Kumi Koda's first album since getting married reaches No. 1 spot on Oricon chart

15 Comments

Kumi Koda's first album since she announced her marriage and pregnancy, "Appreciation," is in the No. 1 spot on the Oricon chart for Feb 6.

Koda appears on the cover of "JAPONESQUE,” wearing an exotic oiran (courtesan) costume. The 17 songs include the hits “Don’t stop love” and “Love Me Back,” as well as the opening theme song for Fuji TV’s drama “Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de.”

Koda, 29, married KENJI03, 27, the guitarist from the rock band BACK-ON last December and then announced that she was four months pregnant.

KENJI03 collaborates on the song "Poppin, love cocktail feat. TEEDA."

Koda released a statement saying, "I'm really honored that my 10th anniversary album has reached the No. 1 spot."

No journalist asking the probing questions like what she appreciates most?

Is she pregnant on the album cover or did they use an old picture?

If she is married is her name really Kumi Koda? Maybe her husband changed his name.

Doesn't matter really what the name is on the marriage license she is free to use any "stage-name" that she prefers.

That's a courtesan costume? Wow - and I though bikini's were a relatively modern invention.
