According to Oricon on the 9th, TXT‘s Japanese single “CHIKAI” (誓い) sold 359,000 copies in its first week, securing the top spot on the weekly single ranking (July 15 issue, period: July 1-7). This is the highest weekly sales for a single by a foreign artist in Japan this year.

This success follows their previous Japanese single “GOOD BOY GONE BAD,” which also sold over 300,000 copies in its first week. Compared to their debut Japanese single “MAGIC HOUR,” which sold about 84,000 copies in its first week, “CHIKAI” shows a huge increase, highlighting TXT‘s rapid growth.

“CHIKAI” also topped the “Daily Single Ranking.” It stayed number one for three days after release, dropped to second for two days, and then returned to the top on July 8 (for July 7) with 6,887 copies sold.

Released on July 3, “CHIKAI” includes the title track “We’ll Never Change,” “Deja Vu [Japanese Ver.],” and “Kitto Zutto.” “We’ll Never Change” gained attention as it was chosen as the theme song for the popular Japanese NTV program “DayDay.” before its official release. The song debuted at number four on Oricon’s “Daily Digital Single Ranking” on July 3 and remained in the top ranks for five consecutive days.

TXT is actively promoting their new release in Japan. They appeared on Fuji TV’s “2024 FNS Music Festival Summer” and NTV’s “THE MUSIC DAY 2024,” performing new songs along with special performances by Taehyun and Hueningkai. Fans are excited for their upcoming appearances on TV Asahi’s “Music Station” on July 12, TBS’s “Music Day 2024” on July 13, and Fuji TV’s “Mezamashi Live” on August 12.

Additionally, TXT‘s first Japanese dome tour is highly anticipated. Starting at Tokyo Dome on July 10-11, the “TOMORROW X TOGETHER WORLD TOUR IN JAPAN” will also visit Kyocera Dome Osaka, Vantelin Dome Nagoya, and Mizuho PayPay Dome Fukuoka.

With this tour, TXT will be the fastest Korean artists to hold a dome tour in Japan after their debut.
