AKB48 Becomes Japan's Best Selling Artist In Single Sales
With the release of its latest single "Kuchibiru ni Be My Baby", AKB48 has sold more singles than any other artist in Japan's history.

"Kuchibiru ni Be My Baby" was released on December 9. During its first day of release, the single sold 813,000 copies. This brings AKB48's total number of singles sold to 36,158,000 copies.

B'z previously held the record for most singles sold. The band has sold 35,809,000 during its career.

AKB48's record-breaking sales are more impressive when considering the time in which this was accomplished. B'z record had been accumulated over a 27 year period. AKB48 managed to beat it after only 10 years of activity.
