Kenshi Yonezu’s “Pale Blue” rises to No. 1 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100, dated June 14 to 20, after racking up the most total points for a solo artist during this chart year so far.
The CD sold 161,252 copies — about 3,000 copies short of NMB48’s “Shidareyanagi,” which debuted at No. 3 on the tally (163,977 copies), but enough to boost the track 3-1 on the latest tally, combined with downloads (No. 1 for the third week, 28,334 units), radio airplay (No. 1 for the second week), and look-ups (No. 1), which counts the number of times a CD is ripped to a computer.
