Rie fu’s Official Site
Rie fu, one the talented singer in Japan who influenced by 70’s American Pops during the 3 years life in Maryland,US. These 3 years also took away her Japanese-slang English, maybe this is one of the reasons she tends to mix the Japanese and English lyrics on her songs. Some of the J-Pop fans may took a lots of attention on her songs because of a anime Bleach.
Rie fu 4th single negaigoto was released at 31st of August 2005. This is the first time she wrote the lyrics with pure Japanese. This ballad remains Rie fu’s typical style, don’t have too much interference of instrumental. This song may brings you some bore at the beginning, try to ruminate the song few more time and you will see the magic of this song. The b-side 2cm is the song from her debut album Rie fu, but this is the live unplugged version from MTV which sounds even better than the original.
