Diamond is the first Japanese album by the South Korean girl group 4Minute. It was released in Japan on December 15, 2010. It was released in two editions, regular CD only, and limited CD+DVD. The limited edition includes a 52-page photobook that highlights some of their single releases and Japanese debuts.[1] The album sold 7,060 copies in Japan, peaking at the #27 spot in the Oricon weekly charts.[citation needed] The Korean edition of the album was released in January 25, 2011, but doesn't includes the Korean songs from their debut EP "For Muzik".


The first single from the album (and also their Japanese debut single) is a Japanese version of the song "Muzik". It was released on May 5, 2010 and included Japanese versions of the Korean hits "Muzik" and "Hot Issue", as well as the Korean version of "Muzik". It ranked at number 12 in Oricon's Daily Singles chart.[citation needed], 21 in the weekly chart,[citation needed], and sold 8,234 copies.[citation needed] The music video for the song shows the members in a blue room with flashing lights, along with scenes filmed in a red room. It also takes one of the Korean scenes where the members are together wearing the latex leggings.

The second single was a Japanese version of the song "I My Me Mine". It was released on July 28, 2010. It ranked #22 in Oricon Daily singles chart[citation needed] and #26 in Oricon Weekly singles chart[2] with 4,742 copies sold in the first week.[citation needed] It sold a total of 10,945 copies.[citation needed] The single also charted on South Korea's Gaon chart at number 15 overall[citation needed] and number 3 on the international chart.[citation needed]

The third and last single from the album was "First/Dreams Come True", their first double A-side single. It was released on October 27, 2010 and ranked no. 28 in Oricon's Weekly singles chart.[3] The single also included the song "Highlight" from Hit Your Heart. "Dreams Come True" was not part of Diamond, and was later included on the compilation album Best of 4Minute. A Korean version of the song "First" was later included on the group's first Korean album 4minutes Left.
