Japanese dance/vocal group FAKY has released the music video for their latest song “Darling (Prod. GeG)”. The mellow love song was created in collaboration with producer “GeG” from “HENTAI SHINSHI CLUB”, who is at the forefront of the Japanese reggae and hip-hop scenes.
The music video is an emotional work which surrounds the members in an exotic sunset to showcase their sensual choreography and create a dreamy and elegant vibe. Beginning with “the story that begins beyond the door”, close-ups of the members express the emotional lyrics.
FAKY has established their reputation for powerful performances, and their “Girls Power” dance single trilogy has achieved more than 7 million views on YouTube. The combination of reggae and hip-hop, which is rare for Japanese girl groups, is the latest move by FAKY to expand their status as the “new wave in the J-Pop world”.
Taki: “This song is the perfect road trip song with friends or alone, and it’s a good song to help you start your day on a good vibe. The beat alone is very danceable, but the lyrics are emotional and deep. This song reflects a whole new FAKY. Most of our songs are very powerful, but this is the only song of FAKY that shows that we get hurt, too, and that we’re still human and go through emotional moments like everyone else.”
Akina: “This song is the first time we’ve had to dig down deep and show our raw side. Everyone experiences different types of heartbreak in life, and I hope this song will resonate with anyone who’s felt the emptiness caused by a broken heart.”
Lil’ Fang: “Throughout this whole MV, both the inside and outside of me are projected to the world under the theme of a sunset. All of us express our feelings of frustration in our own way, so I would be happy if that feeling can be conveyed through this song.”
Hina: “For this MV, I would like the fans to pay attention to the very beautiful and emotional setting and the members’ expressions, such as the lights of the scene where the members are in the room and the sunset reflected on the LED during the dance scene. I hope fans can see a new side of FAKY.”
Mikako: “I think this MV will give you a glimpse of the new FAKY, the real parts of each member, and the bare parts that are exposed honestly. I put all my thoughts into my facial expressions, gestures, as well as how to move my eyes. My chest feels tight no matter how many times I look at it!”
“Darling (Prod. GeG)” is available now on digital services worldwide.
Since the group formed in 2013, FAKY’s YouTube videos have reached over 25 million views from fans in over 120 countries. The members of FAKY are from diverse backgrounds but have come together in Tokyo to make not just J-Pop music, but a broad musicality combined with a mainstream sound.
