Namie is #4 Best selling artist of 2008

According to this 2008 overall sales report, Namie is the #4 Best selling artist of 2008, selling a total of 1,896,000 CDs/DVDs and earning 6.8 billion yen (around US$70 million) with "NAMIE AMURO PLAY TOUR 2007", "60s70s80s" and "BEST FICTION"!



In the top 5 best selling artist of 2008 are EXILE (#1), Ayumi Hamasaki (#2), B'z (#3) and kobukuro (#5). Interesting to note that B'z, Namie and kobukuro actually has higher total sales than Ayumi but they earned slightly lesser, hence making them ranked behind her.

It's interesting how Hamasaki has sold less singles, albums and DVDs (3rd column) than Namie and still managed to surpass her in billion yen (2nd column). I guess that means her releases are more expensive than Namie's XDDDD

Couldn't be prouder of her. Yes, all the best in the year of 2009. I have a feeling it will be great for a while. But regardless of anything, I will always be behind Namie, supporting her with all my heart. :)
