Koda Kumi – WIND

Kuu promoting WIND
Artist: Koda Kumi
Product Code: RZCD-45311
Release Date: 2006.12.02
Genre: Pop/R&B
Label: Rhythm Zone
Format: CD only, limited to 50,000 copies

WIND is Koda Kumi’s 29th single, and the 11th in her 12 single collection. In order to generate sales, avex made the decision to create Kuu’s 12 single collection (which contained 13 singles). The catch was Kumi would release a single every week, most of which were limited to 50,000 copies. WIND’s cover was a bit odd, it featured Kuu as a man. The cover also draws from fashion in Italy. The song is the theme song of Fuji TV’s Torino 2006 Relay program.

Artist: Koda Kumi
Product Code: RZCD-45080
Release Date: 2003.03.05
Debut Ranking: #6
First Press: Limited Sleeves
Label: avex trax

Up till 2003, Koda Kumi was a “nobody” in the music scene. Most of her singles struggled to chart and she had only released one unpopular album. Koda Kumi was poorly promoted, didn’t bother about the creative aspect of music and was considered as overweight by Japanese strandards. Consequently Kumi resigned herself to remaining an underground singer and barely cared about what avex told her to release. Her record label had no confidence in her and Kumi knew that her career was doomed. However, Square Enix, noticed Kumi’s vocal potential and collaborated with avex to release a single for Final Fantasy X-2.
