Yamada Ryosuke, Hey! Say! First Solo Debut
Popular member of Hey! Say! JUMP, Yamada Ryosuke‘s solo debut has been decided.
Debut song “Mistery Virgin” will be the theme song of NTV’s drama SP “Kindaichi Case Files: Hong Kong Kowloon Treasure Murder Case” where Yamada challenges the role of a high school detective. A song with a mysterious atmosphere, a drifting dance number and lyrics to match perfectly with the image of the drama.
Up until now he has performed in concerts alone and as a member of Hey! Say! JUMP, although he has shown his talent in singing and dancing before, this is the first time to perform an original solo song which will be released as a CD.
JUMP’s first attempt as solo artist, Yamada, “I’m glad I can do this in such a memorable occasion (60th Broadcasting Anniversary of NTV), though this has always been something in my dreams, I’m overjoyed”, he happily said.
Currently working in Tokyo Imperial Theater as part of the main cast of “JOHNNY’S World”, dedicated to commemorate Mr. Johnny Kitagawa (81) Guinness Certification Memorial. “I want to keep working hard and devoting myself as Hey! Say! JUMP’s Yamada Ryosuke”, he vowed.
His debut performance as solo artist will be held live in NTV’s music festival “Best Artist 2012″ to be broadcasted in November 28th (7PM). The single will be released in January 9th, 2013.

Yamada Ryosuke, you better make this good and you better stay in JUMP
- New comment
I know a lot of people got burned by Jin/Pi, and I get that no one wants the same thing to happen to JUMP, but I don't think it's fair to start cursing Yama-chan's name before his single's even out - he's not his senpai and we shouldn't assume he's going to make the same choices. Personally, I can't wait to see what he comes out with - he's one of my favorite voices in JUMP, and I'm glad I'll be able to hear it, whether with JUMP or by himself. And I suspect Yama-chan himself is a lot happier with this outcome than with, say, another NYC song.
