    ■First to break Elton John's record of 12 years and 4 months


    Korean 5-member group Tohoshinki have made the record as the highest selling artist for foreign artists in the initial sales for singles category. Their 29th single 「BREAK OUT!」was released on 27 January and became first on the 8 February Oricon Singles Ranking Chart.


    For the initial sales recorda for foreign artists, up until now, it had been held by Elton John's "Memorial Song for the former British Princess Diana", 「Candle In The Wind〜Tribute To Princess Diana, Britain's Princess」(released September 1997), which sold 184,000 copies. In this area, Tohoshinki broke this record which lasted for 12 years and 4 months, by selling 254,000 copies of their single, becoming the first foreign artist in history to pass the 200,000 mark in initial sales.

    In addition to becoming first place for foreign artists in initial sales, this will also be Tohoshinki's 7th work to add on to their list of achievements for getting a #1 single, making this a double achievement for them.

    Their first single in 2010 is also the theme song for NHK Drama 8's 『とめはねっ!鈴里高校書道部』. The B-side to this song is the solo number 「XIAHTIC」which was written, composed and arranged by Junsu.
