2017 went off with a ‘Red Velvet’ bang when the girl group released their 1st the Mini EP ‘Rookie’ on SM ent.
The EP contains six new songs featuring ‘Little Little’ written by none of other than Music Jammer Gifty and boy wonder Sigala. Music Jam publishes this on behalf of Gifty.
Next up! Koda Kumi released two albums on March 8th, titled W Face -inside- and W Face -outside. Music Jam publishing is very happy to reveal we have a cut which was a single from the album! Both album’s after release shot straight to the Number One and the Number Two spot of the Oricon Japanese chart making Koda the first woman in 47 years to hold both top spots at the same time. We are proud to say W Face Outside containing, ‘Ultra Violet’ was the album holding the Number One spot!
The cut, ‘Ultra Violet’ is written by the very talented Val Del Prete produced by Sean Alexander. The song was pre released in Japan before the album with a sneaky peek video for the single. Music Jam proudly publishes Val Del Prete for this release.
Our next cut was released July 12th with Boyfriend the Japanese boyband signed to Kiss Entertainment managed by Avex. It’s written again by Gifty riding high off the back of her Red Velvet cut! The song is co written by close associate Klein Sin hailing from Korea and UK producer/writer Shaun Barrett. ‘Summer’ is the lead song from their new mini album also by the same title with confirmation of a video to follow!
