BoA’s LOVE LETTER.. a flop?! Not Really!! + Other news




BoA’s 23rd Japanese Single 「LOVE LETTER」 ranked #3 on Oriocn with sales over 28,000 copies in 6 days. Slightly better than her previous one 「Sweet Impact」 (26k) but still a rather poor performance for a BoA single, especially a Ballad single with 3 quality songs! I was actually shocked by this number since BoA has been promoting the single very well! More than 4 TV Performances (and counting), Magazine Appearances, a Special Site & a Special LOVE LETTER Event!!

In the other hand, the song has been doing well on Downloads, both Mobile & PC downloads. LOVE LETTER hit #1 on iTunes and #4 on Chaku-Uta . The song has just been released on and hit #2 in a few days only while (Beautiful Flowers ranked #12 and Diamond Heart #17)

Conclusion: The song is far from being a flop, really! She hit #3 on the Physical Charts, and with the market’s decline, 28,000 in 6 days is no longer a flop IMO. Digital Sales show the real strength of the single, though we’re still waiting for the RIAJ certification , I’m pretty sure the song will hit more than a Double Platinum (500,000).

+BoA featured in SEAMO’s next Album!

Yes, that’s true! A Collaboration song between Hip-Hop Singer SEAMO and Pop Princess BoA will be available on SEAMO‘s New Album ROUND ABOUT. The Song’s title is 「Hey Boy, Hey Girl」 this will be quite interesting 😀 It’s been a long time since BoA has done any collab :/ The Album is set to be released on October 31st.
