GReeeeN has reclaimed a digital download record with their newest single ‘Kiseki,’ which is being used as the theme song for the drama series ‘ROOKIES.’
The group’s hit song ‘Aiuta’ had previously set a record for reaching 1 million chaku-uta downloads in only 91 days. In March, Thelma Aoyama broke that record with ‘Soba ni Iru ne,’ taking only 43 days to reach a million. Now, ‘Kiseki’ has set the new record in less than a month – it was released on April 19 and achieved a million downloads as of May 18. It has also been #1 on Recochoku’s weekly chaku-uta rankings for four consecutive weeks.
Congratulations to the J-pop quartet GReeeeN for setting a new chaku-uta download record. “Kiseki” is their first J-drama theme song (for the TBS drama “Rookies“) and the group’s seventh single overall with the previous single, “Tabidachi,” having only been released two months ago on March 5th. The group, member 92 (kuni) is from Okinawa, has a pretty interesting story so check out the Wikipedia entry for more.
