13.June.2018 | MUSIC

Kenshi Yonezu‘s song Lemon has reached yet another milestone, this time with its music video reaching 100 million views on YouTube.

This marks the third music video from the singer-songwriter to break 100 million views, the first being Aine Kuraine and the second Uchiage Hanabi featuring DAOKO. His hit track Loser is almost there too.


Lemon was released on March 14 and served as the main theme song to the Japanese TBS Friday drama Unnatural. One after another listeners are drawn into the world of Lemon as a requiem for the feeling of loss as a result of death.


Even now after Unnatural has finished airing the song has enjoyed a long success. As of April 2018 it has acquired over 1 million downloads.

Lemon is first million seller to clock in on Oricon’s digital rankings and remains the most downloaded song across digital music platforms, setting it in stone as another classic from Kenshi Yonezu.


The music video hit YouTube on June 27 and hit 1 million views in just 13 hours. The momentum hasn’t slowed once, having reached 1 million views after 105 days on June 11


The video is getting wider reach overseas by the day having peaked at number one in three categories in the YouTube charts: Artist, Music Video and Song. Lemon stayed in the number one spot in the music rankings for two weeks, further planting the seed for the track to grow in popularity outside Japan.


Downloads and views are also on the rise for some of Kenshi Yonezu‘s other tracks including LoserPeace Design and Haiiro to Ao. Thanks to the success of Lemon, the singer’s past works are sure to gain more recognition too.
