I'm worried though because Ayumi Hamasaki has just released a HUGE album with all her singles on but I WANT NAMIE TO STAY AT NUMBER 1! I really hope she can...:(

Yeah, same here.. I think Ayumi wants all promotion and money on her now. =_=

I'd like for Namie to stay on #1 for a few more months please. :D

i really hope the same 4 Namie. i was so mad
Ayumi was putting out an album too but Namie will always b #1!

Namie's and Ayumi's covers look similar. They are both airbrushed/computer generated =/

anyway, WooT!! Hopefully she stay #1 for a longer time =D

Yea... I thought it was waay to much of a coincidence that Hamasaki was putting out a singles collection now. And the cover was strikingly similar to Amuro-san's CD Ver.

I think that this move (made by Hamasaki) is really low. ... Now, I'm not surprised that some of her fans can be so mean (towards other top artists).

Hey when the cover just came out... I said that the covers were similar. And everyone jumped on me saying it wasn't. lol
Well i really do hope that she stays on top. She deserves.

Ayumi always looks airbrushed to me lol XD. And I very much doubt BF will keep the number one spot. There's no way the 7th week sales of an album are gonna be able to compete with the first week sales of another. Amuro is averaging with like 50,000 copies a week now, and there's no way an Ayu album would debut with sales that low. :( (I hope I'm dead wrong on this lol >_<)

I'm glad Namie was able to break all the records and stuff that she did so far, so it's not TOO upsetting. I'd really like to see 7 weeks at #1 tho...

Ayumi Hamasaki has 10th anniversary. Of course avex trax is going to release best album. They can't pass that up after Namie's Best Fiction sales. Since when is six week difference between close by eachother. I don't think Ayumi Hamsaki is going to have close total sale to Namie. She released A Best 2 last year. If she'd I'm shocked for life.
But I don't get what you guys are talking when you say the covers are similar? They aren't similar. Wait, do you mean they are similar because they are airbrush. But so is every other cover to.
Before anybody says I'm more Ayumi Hamasaki fan then Namie Amuro, I'm not. I don't get why you guys need always put them up against eachother. Do you guys think Avex Trax knew that Best Fiction would stay at number 1 for six weeks. That's awesome and Namie doesn't need another week at number 1. Even though would like to see that. She's the queen this year and Ayumi Hamasaki can't do nothing about that.
Now I'm waiting and hoping for Namie to pass EXILE LOVE. That album have sold close to 1,5 miliion.

Even though i want namie to stay for another week, 6 weeks is STILL a damn long time to be staying at number one. I'm not like an expert on album sales or whatever, but that's still soooooo long!
Hope for the best!

I really don't understand all this tension fans do around ayu and Namie.
They have totally diferent music styles! OMG!!!!

Ayumi is so right releasing teh A COMPLETE, just 'cause it's her 10th anniversary!... Shame on Namie that did nothing abouher 10th or 15th anniversary.. I really hope she does a huge thing around her 15th solo anniversary or 20th ...

A COMPLETE will for sure outsell BEST FICTION... I never had a doubt about it...

she has already sold over 325k in 2 days...

I really don't think that Namie sucess depends on ayumi failure... Best Fiction is a very sucessful album, so as A Complete...

Julie-chan said...

and, before anyone freak out here, I do love namie more than I like ayu..

I preffer Koda Kumi, Tohoshinki, Arashi, Utada and etc. over Ayumi..

But really don't hate ayumi... I have her 2 best albuns realesed last year...

Namie won't be number 1 next week, Ayumi will. On the other hand, Ayumi's 1st week sales will most likely be lower than Namie's first week sales.

Namie sold like 185000+ on her first day, 100000+ on the 2nd and 70000+ on her third (I don't have the exact number). Ayumi sold like 116000+ on her first day, 70000+ on the 2nd and 30000-something on the 3rd day (again, I don't have the exact numbers and I'm too lazy to look them up).

Ayumi's sales being so much lower than Namie's might be due to her releasing single collections and such very often (wasn't there one last year? Or was it perhaps this year?), whereas Namie hadn't released one since 2002.

Either way, good luck to both - although, I prefer Namie much more ^_^

I would really aprecciate if namie puts some cool stuffs on her first press!!!

Keychains, photobooks, cards and of course posters...

But I really think she doesn't mind about that... only thing she cares is about her songs.. She is so amazing... even as an Idol she dosen't need to sell every pic she takes or fly on stage to sell a lot and do the best concerts..

OMG, wish I lived on Japan now, to watch live Best Fiction Tour T___T

Suraj said...

I WISH THE SAME THING TOO. its gonna be HUGEEE. but im soo glad il be able to watch it on Youtube :) Namie is gonna do great on the tour. all the best! :D
