Kenshi Yonezu is First Japanese Artist to Hit 5M YouTube Subscribers

J-pop singer-songwriter Kenshi Yonezu recently added another accomplishment to his ever-growing list of accolades: hitting 5 million subscribers on YouTube.

No other Japanese artist has as many subscribers on their official channel. His music videos have been viewed over 2.8 billion times in all, with “Lemon” leading the pack with 580 million views, another No. 1 record for a Japanese artist.

Including “Lemon,” the hitmaker currently has 12 videos surpassing 100 million views: his collaborative single with DAOKO, “Uchiage Hanabi,” follows with 360 million views; and his 2014 single “Eine Kleine” is in third place with 250 million views.

Yonezu’s new single, “Kanden,” is now available for download, and his highly anticipated new album, STRAY SHEEP, is due Aug. 5.
