Ado’s ‘Show’ Returns to No. 1 on Japan Hot 100

As predicted last week, Ado’s “Show” returns to No. 1 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated Nov. 1, logging its fifth week atop the tally after gaining further momentum leading up to Halloween.

Both streaming and downloads for the USJ Halloween event theme increased from the week before, with the former reaching 14,861,306 weekly streams, up approximately 3.2 percent. Downloads are up 17.9 percent at 17,617 units, landing the track at No. 2 for the metric. Points for video views are also up 39 percent (No. 1) and radio jumps 21-7 with an increase of 48 percent. The “Zombie de Dance” show is scheduled to end Sunday (Nov. 5), so it’ll be interesting to see how far “Show” can extend its record atop the Billboard Japan song chart after the spooky festivities come to an end.

“Suggoi FEVER!” by Morning Musume. ’23 bows at No. 4. The track leads the girl group’s first new single in ten months, called “Suggoi FEVER!/Wake-up Call~Mezameru toki~/Neverending Shine,” and is the last one including current leader Mizuki Fukumura.

After hitting No. 1 last week, Sakurazaka46’s “Shoninyokkyu” falls to No. 7, but the track continues to perform well, coming in at No. 5 for sales with 18,196 copies sold and No. 7 for streaming with 6,242,620 weekly streams.
