J-Pop Boy Band Kanjani 8 Bows at No. 1, DA PUMP Holds at No. 2 on Japan Hot 100
J-pop boy band Kanjani 8's "Koko Ni" debuts at No. 1 on this week's Billboard Japan Hot 100 dated Sept. 3 to 9 with 247,357 copies sold. The song written by the popular punk band WANIMA for the now six-member Johnny's group was mostly powered by the physical metrics of the chart's measurement, coming in at No. 1 for physical sales and look-ups, which counts the number of times a CD is ripped to a computer.
DA PUMP's "U.S.A." stays at No. 2, continuing to glide at No. 1 for streaming and video views for the 11th week in a row. The song rose 6-4 this week for downloads as well and still has a chance to snag the coveted top spot on the Japan Hot 100.
Aimer's "Black Bird" bows at No. 3 this week, racking up points in a way that indicates the appeal of the song itself. The theme for the movie Kasane that opened in Japanese theaters last Friday (Sept. 7) excelled in downloads (No. 1), physical sales (No. 6), streaming, look-ups (both No. 12), and radio airplay (No. 13), while other metrics such as Twitter mentions (No. 42) and video views (No. 79) lagged behind.
The Billboard Japan Hot 100 combines physical and digital sales, radio airplay, Twitter mentions, YouTube and GYAO! video views, Gracenote look-ups and audio streams from Apple Music, AWA, Google Play Music, KKBOK, LINE MUSIC, Rakuten Music, Recochoku provided by Gfk Japan, as well as streaming counts based on lyrics displayed on PetitLyrics.
