The J-pop girl group FAKY continues to show the rising appeal of modern-day Japanese pop with their latest English single.
FAKY delivers a new version of their bold 2015 release "Candy," reworked in English for maximum accessibility and impact.
With five singles to hit No. 1 on iTunes Japan, a Best Newcomer nomination at the MTV Video Music Awards Japan, not to mention a newly signed deal with British record label XVII Music Group, FAKY's international footprint looks poised to grow bigger with this deliciously punchy, slightly trappy pop anthem.
"'Candy' is the first song we ever recorded together so it's very special to us," the band's New Zealand–born member Anna told Billboard about the particular importance of this release. "It's also the catchiest song out of the whole album, and such a fun one to perform, too."
Made up of Anna, Mikako, Akina and Lil' Fang, FAKY has been experimenting with new and global sounds in their international expansion, currently in the studio with British producers like DJ Fresh, with more collaborations reported to be on the way. The reworked "Candy" single is available on all digital platforms on Friday, Feb. 16.
