Itano Tomomi tries rapping and autotune for “CRUSH”

25 Jun

Itano Tomomi is coming back with a new style and new look! This time, her song is a electronic dance track featuring her newfound rapping skills, which i have to say suits her so much better than the ballads.  As if to hide the flaws in her vocals, the entire song has been treated with autotune this time. At least the live performances will sound better since she won’t need to sing live anymore.

“CRUSH” is one of the new songs that will be featured in her debut album, to be released Aug 1st.

    I don’t like too much this album. I whish her the best but currently solo singers in Japan aren’t that popular, and the ones who are have a really good voice so …… Also I think this kind of music is not popular either( one of the reason UZA didn’t do so well ) but I guess she is trying to do something similar to Dear J.

      I can also see that her dance style is not going work in the Japanese industry, so luckily she’s still experimenting with rapping/hiphop etc.

      The only female artiste who can sell a dance track is Namie Amuro or Koda Kumi..and even for them their ballads sell better.

      I think Tomochin has no choice but to stick to this genre since her vocals are too weak.
