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.

Beside Arashi's Ohno who was mentioned (he did for his film, Daibutsu-kun or something, Uta no Oniichan for sure)

SMAP's Goro, Shingo, Tsuyoshi - Goro has one for a film (I give you my heart, plus as his alter ego &G - Tsuyoshi as Chonankan released solo CDs, Shingo ha so many it's hard top count, but let's see he released CDs as Shingo-mama, Ninja Hattori-kun (for the drama with Chinen), Ryo-san, he has a duo song in the past with some lady artist, and now with Yamapi

What is common among the examples you gave with the exception of Yapamit, is that they never debuted as solo artists and they released their singles as alter egos, not themselves.
