So, I got a surprise in the mail today:

This is only part of my Christmas presents to me. I also bought her “_genic” album and…1TYM‘s “Third Time Fo Yo Mind!” and a videogame. I haven’t bought it yet, but I’m going to and I’m excited about it. It’s “Tales of Xillia 2” I’m super excited about it.

And my friend bought me “FFXIV: A Realm Reborn” and it comes with one month free. I now own every main title in the FF franchise.

Anywho, that’s not what we’re talking about here. We’re talking about my queen. More specifically, my Japanese pop queen, Namie Amuro.

Her latest single, “Red Carpet” was released on the 2nd of December, and I LOVE IT. The song is FUCKING FANTASTIC and rocks my socks like evuuur.

The only thing I’m disappointed in is realizing that I bought the CD instead of the CD/DVD combination.

The second one is Crystal Kay‘s latest single, “Revolution,” and the title track features MY QUEEN, NAMIE FUCKING AMURO and they are gorgeous and fantastic.

I love Crystal Kay anyway, but Namie was added and I HAD to have it. I don’t think I’ve missed physically buying a namie amuro CD since “Uncontrolled,” except for “Alive,” but I have that digitally.

So back to Crystal, love the girl, but Japanese music is expensive, and I have to pick and choose, and Namie is always at the top of the list. However, I only recently heard about it because Namie’s official page posted the music video, hence why I realized that Crystal released a single, and subsequently bought it.

Her single also includes songs, “Shooting Star,” “hard to say (MSG version), “Revolution (PKCZ Remix feat. SWAY),” and the instrumental to “Revolution.” The single was released back on September 2nd.

And luckily, I remembered to purchase the CD/DVD version ^_^

Anyway, I love these new singles, and the title songs specifically have music videos, so watch the short version of those here:

I bought my CDs, as I usually do, from eBay, and they are Taiwanese releases, so they were cheaper than the Japanese releases. However, they came in pristine condition and work perfectly.
