This week Tower Records Japan has chosen to announce the releases which stand at the top of their Bestseller lists for the year 2019. These rankings reflect the combined total sales of the Japanese, Imported, Limited, Analog, etc. versions of each Album/DVD sold through Tower Records stores from January 1st through November 30th of this year.
The Japanese Year-End chart was topped by Arashi’s “5×20 All the BEST!! 1999-2019”, while the Foreign Year-End chart has been topped by the original soundtrack for film Bohemian Rhapsody. The Jazz category was ruled by Hiromi Uehara’s “Spectrum”, with Isabelle Faust’s interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Violin Concertos taking the top spot in the Classical category. Finally, the top selling single and music DVD/Blu-ray at Tower Records stores were Arashi’s “BRAVE” and “5×20 All the BEST!! CLIPS 1999-2019” respectively.
Congratulations of course go to all of the victors, and the full Top 20s for the Japanese Album chart, the Foreign Album chart, and more will follow after the cut.
