Biography

Jin Akanishi is a Japanese superstar performer, who entertained over 6,000 fans at his American debut concert in Los Angeles this past June. On the "Yellow Gold Tour 3010", Akanishi will perform a variety of songs in English with back-up dancers on a futuristic stage.

Akanishi, a former lead vocalist for the renowned Japanese pop group KAT-TUN, left the group this summer and is now preparing for the US tour along with working on new material. "I'm thrilled to perform again in the U.S., the ultimate stage for entertainers around the world. With new, original material, I'm ready to introduce my fans to a whole new world of Jin Akanishi. We are working hard to produce a great show for audiences to enjoy, including those who came to my last show in Los Angeles. I'm looking forward to seeing my American fans and making new ones very soon," said Akanishi.

As the former lead vocal in the popular J-pop group KAT-TUN, JIN AKANISHI helped establish numerous records. Their 11 CD singles, 4 CD albums, and 7 DVDs all reached #1 in the Japanese trade magazine Oricon (the Japanese equivalent of Billboard magazine), and in 2009, KAT-TUN became the first musician to perform eight consecutive days at Tokyo Dome, the largest and most prestigious arena in Japan.

In 2009, while still officially a member of KAT-TUN, AKANISHI began his activities as a solo artist upon the release of the film BANDAGE, in which he starred. His first solo CD single, also titled BANDAGE, quickly climbed to the #1 spot on Oricon Magazine and was eventually certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of Japan.

Immediately following BANDAGE, AKANISHI delivered 28 solo shows titled "Akanishi Jin Star Live You & Jin", at the historic Nissei Theater throughout February of 2010 in Tokyo. The success of "You & Jin" inspired an overseas performance, leading to "You & Jin U.S.A" in June 2010. AKANISHI became the first solo artist from the renowned Johnny & Associates Agency to perform in the U.S.

After the success of "You & Jin U.S.A", AKANISHI officially announced his pursuit of a solo career. He will continue his activities in Japan, but is also seeking to expand his craft and talents to audiences across the world.

Lyrics

Wonder

Written By: By Akanishi Jin ft. Crystal Kay

Jin:

T-I-M-E to party,

feeling free with my hat brim low

and my hoodie up.

People wall to wall

when that bass hits,

yeah, it just fits

I move cross the floor.

Let the music come in

take control as it hits

your soul it fills you up.

Universal style what

y'all hearing for

miles and we'll let the

bass pound and share

that crystal clear

now bounce... {bounce...}

Crystal Kay:

It's not even Friday

but I'm ready

come to party all night long.

Gonna tell the DJ

what to play 'coz

I wanna hear

my favourite song.

Gonna let my hair down

haters stay down

I do, what I wanna do.

You know you want it,

don't even fight it,

'coz I know you like it,

Just take a bite and

enjoy the ride with me tonight.

Have I seen

you around before?

But if not let's start off

by saying hello.

I really wana dance tonight

Don't waste my time.

Jin & CK:

I wonder... wonder... wonder...

why the world is going under

when we're sitting here tonight,

Forget our differences tonight.

I wonder... wonder... wonder...

will it be.

just you and me.

Jin:

HEY, do you understand the beat done,

changed I say make them girls jump turn it up,

It's a phony world, we live in people,

faking and taken,

what's not theirs from you.

Life is full of ups and downs,

discriminations all around.

Help us change the nations,

and the problems that were facing now.

CK:

It's not about where you come from,

or how much you make babe.

it's all about haven, some fun

I think I just wanna, take a chance,

Just take my hand.

Jin & CK:

I wonder... wonder... wonder...

If we can see past the color,

come together tonight.

I wonder... wonder... wonder...

After all I'm falling for you.

Jin:

You know my name, but are you feeling me,

I'm liken the way you move.

CK:

I love the way you, got me feeling it

Moving to the beat with you

Jin & CK:

I wanna be like this forever,

Trapped in your arms tonight.

I hope it's not the end

'Coz I don't wanna say good bye.

I wonder... wonder...wonder...

why the world is going under,

when were sitting here tonight,

I wonder... wonder... wonder...

will it be.

just you and me.

I wonder... wonder... wonder...

