If you would like for your purchase to count on Oricon, you must purchase your album through someone that is buying the album directly in Japan (fan organized group orders, eBay [look for users shipping “From Japan”], etc.) -OR- You can purchase through through a proxy service like Buyee, From Japan, Tenso, etc. More information on Oricon can be found here~! For overachievers who want to count on Oricon and get those pre-order bonuses, services like Buyee are going to be your friend (all Japanese purchase links can be found on Taemin’s website). According to J-Shawols, Fanclub versions do not count on Oricon.
Taemin’s 3rd Japanese mini album “Famous” was announced untitled on the first day of Taemin’s 1st Arena Tour 「TAEMIN ARENA TOUR 2019 ～X™️～」, June 8th, 2019 (title spoiled by Taemin at concert in Osaka 6/19; confirmed by UMJ on 6/25 – just after the music video shooting). The arena tour began 7 months after his last tour in Japan in the Fall and is scheduled to run from June 8th-August 12th. With its announcement, the album has not yet been named, but on the first day of X™️, Taemin said that the new mini album would have 6 songs in total including 2 songs performed at the concert: “Slave” & “Colors”. Neither of these two songs are the title track which he said will be an intense dance track like “hip-hop”. The new album will have 3 versions: Regular & 2 Limited Editions. You can follow SHINee’s Japanese Twitter, Instagram, & Taemin’s JP Website for the latest updates~!
The MV for ‘Famous’ was released on 7/27 along with the digital pre-order. During the pre-order period, fans could download the title track as a pre-release before the full album drops digitally on 8/4. Rikimaru was the choreographer for ‘Famous’ and he was also the choreographer for Taemin’s other songs ‘Tiger’, ‘Into The Rhythm’, ‘Mars’, ‘Eclipse’, and ‘Slave’. Rikimaru said that the choreography was inspired by Medusa’s snakes turning people to stone in Greek mythology, wanting Taemin to entrance his audience.
