Girls’ Generation is showing constant popularity in Japan despite being active in South Korea now.
The Recording Industry Association of Japan has released the certificate list according to the music sales of the last four months. According to this list, Girls’ Generation’s “MR. TAXI”, which was released on the 26th of April 2011, has been certified double-platinum. The certificate was awarded to the song in the ringtone (full version) division. Double-platinum certificates are only awarded to songs which have surpassed the 500,000 mark. In this case, the ringtone has been downloaded more than 500, 000 times.
This only proves how popular “MR. TAXI” is in spite of the fact that it was released over a year ago.
