JO1 Soars to No. 1 as Haruma Miura’s Posthumous Single Rises to No. 2 on Japan Hot 100

JO1’s “OH-EH-OH” shoots to No. 1 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated Aug. 24 to 30, selling 313,504 copies in its first week. The eleven-man boy band led physical sales and Twitter mentions, while coming in at No. 2 for look-ups.

Haruma Miura’s posthumous single “Night Diver” rose to No. 2 with 215,895 copies sold, faring generally well in  metrics including sales (No. 2), look-ups (No. 3), Twitter (No. 5), downloads (No. 6), and video views (No. 12), but not enough to overturn the difference of approximately 100,000 copies in sales.

Another high-level race took place in streaming this week, with BTS’s Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit “Dynamite” coming out on top with 10,146,925 weekly streams, holding the long-running J-pop hit “Yoru ni kakeru” (9,574,720 streams) by YOASOBI at bay. BTS rises 7-3 on the Japan Hot 100 this week, again overtaking the Japanese male-female duo.

The Billboard Japan Hot 100 combines physical and digital sales, radio airplay, Twitter mentions, YouTube and GYAO! video views, Gracenote look-ups, audio streams from Amazon Music Unlimited, Apple Music, AWA, Google Play Music, KKBOX, LINE MUSIC, Rakuten Music, RecMusic provided by Gfk Japan, dHits, Uta Pass and Spotify, plus karaoke data from Daiichikosho and XING.
