Jin Akanishi’s US debut single No.1 on iTunes Dance chart

Jin Akanishi’s first single to be released in the US has made it to the top of the dance charts on iTunes, reports Asahi Shimbun and music news website natalie.

“TEST DRIVE featuring JASON DERULO” was released on November 8. On the same day, Akanishi took part in a fan meet and greet in Los Angeles with 300 fans. The singer signed autographs for 50 of those fans first in line, showed the crowd the finished music video to his song, and answered questions from 10 fans including children and housewives.

“I’d never done a signing event so in the beginning, I didn’t know what to do, but it turned out to be really fun. I was very happy to be able to thank my fans in person for all of their support on the day that I got the No.1 spot on the iTunes dance song chart,” he said.

Summary of the Jin Akanishi’s fan Q&A:

Q: What do you miss about Japan?

A: Friends, family, and…the food.

Q: What’s your favourite restaurant in Los Angeles?

A: Gonpachi. Does everyone know it? It’s a Japanese restaurant. That’s my favourite.

Q: What do you do on your day off?

A: Make songs. And, sleep.

Q: How do you de-stress?

A: Sing “TEST DRIVE” at karaoke.

Q: What’s your ideal woman?

A: Full of energy, sexy, has common sense and a sense of humour.

Q: What part did you have the most fun with while you were shooting your music video?

A: It was a 19-hour shoot, but it was really fun. I got to work with a lot of hot girls.

Q: Are there any plans for a US tour?

A: I’m in the middle of recording right now, but when that’s done I’ll go on tour.

aww, awesomeness! i can't wait.
Ueda looks so strange without hair. and somehow Kame does too, but that's because i'm used to seeing him as Bem now and he looks good with his silver/gray hair. LOL.

i hope we get to see a preview of the other PV too.

OH GOD UEDA WITHOUT HAIR IS SO WRONG. X_X

Having not followed KAT-TUN since like BTR, this is the first time I've seen Koki with hair post-debut! I missed it!

Akanishi Jin announces new single + fan event at Yokohama Arena

Earlier it was announced that Akanishi Jin will be releasing a new single “Seasons” on December 28th, and holding a fan event at Yokohama Arena on January 7th, 2012.

The upcoming single “Seasons” will be released in two different versions; the regular edition, which includes a special 16-page photo booklet, and a limited edition, which includes a DVD featuring the title track’s PV as well as its making-of video. There will also be four different cover jackets for the limited edition to match the single’s four seasons theme.

Akanishi commented about the title track, “It’s a love song, but it is not only for men and women, or lovers. It’s a song of love toward everything, including family or friends who you cherish.”

The tickets for the fan event will be sold preferentially to people who purchase both the limited and regular editions of his upcoming mini-album “TEST DRIVE featuring JASON DERULO“ (set for release on December 7th).

During the fan event, there will be a trial listening of songs for his upcoming U.S. album, currently scheduled to be released in early 2012. The event will also include a public interview where Akanishi will answers fans’ questions, a live performance, and a surprise present directly from Akanishi. Finally, there are plans for a live simultaneous broadcast the fan event in Los Angeles.

We will report more details of this event when they are revealed.

LOL. i thought of Ayu's song too. i think i'm going to like Jin's Japanese material overall. i really like "Eternal" and his Japanese stuff has more substance than his American/English stuff. I don't mind the dance stuff, but Jin really needs to work more on his interview skills and he needs to be way more confident speaking with an expanded vocab, imo.

YesAsia's description of Seasons

Akanishi Jin may be working hard to make it in the United States music industry, but he's also staying close to home. Just after releasing his first English-language single Test Drive, Jin is ending his 2011 in Japan with his second Japanese solo single Seasons. Written by Jin himself, the ballad is his touching tribute to all the people he loves. The single includes the studio version of The Fifth Season (which Jin performed at his concert tour) as B-side track.

http://www.yesasia.com/global/season...0-en/info.html

Eh he did performed The Fifth Season in his concert tour ? as in for Yellow Gold or the USA concert gigs ?

a new album in early 2012 would be amazing! and "CHAIN" would be such a cool album title.

hopefully an official announcement will come soon! and can't wait for next week's MS performance.
