One of the Top Actresses in Japan, Manami Konishi has started a musical metamorphosis with her own lyrics and original melody. Although Manami is most recognized for her acting and became a household name, she is going to unleash her musical talent by collaboration with Japan’s #1 Rap Star - KREVA.
From March to April 2016, Manami had performed for KREVA’s Hip Hop Musical, Saikou Wa Hitotsu Jyanai (Your Best is More Than One) 2016 SAKURA and she covered one of KREVA’s master pieces, “Tranquilizer”. She later recorded the song and released it on iTunes as a debut single, where it charted No.1 as a Hip Hop/Rap song.
Following up this surprising chart success, Manami recorded 4 track EP titled “I miss you” with KREVA and will release it worldwide on October 7th (presale for iTunes/Apple Music only on Sept 23rd). It opens with a slow jam and the title track, “I miss you” followed by KREVA’s bouncy EDM signature beat with Manami’s visceral rap flow, “This is love”, a light hearted pop tune, “Tsumetaku Shinaide” (No Cold Shoulder, Please..) and closes with an airy intimate love song, “NO”.
With the rap legend KREVA on her side, Manami will be a force to be reckoned with and bring a fresh breeze to her fans all over the world.
“I made these songs with straight forward feeling” says Manami and it shows her unique character that is so pure and innocent, but sometimes mysterious.
