Takahashi Minami to release her solo debut single + selected as opening theme song for upcoming drama ‘Saki’
It was announced that AKB48 group’s general manager Takahashi Minami’s solo debut single is set for release under NAYUTAWAVE RECORDS, in spring of 2013! The song is currently untitled but has already been chosen as the opening theme song to the upcoming drama ‘Saki‘ which will start airing on January 8th.
“Saki” is Fuji TV’s upcoming drama starring Nakama Yukie. As we reported last month, Nakama will be playing the same person she played in popular 2011 drama “Utsukushii Rinjin.” Though the opening theme song has not been recorded yet, it is said to be a dramatic and emotional rock ballad which symbolizes Takahashi’s solo debut.
Takahashi’s solo debut was announced during AKB48’s live concert “AKB48 in TOKYO DOME~1830m no Yume~” at the Tokyo Dome back on August 25th. Regarding the release of her solo debut single, Takahashi commented, “It is time for my dream to be a solo singer that I have wished for a long time, to come true. I know this would not have been possible without the fans who have trusted, and waited for me. Thank you very much. Though I feel little anxious that AKB48 members are not around me, I would like to put my all into the song, so my heart would reach to all of you.”
AKB48’s general producer, Akimoto Yasushi also commented about this, “Takamina has been leading the AKB48 group while encouraging the members that ‘your effort never goes unrewarded.’ Now it’s time to prove it by your own self as the general manager. Alright Takamina. We are ready for your solo debut.”
