Three #1 Singles?

In August 2006 Erika released 'Taiyou no Uta', under the name Kaoru Amane. In July 2007, she released 'FREE' under her own name. Both of these singles went to #1 on the Oricon charts. Later this month she will release 'Destination Nowhere'. If this single reaches the #1 position, she will be the first artist in almost 39 years to have their first three singles get #1.


According to research done by Oricon about three weeks before the release of the next single, about 52.5% of people were aware of the single. Usually when over 50% of people they ask know about the single, the sales will be fine. Most of the people who were interested in the single were younger, in their teens and most female. There isn't much of a gap between the ages and genders, but when they were asked if they were interested in the release of the single, and planned to purchase it, males from the 10-20 y/o age group had the highest support. It is believed that they are the key group who will purchase and support Erika's next single.

If she looked like a troll doll & sounded like a bleating goat ::coughAYUMIcough:: then I bet the demographic would be different. ;)
