SMAP No.1 for three decades

09:39 JST July 27, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

SMAP have become the third group in Japanese history to have No.1 albums in three different decades, reports Oricon and Sponichi Annex.

The group’s latest album “We are SMAP!”, which was released on July 21, made its debut on the Japanese charts at number one, having sold 180,000 records so far.  Not only that, but it means SMAP have now had number one album records in the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s.

Other groups who have achieved such a record are the Southern All Stars (number ones in 1980s, 1990s, 2000s) and CHAGE and ASKA (number ones in 1980s, 1990s, 2000s).

It is the fifth consecutive SMAP album to go to number one, and is the group’s 11th number one since their debut in 1991.  In a time where the life of a popstar is often short-lived, SMAP’s latest record has proven that they have been able to stand up to the challenge.
