Namie Amuro to provide theme song for upcoming dorama “Haha ni Naru”

On April 12, the Erika Sawajiri-starring dorama “Haha ni Naru” will begin airing. The story is about a boy who had been abducted for 9 years reuniting with his mother (played by Sawajiri). Namie Amuro has been announced to perform the theme song, “Just You and I”. According to the singer, the song deals with “the selfless love for the significant other, in which the true strength is rooted” and she is glad it resonated with the dorama’s plot well.

This is not the first time the names of Amuro and Sawajiri are stuck together as the former also provided the theme song for First Class 2.

In addition, Amuro has announced two special tour dates for her native Okinawa under the “namie amuro 25th ANNIVERSARY LIVE in OKINAWA” that is scheduled for September 16-17.

      Always happy to hear good news from Namie Amuro. This is a personal record I think, she’s been releasing singles since “_genic”. I’d say I’m hopeful for an actual good song sang in Japanese, but knowing one of the b-side tracks (or the only b-side), “Strike a Pose”, is all in English, it doesn’t really make me that excited about it… Still, and that’s what I’m happy about, she’s been singing more lines in Japanese.

      I don’t get what are her and her team’s plans. She asked fans on a special website about who they wanted her to collaborate with so people were expecting “Checkmate” v2.0 but she released “_genic” instead, right after that she announced a new tour (that she extended the following year) and since then she’s releasing single after single, most of them associated to a drama or movie, with an all-in-English b-side track. Will she release a “regular” album this year, more singles, a compilation, … ? Sometimes I think she is going for a Kana Nishino and promote her music through this dramas and movies, or perhaps she wants to avoid comparisons between her and Utada Hikaru’s sales…
