Album art + tracklisting: Mademoiselle Yulia - Whatever Harajuku
I would like to thank Mademoiselle Yulia for taking the time to listen to the pleas of the few who had be pleading for a follow up to her gravely underrated debut album Mademoworld. How the world let that album pass them by, I do not know.
The lead single from this album will be "Harajuku wander" and it sounds like a Euro dance mess. It's certainly no "Gimme gimme". But the video is bold enough, bright enough and features enough pink, coloured wigs and mention of Harajuku that people will compare it to Nicki Minaj and Kyary Pussy Pamyu - which will in turn have Mademoiselle Yulia in people's mouth. GIT DAT PROMO. Plus it features it girl Kiko Mizuhara - who is taking so many modelling gigs in Japan right now, that you would think she is the only model over there.
Yulia knew exactly what time it by putting Hirari Ikeda in this video. You can't drop a song about Harajuku, shoot that shit in Harajuku and not feature that girl. It's like a crime. She is Harajuku fashion personified. If you don't know about Hirari Ikeda, Google her. Those of you who shop religiously at Uniqlo may recognize her, as she was one of the faces of their recent UT campaign.
Please take the time to check out Mademoiselle Yulia's debut if you haven't already. It's a good 'un.
