LiSA’s “Homura” kicks off the new year at No. 1 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated Dec. 28, 2020 to Jan. 3, 2021, logging its seventh week at the top of the tally.
The COVID-19 pandemic kept people at home for the most part during the year-end holidays in Japan, boosting general viewership ratings of terrestrial television programs. This in turn has elevated songs by artists who made appearances on music specials and other programs during this period on the Billboard Japan charts.
LiSA’s “Homura” leads the pack, ruling downloads, look-ups (the number of times a CD is ripped to a computer), and karaoke this week, while also excelling in other metrics including streaming, Twitter mentions, and video views (all at No. 2), plus radio airplay (No. 3) and physical sales (No. 4).
