On its 10th week on the Japan Hot 100, “Show” surpasses the six-week record set by “New Genesis” (as Uta from One Piece Film Red). The USJ Halloween event theme is at No. 1 for streaming and video views, No. 2 for downloads, No. 6 for karaoke, and No. 15 for radio. Among these, points for radio increased by about 2.4 percent from the previous week, indicating that the song is steadily expanding its reach to the general public outside Ado’s core fan base. Overall points totaled 11,812, down by approximately 15 percent, but remains 1.2 times higher than the song at No. 2 this week.
The top 10 is dominated by songs by boy bands this week. IMP.’s “CRUISIN’” leads the pack, bowing at No. 2. This song was released digitally worldwide on Aug. 18 and topped downloads on the chart dated Aug. 30 with 14,259 units on its first week. The physical version of the group’s first single dropped Nov. 8 and sold 98,780 copies, hitting No. 2 for sales. While the digital version has been out for a while now, it was downloaded 3,801 times this week to come in at No. 12 for the metric, and the track also rules radio airplay, collectively powering the track to its No. 2 spot on the Japan Hot 100.
King & Prince’s “Aishi Ikirukoto” bows at No. 3. The title track off the group’s 14th single is the theme song for the legal thriller Houteiyuugi starring member Ren Nagase. After going on sale Nov. 8, the song sold 353,077 CDs in its first week, falling short of the 546,829 first-week sales of the group’s previous single, “Nanimono,” but still hits No. 1 for the metric by a wide margin over its competitors.
THE RAMPAGE from EXILE TRIBE’s “Katasumi” rockets 80-5 this week following its physical release, also on Nov. 8. The theme song for the movie MY (K)NIGHT launched with 58,937 copies — not quite on the level of the group’s personal best of 229,498 first-week copies achieved by its previous release “Summer Riot ~Nettaiya~/Everest” — to come in behind IMP. at No. 3 for sales.
The last of this week’s top 10 boy band debuts is BE:FIRST’s “Glorious,” which bows at No. 7. Released digitally Nov. 6, the track will be featured as the anthem for the 102nd All Japan High School Soccer Tournament. The song was downloaded 20,392 times in its first week to hit the top spot for the metric, and also racked up 3,254,749 weekly streams to come in at No. 29 — the highest among the tracks that debuted this week. The song is off to a good start, coming in at No. 6 for video and No. 9 for radio.
