    • Kana Nishino

      I still haven’t read the lyrics, and I only listened to the song once or twice, but Nishino Kana’s “Dear Bride” sounds boring.
      It’s kind of bad how songs, specially those by female solo singers (be it idols, artists, whatever), are relying more and more on commercials, dramas and movies to stay relevant. Even Utada Hikaru’s “Michi” is only on the charts because of that (well, I’m not that sure, as much as I know the song is being used for something).
      These charts shouldn’t be called digital charts, more like “social” charts.

      • But this has been a thing for ages.
