BoA, American-Japanese-Korean singer is going to release her 7th Japanese Album ‘IDENTITY‘. if she tops the chart, it’s going to be her 7th #1 Consecutive albums, which will make her as the only artist with 7 #1 consecutive albums in Japan (only behind ayumi hamasaki with 8 albums, she failed with her 9th album, GUILTY which was only peaked at number 2).
many people predicted that BoA won’t make it since faces a strong competition, FUNKY MONKEY BABYS. NINKI, Japanese prediction site predicted:
アーティスト ＦＵＮＫＹ ＭＯＮＫＥＹ ＢＡＢＹＳ
期待度ポイント アーティスト タイトル 発売日
82.30 ＢｏＡ ＩＤＥＮＴＩＴＹ 02/10
Ninki was 100% accurate about her previous singles. But, NINKI only did a survey from Japanese audiences. they didn’t count online pre-ordering site. Since according to Wikipedia, Avex said that the pre-ordering numbers were numerous it jumps over 150,000 copies pre-ordered.
So 82.30 + 150.00 equals to 232.30 copies sold! YAY!! Go BoA!!
