New J-pop and K-pop Releases

Sorry the post is late this week; I planned to post yesterday but wasn't feeling well. :)

Today I thought I'd share some new J-pop and K-pop songs/videos.

First up one of my favourite Japanese singers Namie Amuro has a new single called Hero. It's for the Olympics, it's the theme song for the Japanese broadcast. Seems weird that it's 4 years since the last Olympics in London!

This is a nice song. :) The video is the short version (just over 2 minutes).

Namie also has another video for the song Show Me What You've Got (from the Hero single). Unfortunately they won't show it on her YouTube channel; they sometimes make them unavailable for certain countries. They do have it on DailyMotion though, so if you can't view it in your country check it out here:

And then Korean American rapper/singer Jay Park has a new single with Korean rapper Ugly Duck called Ain't No Party Like an AOMG Party. (AOMG is their record label). It's on Jay's EP $cene $tealers (Scene Stealers) which is out now.

He also has a new song called I Don't Disappoint which is from his upcoming Everything You Wanted EP. This is just an audio and is my favourite out of the two songs.

Both songs are explicit. :)

Do you like the new songs?

P.S. I'm planning to do a post on C-pop (Chinese pop) because I haven't posted much about that so far. So look out for that. :)

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)

The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.
