Namie drops a preview of her "Birthday" music video

Namie Amuro has dropped a preview of one of the five music videos she has shot for her 12th studio album _genic. The album is sounding so strong in preview form, with each song showing single potential, that I could have done with videos for every song. But I shalln't be greedy, given that Namie completely did away with her post Feel singles and did the unimaginable by recording an album of all new material. *Ignores of the wails of 'But BeyoncĂ©...'*

"Birthday" is by no means one of the songs from _genic I'm looking forward to, but it's a solid pop song. As has become customary for Namie's songs "Birthday" is sung entirely in Engrish. It may as well have been in Japanese, because I can barely understand what's being sung for the most part, keeping me knee deep in the bane of existence as J-Pop fan who can't understand a damn thing on a song. I love Namie, but the only words I could make out from this were selfie, celebrate, double birthday and what I think was anniversary.


Namie was looking too damn cute in this video. The double birthday she's referring to in this song is probably the news of Ayumi Hamasaki and Kumi Koda's latest albums flopping; which is what is keeping the smile permanently on her face throughout the video.

I'm sure the next music video to surface will have Namie back on her knee high pointy boots, ponytail and off the shoulder top swag. She needs to serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and After eights in the "Stranger", "Golden touch" and "Fashionista" videos.

Namie's social team have been her Facebook and Twitter accounts around the clock to promote this album. In comparison, Ayu's promo for A one was just Google alerts on legacy shit. As for Kumi, I have no idea what her marketing team did for her album.

  3. OMG. Is this really Namie Amuro?! I mean THE Namie Amuro that doesn't dance without knee boots??? I'm shocked. She's wearing high heels *lets it sink in*. This is as shocking as Kashiyuka showing her forhead.

    But Ok. I don't like the song that much, but it'll grow on me, I think. MV looks nice/pretty, Namie looks good.Getting some Nishino Kana/Perfume vibes from the breezy/light MV.

  5. Ever since Tsuki this woman has completely given up on properly lip synching. (I love her even more because of it, though <3 )

    I really do like this, but why do I feel like this is oddly similar to Kumi's Birthday Eve back in '06!? Namie's just snatching wigs lately!!

    That's BoA staple song in Korea. BoA's irrelevant in Japan now. BoA's biggest fanbase has always been her Japanese fans. BoA's career peak was BEST OF SOUL (2005), her first J-pop compilation album and she had huge arena tours all over Japan over capacity. Those were the good old days.
