These past few weeks have been a bit rough for Ayumi “AYU” Hamasaki fans. The state of her 2020-2021 CDL concert was temporarily in limbo due to new restrictions from the government regarding COVID-19, but the concert ultimately had to be cancelled due to one of the staff members testing positive for the virus. Luckily for her fans, Ayu had some surprises to cheer them up for the holiday season and new year.
At her CDL concert she was supposed to debut a brand new song called “Pray for you“. Instead, she has uploaded the entire instrumental of the song on her official Instagram account. The instrumental video features a summary of her live performances this year along with BTS footage. Check it out below:
A release date for “Pray for you” has not been revealed yet.
The next very exciting surprise came on her YouTube account. For a limited amount of time every single one of her Countdown Live concerts will be available for streaming in full! Checkout the full playlist with all 17 concerts by clicking this link.
