Yasutaka Nakata and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu to Collaborate with Charli XCX

A few weeks ago, it was reported that Yasutaka Nakata and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu are releasing a split single on January 18. It was also reported that this single will feature a mystery foreign artist. Well, the title of the single as well as the name of the foreign artist have been revealed!

The single is titled “Crazy Crazy / Harajuku Iya Hoi” and the foreign artist was revealed to be Charli XCX. “Crazy Crazy” is Nakata’s song and features both Kyary and Charli XCX. “Harajuku Iya Hoi” is a Kyary solo track.

“Crazy Crazy” was written by Charli XCX and composed by Nakata. The song is entirely in English, a first for Kyary, and will be released in 110 countries digitally on January 18. With this collaboration, Kyary has now completed all five of the fifth anniversary goals she set earlier this year. Of the song, Kyary said that she was happy about it even though the English lyrics were a challenge. Charli XCX also expressed excitement over the song.

Check out more information on the single, including an audio teaser, below!

      lol to think i thought Nakata couldn’t get any lower and more annoying with his desperate attention seeking moves…
      Also, why is it whenever a western artist collaborates with a japanese artist the title/lyrics of the song have to be so dumb and about ‘harajuku’ ‘kawaii’ or some “crazy Japan” silly cliché like that? I’ve seen many american artists collaborate with french artists and they never felt the need to sing about ‘croissant’ ‘baguette’ or ‘pain au chocolat’ so why do they feel the need to do that with japanese ones every.fucking.time?? smh
