^ There comes ai no uta

yesterday Kumi was recording at the studio, and also this user on twitter reminded us we haven't get this song yet. I guess it's safe to assume there's still more to come this year.

Tokyo Music Festival always has the 100 strong songs, so I'm hoping for another medley like 2018 and 2019. Maybe Ai no Uta & Lucky Star.

EDIT

It seems that the government in Japan will relax some of the restrictions on holding events from 19th on, so events can have around 50% attendance. Kumi's concert was filled with 30% capacity, but in the article is stated that the tour will stay with this amount of attendance restriction. Since Tokyo's dates are not available yet, I guess they are waiting to see if things get better so they can have more people, but I don't expect the production to change.

That's unexpected, but awesome!
And they even stream all 4 performances on those two dates!
Guess all the streams did well, so they continue to sell them.
Well, with only 4000 attendance of the full arena capacity they originally wanted to use, this makes sense.

Kuu also shot something already again yesterday.
Maybe just a performance, maybe something more.
Her hair is gray again here, just like for My Name Is... album, the XXKK PV and the tour promo.

It would be nice to record all the performances but I'm not doing that, the price is around the same of two months of rent. lol Only if it had any substancial changes, but I won't expect that.

Amex Japan is giving away the long white jacket that Kuu wore at last month's a-nation online 2020 (which she signed at the back) as 1 of the many lucky draw items provided if you sign up for their credit card plan

I was watching the MY NAME IS... DVD and the tracklist is actually pretty good. Watching all together made me have some thoughts:

Spoiler:
- Basically all performances were highlights of the concerts they came from, from being ones that she's playing instruments or has some eye catching factor.

- On and On still holds as one of her best ballads performance. I just love the whole thing with the chandelier, the big floating chiffon, it's all so gorgeous.

- You can notice the difference in her vocals from 2015/2016 on. I believe the BSC and W FACE 60 performances each year caused some damage to her vocal chords or maybe it's because she still hasn't rest properly, who knows. Also she has been pushing a lot of songs with very high notes: OUTTA MY HEAD, Dance in The Rain, Pin Drop. It's nice that she tries new things, but if it affects the rest of the concert because her vocal chords are tired, not sure if it is the best decision. We saw how tired she sounded for the second performance of MNI... Tour, hands is quite hard to go through there.

Whoever made the walk special edition probably agree with this, because BSC is the last line of the song and for W FACE, DNA and reLIVE is just the instrumental.

This vocal situation reminds me of Namie, and how much her voice changed from Play to BEST FICTION Tour, and for Finally it's like a totally different person singing.



- The blue dress from Dejavu Tour cute section is sooooo gorgeous. Dejavu Tour for sure is one of my favorites visual-wise.

- I like that she still embraces her sexuality in performances and it's not shy about it. SHAKE IT and Physical thing being there is a plus.

- That Ai no Uta performance is the best one, vocally is very effortless, just like it should, and the water effect is great. Wish she could do something like this again.

then maybe MY NAME IS... it's an album that represents her with songs that may seem random but at least when I saw the list, I thought the album talked about her and somehow had songs that were the best of the best.

We still dunno why she chose those songs right?

We usually get interviews with background infos when she releases the DVD.

@kaled kalil:
It's funny, I still remember you hating the ballad section of The Artist, disliking her vocals there. Now you already said a 2nd time you like it.
Did that change?

-----------------

Kuu is shooting today.
Her manager shared it on her account.

Yeah, I started liking The Artist as a whole concert a lot more with time. The vocals are still not great, in that case for the ballad section it was more of how slow she was singing the songs, like she was one beat behind the track, but I got used to. The visuals for that section are really good: you had that cool projection, On and On as a whole was gorgeous, and it had costume changes and all.

I feel like I set in my mind that the anniversary concerts are going to be an specific way and I end up being disappointed by my own expectations lol. Even for FANTASIA I had problems with, the day it happened, now I like a lot more. Watch me loving MNI... Tour in 5 years, it will probably happen. haha

Ai wo Tomenaide



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFvN-8gJG0s

You are not alone



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5H9qSPZ0Dng

Ai wo Tomenaide covers are still some of my favourite of Kuu's after all these years

Ai wo Tomenaide is a great mature ballad.
PV is quite sexy too!

I love 愛を止めないで.
One of my favourite ballads and PVs!
Hope she's performing it again one day.

@kaled:
I see, can happen.
You know, I loved the ballad part from the start.
The Artist actually is the only (Kuu) concert I prefer the ballad section over the upbeat.

I'm a big fan of Ai wo tomenaide as well, I hope she'll perform it on the ballad section of MY NAME IS in any of the future dates.

But overall I don't think I've enjoyed her ballad sections lately, it feels like it's all the same thing. WALK OF MY LIFE had a interesting take with things going on in the stage and some mid-tempos in the middle to spice it up a bit. Dejavu tour as well. THE ARTIST was just ok to me. But nothing will ever be as boring as FANTASIA's ballad section lol

I got so emotional the first time I watched walk ~to the future~ haha. The dog scene is soooo precious, I can't watch that and not remember the pictures of Kumi and Misono playing with the dog when they were kids.



I also love Ai wo Tomenaide. I like how mature the song and PV are. In comparison to the over dramatic Suki de, Suki de, Suki de, it really felt like a step up in the mature side. That swing bench scene from Suki de, always gets me, the way that she goes to the floor crying lol.

Both singles are very good tho.

あなただげが, one of my other favourite ballads!

Kuu is on Tokyo Speakeasy with Shinji Saito, a Japanese comedian (the guy in the back of the photo).
He talked about how his wife (talent Saori Seito) is a big fan of Kuu and a part of her FC and that he became a fan as well.
