Hey! Say! JUMP’s Yamada Ryosuke to make his solo debut
It’s been revealed that Hey! Say! JUMP’s Yamada Ryosuke (19) will be making his solo debut.
His debut song, “Mystery Virgin“, has already been picked up as the theme song for Yamada’s starring drama series, ‘Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo: Hong Kong Kowloon Zaiho Satsujin Jiken‘. It’s described as a dance number with a mysterious atmosphere that’s perfect for the drama.
Until now, Yamada has sang and danced to solo songs during the group’s concerts, but this will be the first time it will be released in CD form.
He expressed, “It’s like a dream to be in charge of the theme song for a commemorative program (special drama to commemorate the 60th year since the opening of NTV) by myself. I’m very happy.”
Yamada also stars in the musical ‘Johnny’s World‘ at Tokyo Imperial Theater, which commemorates Johnny Kitagawa’s recognition in the Guinness World Records. He declared, “As Hey! Say! JUMP’s Yamada Ryosuke, I want to continue to devote myself and do my best.”
This song will be performed for the first time on the live broadcast of NTV’s ‘Ongaku no Saiten: Best Artist 2012‘ on November 28. The single will be released on January 9 of next year.
