.”

In related news, CNBLUE will be embarking on their ‘Fan Club Live Tour’ in Japan beginning on February 13th.
