12 Mar

Island is really promoting the upcoming album more and more. Check check check it out XD

She looks weird in that photo XD and im really not digging the album font at all, a lil upset they havent changed it yet but its not about the album cover its about the MUSIC! =D. Well all there is to really say is Good Luck to Utada and her new English album. XD

Come Back To Me

1 Mar

Well Utada’s PV for Come Back To Me has finally been released, and lets say “the PV is good!!!” Comparing it to the previous releases, this videos surpasses them by far. The PV for Come Back To Me is lets just say “beautiful” in a cinematography matter XD, and its a breath of fresh air since her Heart Station, Beautiful World and Kiss & Cry PV releases.

Music Fight Part 2

5 Feb

Well well it seems things are changing around with the release of the 2 US albums that are being released from BoA and Utada. As i mentioned before their release dates were set to March 4th, but recently the record label in charge of BoA has changed the release dates to March 17th. Bold move? It could be if they want the album to hit a #1 ranking when its up against someone who has a history of being in the #1 spot.

Utada’s 3rd English album has finally been given a name also. The 3rd english release will be called “This Is The One” and fans are happy with the title but it seems it made Utada a little upset =O. It seems a member from  IDJ did something they were not supposed too =O.

From her Official Site :

February 4, 2009 – Wednesday

THIS IS UTADA

Ok, so, I can now announce that the title of my new album is

“This Is The One”

I am a little upset right now because I think a staff member of IDJ posted the previous blog entry. It’s not me, but it’s written AS IF it is written by me. I’m going to call the dude in charge and make sure this doesn’t happen again.

9:52 PM”

HEHEHE she is referring to this post :

“New Album Title

I want to be the first to tell you that the name of my new album is “This Is The One” and I can’t wait for all of you to hear it.

Thank you for all the comments!”

Music Fight! DING! DING! DING!

13 Jan

March 4th the Music Brawl will begin XD

LAWL this is interesting both Utada and BoA are releasing their English albums on the SAME DAY in Japan. Now who is going to get better sales? XD Utada’s Exodus album was a major hit in Japan but BoA is pretty big herself and with her best album coming out on the same day also is going to be a fight on the Oricon Charts.

Maybe i should… hmmm… yes this will do…

VS

Which team will you be on?

“Come Back To Me”

7 Jan

So Utada’s Island Def Jam official site has finally been updated from since the “You Make Me Want To Be A Man” single release. The new layout is nothing big, but there is something on the site that Utada fans may want to check out. Her song “Come Back To Me” is now streaming on the website, and so far I like what I hear.

“Come Back To Me” is pretty nice ^^ its a mainstream R’n’B song that you would hear in the U.S but its Utada stylish I think o.o. Ok, the main priority of this is to try and grasp the American audience, and with type of material could it? I think is has a very high chance. After Exodus being a very dark album, who knows exactly how this album will turn out. I mean like we did have the “Easy Breezy” track in Exodus and then a slap with Dark songs, so now we just have to wait and see what exactly happens. Now as for audience grabber for the U.S I think this track has potential to do good but alas we get the “you never know till it happens” type of situation.

Other than that gibber jabber, If you want to hear the song check out her official site from Island Def Jam, or download it 320kbps. ( Thanks goes to WINRY from hikaru.sc)

Come Back To Me – website rip.

“Come Back To Me”

17 Dec

Seems Utada is ready to start releasing her stuff again in the US. Around Feb 9th (so the site claims) We will hear Utada – Come Back To Me on the radio waves. Will it be Pop? R&B? Ballad? who knows. Now the question is will this attempt again in America become a succes or a flop like her previous album Exodus? (awesome album but wasnt promoted or wasnt mainstream America) They always say 3rd times the charm, but will it work for Utada :3

Utada Album Confirmed

4 Sep

『Prisoner Of Love』 Single

24 May

Im assicted to this song QQ the Quiet version is just sooo nice and relaxing. Prisoner of Love single is so nice, the quiet version is just spectacular, ill just let you listen to it with you own ears and let u hear how great this single actually came to be. Even though its only 2 songs, the new quite version totally worth it to take a listen too. One thing i think they should have done actually was added all the different prisoner of love melodies they use in last friends into the single but thats the music business for ya XD blah i’m just rambling on XD go listen to it naow!!! D: XD

『東京日和』/『Prisoner Of Love』 PV’s

19 May

YAY THE PVs ARE OUT!!!!!, what a way to end a weekend with both PV’s coming out ^^

東京日和 (Tokyo Biyori) is a happy song and I like it, some don’t but thats to bad for them HAHAHAHAHAHAHA haters XD XD JK but yes the song is out and its good ^^ The video features Van walking around the streets of Tokyo just being a regular person listening to an Ipod it would seem ^^ XD its pretty simple, almost like Namie’s Baby Don’t Cry PV


DL – 東京日和 (Tokyo Biyori) (request for upload)

DL – 東京日和 (Tokyo Biyori) (request for upload)

Prisoner of Love PV is quite different, it features Utada in a studio working on the Prisoner of Love song in the different steps it takes to make a song. It seems after Keep Tryin’/Flavor of Life her PVs seem to lack a lot of creativity (well just my point on view on it) Heart Station PV was ok but it was just boring in a way, and now this with her in a big studio room, their just bland.

DL – Prisoner of Love PV (request for upload)

Overall both PV’s are pretty simple, but i have to say Van’s PV > Utada’s. One cause its not just in one room and two cause Zaflon is in the PV LAWL XD (inside joke)

Thanks to those at Jpopsuki for upload of the PV’s
