Hey! Say! JUMP’s “Negative Fighter” rules as three songs debut in the top 10 on this week’s Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated May 10 to 16. The eight-member boy band’s 29th single debuts at No. 1 with 215,704 CDs sold in its first week, leading physical sales, look-ups, and Twitter mentions.

Bowing at No. 2 is HKT48’s “Kimi to dokoka e ikitai” (“I want to go somewhere with you”), the girl group’s 14th single. Selling 193,066 copies in its first week — about 20,000 more than the previous single, “3-2” (172,981) — the song comes in at No. 2 for sales, which mainly powered the song to its debut position. The track also comes in at No. 20 for look-ups and No. 89 for Twitter.
