Name: Miura Daichi
Birth Date: August 24, 1987
Origin: Okinawa, South Korea
Entertainment Company: Avex
Notable Songs: “Replay”, “The Answer”, “Excite”, “Darkest Before Dawn”, “U”
Daichi debuted at a young age with a group called “Folder” in 1997. Now, twenty years later, Daichi has made a name for himself as a prominent R&B soloist.
I do not typically listen to Japanese R&B. Daichi’s music is much different from what I usually listen to. However, it is a good deviation. Daichi’s silk-like voice is easy on the ears and his smooth dance moves are a treat to the eyes. Combining these traits make him a good performer. I can’t help but get excited every time I see his music videos or live performances. He has a suave persona that is hard to resist.
My favourite songs from him are “Replay”, “Excite” and “Darkest Before Dawn”. These songs will be featured in my “Top 100 Japanese Songs” list for this year.
