YOASOBI “Running at Night” achieved Japan’s first billion! Cumulative streaming views of Billboard JAPAN exceed 1 billion times – with comments from the person himself –
YOASOBI’s “Yoru ni Kakeru” has surpassed 1 billion cumulative streaming plays on the Billboard JAPAN chart, making it Japan’s first billion hit.
[Image:×153.jpg] “Running at Night” is YOASOBI’s debut song released on December 15, 2019, and was based on the novel “Temptation of Thanatos” by Maya Hoshino. In 2020, after becoming a viral hit on TikTok and SNS, it topped Billboard JAPAN’s annual chart “HOT 100 of the Year 2020″. It became the first song to reach number 1 in a year without a single CD release.
On the streaming song chart, it debuted at number 91 on the chart released on March 18, 2020, and has topped the chart 15 times so far. The cumulative number of views exceeded 100 million in the 18th week on the chart, and in this week, the 183rd week on the chart, it exceeded 1 billion views for the first time in history.
A total of 14 YOASOBI songs have surpassed the 100 million play mark so far, and this record is tied with Official Hige Dandism for the most by any artist. Also, among the members’ solo songs, Ayase’s “Night Stroke Menou” and ikura (under the name Rira Ikuta) “Sparkle” have each exceeded 100 million views.
◎YOASOBI comment excerpt
YOASOBI’s “Yoru ni Kakeru” has surpassed 1 billion cumulative streaming views! I’m really happy. Thank you so much for listening! I would be happy if you would continue to support YOASOBI not only for “Yoru ni Hakaru” but also for other songs as well!
To commemorate the 1 billion views of “Running at Night”, YOASOBI is thinking of various projects, so please look forward to them! ◎YOASOBI comment video
