Takahashi Minami’s first day sales for “Jane Doe”

5 Apr

Jane Doe

Sales started for Takahashi Minami’s solo debut single “Jane Doe” yesterday and Takamina ended up ranking 2nd behind EXILE’s “Konna Sekai Aisuru Tame”on the Oricon Daily Sales Chart.

Below are figures for her 1st day sales, in comparison with other solo debut sales from AKB48:

1. Maeda Atsuko: Flower 102, 483
2. Itano Tomomi: Dear J 86,681
3. Sashihara Rino: Sore Demo Suki Da Yo 56,879
4. Watanabe Mayu: Sunchro Tokimeki 50,145
5. Takahashi Minami: Jane Doe 45,645
6. Kashiwagi Yuki: Shortcake 45,333
7. Kasai Tomomi: Masaka 12,240
I honestly thought she’d do better since she is under Universal Music and has better vocals among all the solo debuts in AKB.
But i guess popularity really makes a difference.
Ending off with a live performance of “Jane Doe” from Music Japan!

Takahashi Minami’s debut solo single “Jane Doe”

21 Mar

AKB48’s General Manager Takahashi Minami has just unveiled the short mv for her debut solo single “Jane Doe”. This song will be used as the opening theme for Nakama Yukie’s upcoming drama “Saki”, set to release on April 3. Check out the short mv and full audio below!

Takamina has one of the better voices in AKB48, so i was actually hoping she’d release a song showcasing her vocals….but this song seems like it has some room for visual performance so we should look forward to her live soon!

More Kashiwagi Yuki promoting solo single “Shortcake”

Seems like management has shoved Yukirin’s alleged scandal under the carpet as she continues to promote actively for her single “Shortcake” on TV!

I’ve only been away a few days and she’s getting on more music programs than i can follow!

By the looks of it, “Shortcake”  is set to be the 2nd top selling single on Oricon Weekly Charts. Not bad for a solo debut!
