Even if you’re not really into Japenese pop music, you may remember Kyary Pamyu Pamyu‘s first track “Pon Pon Pon” from her debut album “Pamyu Pamyu Revolution.” It was a viral hit around the globe, with her colorful performance, the crazy characters and a refrain that keeps stuck in your head, like, forever. It even was featured in an episode of The Simpsons.
Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, with tracks like “Candy Candy”, “Invader Invader”, and “Fashion Monster”, is one of Japan‘s biggest pop stars. She’s a testimonial for adidas Originals, has a huge fanbase on Twitter and she’s a big fan of Crayon Shin-Chan, which, what a coinsident, is also one of my favorite animes of all time. “Ass dance is both science and art!”
Current Coke face Kiriko Takemura’s latest track is called “Sai & Co” and it’s the celebration of her fifth anniversary in show business, where she won the MTV Europe Music Award, the Vogue Japan Women of the Year Award, and the Space Shower Music Video Award. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is an integral part of Japanese pop music – and I really hope it stays that way.
