Information

"RIVER" is the 14th major single (16th overall) released by AKB48. It was released in two versions: a regular CD+DVD edition and a theater CD-only edition. The first press of the regular edition came with a nationwide handshake event ticket and a ticket to vote for a song to be performed at AKB48 Request Hour Setlist 100 2010, while all theater editions came with a "RIVER" handshake event ticket, an application ticket for a special "RIVER" event, and one member picture at random. The single debuted at #1 on the Oricon weekly chart, making it AKB48's first #1 single. It was the best-selling single by an idol group in the past seven years and also the second best-selling female artist single of 2009. The title track has been certified platinum by the RIAJ for full-song downloads of over 250,000.
