Yamada's Solo CD Debut  
From Yahoo! News: http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20121117-00000039-spnannex-ent

Yamada Ryosuke (19) from popular group Hey!Say!JUMP will be having his solo CD debut. The song "Mystery Virgin" will be released on 9 January next year, and will be used as the theme song for NTV's special drama, "Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo - Hong Kong Kowloon Treasure Murder Case", in which he will be starring in.

He debuted in April 2007 as a temporary unit "Hey!Say!7" with the single "Hey!Say!". Until now, he has released 16 singles as a member of both Hey!Say!JUMP and the trio NYC. He has also performed many solo songs during concerts.

This song will be a dance track with an exquisite melody, which will fit the thrilling advancement of the drama. As this popular drama will be a special memorial drama to celebrate NTV's 60th anniversary and this role has been played by his seniors in Johnny's, Doumoto Tsuyoshi, Matsumoto Jun, and Kamenashi Kazuya, Yamada commented that "It feels like a dream to be able to sing the theme song of this memorable programme alone. As Yamada Ryosuke of JUMP, [he] will continue to improve himself."

This song will first be performed on NTV's Best Artist, which will be aired live at 7pm JST on 28 November 2012.

I'm happy for his solo debut. I'm sure he has always wanted a solo debut. I mean, I guess most of us would have seen this coming someday, considering his popularity in JUMP.

But then again, I can't help but think of all the past examples we have seen in Johnny's regarding solo debuts of the most popular member in the group. I can only hope that he remains close to JUMP and not stray too far away. I love JUMP as JUMP.

it's stated there:
"As Yamada Ryosuke of JUMP, [he] will continue to improve himself"

let's believe that for now he'll remain in JUMP :)

Yeah, all we can do is to hope and believe that he'll remain.

But that's what all the others said too. They said that they will work hard as a group, as well as in their solo careers. But sometimes in the end things just don't happen the way fans want.

I'm sure you can tell where I'm drawing my examples from if you look at my profile picture.

Me too. I mean Yamada is really my ichiban but even though I might have wanted him to have a chance this big to prove himself more as an artist, I'd still prefer JUMP. There is where he really belongs to. He can venture in more projects and activities alone but I hope he won't follow the tracks of Yamapi who went out of his group and came up as a solo artist. I'm actually looking forward for more HSJ releases. And since it is Yamada alone who'll sing the theme song that'll be used for his newest drama then I must wait a little longer for JUMP's next project. I'm expecting for their comeback around early next year.

I will support his debut...(although it sucks for the other members cause now he gets a bunch load more attention :/)
but I hope he doesn't leave JUMP.

He just can't do that to his group members and his fans who support them as a whole :/
it'll break my heart to see another member leave.

It's good that the theme for Kindaichi new drama is Yama-chan's solo. It's far better than pushing songs like Hitomi no Screen.
Beastrife: pic#104597150beastrife on November 17th, 2012 02:29 pm (UTC)
Well, I guess it's good that they made it a solo single instead of making it a group single and then pushing Yamada all the way forward and making everyone else back dancers like in Hitomi no Screen.

While I'm happy that he's getting a chance to try a solo CD, I hope that this will be the only one. Too much solo activities end up crippling the rest of the group.
