I listened to "Trust me" and "YOU" because the author of BeyondTheSea recommended him and I think his songs are nice. I look forward to his debut album!

Haha yea Lex has really good taste in music. I started listening to BONNIE PINK because of him and a few other artists.

I actually heard of Yuya Matsushita before Lex started talking about him. I had seen him mentioned on JMD but didn't really take not at first but than I heard him being talked about a lot on two other Asian music communities.

I had checked out Trust You and then the rest of his past materials. I really like both his uptempo songs and ballads. His mid tempo songs are bad either. He's just so versatile being able to pull off all three tempos and he dances, acts and has starred in two musicals as Sebastian Michaelis for Kuroshitsuji.

Here's a whole bunch of pictures from livedoor from the musical



I've seen clips of the musical and it's not bad. Though I've heard his voice is a lot higher than the original character in the anime.

I'm excited to see that Agitation is on the track list. I've seen it on youtube and can't wait to hear a better quality of that song.

He just has so much potential since he already has the talent, so it'll be interesting to see how he progresses.

「Bird」, a new song by 松下優也, will be used as the ending theme in the Anime 「黒執事II」. The anime will start airing in July.

I think Kalafina is doing the opening for the anime.

I thought his album was okay. Nothing special, but some songs are nice.

Oh, and he will also start a career in korea this year!

Really. Haha interesting. Thanks for mentioning it. Will it be in music, musical/theater or acting?

I only had two problems with the album ... too many interludes (they were not necessary) and not enough new songs for it to be appealing.

^ Thanks

@Rodri, he's also done musical theater and acting and he sings ballads (those are usually his b-sides)

Singer Yuya Matsushita (20) has been given his first starring role in a movie, titled "Hikari, Sono Saki e." The film is scheduled for release this fall, but it will also get limited digital distribution starting next month.

Matsushita debuted as a singer in November 2008, but he has also become well-known for playing the lead in the "Kuroshitsuji" musical for the past two years.

"Hikari, Sono Saki e" apparently originated from Matsushita's new song "4 Seasons." The film features Matsushita playing himself as he balances his bright career as a musician with his life as a young man who experiences conflict and feelings of loneliness. Kana Kurashina (22) is playing the heroine role, while models Reiko Tokita (26) and Layla Aoyama (22) will make guest appearances. The movie is directed by Shintaro Ehara, who has handled music videos for Matsushita and major artists such as Miliyah Kato and Ken Hirai.

"4 Seasons" is being used as the movie's theme song, and it will be released as the double A-side single "Bird / 4 Seasons" on August 25.
