  • 1SAGAIN & JU BORA: ENDLESS WINTER
    1SAGAIN & JU BORA: ENDLESS WINTER Release Date:  12/12 Label:  Unknown I couldn't find a Wiki page in English about 1sAgain but a Luminosity page about Ju Bora states that she frequently collaborates with him. So, I'm assuming 1sAgain is the one who's doing the rapping, since that voice sounds male, and Ju Bora is […]

  • LEO IEIRI: SILLY
    LEO IEIRI: SILLY Release Date:  11/19/14 Label:  Victor Entertainment You have to admire Leo Ieiri. If for nothing else then for the fact that she writes all of her own songs. Also, she manages to put out new music as regularly as the bulk of J-Pop artists who have other people writing songs for them. […]
