The theme of the highly acclaimed drama series quietly totaled 20,781,069 streams this week — up 14.7 percent from the previous week — and stayed at No. 1 for streaming for the third week in a row. The track is the first to log more than 20 million weekly streams this year, and now also holds the record for the second-biggest week of all time in terms of streaming, behind BTS’s “Butter,” which scored 29,935,364 streams on the chart released on June 2 , 2021.
“Subtitle” also performed well in other metrics – No. 2 for video views, No. 6 for downloads, No. 6 for radio airplay — increasing its total points from last week to remain atop the Japan Hot 100.
Kenshi Yonezu‘s “KICK BACK” also holds at No. 2 this week. The official accompanying music video Chainsaw man opener fell during the chart week. Yonezu’s on-court collaborator, King Gnus Daiki Tsuneta, made a cameo on the mind-blowing visuals, which amassed 4,113,998 views to enter at No. 1 for the metric. The song enters at No. 2 for streaming, No. 4 for downloads, No. 3 for Twitter mentions and No. 8 for radio.
Hinatazaka46‘Tsuki to Hoshi ga Odoru Midnight’ rises 62-3 on the Japan Hot 100. The girl group’s eighth single sold 459,613 copies in its first week – a slight decrease from its previous single “Bokunanka” (478,142 copies) – to rule sales and charting this week, but lacked brilliance in the other measurements: No. 19 for downloads, No. 8 for Twitter and No. 46 for radio.
Travis Japans “JUST DANCE!” debuts at No. 4. The group attracted attention for being the first Johnny’s boy band to debut worldwide on streaming platforms, and the track was downloaded 66,078 times in the three days counting this chart week (No. 1). It also ranked #1 for Twitter, #36 for video and #38 for radio. How the song fares with seven full days to count is something to watch for on next week’s chart.
