Like I said before I enjoy Namie's hip-pop sound and I think Yamapi is the perfect Johnny's artist to fit in the genre. Even though Akanishi Jin could have worked as his sound is not that far off of Yamapi's Super Good, Super Bad era material I think the two have distinctive enough styles I do not think it would work out quite as well if it was Jin and not Yamapi in this collaboration. But I will say that when it comes to them both I do tend to find myself liking their collaborations more than their usual solo material.
|Guess who Yamapi is cosplaying.|
|The Queen of Hip-pop.|
|The power of the dark crystal.|
|"Remember this is the head guys should think with or you will end up like Jin."|
|Doing the doggy paddle.|
|Yamapi has blue balls... who knew?|
|Sitting in a chair like a boss.|
|If there's a window where's the door?|
|Showing off the swagger.|
|Ready to be schooled?|
|The queen's throne is a seat for one.|
|Can't say Yamapi is not watching where he's putting his hand.|
|Yamapi looking good and knowing it.|
|Yamapi, the muscle and Namie, the flamingo.|
|Unusual that Namie is not looking as fab as usual here.|
Yamapi is far from my favorite Johnny's but every once in a while I find myself liking something that he is doing which is where Unusual falls. And I think with his movement to a musical style that falls probably best in the hip-pop category this is a perfect PV, song and collaboration to help cement that new image that he was making for himself at the time.
Plus he gets to be a Johnny's first with being the first Johnny's to be featured in an non-Johnny's PV. And we all know how much Johnny's loves their firsts in anything.
