Amuro Namie (安室奈美恵) is a Japanese "Hip-Pop" (Hip-Hop-Pop) artist from Okinawa. She debuted in an eurobeat group called the SUPER MONKEYS comprised of her and her classmates from the Okinawa Actors' School in 1992 with the single "Koi no Cute Beat / Mister U.S.A.". Amuro became the leader of the group, and found success after their cover of "TRY ME ~Watashi wo Shinjite~", which peaked at #8. In 1996, Amuro switched to avex trax and debuted with the single "Body Feels EXIT", with her first avex album selling over 3.3 million copies. Her biggest single, the ballad "CAN YOU CELEBRATE?", was the top single of 1997. After marriage and personal tragedy, Amuro continued to adopt a more R&B / Hip-Hop based style of music. Amuro has approximately sold 35,000,000 copies in Japan.

Me, too. Hopefully I'll have some more info to post soon. I'll make the OP look better after I get some other threads set up.

And hello. ^^ Were you a part of Hallyu8 before? I don't recognise the name (but I mostly stayed in the J-section, so that might be why. xD)

Does anyone know when Contrail is coming out? Or if it came out already? I'm so behind in Namie news.

No release date as of yet, most likely due to the fact that there won't be another single before the album. It's been released as a ringtone on Recochoku, though.

I'm hoping Namie will have more album details in Sweet magazine, which comes out in a week.

Yes, I remember you are the biggest Namie fan on hallyu8 and also the op of the thread...

 

I don't know if you've seen me around but I was Heart-Island and never posted on the Namie thread before even though she's my jpop queen :( but I will be more active in the j-section this time :)

 

btw do you still have the link of the Contrail rip?

Oh thank you. Does that mean it still might be released as a single then, just after the album is out? I'm not familiar with how Namie released songs. I heard there was going to be an English version too. I hope someone puts out an English translation since I'm curious to know what the song is about.

If there's more of her old R&B/dance sound would you like it? TT^TT

No. Japanese artists release their singles before an album. It's rare that they'll be released after the fact. They'll still promote songs once an album is out, but it's promoted as part of the album, not a seperate single.

;_;

TK is now one of Ayumi's workslaves, and the material he's producing for her has not been met with much praise...do we want poor old sad old Namie to go the way of the Hamasaki?

 

I hope she'll slap Damage on that album, I mean no physical release for Damage, no physical release for Contrail, we want those songs on a CD release.

 

We already have quite some material for the album,

 

  1. Damage
  2. Big Boys Cry
  3. Beautiful
  4. Contrail
  5. Can U Feel This Love?

There are already more songs for this album than there were songs for Past < Future, so that album is not far away (maybe that's Namie's new MO, album with many single releases (PLAY, Uncontrolled) followed by an album with only 1 single (P<F, 2013 album))

He left those behind in jail. Now he just works for whoever will take him, and gracious Ayu has shown mercy and let him produce songs for 2 albums

I'd rather him just perform with her on an old song at this point. I don't think Namie should go backwards after all the work she's put in.

Welcome back, by the way. ^_^

Phew. Done for now. Once we get some sort of promo image/font for the album, I want to do something cool with the OP. For now, here's some sales numbers from the forum downtime:

 

Contrail (Rankings on Chaku Uta:

4/28 - #1
4/29 - #1
4/30 - #3

 

Weekly Ranking (4/24~4/30) - #2

April Monthly Ranking - #13

5/1 - #3

5/2 - #4
5/3 - #4

 

(^ AKB went on the chart with a new song, so she dropped a bit )

 

Physical Rankings for last week:

 

DVD: #7 with 2,480 sold
Overall: 203,169 

 

Blu-ray dropped out of the top 10 again, so I don't have that. And I don't have my combined total since I can't access the old thread, but it's probably nearing 270,000 with Blu-ray added in.

 

Big Boys Cry/Beautiful: 271 sold

Overall: 31,543
