DJ June New York Club Chartニューヨーク・クラブチャート – June 30, 2015

Знаменитый японский женщин-ди-джеем в Нью-Йорке


  1.  Can’t Feel My Face – The Weeknd

この曲 いいですね!アップテンポで 少しオールドスクール的な感じのR&B、誰でも この曲好きって言いそうな ノリのいい曲です。プロデューサーは ちょー有名なPop界の最高位 Max Martin。ブリトニー、Back street boys, N Sync..などなど 数多くのヒット曲を生み出して 彼らをスターにしたプロデューサー。最初聞いた時 Max Martinだと知らなかったけど、いい曲だな!って思ったんですが、プロデュース名聞いて なるほど やっぱりって感じでした。ヒットした映画 50 Shade Of Greyの挿入歌 Earned It も メローですっごく素敵な曲ですよね。今 ブレークしている The Weeknd、これからの活躍が凄く楽しみです。

I love this new up and coming The Weeknd song produced by Swedish mega producer Max Martin known for making Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys, N Sync and many more big stars. The funky up-tempo song has Old School flavor and if you love R&B you can’t resist this song. So nice! I didn’t notice that this was made by Max Martin at first when I learned I was like, yeah, no wonder……..The Weeknd’s smash “Earned It” which has helped carry the movie 50 Shades of Grey on the Billboard 200 is also great mellow song. Can’t take my eyes off of The Weeknd!!

  1. Watch me – Silento

この曲 振り付けがあって、これがかかると みんなでお決まりのダンスをして凄く楽しそうです。今までヒットした振りのついたダンスをSilento (アトランタ出身のニューカマー) が 名前挙げていくんですが、どれも簡単な振りで誰でも踊れるようになってます!

“Watch Me” comes with a string of dance move you have to follow. Atlanta’s new comer Silento names each famous dance move along with the song and by the time the end of the song, you can master whole dance! It’s like a magic.

  1. Want To Want Me – Jason Derulo

夏ぽくて爽やかな アップテンポ Pop/  R&B。とってもいい曲なんですが、あんまりクラブではかかってないような気がします。曲調としては Maroon 5 が歌っててもピッタリな感じです。

Jason Derulo’s very catchy Pop/R&B song is perfect for the summer. Not played at clubs though. The song itself would fit for Maroon 5, I think.

The Weeknd – “Kiss Land” Tour

Read in Japanese

Originally from Toronto, Canada, Abel Tesfaye known as his stage name The Weeknd performed in front of screaming 6,000 fans at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall 2 sold-out shows on Monday, October 7 and Tuesday, October 8.

New York City has always held a special place in his heart. He shared that the first time he ever left his native Canada after 21 years was to tour in NYC. He played “Bowery Ballroom” and Music Hall of Williamsburg to promote his acclaimed mixtape “House of Balloons.”

“New York! You guys brought me back here, at Radio City Music Hall this time. Thank you.” 23-year-old said humbly.

Like the album artwork of “Kiss Land,’ the stage was set against dazzling neon lights of Tokyo’s Shibuya district.

The set featured a well-paced balance of songs from his entire catalog, blending the new songs in with fan favorites from the Trilogy era.

While performing the title track of his album “Kiss Land,” massive backdrop screens projecting graphic scenes of Japanese lesbian porn.

Drake didn’t come out to support his fellow Torontonian for “Life For,” but The Weeknd’s band cleanly picked up any slack and thousands of adoring fans at Radio City Music Hall sang along with him.
