Jin’s “Test Drive” roars

Jin Akanishi’s US debut roars along with the fancy cars decorating the accompanying video.
I don’t want to compare to other Asian artists who debuted in the US (and failed) but seems to me that his foray seemed to be off to a good start. The song “Test Drive” (feat. Jason Derulo) currently ranked first for the iTunes Dance Music charts.

Truth is, the music is danceable and I can imagine crews from America’s Best Dance Crew sampling it on the floor. It’s catchy, the beats are nice plus and polished-sounding.

Well, I wish Akanishi success — after all, he sacrificed his teen idol status for a shot of international stardom.
