An explosion of top-level J-pop collaborations
Hiroshi Nishida / Yomiuri Shimbun Staff Writer

In the world of J-pop, joint performances seem to be all the rage. Grabbing attention are everything from musicians of different genres enjoying a "battle of styles" to the "international exchange" of domestic and foreign musicians collaborating--not to mention the variety of the content produced. It's also become completely normal for artists of different record companies to collaborate, even though this was considered difficult in the past.

So what is the background to this current boom in cooperation?

"To be able to do the joint performance with Glay was fantastic." If Kyosuke Himuro can say this, Glay's vocalist Teru responds in kind: "I was so happy to be called 'brother' by Himuro-san."

On Aug. 5-6 at Ajinomoto Stadium, the singing giant of Japan's rock world and the popular band put on a combined show. After the artists finished their respective performances, they stood onstage together at the end and gave a rendition of their joint single "Answer," driving the crowd of 50,000 into a crazed frenzy of excitement.

Two years previously Glay's guitarist Takuro and Himuro had spoken together on the radio and this provided the starting point of contact between the band and Himuro. When Glay's activities were tied up in contractual problems, it was Himuro who gave words of advice in their moment of difficulty. From that connection a joint CD and joint performances proceeded without a hitch.

Last year in July, Glay also teamed up with R&B group Exile to release a single, "Scream," which went on to be a huge hit, selling more than 500,000 copies.

As if sparked off by the explosive success of these unusual meetings of artists from different genres, Crystal Kay and Chemistry, Gaku MC and Kazutoshi Sakurai, Katte ni Shiyagare and Ego-Wrappin' were just some of the various joint offerings that subsequently emerged one after another.

When it comes to artists from different record companies performing together, in the past the issue of which company would release the recording and other problems often caused a bottleneck in progress. However, in the case of Rip Slyme, who are on Warner, and Victor's Quruli, the approach of releasing two singles on the same day was adopted. "Ravi" from Warner and "Juice" from Victor came out on July 5. The jacket design of the two singles was coordinated and the connection between them emphasized in their marketing.

As for joint performances beyond national borders, Tomoyasu Hotei and American Brian Setzer released a recording in August as did Pe'z and England's Nate James last month.

Meanwhile, on Akiko Yano's March release Hajimete no Yano Akiko, her joint performances with a host of big-name singers such as Noriyuki Makihara and Yosui Inoue marked a whole new development.

Hotei is also planning a December release with an array of joint performances.

While we are on the subject of album sales and singles sales, I have been researching on the topic through various discussions and will recount what I read. Japan's singles' sales is driven a lot by idol business, TV tie ins, CM music tie ins. It sells phenomenal numbers in the past but with the increase of legal downloads of mp3, even singles sales are affected.

The volume that is moved are from purchases from die-hard fans who buy for the purpose of collecting. So Kat-Tun comes with 7 editions, and other groups come in with 2 or 3 editions of the same title and it all adds up to the dominance of JE artist in the singles list.

There are the purchasers who are undecided and if given the option, they would buy an album instead of a single.

There is also a rental business of singles which affects the retail sales. Accordingly, Japan allows the rental of singles after the first few weeks and that's why after the first few weeks, sales decline sharply.

Outside of JE, those who survive in the market are good musicians. B'z and Mr. Children are two groups which do not offer different editions for one single and their sales are truly solid over the years.

Here is some trivia.

Million Seller SINGLES
1 - B'z (15 overall / 1 Double Million Seller)
2 - Mr. Children (10 / 2)
3 - Glay (6)

Million Seller Albums
1 - B'z (20)
2 - Mr. Children (10)
2 - Dreams Come True (10)
4 - Yumi Matsutoya (9)
4 - Zard (9)

There is an Oricon Ranking of Artists Total Sales for 2006 which includes the sales of Singles, Albums, and DVDs. (I don't have the complete listing of the top 50. It's in Oricon Style Magazine of December or January issue)

1. Koda Kumi 12.7 billion yen
2. Kobukuro 9.5 billion yen
3. Ken Hirai 8.6 billion yen
4. SMAP 6.9 billion yen
5. Ayumi Hamasaki 6.8 million yen
6. Kat-Tun 6.6 billion yen
7. B'z 6.3 billion yen
8. Ai Otsuka 4.3 billion yen
9. Remioromen 4.0 billion yen
10. Mika Nakashima 3.9 billion yen

SMAP was in 19th position last year and this year climbed back to 4th position.

Koichi Domoto is in no. 27 position and the aggregate for him alone is 2,148,000,000 yen.

The following figures are expressed in 10,000 copies

764.8 is equal to 7,648,000 copies.

So,

95 SMAP VEST sold 1,767,000 copies
183 KinKi Single Selection 1,243,000 copies
248 Kinki Kids A Album 1,031,000 copies

As you could see, most of the albums were sold in the 1990's when downloading is not around. Those that hit the mark in this millenium so far are truly solid artists.

