Kumi Koda’s first single since she returned to show business after giving birth in the summer has reached the No. 1 spot on the Oricon chart, having sold more than 55,00 copies since its release on Oct 24.
The single is titled “Go to the Top” and is her 8th song to hit the No. 1 spot on Oricon. The year is ending well for Koda whose last album “JAPON ESQUE” -- released in January -- also reached the top spot.
“I languished, not knowing what direction I was going to take after life-changing events such as marriage and having a baby," she said in a statement. "But I decided to come back to the stage and I am thrilled beyond words to be back in the No. 1 spot."© Japan Today
