AKB48’s latest album “1830m” which was released on August 15th, sold 871,000 copies in the first week, topping Oricon’s weekly album chart.

This marks AKB48 as only the second female group to have an original album sell over 800,000 copies in its first week, and this is the first time in 14 years and 4 months after SPEED’s “RISE” which sold 1,318,000 copies in the first week (released in April 1998).  Moreover, this is the first album in 3 years and 8 months to sell over 800,000 copies during the first week including both male and female artists as EXILE’s best album “EXILE BALLAD BEST” sold 944,000 copies in its first week back in December of 2008.

This is also the third album for AKB48 to top the chart, and it’s their best first week sales for an album.
