avex unveils its new recruit: Yuka Kagiyama
Has Lara Croft become Japanese? In any case, that is the image avex trax is trying to give to its new singer for the release of her debut single..official site. Announced as a rock singer, she will make her debut on June 24th with her debut single Love Player.
She is barely out of avex's auditions, but avex is already placing big hopes in her and uses a commercial strategy that only Max Matsuura could make up. Indeed, beside the fact that avex reveals the singer's mensurations on her home page, four editions of Love Player will be out. Not mentioning a big tie-in, since the song is used as the ending song for the drama LOVE GAME, which started airing on April 23rd.
Now we have to wait and see if the Japanese welcome her. Will Yuka Kagiyama be another commercial failure, like many recent avex singers? We will have the answer at the end of June...
