Recently, on an EXILE Mobile post, EXILE leader and LDH president, HIRO, confirmed that Crystal Kay signed to his agency in October. While not officially confirmed in news or their website, many have taken this as an official confirmation. This is not the first time that Crystal Kay has collaborated with artists from the agency. In 2013, she sang on the Dance Earth Party single Inochi no Rhythm. Also J Soul Brother’s ELLY backdanced for the singer pre-debut, during her 10 year anniversary tour.
Crystal Kay is a J-pop female soloist who made her debuted back in 1999 under Sony but switched over to Universal Music Japan in 2011. It should be noted that one’s agency is seperate from one’s label. So while LDH will manage her activities in Japan, UMJ will distribute her music.

Today I held a brief meeting about each artist’s songs and then I attended Crystal Kay’s welcome party!
I think many people have known that.
Crystal Kay joined LDH since October. She is a new member of LDH now (^^)
She is so talented and I am really happy that she can join us here in LDH.
With these carious “chemical reactions”, I started to be really excited now at the thought of a more glorious LDH.
She is not only gifted with all the talents but she also is a great person.
Crystal Kay has a very awesome personality!!
I think she is really the artist who is perfectly suitable for LDH!
So I am pleasant that I can share dreams with her in the future!
She has already created many famous songs, but I still hope that we can keep working hard together to aim at a better stage!
Hope all the fans can enjoy and get excited together! (^^)
Crystal Kay fans and LDH fans alike are excited to see the new addition to the agency. Popular Twitter accounts that distribute LDH news have also announced it for Japanese fans.
