21 Comments

Singer, Kumi Koda, 28 will release her 50th single titled "4 TIMES," on July 10. The CD, featuring four songs, will be released also on DVD. Both feature photos of Koda in sexy outfits on the jackets.

The theme is "Sexy and Fashionable." The four songs express the progress of one day, with the daytime "poppin love cocktail," the early evening "In the air," midnight "VIP" and first light "kosokoso."

The CD costs 1,260 yen and the DVD 2,100 yen.

Well, if every CD only has 4 songs, and some are compilations "best of", this is explainable.

I wonder how many have all 50 CD's?

For commercial and economic goals, most of new released CDs have two songs or four songs. Usually two songs with singer's voice, and two songs only with instrument sounds, other CDs have two or three styles of music genres to meet different expectations of listeners - J-pop, Jazz and Ballad. For Kumi Koda, her physical outlook is different to Ayumi Hamayashi - one wih more feminine and the other with rebel or liberal. In 2006, she released 13 single CDs, one compilation album, one studio album, and tour live concert. "Sexy and fashionable" may hit male fans more than female fans. But some female fans still like female singers for different perspectives - fashion style and sexy outlook.

is the CD titled 4 times cuz this is the fourth time she's released the same crap?

What's wrong with a 2 song or 4 song CD? Does that exclude her from being a successful artist? She IS successful, regardless of what all the naysayers believe. And yes, she DOES have wonderful legs. And hair. And fingernails. And arms. And dance moves. And... and... and...

I had to look more closely... it looked like she was sucking on a pair of panties there. Where. Glad to see it's... what is it? A stuffed, blue dinosaur?

Well, they'll have a new Pachinko machine for her soon.

I think she is hot. If she was mute though, it would be better.

You all have no clue what's happening. This ISN'T her 50th CD, it's her 50th SINGLE. 50 over a course of 11 years. It's called '4 Times' because there are 4 songs. She does this theme almost ever summer - 4 Hot Wave & 3 Splash.

The ONLY reason I click on any link related to the uber-inane world of J-Pop is that there might be a sexy photo to see.

Today is another disappointment.

DEFINITELY! She has a few catchy tunes, but on the whole not really worth the hype. Still, she CAN be quite sexy.

Of course. The Japanese music industry isn't designed like that. Quantity and the overall Yen.

Still that's a lot. I know in Japan that's a very normal thing, but anywhere else "50" hit singles over the span of 11 years? Marketing and quantity are what makes the music industry thrive in Japan. I can understand "15 or even 20" hits in in 10 years, but "50" is kinda high.

Of course she looks fantastic! My beef is like with most J-artists, there is a whole lot of beauty out there, but not a whole lot of talent.

I don't know about that one. Hmmm....choosing the lesser of the two of the least talented...

I fixed the headline:

Kumi Koda Desperate for Attention

Another talentless artist...at least she's not dressed like some hooker this time. Still, not my cup of tea. I'll keep listening to beautiful ANGELA AKI till the end of time~ =)

Kumi Koda goes sexy for CD, DVD jackets

Once again style trumps substance in J-pop. "Going sexy" is the standard formula for these "singers". This is hardly news. The covers of most of these CD's look like they could be from graveure magazines.

She is the furthest thing from "sexy" that could be.
