Singer YUI’s 20th single, “Green a.live,” has sold 56,000 CDs in its first week of release, reaching the No. 1 spot on Oricon’s chart for Oct 17.


YUI, 24, is a Japanese singer-songwriter. Born and raised in Fukuoka, she played live at various locations in her home town before being noticed by Sony Music Japan when she was 17 and released her debut single months later.

YUI wrote the song to encourage victims of the March 11 disaster. YUI visited a school in Miyagi Prefecture and held a mini live event there. She said that “I tried to put into the song all the emotions I felt when I went to Miyagi. I hope it will offer some hope to the people in the disaster-hit areas.”
