J-pop girl group SKE48's "Stand By You" blasts in at No. 1 on this week's Billboard Japan Hot 100 dated Dec. 10 to 16. The comeback single for main member Jurina Matsui ruled the physical sales metric with 270,083 copies sold in its first week, which landed the track at the top spot.
Returning to No. 2 on the Japan Hot 100 is DA PUMP's "U.S.A.," while Kenshi Yonezu's "Flamingo" and "Lemon" follow suit at No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.
Each of these songs racked up around the same total points as last week -- with "U.S.A." at No. 1 for video views, "Flamingo" at No. 1 for downloads and look-ups, and "Lemon" at No. 1 for karaoke -- outperforming the other tracks that couldn't accumulate the total necessary to overtake these long-running hits.
