Popular styles of Japanese pop music included technopop during the s—s, city pop in the s, and Shibuya-kei in the s. The origin of modern J-pop is said to be Japanese-language rock music inspired by the likes of The Beatles.
Inthe Japanese subsidiary of Tower Records defined J-pop as all Japanese music belonging to the Recording Industry Association of Japan except Japanese independent music which they term "J-indie" ; their stores began to use additional classifications, such as J-club, J-punk, J-hip-hopJ-reggaeJ-animeand Visual kei byafter independent musicians started to release works via major labels.
Hide of Greeeen openly described their music genre as J-pop. He said, "I also love rock, hip hop and breakbeats, but my field is consistently J-pop. For example, hip hop musicians learn 'the culture of hip hop' when they begin their career. We are not like those musicians and we love the music as sounds very much. Those professional people may say 'What are you doing?
The good thing is good. However, the melodies were often written according to the traditional Japanese pentatonic scale. Jazz musician Ryoichi Hattori attempted to produce Japanese native music which had a "flavor" of blues. Modern J-pop is also sometimes believed to have had its roots with Chinese immigrant jazz musicians who had fled Shanghai during the communist takeoverand were collaborating with the U. Inwhen the communists took over and established the People's Republic of China on the mainlandone of the first actions taken by the government was to denounce popular music specifically both Chinese pop music, known as Mandopopand Western pop music as decadent musicand for decades afterwards the Communist Party would promote Chinese revolutionary songs while suppressing Chinese folk songs, Chinese pop songs and Western pop songs.
Around the same time, Yakuza manager Kazuo Taoka reorganized the concert touring industry by treating the performers as professionals. Many of these performers later became key participants in the J-pop genre. InJapan's rock and roll craze began, due to the country music group known as Kosaka Kazuya and the Wagon Masters; their rendition of Elvis Presley 's song " Heartbreak Hotel " helped to fuel the trend. It also received a gold record for selling one million copies.
After frequently changing members, Chosuke Ikariya re-formed The Drifters in under the same name. At a Beatles concert inthey acted as curtain raisers, but the audience generally objected. The Ventures visited Japan incausing the widespread embrace of the electric guitar called the " Ereki boom".
Most Japanese musicians felt that they could not sing rock in Japaneseso the popularity of Japanese rock gradually declined. Rock music remained a relatively underground music genre in the early s in Japan,  though Happy End managed to gain mainstream success fusing rock with traditional Japanese music.
The most notable was the internationally renowned Isao Tomitawhose album Electric Samurai: Switched on Rock featured electronic synthesizer renditions of contemporary rock and pop songs. InEikichi Yazawa 's rock single "Jikan yo Tomare" "Time, Stop" became a smash hit that sold overcopies. He recorded the albums YazawaIt's Just Rock n' Rolland Flash in Japanall of which were released worldwide, but were not very commercially successful. Southern All Stars remains very popular in Japan today.The eight-song album was released on June 23,while the iTunes version was released one week earlier.
The whole album was produced by Alex FungJoey's friend and famous singer-producer. Its theme is to provide positive energy, and to encourage Hong Kong people.
This was the first time Joey released an album digitally first, instead of having the physical albums on stock on the same day.
One day later, a lyric video was released on her channel . The public was surprised by the sudden release, the genre and the theme of the song. Although it ended up not being very popular, the Jan Lamb featured song was still mostly praised. At this point, they had targeted on cheering up Hong Kong people as the theme of the album, thus the release of upbeat songs.
The music video was shot at Last Vegas at Christmas during the American stop of her Concert tour. Joey invited Korean musicians, music video director and choreographers for her next plug, " Available ". The song was heavily inspired by Korean pop songs.\
The Wyman Wong penned single received three number 1s in major Hong Kong media platforms. Before the album's release, Joey released one more single, " Nobody Knows a Gemini ". Contrary to the three upbeat or mid-tempo songs released, this one is a classic Cantopop ballad. Joey collaborated with new musician, Cousin Fung for the first time.
Long time friend, lyricist Wyman Wong once again wrote the song specifically for Joey, describing the personalities and feelings of a Gemini. The song also received three number 1s in major Hong Kong media platforms. It gained a nice momentum and received two number 1s. They failed to chart due to little to no promotion.
