Yonezu's [kick back] overcomes the points in J01's Mary poppins (Week 42/52) Japan billboard top

Japan billboards report said ""KICK BACK" was a fierce battle driven by download and streaming, and "SuperCali" was driven by single points. "

The new music from the TV animation "Chainsaw Man" opening theme is played by Kenshin Yonezu, consider one of the main singers for the Japanese Pop culture. The music name KICK BACK gain the leader position at the billboard Hot 100 by accumulating

points as the leader of the downloads and views.

Here are a bit of the lyrics :

"Bye-bye with this for stubborn oil stains

Who is the voice calling out in my head

I want that I want this I'm singing

Want to be happy

I want to enjoy my life

I want to hold it in my hand

in your chest

fill me with happiness

Let's go to rest in peace

The hell I once saw is also a good place"

Kenshin Yonezu - Kick Back - My Personal Japanese music review:

I personally dont like the music. It's to fast beat for me ! But if you enjoy it let me know on comments!

The reason I dont like it, its because I can not really dance with it . I can not feel anything for the music.

Jumping to number 2 on the Billboard we have J01 with [SuperCali] as in "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" ... yeah you read that right,Mary Poppins's "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"!!!

They basically made a concept around Mary Poppins, However I found it to be a little bit more Spooky.

J01 were very close to achieve the leader position by 30 points. Due to the conquest of 4 crowns as the leader in Singles, Lookup , Twitter and Radio.

J01 are an eleven-member Japanese boy group formed by the top contestants of the programme Produce 101 Japan, owned by LAPONE ENTERTAINMENT.

Their first single, 'PROTOSTAR', was released on March 4th, 2020.

The MTV VMA Japan awarded J01 the "star on the rise" award in 2020.

Here is a bit of the Lyrics:


Forget the mirage of the past

Woo A desolate desert

Even if it swirls, it's a sandstorm

(Danm) Even if you can't see it, it's a milestone

(Yeah yeah) I know I can find the way

Up and down (hey) prowling sun (hey)

Ore wo always (woo) why?"

My personal review to J01 ' supercali' :

Of course, this is a more modern perspective of the Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! For the concept, I was expecting a little more narrative in the music video !

Also they lost their smile, in spite of more hair colors!
