  • The rise of the AI and animation Celebrities and singers

    Have you ever wondered who you are really cheering for? There is no doubt in my mind there are more music groups and "artists" ,in animation format , everyday. If you aren't aware of such then you must be thinking " What the hell is she talking about?". Most people might remember Miku, the vocaloid . Hatsune Miku, also called Miku Hatsune, and officially code-named CV01, is a Vocaloid software voicebank developed by Crypton Future Media and its official anthropomorphic mascot character, a 16-year-old girl with long, turquoise twintails. The popularity was so huge that the Search engines and all similar systems believed it to be spam blocking all searches. This type of Celebrity is more famous in Japan and South Korea. The 1st Virtual Idol was in Japan , her name was Kyoko Date , meanwhile in South Korea, Cyber Singer Adam made its debut in 1997. Ten years before Miku. If you are aware of the music in the E-sports world, you might know K/DA and their 2018 League of legends world championship performance, where the avatars and the actual voice singers perform together. K/DA is a virtual Pop girl group consisting of four themed versions of League of Legends characters Ahri, Akali, Evelynn and Kai'Sa. Maintaining a group belonging to Kpop vibe. The conception of K/DA was based on Riot's expressed desire to create more musical content, with the characters chosen based on K-pop archetypes. However does it help the Kpop unhealthy archetypes become standardized? In Japan, more and more virtual artists or animated singers reach the Hot100 Japan Billboard. The problem and benefit are the singer can remain anonymous until it reaches a more stable fantasy but it also means we don't know the singer and artist. If you invested into creating the fictional character, should you at least create a plot or identity like making a statement? We don't know anything about the people or the characters that create. In 2022, there were a few to reach the top , let me show you just a few … The most greatest example is Ado. Official Twitter: Official Youtube : We can't help but be excited by the sudden burst of popularity singer "Ado" is enjoying! Their identity is still shrouded in mystery, but their incredible abilities as a musician and performer can't be denied. Plus, their participation in songs produced by Vocaloid P have caught the attention of many people- for example, "Osmanthus fragrans" has already reached over 10 million views on YouTube! Who knows what this hidden star will achieve next? Stay tuned to find out! Wonderlands x Showtime (ワンダーランズ×ショウタイム) Wonderlands x Showtime, often abbreviated to WxS, is a musical show unit formed by five part-time actors in the Phoenix Wonderland stage and under the Oster Project. This is virtual personas and performances just like the famous miku, the vocaloid. The concept surrounds the same project. Official links Eve Eve (also stylized as E ve, born May 23, 1995) is a singer-songwriter and Vocaloid producer. He got his start in the Music Industry by doing covers on Nico Nico Douga. He eventually signed to Toy's Factory in 2019, moving away from Harapeco Records. He was also a guest in "School of Lock!" by Tokyo FM. His music has been featured in the anime Dororo (Dark Night / 闇夜 ), Jujutsu Kaisen (kaikaikitan / 廻廻奇譚) and Josee, the Tiger and the Fish (Ao No Waltz / 蒼のワルツ) .

  • Yonezu's [kick back] overcomes the points in J01's Mary poppins (Week 42/52) Japan billboard top

    Japan billboards report said ""KICK BACK" was a fierce battle driven by download and streaming, and "SuperCali" was driven by single points. " The new music from the TV animation "Chainsaw Man" opening theme is played by Kenshin Yonezu, consider one of the main singers for the Japanese Pop culture. The music name KICK BACK gain the leader position at the billboard Hot 100 by accumulating points as the leader of the downloads and views. Here are a bit of the lyrics : "Bye-bye with this for stubborn oil stains Who is the voice calling out in my head I want that I want this I'm singing Want to be happy I want to enjoy my life I want to hold it in my hand in your chest fill me with happiness Let's go to rest in peace The hell I once saw is also a good place" For more information about Kenshin Yonezu, check out the post " Lemon (Kenshi Yonezu)- The longest remaining song on Billboard Japan Hot100 charts" Kenshin Yonezu - Kick Back - My Personal Japanese music review: I personally dont like the music. It's to fast beat for me ! But if you enjoy it let me know on comments! The reason I dont like it, its because I can not really dance with it . I can not feel anything for the music. Jumping to number 2 on the Billboard we have J01 with [SuperCali] as in "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" ... yeah you read that right,Mary Poppins's "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"!!! They basically made a concept around Mary Poppins, However I found it to be a little bit more Spooky. J01 were very close to achieve the leader position by 30 points. Due to the conquest of 4 crowns as the leader in Singles, Lookup , Twitter and Radio. J01 are an eleven-member Japanese boy group formed by the top contestants of the programme Produce 101 Japan, owned by LAPONE ENTERTAINMENT. Their first single, 'PROTOSTAR', was released on March 4th, 2020. The MTV VMA Japan awarded J01 the "star on the rise" award in 2020. JO1 OFFICIAL Social: [website ]​ [Twitter] [Instagram] Here is a bit of the Lyrics: "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Forget the mirage of the past Woo A desolate desert Even if it swirls, it's a sandstorm (Danm) Even if you can't see it, it's a milestone (Yeah yeah) I know I can find the way Up and down (hey) prowling sun (hey) Ore wo always (woo) why?" My personal review to J01 ' supercali' : Of course, this is a more modern perspective of the Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! For the concept, I was expecting a little more narrative in the music video ! Also they lost their smile, in spite of more hair colors!
