FT Island up #3 on Oricon daily singles chart with Japanese major debut single ‘Flower Rock’

Idol band FT Island gets a good start for their advance into the Japanese major music industry.

FT Island released their major Japanese debut single ‘Flower Rock’ on 19th May. And according to Japanese music chart Oricon Daily Singles Chart, FT Island is up #3 on the day of the single release.

An official from FT Island’s side revealed, “The boys are also #3 after group Arashi who are at #2 on Japanese Tower Record charts. They also held a fansigning event for their album release at Tower Record Shibuya, and we are surprised to see that their albums were sold out at the store in just 1 hour.”

FT Island has been releasing albums in Japan since last year under an indie label, and early this year, they signed with Warner Music Japan for their major Japanese debut.

Meanwhile, the group will have their live event on 22nd and 23rd May in Osaka and Tokyo.

  2. i love this kind of rock from FT. Island!!
    they must be making this kind of music in korea!!
    and congratulations for being #2 in the oricon daily!!

  3. It’s not bad..

    I hope they could continue this style when in Korea..

    Now, they could proudly say they’re a rock band.

  4. 6k is not bad for a Korean band’s debut single in Japan~~
    although given it’s daily chart, the ranking doesn’t mean anything… guess a lot of other singers/groups may avoid releasing on the same day as Arashi…
    Anyway, FTIsland Ganbate~~

  5. Ooo. I love j-rock.
    This song is okay, it’ll probably grow on me after a few more listens 😀

  6. Number 3 spot, thats pretty good. Im not surprised their behind Arashi since their really popular in Japan. I wonder whos at number one? Anyways FT Island Hwaiting!!!!!!!!!!!!!<3

    • No.1 is Arashi. Jong Hun tweeted about it this afternoon, I’m sure you’ve seen it already considering you’re an FT Island fans.

  7. FT Island is ok… but CNblue is better 😀

    CNblue Sugoi!! gambaette kudasai ❤

  8. not bad selling 6k. compared to arashi selling around 232k and the artist at ranked 2 with 9k.
    hope it gets more than 10k or so. Physical sales has been pretty bad nowadays >.<
