Actually … Nogizaka46 with the worst Chart Entry in Years

#乃木坂46 – Japanese idol group Nogizaka46 released their 29th single “Actually…” on 23 March 2022. The single sold 345,669 copies on the first day, and daily sales totaled 463,439 copies for the first week. This was consistently enough to take first places in the ORICON Daily Single and Weekly Single Chart but compared to pre-Corona singles, sales have halved. Currently, sales are at the same level as 2014.

Durch den Ausfall des ursprünglichen Centers Nakanishi Aruno sah sich das Management gezwungen den Song komplett neu zu produzeren. Dazu wurde eine neue Choreografie mit einem Doppel-Center aus Saito Asuka und Yamashita Mizuki einstudiert, der Song ohne Nakanishi Aruno neu gemixt und ein neues Musikvideo produziert. Diese Version des Songs und das Video sind beide nicht auf der 29. Single “Actually…” enthalten. Die Single enthält die ursprünglichen Versionen mit Nakanishi Aruno.
