As we reported earlier, Girls’ Generation’s first Japanese album, “Girls’ Generation”, surpassed one million copies shipped. The Recording Industry Association of Japan has now officially certified the album as a million shipper, making Girls’ Generation only the second Korean artist after BoA to receive this certification.

Girls’ Generation’s first Japanese album was praised by critics and fans alike for its distinct electronic sound that really stood apart from their previous work. The album continues to sell thousands of copies a week, passing over 850,000 copies sold on the Oricon chart and showing how much lasting appeal Girls’ Generation has in Japan.

The certification comes just ahead of their next Japanese single, “Paparazzi”, set to be released on June 27th.
