B'z is at it again. One day before the official release, 50,335 copies of B'z new single Sayonara Kizu Darake no Hibi yo were sold across Japan, topping the Oricon daily single chart for the 44th time in a row. They continue to release #1 hit singles one after another, which is probably also because of the huge fanbase that B'z has in Japan. But honestly, they deserve it, right? The new single just ROCKS!!
We are now waiting for the sales data from today, which will be posted on Oricon tomorrow. Sales are expected to go up to more than 100,000 sold copies total. Will this be another platinum single for B'z?
First of all, throughout the show, they presented the best 120 songs that cheer you up. The audience voted Negai 107th and ultra soul 5th place. This time every artist performed two songs. B'z performed their new single "Sayonara Kizu Darake no Hibi yo" and "Brotherhood". Brotherhood is intended to cheer up the people that have been affected by the earthquake. As such Koshi changed one line: He sang "dare mo ga mainichi kutakuta ni natteru"(Everybody's getting exhausted every day) instead of "kocchi datte mainichi kutakuta ni natteru"("I'm getting exhausted every day").

Oh and here's a little trivia for you B'z fans: Because of this song(Brotherhood), B'z fans call each other "B'z brother" in Japan.
Update: Put the Youtube video back there... if you like the song, buy the single.

Due to the emergency situation caused by last Friday's earthquake, the release of new single "Sayonara Kizu Darake no Hibi yo" was postponed, as we can learn on B'z official website. The reason for this are production as well as distribution difficulties.
This isn't a big surprise, as many other artists and recording labels have already postponed release scheduled for March 23th and 30th.
Also, B'z the Store, B'z PARTY Store, and VERMILLION STUDIO online stores have temporarily ceased activities.
A new release date has yet to be arranged.
Starting today, B'z new song "Sayonara Kizu Darake no Hibi yo" will be broadcasted by radio stations throughout Japan. People in Japan can also download the chaku-uta version of the song to use it as a ringtone for their mobile phone. The single is going to be released on March 30th, 2011.
