NEW LOVE Debuts at #1 with Increased Sales
The twenty-first B’z album NEW LOVE has debuted at the top of the Oricon charts with 207,000 physical copies. Though not led by a single (a first for them) and with the continued decline of physical sales for non-idol groups, the album outsold 2017’s DINOSAUR and almost matched EPIC DAY without television appearances or extensive marketing.
Oricon reports B’z album sales are now at 46,872,000. This extends the record for Most Albums Sold and Most Number-One Albums with their eighteenth consecutive studio album and twenty-ninth top album overall (when factoring in compilations and mini albums).
If you’re on the fence, check out three music videos from the B’z YouTube Channel:
B’z “CHAMP” Music Video Now Available!”
On the verge of the new studio album DINOSAUR coming November 29, B’z have made available a full music video for album song “CHAMP”. An excerpt from the video was previously included in the album commercial that began airing recently. Best of all is that the video also samples live footage of the song from its appearances during B’z SHOWCASE 2017 -B’z In Your Town- where it was performed as part of the encore.
You can see the full version of the “CHAMP” music video including the new live footage below:
B’z “Dinosaur” Music Video Now Available!
As everyone expected, a promotional video of some form for the upcoming album DINOSAUR was inevitable, and today we have it with the debut of a full-length music video for album opener “Dinosaur“! It had been everyone’s hope that the titular track, which was naturally speculated to be the song featured in the 30th anniversary year teaser, would not be only a brief guitar introduction—and thankfully, it is not! “Dinosaur” is a full-fledged song all unto its own and is available to hear in full below:
“Seimei” Short Music Video Now Available!
The short music video for “Seimei” previewed in its recent commercial has now been uploaded to YouTube! Its single “Seimei/Still Alive” is now under one week away.
The animation contained within is almost certainly provided by the same studio that produced the vignette for Koshi Inaba’s solo music video “Hane” back in 2016, which can be viewed subtitled here.
