Mobile downloads for Konya hit half a million!

Source

According to barks, chaku uta downloads to mobile phones for the Tokyo No.1 Soul Set/Halcali collaboration Konya wa Boogie Back hit 30,000 mid October, and surpassed the half a million mark in November.

While I honestly had a hard time mustering anything more than mild interest towards the actual song itself, those are incredible figures to go Halcali's way, and despite it likely being sold more on the strength of the cover song as opposed to the band this will surely have a significant impact on Halcali's career.

So where now, Sony?

Thanks to amj!

More than half a million!! This is wonderful news. Thanks for sharing it with us.

From what I have read on their official site, they have been performing a lot recently, which is also a good sign.

I'm hoping after this, Sony can say, "Just kidding!" and we and the girls can pick up from 2004 for real this time.

Hoping!

apparently they've been recording new material with ram rider: http://ramrider.syncl.jp/?p=diary&di=253826&ref=rss

last song they did with him, 'FLASH', was brilliant, so i'm quite hyped right now.

Could it be that the answer from Sony is to do it all over again in January?

well, konya wa boogie back wasn't even edited by sony, but by avex (tokyo no.1 soul set's label) so i doubt sony has anything to do in this.

sony wanting to attach their girls again to a group that they created a popular single with would be a pretty good idea.

and it looks like the girls are releasing their owns single the same day as the new tokyo no. 1 soul set one:

B-side isn't listed on CDJapan, but it looks like it is gonna be called "YES."

This is shaping up to be a huge month for HALCALI! I'm excited for this. I hope Sony does it all right this time. Promos EVERYWHERE.
