Mr. Nimbus | 01/11/2024

Number_i’s “GOAT” blasts in at No. 1 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated Jan. 10.

Number_i is the new group formed by members Sho Hirano, Yuta Jinguji, and Yuta Kishi, three former members of King & Prince. The trio’s first digital single dropped on New Year’s Day and launched at No. 1 for downloads, radio airplay, and video views, while coming in at No. 15 for streaming with 4,801,615 weekly streams. First-week figures for the track placed it far ahead of the song at No. 2 on the Japan Hot 100 — Ado’s “Show” — with downloads hitting 64,321 units (3.8 times the number for “Show”) and 7,243,154 video views (2.3 times).

Songs that enjoyed exposure on year-end music programs continue to rise on the charts this week, with two iconic live shows — the 65th Japan Record Awards and the 74th NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen — greatly influencing the action.

Ado’s “Show” slips to No. 2 after extending its record to 13 weeks at No. 1 last week. The long-running hit comes in at No. 2 for downloads and streaming, with the former racking up 16,740 units (up 14%) and the latter 10,318,975 streams (up 0.6%). Radio jumped 24-11, indicating that the track is also being played on platforms other than ground-based TV broadcasts.

YOASOBI’s “Idol” comes in at No. 3, also boosted by a jaw-dropping staging of this monster hit track on NHK’s year-end live music extravaganza, with more than a dozen A-list J-pop and K-pop idol groups, dance teams and individuals gracing the stage to assist the superstar duo’s first-ever live performance of their global hit on TV. The record-holder for most weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100 is on the rise again, with downloads up 67% to 16,740 units (No. 3), streaming up 13% to 10,571,870 streams (No. 1) and video up 11% to 2,341,628 views (No. 3). Like Ado’s “Show,” the Oshi no Ko opener has gained new fans through its year-end exposure.

Mrs. GREEN APPLE’s “Que Sera Sera,” winner of the 2023 Grand Prix at the 65th Japan Record Awards, rises to No. 4 after jumping 17-7 last week. Points for streaming increased significantly, up 23% with 7,759,163 views, indicating that the song is reaching a new generations of fans. “Dance Hall,” which the three-man band performed on Kohaku, rose 18-12 this week, and like Vaundy’s “Kaiju no Hanauta” — a karaoke favorite that continued to chart in the upper tiers of the Japan Hot 100 throughout last year after the 23-year-old performed it on Kohaku in 2022 — Mrs. GREEN APPLE could have another hit song in the making this year.
