GO FOR IT BABY Music Video & Special Campaign Details

Posted on March 23, 2012 by Tobias in News

We are just little over a week away from the release of B'z 50th single GO FOR IT BABY -kioku no sanmyaku- and the music video for said single has been posted on the band's official YouTube channel today. I have uploaded the video for your convenience - especially if you are from a region where you cannot view it (e.g. Germany). Feel free to leave your opinion on the music video in the comments!

Moreover, additional details regarding the Pepsi NEX special campaign have been unveiled. As you know, with the purchase of B'z new single you get the chance to win one out of two thousand B'z x Pepsi NEX special T-Shirts! All you have to do is send in the postcard that comes with the single. Now the designs of these T-Shirts have been revealed.

When you receive your postcard with the single, you can choose whether you'd like type A or type B in case you are one of the few lucky winners. You'll also have to choose your T-Shirt size (M or L only).

Deadline for submission is April 30th, 2012.

Billboard Japan Music Awards 2011

Posted on March 2, 2012 by Tobias in News

The annual Billboard Japan Music Awards take place on March 3rd, 2012. B'z has been nominated in the categories "Top Pop Artist 2011" and "Animation Artist of the Year 2011" for providing a song to the Detective Conan series with their 49th single "Don't Wanna Lie".

Last year, Koshi Inaba was nominated for "Top Pop Arist 2010" but unfortunately didn't get an award for his solo work. Also, it has already been one year since Tak Matsumoto won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album! I remember it like it was yesterday. Such a great moment.
