Hikaru Utada’s “One Last Kiss” rises to No. 1 on the latest Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated March 15 to 21, after debuting last week at No. 2. The theme of the highly anticipated Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 Thrice Upon a Time is the J-pop superstar’s first No. 1 song on the Japan Hot 100 in over 10 years — she last hit No. 1 on the chart dated Dec. 6, 2010, with “Goodbye Happiness.”
The 38-year-old singer-songwriter hit No. 1 on the Japan Hot Albums chart last week with the project featuring “One Last Kiss,” which continues to lead downloads this week. The song also comes in at No. 2 for radio airplay, No. 3 for video views, No. 6 for streaming, and No. 9 for Twitter mentions.
