Official HIGE DANdism's "Pretender" rules the latest Billboard Japan Streaming Songs tally with 5,964,237 weekly streams, extending its reign to 15 weeks and hitting a total of 80 million streams.

The J-pop piano band's single joins the ranks of only several tracks that have sailed past the 80 million mark to date: DAOKO & Kenshi Yonezu's "Uchiage Hanabi," Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You," DA PUMP's "U.S.A.," Aimyon's "Marigold," "Kimi wa Rock wo Kikanai," and "Konya Konomama." "Pretender" was also the quickest to reach this milestone at 20 weeks since entering the chart.

Looking at the top 10 of the streaming chart dated Sept. 9 (week of Aug. 26 to Sept. 1), milet's "us" jumps 54-8 and marks her first top 10 entry with 1,990,037 streams.    

After Gen Hoshino released his catalog on streaming services Friday (Aug. 30), four songs -- "Koi," "Idea," "SUN," and "Pop Virus" -- have appeared in the streaming top 100, with his mega-hit single "Koi" climbing the highest at No. 41. The hitmaker's first week of streaming consisted of only three days, so the next tally will show how his songs have performed after a full week.

Taylor Swift's latest album, Lover, sends six songs into the top 100, including the title track -- which climbed the highest -- and her leading singles "ME!" featuring Panic! at the Disco's Brendon Urie and "You Need to Calm Down." The singer will travel to Japan in November to promote her new album, which will surely boost her latest offerings on the Japan streaming chart.
