Well What Do You Know, They Were Right…Dreams Come True

Filed under: Hey! Say! JUMP — amaiyume @ 5:04 pm

Once upon a time, in 2007, ten boys were put together to create what we now know as Hey!! Say! JUMP. The fandom for them has been…well…sort of a roller coaster. I’ve never stopped loving them or wanting to support them but it’s VERY hard to support people who don’t release anything…we had 1 DVD for 2009…and of course the photobook whichย I also bought but release wise…nothing. With YamaChii off with NYC boys…I was thinking that the future was beginning to look a little bleak and we’d get another ignored group…now remember their 2nd single, Dreams Come True? Well apparently they weren’t lying because Hey! Say! JUMP is set to release their debut album this summer!!!!!!!!

Honestly, words can’t even express how excited I am for this album…we all know it’s been a LONG time coming…so I’d like to take the chance to express my gratitude to the ten boys for working SO hard and here they are…they DEFINITELY deserve it. I can safely say there hasn’t been an A-side that I haven’t enjoyed and I hope the album quality is right up there! Now…on the flip side…it’s been what, 2 1/2 years since Ultra Music Power…part of me says this album BETTER be good. Taking a little detour, there is a beautiful girl by the name of alan. She’s one of my favorite artists and it took her a LONG time to release her debut album as well…8 singles before the album…now that’s a lot…and yet they were all magnificent and when the album came around, the album tracks were just as amazing, some even more than the singles. So my point is that the long wait CAN pay off so let’s hope Hey! Say! JUMP won’t be pulling out cheap tracks as fillers…

So, let’s break it down. Here are my tips of what to do and not to do on this album…

+ SURIRU!!!!!!!! I really can’t say this enough but this song BETTER be on the album…I mean…it’s like BEST’s theme song or something! They like ALWAYS perform it and I think the standard songs should definitely be on the album. So do this.

+ Yamada solo…okay, let’s face the facts, they’re not ALL going to get a solo…it’s just not gonna happen…Ryutaro doesn’t even HAVE a solo! But Yamada’s have always been the best so Perfume please!!!!!!!! The others are good but Perfume is the best!!! And Johnny knows he wants to have Yamada getting all the girls (and me) crazy when we watch tour DVDs! Although I’m guessing we’ll get a new song from him but as long as it’s good like the other 3, then I don’t care. I’m not too worried…Yamada is being the sexy one so I’m expecting something of high quality from him.

+ MORE Daiki, Kei and Keito!!!!! Can we have like…a trio song from the three of them or something?? I’m SOO glad Daiki is finally beginning to get recognized and getting that little push so let’s not stop the momentum! And Kei and Keito are my loves with very good voices so I can’t have them abandoned XD

+ I would say…15 tracks is a good number…I’m sure there will be 1/2 songs available only on the regular edition…I would say 16 so we could have a full ten tracks but I feel like they might cut an A-side…and I think we all know which one that will be…although I do NOT want them to do that!!

– DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT include BORN in the EARTH. Honestly, I can’t even articulate why this should not be on the album…just listen to the song and you’ll know why. It totally wouldn’t surprise me if Johnny decided to make this the opening track but PLEASE do not put this on the album…like for real…seriously. Don’t.

– Don’t try and make this YamaChii featuring Hey! Say! JUMP…I mean groups have leads and we all have to accept that and 10 members IS a lot of members but…seriously, there are other people with talent and they deserved to get recognized. I’m thinking that they’re going to do…3 shuffle songs…one with Yamada lead, one with Chii lead and then…Yabu lead? I don’t know…I just really hope Yamada and Chii don’t end up hogging the whole album…and don’t give all the good songs to one person! I hate it when good people get bad songs…

In the end, just make this an album WORTH waiting 2 1/2 years for…I think it’s as simple as that. They aren’t going to please everyone but really…just don’t forget that Hey! Say! JUMP is going in a mature direction and thus the album should follow suit…if there are a bunch of cute tracks or lame slow ones…someone’s going out a window…and I don’t even know who yet.

Aside from all that, let’s all cheer for Hey! Say! JUMP!!!!!!!!!!

This message has been brought to you by sexy Dai-chan. If you’re on the fence about buying / listening to the album…just look at the picture above and your worries shall be cleared up.

And sorry for being so sucky with the blog lately but I will be on summer vacation and will have plenty time to blog! And what do you know, we’re in the midst of a release!!!



  1. I can articulate why Boned in the Earth shouldn’t be included. It sucks.

  2. ๐Ÿ™‚
    everyone gets a solo, actually! i read online on a japanese site that there are two cds, the first is for group songs, and the 2nd cd is for each member’s solo!
    i’ll try to find the source and link you ๐Ÿ™‚

    • oh really???
      That would be great if you could find a source!!
      I think this is the only fair way to make the album so I would love it if it was true!!!

  3. Oh, FINALLY!! Now I can’t stop listening to Dreams Come True again (;
    It took them way too long just for an album?!! Five singles is a lot!! It’s almost eight!!
    **btw, i LOVE alan too (=

    HAH, I KNEW you would put Suriru first!!!! xD But yes, we need that. (Preferably with a shirtless PV!! …Kay, I can always hope)
    Sorry, but Midnight is my favorite solo for Yama-chan (; Sooooooooo sekushii!! Hahahaha! Although Perfume is an extremely close second.
    Ohkay, if there’s rumors like that going on, then everyone NEEDS solos!! Rumors like that get everyone’s hopes up…)= Preferably for Ryutaro and Keito and Daiki!!

    And if they put BORN in the EARTH, how about you and me do…uh, something drastic?!! I don’t know what but I’m sure we’ll think of something immediately if they do ;D

    • yessss!!! I’ve had the ending of Dreams come true stuck in my head recently XD, Yabu = love
      It definitely took them a while…but I’m sure it’ll be worth it!!
      yay!!! alan is…pure awesomeness concentrated in one person XD

      hahahhaa you know me!!! [YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS – there isn’t a DVD portion…but that doesn’t mean they can’t make a PV anyway hahaha] [I’m still all for BEST doing a mini album someday…]
      Midnight is awesome and I loved the performance but…Perfume is just so fun and jazzy…and sexy. Perfect mix! [although please no Chii and Ryu-chan backup]
      I really do wish everyone would get a solo!!! Especially Ryu-chan just for the simple fact that he doesn’t have one yet :(…and Kei and Daiki just because they MUST!!!!!

      I’m with you! I seriously cannot allow them to include it in good conscious…none of that please…

  4. Yabu is the very definition of love. And I don’t care how cheesy that is xD
    Of course it’s worth it! And I hope they know how grateful they should be to have great fans like us to wait years for an album xD
    ooh, alan. if i was a guy…(; [winkwink]

    That’s an awesome idea! An HS7 and HSB mini-album! They can have a few songs and then film at least one video [You know, a shirtless one for Suriru xD ahaha]@@
    Chii and Ryutaro were too loud when they were back-ups ! You can barely hear Yama-chan! But I agree with you, Perfume is simply an awesome song, and it would have been my favorite if I didn’t fall in love with Midnight.
    Yes, because I barely know what Ryutaro sounds like when he sings! Out of everyone, if only ONE person can have a solo, I pick Ryutaro. Because he’s been neglected so much and taken for granted.

    I would seriously stab Johnny with a pencil if he decided to include that song. D:

    • hahhaha the cheesiest things are often the truest (why else would people use them so often that they become cheesy) XD
      yess!!!! and they better thank us by making us an EPIC album!!
      hehehe, alan is GORGEOUS!!! Inside and out ^^

      yess!!! I mean Kei still has school but…they’re much more free than Hey! Say! 7 so they could do more promotion…you know, if Johnny did promotion for albums…and yes, a shirtless PV would be amazing!! or at least a dozen shirtless performances ๐Ÿ˜›

      I know!!! It really bothered me so I always have to watch performances when they’re not backup XD
      yeah yeah, ALL of Yama-chan’s solos are awesome but Perfume ranks 1 for me…Moonlight is still amazing though ^^

      Me neither!!! It really makes me sad how some members get put do the back like that…apparently Johnny figures a “dance solo” is sufficient for him *grumbles*

      hahhahaha and I would be right there with you!!!

  5. Aww, true! I think the key to winning a girl’s heart is to do cheesy stuff! Give her flowers, tell her she’s pretty, and say cheesy stuff! xD
    I’m sure they will! HSJ [almost] never disappoints!
    I’m jealous of alan, teehee xD But who isn’t?

    Yes, everyone in HS7 has school, and it’s just Kei in HSB. I’m sure he’ll have some time here and there for a mini album! It could be something fun – No pressure, none of any ‘work’ vibe. Like a hobby!
    Hahaha, I would prefer the shirtless performance AND the PV!

    I usually don’t like back-ups for any performance. I think it should just be the singer, especially if it’s live.

    Dance solo is still hot though. [; We have to be thankful that we get that, at least. It’s his few seconds to shine by being the most sexy 14-year old in the world! Haha.

    • haha that’s the best stuff!!! It could definitely win my heart as well XD
      Yep…they may have some bad songs…but I love all the A-sides so I’m filled with hope ๐Ÿ™‚
      hehehe and not only is she gorgeous…but that voice…absolutely breathtaking…without a doubt, one of my favorite artists now and forever ^^

      Well there’s only one option…Kei-chan drop out of school!
      JK!!!! He worked really hard so I want him to do his best! And besides…it’s not like he gets much attention anyway ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
      But it could be a little summer thing for them!
      hahahhaa and that PV needs to be on a mini album…I would just keep it in my computer at all times XD

      agreed! It’s Yama-chan’s solo…I think it was really cute of them to dance with him but…no singing please XD

      I’ve never seen his dance solo!!!
      hahahaha I don’t know…B.I. Shadow is around his age… ๐Ÿ˜›
