"Koda-mama goes wild on her first CD in two years." That's how the Japanese entertainment media are describing the hot look of Kumi Koda, 30, on the cover of her first single in two years.
On the cover of "Summer Trip," Koda -- who had a baby less than a year ago -- appears in a seductive bikini, with blond hair and a shapely bronzed body. The photo shoot was done at Malibu in California.
Koda told reporters the themes for the photos on the CD are "heat," "freedom" and "energy."
"I chose my fashion and the ocean view because I wanted to express the idea of summer directly," Koda said, adding that she also accelerated her diet so as to emphasize her curves.
"Summer Trip" will be released on July 31.© Japan Today
