TVXQ makes history on the Oricon with 'Android'


TVXQ has rewritten history on Japan's Oricon charts once again with the success of their newest single, 'Android'.

Released on July 11th, 'Android' not only topped the Oricon daily single chart on the day of its release, but went on to top the following Oricon daily charts and now the weekly chart as of the 17th! This marks the group's 11th time topping the Oricon weekly chart, bringing their total units in sales up to date to 3.1 million units.

Oricon stated, "In its first week of release, TVXQ's new single sold 152,000 units and topped the Oricon weekly singles chart. This brings TVXQ's total to 3.1 million units to date, which makes them the biggest selling international artist to have broken the 10 year and 10 month long record of the Carpenters, who sold 3,002,000 units."

TVXQ's previous record includes being the first international artist in 45 years to top the weekly singles chart 10 times with 'Still'. Their recent achievement with 'Android' has topped their own record once again.

The boys recently completed their 550,000 fan member tour and 100,000 fan member fan meet.
