BTS is the only foreign artist on Oricon's 'Top 10 Artist Sales of 2018'

BTS' remarkable achievements are continuing into Japan. 

On December 20, Oricon, the major Japanese music chart, released the rankings for the 'Top 10 Artist Sales of 2018.' Oricon tallied the total sales of artists in Japan from December 11, 2017 to December 8, 2018.

The Big Hit Entertainment boy group is at #6 for making 5.27 billion yen (47 million USD) in sales. This is the first time BTS entered the top 10 for sales in Japan. They are also the only foreign act on this year's top 10 ranking.

Back in April, BTS released the 3rd Japanese album 'Face Yourself,' which has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of Japan

I miss SMAP.......


Congrats to BTS, though! Hoping to see Twice there next year and for music to continue to break socio-political barriers between the two countries. Also can't wait for Big Bang's return. I lived in Japan when they broke onto the scene there. It was great to watch my kids in class rocking out to Korean lyrics.

The BTS's fame will last no more than two and a half years. After that BIGBANG will come back and put those overrated and overhyped boys on the floor.

akp site followers are 80% YG stans and if you saw the downvote in blackpink articles because other yg groups stan can't stand they are the more popular in the company right now .. and for BTS they hate them because obviously are in the top of kpop right now that why they downvote every bts articles and hype exo articles.. forgeting that they hate them too when they are on the top too just years ago.. I can understand yg other group stan for being bitter but I feel sorry for big bang a "senior group" still have immature fans

I dare you to go comment in akp twitter cowards when you bitter comardes are nothing there ..unfortunately there is no downvote button there

flop tvxq made $51M in 3 days in Nissan stadium, dear. they just don't waste ~12hours for each album's handshake events to boost up sales xD every group has a peak time. tvxq was at #2 making $86M from physical sales in japan at their peak in 2010. it's funny how armys are so hyped, they think bts will sell this much forever xD 1 or max 2 years more, then they will be forgotten in japan

Try to start recognizing the trolls and you wont be triggered unnecessarily. No Army attacks Tvxq here, just a troll whose goal is to ignite tension and fanwars. And Army can hype Bangtan all they want, no need to mock that. Every fan hypes for their fav and hopes for the future. Peace ^^
