    Congratulations to them. But some of the information in this post is incorrect. This is their 27th single to sell over a million copies in total, starting with Beginner. But it is only their 26th consecutive single to sell over a million copies, because Chance no Junban didn't reach the million mark. As for first week million, this is their 24th single to do so, but not 24th consecutive, because Kuchibiru ni Be My Baby did not reach a million in its first week.
