Jin Akanishi looking forward to US debut in November

Jin Akanishi’s single “TEST DRIVE featuring JASON DERULO” will go on sale on November 8 in the USA, it was revealed on October 9, reports Asahi Shimbun and Chunichi Sports.


Akanishi’s single will be available on iTunes, but will not be available in Japan.  Instead, Japanese fans will be able to buy Akanishi’s mini album, which will be released on December 7.


It has been reported Jason Derulo said he enjoyed working with the Johnny’s talent.

“Jin is a really nice guy and it was easy to get along with him.  I had a lot of fun recording with him.  I’m glad I was able to collaborate with Akanishi.”


Producers, the Stereotypes, also said they had fun working with Akanishi.

“We’d heard that he was a superstar in Japan, but he’s friendly.  We want people to pay attention to his vocals.”


Akanishi’s debut had been delayed because the singer had spent most of this summer filming “47 – RONIN” (due out in December 2012) in London, which stars Keanu Reeves in the lead role.  In between shoots, the singer had met up with producers and done little bits of recording.

“I’m excited about being able to share my music with more people, and I want to thank my fans for making this possible,” Akanishi said.
