With its latest single, Nogizaka46 showed that its popularity continues to grow as time goes on.
While AKB48 regularly sells over 1 million copies of its singles, it is rare for an artist to reach this feat in the modern music market. The last time a group other than AKB48 sold over 1 million copies of a single was EXILE with its 2013 single "EXILE PRIDE ~Konna Sekai wo Aisuru Tame~".
