    Sekai ni Hitotsu Dake no Hana is a legend. I totally unironically love that song. Fun fact: it sold over 400k copies in 2016, 13 years after release and since then its sold over 100k more. The longevity.

    BTS coming for that million with teir next single.

    In japan does a single mean physical copy of one song? Or is even a mini considered single?

    A single can have from 2 songs like "Brave" by Arashi, which were literally the song and the karaoke version, or be almost a mini album with 5 songs.

    they usually don't do mini, just single and album
    singers will release multiple singles over a year or two, then release their album included those singles + some more tracks.

    singles are usually 2-3 tracks + instruments
    there are people who my have 5-6 tracks but it still count as single
    and yes it's released as a physical
