Morning Musume's 53rd Single, "Brainstorming / Kimi Sae Ireba Nani mo Iranai" Ranked 1st in Oricon Weekly Ranking & Continuing Their Top 10 Record


Morning Musume’s 53rd single “Brainstorming/Kimi sae Ireba Nani mo Iranai” (released on April 17) sold 94,037 copies in the first week, topping Oricon’s weekly single chart. As their previous single “Help me!!” (released in January) also grabbed the No.1 spot, this is their 2nd consecutive single to top the chart.

It’s been 11 years and 2 months since Morning Musume last had 2 consecutive singles to top the chart with ”Mr.Moonlight~Ai no Big Band~” (released in October 2001) and “Souda! We’re ALIVE” (released in February 2002) when Iida Kaori was leading the group. Therefore, this will be the first time to accomplish it for the current members, including leader Michishige Sayumi.

This also marked their 53rd single to rank in the TOP10, and with this single, they renewed their own record for “the most number of singles ranked in TOP10.”

“Brainstorming/Kimi sae Ireba Nani mo Iranai” is the last single for Tanaka Reina who will be graduating after the group’s live concert at Nippon Budokan on May 21. She left the comment, “I am really happy to be able to grab the No.1 with the single I’m graduating with! This would not have been possible without everyone’s support. I want to tell them ‘Thank you’ from bottom of my heart.
