This week's countdown is continuing the May trend of shaking up the top 30 every week. Again, more than half the singles are new, and all of the top 5 are new. Many singles dropped off the charts this week, including most of the ones that were new last week. 「I Love You, I Need You Fukushima」 is still barely holding on to the #30 spot, and several K-pop artists like KARA, Shoujou Jidai, and Jang Keun Suk have proven they have staying power.
「Take Off」 by 2PM debuted at #4, which is honestly, a bit lower than I expected because it's the closing theme for Ao no Exorcist and a damn catchy song (I actually woke up to it on my alarm clock this morning). Perfume made it all the way to #2 with their single 「Laser Beam」. I like the song, and I like the group, but let's be honest, 「Laser Beam」 just sounds like a mashup of previous Perfume songs.
Taking the #1 spot this week is KAT-TUN with 「White」.
As always, these songs and more will be added to our Radio Station. This month, we're also going to start doing MP3 downloads of as many songs / videos on the countdown as possible. おたのしみに！
