J-pop phenomenon AKB 48 sets a new alltime record!

Posted on June 19, 2016


AKB48's new hit single 'Tsubasa Wa Iranai' debuts atop the Global Track Chart. It's the 23rd global no.1 hit from the girlie idol group. No other act in the music history had as many no.1s on the global chart. The former record was held by Madonna and Elvis Presley, each with 22 no.1 hits. Madonna's last and 22nd chart-leader was '4 Minutes' (a collaboration with Justin Timberlake) at #1 in May and June 2008. Elvis' posthumous released Junkie XL remix of his 'A Little Less Conversation' went to #1 in September 2002. Five years ago nobody would have thought, that a Japanese act could ever tie with Madonna and Elvis Presley! The World has changed and Asia is a force to be reckoned with!

Justin Timberlake's big summer smash 'Can't Stop The Feeling' slips this week to no.2, but could very well be back at #1 next week.

Drake's 'One Dance' is at no.3.

'This Is What You Came For' by Calvin Harris ft. Rihanna slips to #4 and Sia's 'Cheap Thrills' reenters the top five.