If we can see past the color,

come together tonight.

I wonder... wonder... wonder...

After all its too late,

I'm already falling for you.

You and I You and I You and I
You and I You and I You and I

I got 2, 5 years to tell yall about
25 tears I cried and
set aside for a bitch that lied
Now I sit inside can't believe that i tried
But I'd let it all go just to know
Did you really trust in me or was it just a show
Now the shows that I go get a little bit longer
And the motivation gets a little stronger

So it's on her she dropped that ball
In the summers when i fall
Cuz you made that call
I keep moving on with my mind on the goal
Nothing could a stopped this, my cups not full

Now it shows that you didn't all know
When I had to let it go
So you hear my heart fall
Let us break it down

Easily you understand
Easily I had a plan
Even if you make me fall
Just know I'm gonna take a stand

You and I You and I You and I
You and I You and I You and I

Pray for protection when i step on the stage
Let the lights of this life blast the pain away
And I know there was nothing
that you could ever tell me it's true
I had it all figured out and now I'm running it through
Stay moving dust starts to settle around

Gave up a little life just to gain a little ground
How'd make it this far without your love in my life
Carry me close to your heart
I know it's hard
An nothing can compare when the feeling is there
You got a little something something love-in like
you never had
nothing frontin just to get up and go
I'd do it all for you
and I know you know

The sound that lingered in my ears was made by your tears
That told me that you love me wanna make it last

But we only had what is done is bad
Now I look to the sky just to cry
So forgive and let's live this life that i missed
Let's hit this live say hello with a fist
We wished we knew now we can't stop it
You didn't make it I just can't top it
So I ask
will you bless me please
Expanding my territories
North and south just hear his mouth
The hands get weak and knees give out

You and I You and I You and I
You and I You and I You and I

I got 25 years to tell yall about
25 tears I cried and
set aside for a bitch that lied
Now I sit inside can't believe that i tried
But I'd let it all go just to know
Did you really trust in me or was it just a show
Now the shows that I go get a little bit longer
And the motivation gets a little stronger

Love Juice

Written By: Jin Akanishi

Don't know where you're from
Never seen you around
But that don't mean nothing to me
Just want a taste of that...

Drop that shit life...

She stood there waiting alone
Green eyes her shoulder exposed
Smiling and biting her straw
She gave me one look, I froze

Her sexy inviting eyes
My hands on her hips as we grind
She whispered in an accent unknown

"Just let go, let the music take control babe
Move your body, nothing crazy
So take it slow, there's so many things I want you to know
I ain't leaving you, cuz I'm yours tonight"

I can tell you want me too
And every time I think of you
That luscious juice your lips produce
I can taste that sweet LOVEJUICE

I can tell you want me too
And every time I think of you
That luscious juice your lips produce
I can taste that sweet LOVEJUICE

“Oh”, “Oh”, “More”, “Slow”

Classy like none of these hoes
Pretty little frame under her clothes
Those lips as red as a rose
Vibing to the beat from the Boze

Don't rush the night is still young
Take it to the room and sex things up
I can see you call out my name, saying

“Don't stop, more” I'm trying to see how your lips feel babe
All we need is body language
And now I know, I'm falling for you and I just can't lie
I won't go nowhere cuz I'm your man tonight

I can tell you want me too
And every time I think of you
That luscious juice your lips produce
I can taste that sweet LOVEJUICE

I can tell you want me too
And every time I think of you
That luscious juice your lips produce
I can taste that sweet LOVEJUICE

See, I've been all around the world but I ain't (seen nothingX2)
Like you, don't matter where you're from, it don't (mean nothingX2)
See, I've been all around the world but I ain't (seen nothingX2)
And now I got four minutes to take you back, girl we can (be somethingX2)

I can tell you want me too
And every time I think of you
That luscious juice your lips produce
I can taste that sweet LOVEJUICE

I can tell you want me too
And every time I think of you
That luscious juice your lips produce
I can taste that sweet LOVEJUICE

I can tell you want me too
That luscious juice your lips produce
I can tell you want me too
That luscious juice your lips produce
I can taste that sweet LOVEJUICE

I can taste that sweet LOVEJUICE
