TEMPURA KIDZ and Charisma.com Collaborate on New Single!
At the end of the concert, the two groups announced to release a single together under the moniker of TEMPURA KIDZ vs Charisma.com. The new song will be released on Wednesday, August 6th.
This feisty electro rap tune is about those who try to act like others. It describes them as mummies because it’s like they prefer being wrapped and hidden in bandages.
Formed in Harajuku, TEMPURA KIDZ has gained national popularity for its snappy dance performances. They decided to join forces with Charisma.com, a rap duo consisting of two businesswomen that are known for their provocative lyrics, after meeting and getting along at the music event Zanzibar Night.
For the music video, the bands reproduced a typical ‘80s music show experience in a comical way. The Charisma.com members also adorned ’80s-inspired outfits, and played reporter and director roles.
Supported by the music show BOMBER-E, in which the two bands made guest appearances in the past, the filming of the video took place at the Nagoya TV station and other areas that are popular among locals such as Nagoya castle and Osu Shotengai.
The music video also starred Natsuko Shiojiri (a MC of BOMBER-E) and Wolfy (the promotional character of Nagoya Television). Natsuki wore bubbly ‘80s makeup and hair, and tried her hand at acting by turning into a mummy towards the end of the video. Also, the clip includes a scene of the studio being overwhelmed by mummies.
The single will go on sale on August 6th. Meanwhile, you can check out the video here!
