CNBLUE’s second major single “Where You Are” broke a record in Japan’s Oricon Charts. The original record remained unbeaten for the past forty years. Having just released the single last February 1st, CNBLUE took the number one spot on Oricon’s Weekly Chart after selling more than 60,000 copies in their first week.
According to reports, this is the first time that a foreign rock band has topped the weekly chart since 1971. At the time this feat was achieved by Canadian rock band Mashmakhan with the track “As The Years Go By.”
Other Korean acts and groups who have topped the Weekly Single chart are TVXQ, JYJ’s Jaejoong and Yoochun’s duet and Jang Geunsuk. However, compared to the mentioned Korean pop artists, CNBLUE managed to top the charts as Korean band, who play their own instruments.
CNBLUE’s second single “Where You Are” is composed by the group’s frontman Jung Yonghwa. Other tracks included in the new release are “Feeling” and “Get Away”, which was composed by Lee Jonghyun.
