"Step and Go" is a song recorded by Japanese boy band Arashi. It was released as a CD single in three editions: a regular edition containing instrumental versions of all the songs, a limited edition containing a DVD, and a special "Cubic Box" edition, which was only available to members of the group's official fan club in Japan. The latter edition contains an organizer set and a special edition CD. Unlike the group's previous release "Secret Talk", which contained only audio tracks, the limited edition of the single contains a filmed version of the talk.

Chart performance

The single debuted at number one on the Oricon and Billboard Japan charts and sold over 300,000 copies in its first week. When the Billboard Japan charts debuted on February 29, 2008, "Step and Go" was its first Hot 100 and Hot Singles Sales number one song.[1]

Despite the single's lack of direct tie-ins, the Oricon charts named "Step and Go" the twelfth best-selling single of 2008 in Japan.[2]
