RMAG news

Creepy Nuts’ “Bling-Bang-Bang-Born” extends its stay atop the Billboard Japan Hot 100 to 15 weeks on the chart dated May 15.

Fifteen weeks at No. 1 on the Japan Hot 100 is second only to YOASOBI’s “Idol,” which holds the all-time record at 22 weeks. “BBBB” dominates four metrics this week — downloads, streaming, video views, and karaoke — and while points for each are down from the week before, the differences are slight: 91% for downloads week-over-week, 88% for streaming, 74% for radio, 87% for video and karaoke. A video of the duo’s performance of the long-running hit was recently featured on the Recording Academy’s “GRAMMYs Global Spin” segment and the hip-hop banger continues to reach global listeners. The track also continues to rule the Global Japan Songs chart.

Bowing at No. 2 is &TEAM’s “Samidare.” It’s the nine-member global group’s first single, though the band debuted in December 2022 from HYBE LABELS JAPAN. The track comes in at No. 2 for sales with 440,615 CDs sold in its first week, No. 7 for downloads with 5,295 units, No. 21 for radio, No. 36 for video, and No. 90 for streaming, accumulating points in a balanced way though it didn’t top any of the metrics.

At No. 3 is Hinatazaka46’s “Kimi wa Honey Dew.” The 11th single by the J-pop girl group sold 521,676 copies in its first week to hit No. 1 sales, while coming in at No. 34 for downloads, No. 15 for karaoke, and No. 89 for video.

Mrs. GREEN APPLE’s “Lilac” slips 2-4 this week, with points for radio dropping significantly by 20% from the week before. But points for video and karaoke have increased, and while not a metric included in the methodology of the Japan Hot 100, points for User Generated Content have also gained, a trend indicating that the track could further expand its reach. Additionally, five songs by the three-man band have climbed the Japan Hot 100 this week: “Dancehall” moves 26-22, “Ao to Natsu” 31-24, “Soranji” 33-29, “Romanticism” 91-83, and “Blue Ambience (feat. asmi)” hits No. 98.

The Billboard Japan Hot 100 combines physical and digital sales, audio streams, radio airplay, video views and karaoke data.
