AKB48's
AKB48's latest single "Eien Pressure" has sold 1,073,000 copies in its first week of sales, becoming the group's 10th consecutive single to sell over 1 million copies.

AKB48 has become the first female artist to have 10 consecutive singles sell over 1 million copies, and is the first Japanese artist to do so since 1996 when B'z accomplished this.

While AKB48 currently has 11 singles that have sold more than 1 million copies, B'z still holds the record for most singles to sell more than 1 million copies with 15 singles.

Haruka Shimazaki served as the center for "Eien Pressure" after winning the 3rd Janken tournament. The singer is relieved to know that the group's record remains intact.

"Honestly, I felt uneasy and pressured wondering 'What if the record ends because of the song I was the center for?', but now I feel relieved. I am very happy," she stated.
