Billboard Japan's Year-End Charts 2016 - Top 20 from Hot 100

Billboard Japan released the results of its year-end charts for 2016 so I will be posting the lists from some of the categories which relate more to the Japanese music scene. The results were tabulated based on the period from 23 November 2015 to 27 November 2016.

First up is the Hot 100 list whereby points are given to the single or album CD based on areas such as sales, search data, Twitter mentions, the number of times which the PV was played online and the number of downloads. Only the top 3's points were mentioned so I have indicated as such in brackets behind the names of the CDs.

As the list is very long, I will only mention the top 20 here. If you are keen to check the full list, please refer to the source:
