Up-and-coming singer-songwriter chay covers Yamashita Tatsuro song
On September 16, singer-songwriter and university student chay (21), who will make her CD debut and release her original song “Hajimete no Kimochi” on October 24 (early distribution on October 19), will cover Yamashita Tatsuro’s (49) hit song “Koukiatsu Girl” (1983) as a coupling song.
chay was lucky enough to have her song “together” used as the theme song for BS Fuji’s “Nadeshiko League Relay” back in April before her planned debut, but “Koukiatsu Girl” has also been selected as the ending theme for TBS’ special drama “Reset~Hontou no Shiawase no Mitsukekata~” (Sunday 9 PM) that will be broadcast on September 30.
Holding her demo tape with the song, chay, who met with Yamashita, expressed her thanks with, “I heard Tatsuro-san’s song through my father, and I am thankful to be able to cover such a legendary musician’s song.” She expressed her aspirations, saying, “My goal is to stand on the same stage next to Tatsuro-san as a major artist.”
