[News] Nicole tops sales with Japanese debut album

K-pop singer Nicole Jung, a former member of girl group KARA, is enjoying solo success with her debut Japanese album “Something Special.”

“Something Special” was released in Japan last Wednesday and has since topped sales at retail music chain Tower Records across the country.

Nicole’s debut Japanese album and first solo studio album became the bestselling K-pop album at Tower Records stores nationwide, a week after its release, according to Japanese K-pop media website K-style.

Nicole had moderate success with her debut Korean solo EP “First Romance” last year.

The 23-year-old singer debuted with KARA in 2007. She parted ways with the girl group and its management when her contract expired last year.


  1. Wowww.. Its really amazing for her to reach this level... Happy 4 her.. XD

  2. I really wish they would use the terminology correctly. It's her debut single, not album. And I find the headline a bit misleading as it is only in Tower Records that she's number one, and it's technically for a K-Pop Japanese release, which is definitely still amazing, I just don't want people to find reason to uncredited her achievements on false pretenses. The real result is Oricon, which I can say should be top 10 at the least. But I'm very happy with the success is garnering for this Japanese debut, and the support she is receiving. Can't wait for her Korean comeback and with that hopefully new fans thay she has gained through this past year will support her even more so.

    1. She got number #8 on the weekly Oricon chart :)

      The headline is to garner interest and to remind people that Nicole is exists and is working and is doing well lol XD
