Sandaime J Soul Brothers from Exile Tribe — "The JSB Legacy" (Rhythm Zone)

Sandaime J Soul Brothers find themselves in an exciting position with the release of "The JSB Legacy." Last year, they challenged a boy-band landscape dominated by Johnny & Associates acts — doing well in a full on battle with Arashi. Now Sandaime wants to prove it's not a passing fad.

Hype helped the group win its second Japan Record Award in December, and hype carried it into the release of "Legacy," which sold more than 476,000 copies in its first week. That makes it the best-selling album of the year so far.
