NMB48’s Yamamoto Sayaka challenges her first solo

On January 15th, NMB48 announced that captain Yamamoto Sayaka will be making her “solo debut” with their third single, “Junjou U-19“.

As we reported earlier, the single will be available in four different versions: Type A (CD+DVD), Type B (CD+DVD), Type C (CD+DVD), and ‘Theatre’ (CD-only). Yamamoto’s solo song, “Jungle Gym” will be included in the ‘Theatre’ edition of the single.

“Jungle Gym” was written by AKB48 mastermind Akimoto Yasushi. It is described as a medium tempo ballad. This will also be the first solo song from NMB48.

Yamamoto expressed, “It’s a love song that I can relate to. If you’re a girl, you’ve probably experienced it at least once in your life… ”

Additionally, the coupling track by the Under Girls has been revealed to be “Baatari GO!”

“Junjou U-19″ is set for release on February 8th.

Tbh, I'm feeling nervous for my girl.
This is the first time a solo has been ever included in a group single(meaning AKB/SKE/NMB) in 48Family, so it is a little worrying.

I think she is anxious herself but if she ever gets too nervous, she knows who she can cling onto again 8D


Anyway all the best CAPTAINNNN! I am really looking forward to her voiceee so I think it'll be hard for me to dislike the song unless the song itself really sucks. SO YEAH AKI-P YOU BETTER GIVE HER AN EPIC SONG to show off what she is fully capable of.

Third, actually.
You're forgetting Erepyon's "FIRST LOVE" and I'm pretty sure a member of SDN also had a solo on a single before.

sorry I didn't count SDN in since they are technically graduated members but my bad since they are 48Family after all.

Wow's not that I forgot. Tbh, I actually didn't know! I'm a pretty recent 48fan...recent as in from around 2010-2011 period so I was not aware of Erepyon's solo. Thanks for telling though! :)

yup, it was Meetan ;____; but it was released as a separate single with a pseudonym.

There's a really strange story behind this single, she had to sell 10000 copies in a month or leave the group, and since AKB wasn't popular at that point she almost didn't make it.

Who is her AKB48 rival?
rainbow_yarn 16th-Jan-2012 08:17 am (UTC)
...does she challenge the solo to a duel?
convenience93 16th-Jan-2012 11:34 am (UTC)
