L’Arc~en~Ciel’s latest single “X X X” hit #1 on the charts this week, with more than 81,000 copies sold. This is the band’s 21st number-one single, but the last time they topped either the single or album charts was three and a half years ago. With this, they now have achieved a #1 in 3 different decades (’90s, ’00s, ’10s), tying them with Southern All Stars and B’z.

Meanwhile, Korean group SHINee took #2 with their 3rd Japanese single “LUCIFER,” making them the first foreign artist in Oricon history to rank in the Top 3 with all of their first three singles.
