“ねぇ” [VIDEO]

One of my all-time favorite Japanese groups, Dreams Come True – aka DCT – has a new song out on iTunes in Japan today. The single, “ねぇ” (pronounced “Neh”) is the latest in their legendary career – which spans over 30 years. DCT was first signed to Sony Records in Japan in 1988, and have released more than a dozen albums (including two in English), with worldwide sales of over 50 million.

The main reason I got into DCT was because of lead singer Miwa Yoshida‘s incredible voice. If you’ve heard much Japanese pop music, you are familiar with the usual grating, high-pitch voices – but with Miwa, there is a rich, soulful tone that incorporates R&B, Jazz, and Funk influences. Watch the video for their latest single below.
