[In the Spotlight]Meet Chay, breakout jpop artiste with the sweet dimples

14 Mar

I first noticed 24 year old Chay(Nagatani Mai) on UTAGE! (the music program hosted by SMAP’s Nakai and Akb48 Watanabe Mayu) She did not particularly stand out when she sings, and she introduced herself as a singer-songwriter which Japan has plenty of. Her looks were sweet, so i saw her as another Nishino Kana kind of singer. All the UTAGE guests complimented her for being kawaii.

Fast forward to a few months later and she seems to have become a breakout artiste with her new song “Anata ni Koi wo shite mimashita”. This song is the theme OST for drama “Dates-What in the world is love”, a story about a girl who struggles with her robotic emotions. Ranking high on the digital charts, Chay has also earned herself a invite to Music Station! No doubt the drama effect might have helped to push this song to stardom but the 80s music tune is certainly very catchy indeed.



What did you think of the song?

Song Translation below…..

“Anata ni Koi wo shite mimashita” / “I tried to fall in love with you”

I tried to fall in love with you! Feeling like i can do anything
a-ha what’s this power flowing from me  
ah…This must be the power of love!

Why did you let me meet the destined one so early
I am not still not experienced in love
God you must be teasing me

I dressed up in heels today, but i’m turning in circles
I’m definitely gonna sink, i can’t even carry a conversation
I tried to fall in love with you! Right from the day we met
I felt something different
I started to fall in love with you! Feeling like i can do anything
ah…This must be the power of love!

    Dimples? How about that HAIR!!! The 1960s look and cute sound is too much for this old music historian.

    So sweet!
