Arashi’s 34th single, “Hatenai Sora,” is officially confirmed as the top single for this week. The single sold 572,000 copies, surpassing their previous personal record set by their debut song “A-RA-SHI” in 1999 (557,000 copies).

“Hatenai Sora” is the group’s 30th number-one single. The only other artists who have reached that milestone are B’z and Ayumi Hamasaki. Arashi achieved it 11 years after their debut, ahead of B’z (14 and a half years) but slightly behind Hamasaki (10 years).

The song also marks Arashi’s sixth #1 single for the year, setting a new record for male artists. The previous highest was five, set by The Checkers in 1985 and tied by L’Arc~en~Ciel in 1998. However, Arashi is tied with Ayumi Hamasaki among all artists, as she already achieved six in 2001.
