Creepy Nuts’ ‘Bling-Bang-Bang-Born’ Holds at No. 1, Number_i’s ‘GOAT’ Soars to No. 2 on Japan Hot 100

Creepy Nuts’ “Bling-Bang-Bang-Born” extends its reign atop the Billboard Japan Hot 100 to seven weeks on the chart dated March 13.

Boosted by news of the MASHLE season 2 opener’s global hit, the track gained significant exposure during the tallying week, including an appearance on the long-running live TV program Music Station on March 8 and a performance on The First Take YouTube channel released the same day. The hip-hop banger holds at No. 2 for downloads (22,288 units, up about 39%) and No. 1 for streaming (21,313,095 streams, up 0.2%), while coming in at No. 2 for karaoke, No. 15 for radio airplay, and No. 34 for video views. Overall points are up by about 6.2% from the previous week.

Returning to the top 10 after seven weeks, Number_i’s “GOAT” shoots 32-2 following its physical release on March 6. The CD sold 481,475 copies in its first week, hitting No. 1 for the metric, and the ambitious rap anthem also ruled downloads (24,601 units) and radio. In other metrics, the former No. 1 hit comes in at No. 4 for video with 1,439,615 views and No. 27 for streaming with 3,389,427 streams. While it missed the top spot on the Japan Hot 100 by a narrow margin, it racked up more than twice as many points as the track at No. 3.

Debuting at No. 3 is Sexy Zone’s 26th single “puzzle,” the four-man boy band’s final release under its current name. The theme song for a new drama series starring member Kento Nakajima launched with 296,056 CDs, about 45% more than its predecessor, “Jinsei Yuugi.” The track hits No. 2 for sales, No. 20 for radio and No. 83 for video.

Other first-time entries in the top 10 this week are =LOVE’s 16th single “Norotte Norotte” at No. 6, selling 233,478 copies to come in at No. 3 for sales, and SUPER★DRAGON’s major label debut called “New Rise” following at No. 7, selling 77,221 copies to come in at No. 4 for the metric.

The Billboard Japan Hot 100 combines physical and digital sales, audio streams, radio airplay, video views and karaoke data.
