Seventeen continues to reign at the top of Japanese charts with its special single “Ainochikara.”
The single topped Billboard Japan’s weekly single sales chart, logging close to 247,000 copies in sales. It also was No. 2 on Billboard Japan’s Hot 100, according to the publication’s latest announcement on Wednesday.
It was released on Dec. 8 and landed atop Oricon’s daily single ranking and maintained the spot for six days before hitting its weekly single ranking at No. 1. The same-titled main track was No. 1 on a string of major music charts in Japan and on AWA, one of those charts, hogged the top three along with other tracks — Japanese version of “Home” and “Snap Shoot.”
Separately, the band was chosen as the artist of the month by MTV Push as “first-ever K-pop group to land an MTV Push feature.”
