Yellow Dancer was certified platinum by the RIAJ for physical shipments, and became one of the few albums to receive a gold certification for digital downloads.

His fifth album, Pop Virus, was released on December 17, 2018.[2] It topped the Oricon Album charts four weeks in a row and was certified double platinum by the RIAJ one month after its release. The commercial success of the album, within a couple of months, earned him a Best Album prize at the 33rd Japan Gold Disc Awards, alongside a Best Song prize for the digital success of the single, and asadora theme song, "Idea".[3][4] He also became the first artist to win a total of four trophies at the Space Shower Music Awards of 2019.[5] On August 30, 2019, all of music by him are available on streaming services.[6]

In 2012, he debuted as a voice actor, voicing Buddha in the original video animation (OVA) adaptation of Hikaru Nakamura's manga Saint Young Men, and also provided a theme song called "Gag" for its 2013 theatrical version, where he reprised his role.[7] In 2013, he played the lead character in Masahide Ichii's Blindly in Love (箱入り息子の恋, Hakoiri Musuko no Koi) alongside Kaho, and starred in the Sion Sono film Why Don't You Play in Hell?. In 2016, Hoshino starred in TBS's The Full-Time Wife Escapist. With Yui Aragaki as his co-star, he portrayed a salaryman named Hiramasa Tsuzaki. The drama achieved steadily rising ratings, with a real-time viewership peak rating of 20.8% on the final episode, and an overall rating of 14.5%.[8][9] Hoshino's performance earned him several Best Supporting Actor awards.[10][11][12] He also provided the theme song for the drama, titled "Koi".

In 2017, Hoshino lent his voice to the main character of award-winning animated film Night Is Short, Walk On Girl. He also became the voice of the Father in Mamoru Hosoda's Mirai, which was released into theaters in Japan on July 20, 2018.[13]
