Creepy Nuts’ ‘Bling-Bang-Bang-Born’ Scores 17th Week Atop Japan Hot 100 as NCT DREAM Debuts at No. 2

Creepy Nuts’ “Bling-Bang-Bang-Born” rises again to No. 1 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100, climbing 4-1 on the chart released June 12 to extend its record to 17 weeks atop the tally.

The return of the hip-hop duo’s long-running hit to the top spot follows Billboard Japan’s 2024 mid-year report, where the MASHLE Season 2 opener was crowned the top song on 13 different lists, a first for any song in the history of the Japan charts. Perhaps due to the impact of this news, points for radio airplay increased 1.8 times from the previous week, which helped keep the decrease in point total for the track at a minimum. “BBBB” returns to No. 1 after three weeks.

NCT DREAM’s “Moonlight” debuts at No. 2. The title track off the K-pop boy band’s second single launched with 253,965 copies to hit No. 2 for sales, while also coming in at No. 4 for radio.

Mrs. GREEN APPLE’s “Lilac” follows at No. 3. The song climbs 5-3 with increases in downloads, streaming, karaoke, and radio points. Mrs. GREEN APPLE ruled the mid-year Japan Artist 100 chart and currently still has 12 tracks charting on the Japan Hot 100 this week. The three-man band dropped a new song called “Columbus” digitally on Wednesday (June 12), which will likely join the list of the popular trio’s hits.

Omoinotake’s “IKUOKUKONEN” also rises 9-4 this week. The piano trio released “Tsubomi” on June 12, the track being featured as the ending theme of the anime series My Hero Academia Season 7, and has been promoting it through various channels including Instagram Live.

Bowing at No. 5 on the Japan Hot 100 is Strawberry Prince’s “Chikai no hanataba wo ~With You~.” The track hit No. 1 for sales with 502,921 CDs sold but didn’t score any additional points in the other metrics of the chart’s measurement.

Sakurazaka46’s “Jigoujitoku” debuts at No. 10. The popular girl group’s ninth single dropped digitally on June 5 and came in at No. 14 in downloads, No. 5 for streaming, and No. 9 for video views. 

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