AKB48 Beginner becomes million seller

Beginner, a single released by all-girl Japanese pop idol group AKB48 last October, has sold more than one million copies, music information provider Oricon Inc said Monday.

The song became the first million-seller single in Japan in three years and five months, since sales of Sen-no kaze-ni natte sung by tenor Masafumi Akikawa passed the one million mark in August 2007.
