Avril Lavigne's Under My Skin Platinum plus in Japan!

TORONTO, May 18 /CNW/ - Avril Lavigne's sophomore CD, Under My Skin, hit an ultimate high in Japan, scanning more than platinum with an incredible 286,894 units sold in the first week (200,000 is platinum in that territory). The album landed the No. 1 position in the country's sales chart, a rare accomplishment for a non-domestic artist in Japan. The highly anticipated Under My Skin hits stores in Canada and the rest of the world next week. With worldwide sales surpassing a phenomenal 15 million, achieving diamond record status (1 million) at home in Canada, Avril Lavigne's 2002 debut release, Let Go, set all eyes and ears on this Napanee, Ontario native. Three number one singles, eight Grammy nominations, four Juno awards and a sold out world tour has placed her amongst the most successful artists in history.

The first single from Under My Skin, 'Don't Tell Me' went to No. 1 at CHR. After being added as 'The Big One' to MuchMusic, the video is climbing the chart, perched at No. 7 this week. Watch for her next week on Late Night With David Letterman (May 24th), Live with Regis & Kelly (May 25th) and a MuchMusic Intimate & Interactive special performance (May 28th).
