In #2 is NEVER LET YOU GO the 5th single from GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE selling 86,000 copies.

The song is performed by the 9 lead voice actresses as fictional idol group μ’s (Muse).
Korean band CNBLUE 7th Japanese single Truth lands in #4 and at #5 is rock band SCANDAL with their 18th single Departure.
