Namie Amuro - Fashionista

The name Namie Amuro has been on my radar for well over a decade, and for good reason because she has been one of the biggest Japanese pop stars since the mid-nineties. For some reason I was under the impression that she performed mainly ballads, but then I listened to the previews of her new album and was floored by how awesome (and uptempo!) it is. Better than that, Amuro has released a piece of work that sounds like the perfect updated version of a classic Madonna-mixed-with-Kylie 90's dance album. It really does sound of an era, and it just happens to be my era. It's an incredibly refreshing, strong collection of songs. I could pick almost any of them to feature today, but I think I want to share Fashionista, which was a single a few months ago. It's catchy from the get-go... a real club track with an ever changing, dramatic melody and production. Sometimes it sounds kind of like something Shinee would have released in 2012-2013. But the real musical touchstones are still Madonna and Kylie. If you like this song, you'll love the album!
