Maki’s new single flys in

 
Maki Goto’s first single, Fly Away, is being released January 21st. But only as a digital single. The song is a collaboration wit Sweet Black. Who I’m not familiar with at all. But since Maki is the only one singing, I’m guessing he mixed the song.

The first thing I notice about the full version of the song, is the music is very reparative. The clap sounding parts actually give me a headache. But I love the Ahhh parts added into the music. They blend in really well. But overall, I’m really in love with the song. It has some hip hop elements to it, but she sings it really softly. And as usual her vocals are top notch.

The video is very sultry. Her videos always had the sex appeal to them, but this one is even more so because it’s Avex. Even the dance is sexy. It’s not noticeably, in your face sexy like Kumi’s dances. But it’s sexy in that sultry, enchantress kind of way.She starts out the video by rolling around in bed. Then she sits on the bed in nothing but a white sheet, giving off the innocent vibe. But the random mask scenes throw off the pace a bit.

Maki looks absolutely gorgeous in this video. This really is the prettiest she’s ever looked. Her new short hair gives her a more mature, confident, and sexy vibe. I think her charcoal/black jacket outfit is the best in the whole video. The sparkly dress she wear under it is really cute.

I think Koda Kumi could have some real competition for sexiest Avex artist now that Maki’s debuted.

Fly Away with Maki

As many of you know a few months back former Morning Musume member Maki Goto singed with Avex. Looking back on it, that was a perfect move by Maki at the perfect time. Considering what happened to Elder Club. Anyway a few days ago Maki’s Avex page was updated with a snazzy new look and a behind the scenes video which gives a preview of her new song Fly Away. http://rhythmzone.net/maki/index.html


Now I’m not a big Maki fan, and didn’t really follow her career when she was part of H!P. But I did love her songs Glass no Pumps and Sayonara Love Song. And Maki has always been a fantastic singer. In the beginning of the video, her acapella of the song sounds really pretty. But when the music starts it sounds even better. I’m really excited for this song it sounds like something I would listen to. The music itself is reason enough, it’s really awesome sounding.


There’s also new pictures of her on her official site. She looks gorgeous in them. And she looks really great with her short hair. She’s one of those people that look better with short hair. Like Ai Takahashi and Kanna Arihana look better with short hair too.
