Did I miss this news somewhere? Apparently they signed with Avex and are starting off with a collaboration with Namie Amuro for her upcoming collab album "Checkmate!"

Preview of Namie Amuro feat. AFTERSCHOOL - "make it happen"

:wub: :wub: :wub:

Official AFTERSCHOOL Japanese website

(I originally started this as a thread for Namie's album in the Music Chat section because I just saw the Wonder Woman PV feat. AI & Anna Tsuchiya, but then I found the After School news and MV preview. THIS IS MORE IMPORTANT.)

I can't make a thread for everything. I'm only one person so I hoped someone would make a thread. If not I was going to make one this weekend because it's awesome news. Thanks for doing it for me, hurr~! :danceman:

Namie's whole collab album looks awesome so I might have to buy it. :whistling:

But anyway, yeah After School, this is great news. They'll probably fill the void Kara will leave behind because apparently they've fallen out of favor with a lot of Japanese.

Do want. I gotta listen to this when I have the chance.

PV is out, PV is out, PV IS OUT!!!!

Those dresses are ridiculously hot.
The song however is absolutely average and after listening to it one time I can't even remember if there was a destinctive refrain or anything like that.

It's disappointing that it's basically just "Namie Amuro and some background dancers", since I'm not interested in her at all and would have prefered a focus on After School.

Yeah I'm with Ap2000. Namie sucks so much shit, so on a personal level this collab pisses me off (especially since it sounds okay until Namie's stupid face ruins everything), but I do think After School is kinda taking a smart route by attaching themselves to an already-established (if thoroughly worthless) huge Japanese act. I'm sure what the deal is exactly, but if they get signed on avex there's also a good chance they'll learn Japanese f'real, so it's probably really good for them. I may not be their biggest fan ever (I only really know Nana, Raina and Ju-Yeon), but I want them to be successful.

Y'all crazy. Namie's been eight types of awesome since her comeback and I really like this song. Yeah, AFTER SCHOOL is pretty much tacked on here, but I'd never heard of them before and I'd probably check them out.

(is this why all my Namie threads dies? :puppyeyes:)

I semi-like both Namie and After School: I have some of their songs, but none are favorites of mine. But I'm loving the shit out of this song and video. I'd have preferred it to be longer and have more After School, but for what it is I'm not going to complain. I think I'll still like it a lot after it sinks in.

I'm off to re-listen to the After School songs I have. This has re-kindled an interest in them. :dammit:
