J-Pop duo YOASOBI made their United States performance debut a memorable one at Head in the Clouds LA. The team is riding the success of their hit single “Idol,” which continues to break its own record for most consecutive weeks at #1 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100. They have held this spot for 17 weeks and counting now!
YOASOBI delivered “Idol” in LA alongside Japanese group ATARASHII GAKK. They commanded the room with a multitude of their biggest hits, including “The Blessing,” “Into The Night,” and “Blue.” They closed the show with “Monster,” where Ikura was joined by Indonesian rapper Warren Hue. You can watch their dazzling concert below.
“Idol” is the theme song for a popular anime series “Oshi no Ko,” and the English version was released in celebration of the show’s success. In 2021, they released EP E-Side, as well as their Japanese album THE BOOK 2. Last year, they dropped an EP in English, E-Side 2, which Teen Vogue raved about. They also took the stage at major summer festivals in Japan and headed overseas for the first time to Jakarta and Manilla last December. YOASOBI is currently on their first arena tour across Japan, captivating crowds in Osaka, Sapporo, Sendai, and more.
“Ayase and Ikura have become permanent fixtures on Japan’s music charts while also making waves internationally.”
As “Idol” becomes one of the most popular Japanese songs of all time, the superstar couplet continues to strengthen their name and talent. The duo is made up of composer Ayase and vocalist Ikura, known for turning novels into music. This November, they will open for Coldplay on their Music of the Spheres World Tour at the Tokyo Dome on the 7th and 8th.
