Oricon releases their 2010 yearly ranking for “Artist Total Sales”!

Oricon has stamped the end of 2010 with the release of their yearly ranking for “Artist Total Sales“. The ranking is based on the gross total sales of CDs (both singles and albums), DVDs, and Blu-Ray Discs.

We’ve got the list of the ‘top 5′ artists with the highest record of sales down below!

1. Arashi – ¥17.163 billion/¥17,163,000,000 (approximately $204,321,424)

2. Tohoshinki - ¥9.431 billion/¥9,431,000,000 (approximately $112,273,808)

3. AKB48 – ¥7.092 billion/¥7,092,000,000 (approximately $84,408,472)

4. EXILE – ¥6.015 billion/¥6,015,000,000 (approximately $71,590,096)

5. Ikimonogakari – ¥5.618 billion/¥5,618,000,000 (approximately $66,865,032)

※None of the artists above have sales for Blu-Ray Discs

Those numbers are astounding, but they definitely provide solid statistics of the artists’ popularity!
