Namie Amuro is Japan’s top pop selling female performer and once again, super producer Tetsuya Komuro has shown that he can take another artist and give them the Midas Touch and bring them to #1. To be fair, Namie Amuro was a star in her own right as the lead vocalist of the female pop group, the SUPER MONKEYS, but since Amuro and Komuro have collaborated, the two have literally dominated the charts.
Their last single “Chase the Chance” sold over a million copies and indication is that her third single “Don’t Wanna Cry” is expected to do the same and if anything, I think she’s a literally a shoe-in for the Grand Prix Award for the 38th Annual Japan Record Awards.
“Chase the Chance” is written, composed and arranged by TK and features an upbeat pop track in which Namie Amuro just shines. It’s catchy, addicting and to tell you the truth, I’ve probably listened to this single several dozen times today. It’s that good! The song is currently being used for Daido’s Mistio commercial.
The coupling track “Present” (written by Takahiro Maeda) is an interesting song in which Namie is talking on the phone to someone and she starts singing. If anything, I dig the chorus of the song and it’s just a fun track to listen to.
Another wonderful collaboration featuring Namie Amuro and Tetsuya Komuro, Namie Amuro’s “Don’t Wanna Cry” is a must-buy!