Please do not repost this information outside of this forum. It took me a while to edit all this information.

This is the year end ranking of sales of DVD in Japan 2006 including foreign movies and all types of work. Thanks to ladyusagi from the SMAP forum for helping me translate all of the names since I don't know katakana. If anyone knows the rest, please help.


Sorry, I'm late on this response.
The kanji at the end for #4, #14, and #18 mean "special edition"

2006 J-pop? It's downloaded on your phone
Steve McClure / Special to The Daily Yomiuri

The old Who song "Goin' Mobile" could have been the theme song for the Japanese music biz in 2006, as more and more music fans used their mobile phones to download, share and listen to music.

For example, in the July-September quarter, mobile downloads rose 20 percent in volume over the corresponding period of 2005 to 86.2 million units and 36 percent in value to 12.4 billion yen according to the Recording Industry Association of Japan. That contrasts with just 5.7 million PC-based downloads, worth a total of 1.2 billion yen, in the same period

In other words, 90 percent of digital music downloads in Japan are by mobile phone.

Another revealing industry stat was provided by mobile operator KDDI, which as of May had sold more than 50 million songs via its "EZ" mobile-based Internet interface.

One J-pop performer who benefited from Japan's mobile mania was female vocalist Ayaka, one of the Warner Music Japan artists featured in that label's "WAMO Pack" service, a "mobile music bundle," comprising audio, video, graphic and textual content in a single, downloadable file.

Although at the time of writing, Oricon magazine, which collates Japan's most authoritative charts, had not yet released its year-end chart [subsequently announced, see box to left--ed.], on Dec. 12, PC-based music-download service Mora released its ranking of the year's top 100 downloads. Topping the list was "Mikazuki (New Moon)" by Ayaka, whose debut single, "I Believe," was No. 4 on Mora's download chart.

While Ayaka was probably the most successful new face on the J-pop scene this year, Bonnie Pink (who like Ayaka is signed to Warner Music Japan) finally seemed to hit her stride 10 years after making her debut, as her singles "Love Is Bubble" and "Perfect Sky" and a greatest-hits set all racked up strong sales.

Capping Pink's successful year was being chosen--for the first time--to appear on NHK's Kohaku Utagassen (Red and White Song Show) New Year's Eve extravaganza. That show gets more and more kitschy and surreal every year, as image-tarnished NHK becomes increasingly desperate to win back viewers.

Another female J-popper in the news this year was Ringo Shina, who after three years as a member (albeit the star attraction) of rock band Tokyo Jihen announced that she will once again become a solo artist. Shina remains one of J-pop's most interesting artists, and whether she's in a band or on her own, her music is always challenging and defiantly original.

Those are not words that automatically come to mind when contemplating the continuing--and some would say inexplicable--success of the male idol acts churned out by entertainment-biz powerhouse Johnny's Jimusho. Successful acts with a Johnny's connection in 2006 notably included six-man group KAT-TUN and of course the ubiquitous SMAP

Taking the boy band concept one step further was a group called Acqua-EP, whose members are male "hosts" working at host club Acqua's Tokyo and Osaka branches. The group released its debut single, "Misogi," on Sept. 27 on the indie Pygmy label, reaching No. 1 on Oricon's daily singles chart.

Japanese anime's growing international popularity helped several J-pop acts make inroads overseas in 2006, notably six-man rock group High and Mighty Color, who hail from Okinawa. Their song "Pride" was used in the anime series Gundam Seed Destiny, and another tune, "Ichirin no Hana," was featured in the series Bleach. Both series are popular with U.S. anime fans, which led to High and Mighty Color's U.S. debut performance in front of an audience of 2,000 people at the Shiokazecon anime convention in Houston on April 28.

The anime-music connection remains strong in Japan too, of course. In May, the Sony label group held the Sony Anime Fest in Tokyo, which featured live performances by music acts involved with Sony anime titles such as T.M. Revolution, Rie Fu and Tommy Heavenly 6.

Another Sony act to benefit from the anime connection was female vocalist Nami Tamaki, who in 2002 made her debut at age 14 by recording the theme song for the TV animation show Kidosenshi Gundam Seed. This year saw Tamaki release a best-of album at the tender age of 18.

One of Japan's biggest stars, female singer Kumi Koda, made what turned out to a very smart move this year by teaming up with male group Exile on the single "Won't Be Long," one of the year's best-selling tracks.

In industry news, one of the year's biggest developments was the October launch of Napster Japan, the country's first subscription-based music-download service. Despite a flashy TV ad campaign, it's still uncertain whether Japanese music fans will go for the subscription business model, especially since Napster Japan has relatively little domestic music available at present.

And in the first such case in Japan, the Kyoto District Court on Dec. 13 found Isamu Kaneko, developer of the popular "Winny" file-sharing program, guilty of assisting copyright violation and fined him 1.5 million yen. That was bad news for advocates of peer-to-peer file-sharing networks, but music to the ears of the music industry and other rights holders.
