1. Girls’ Generation Still Going Strong on Charts

Girls’ Generation’s singles “MR. TAXI”, “Gee”, and “Genie” are still holding their spots on the Japan CD Weekly Top 100 Singles Chart (6/27-7/3) by placing #9, #24, and #36 respectively. These are impressive standings considering the singles were released some time ago (2010 for the latter two). The singles “MR. TAXI” and “Gee” have also placed #26 and #98 respectively on this week’s Billboard Japan Hot 100. Their first Japanese album is at #6 on Billboard Japan’s Top Albums.

Furthermore, it has been less than six weeks after the release of Girls’ Generation’s first Japanese album, and the girls are still going strong by ranking #6 on the weekly Oricon chart with 28,026 copies sold this past week.

It looks like their rankings are not going down anytime soon judging by their present ranks.
