Jolin will attend Namie Amuro’s last concert in Okinawa, is rumoured to have a collaboration coming with Kris Wu, and more !

Namie Amuro’s official Facebook revealed yesterday that Jolin will be one of the guest performers at WE NAMIE FIREWORKS SHOW~I OKINAWA/I MUSIC~ concert in Okinawa on September 15th !

This event will be the last of the Japanese singer before her retirement on September 16th after 25 years of career.

Jolin said: “I feel very honored to participate in an event with Namie once again. It’s just like a dream. I think this will be the most unforgettable birthday present in my life (Jolin’s birthday is on September 15th). I look forward to see Namie’s beautiful smile on that day.”

Tom Wang, Jolin’s agent, added today that Jolin got an invitation from Namie Amuro last month, she was surprised and very happy, and immediately said yes !

As a consequence yesterday Jolin celebrated her birthday in advance with family and friends since she will perform with Namie on September 15th and leave for Milan Fashion Week afterwards.

Jolin and Namie Amuro’s friendship started 6 years ago when Ge Fuhong (a Taiwanese producer and agent, she co-founded with Jolin her label Eternal Music) arranged a meeting between them (pictures HERE), after Jolin attended Namie’s concerts in Taiwan in 2004 and 2009.
The first time they met they chatted casually and got along, which resulted in the collaboration I’m Not Yours in 2014. Namie also appeared in the MV and was a guest performer at Jolin’s PLAY World Tour the year after (this performance can be seen on PLAY World Tour DVD/BD).
Jolin sent a basket of flowers when Namie came back to Taiwan in 2016 for her LIVEGENIC Tour (pictures HERE). Back then Jolin learned that Namie loved Baumkuchen, so she bought her one which was given to her backstage.
She also attended Namie’s Finally Tour concert this year at Taipei Arena and offered her a cake.

As Samsung Galaxy Note 9’s new spokesperson, Jolin attended Samsung press conference in Taipei yesterday.

Full conference

Summary:

  • Jolin confirmed her appearance as a guest performer at one of 五月天 Mayday’s concerts next week in Beijing (from August 24th to August 26th). It’s still not ready yet though. Jolin added jokingly that she’s going to tone it down a little outfit-wise since it’s not one of her concerts. And also because Mayday will sing badly because of her if she’s too “hot” !
  • About the new album, its release is still expected before the end of the year. Jolin is working on it at the moment. Every 3 or 4 days she rushes the pace. She recorded 1-2 songs recently.
  • Jolin loves sports and fell in love recently with badminton and tennis. She’s not playing for competition but for fun.
