SNSD sells over 500,000 copies of Japanese 1st Album!

Girls' Generation's successful breakthrough into Japan has culminated in another milestone: their debut Japanese album "Girls' Generation" has been certified double platinum by the RIAJ. The RIAJ, or Recording Industry Association of Japan, recognizes 250,000 copies sold as platinum certification. With the double platinum certification, the "Girls' Generation" album has officially sold over 500,000 copies in just over a month after its June 1 release.

This is the latest indication of the overwhelming success that Girls' Generation has achieved in Japan. On July 6, Tower Records announced that Girls' Generation topped their June chart with their debut album. Last month, Oricon revealed that Girls' Generation had the highest earnings by a foreign artist in Japan for the first half of 2011, as they recorded 2.6 billion yen in total sales.

The strong push into the Japanese market for the first seven months of 2011 will continue with the final performance of the Japan Arena Concert Tour, which will take place in Fukuoka on July 17.
