Sawamura Ikki & JUJU to sing the theme song for NTV Autumn 2016 drama "Rental Kyuuseishu"
Sawamura Ikki and JUJU will be doing a duet for the theme song of his upcoming NTV Autumn 2016 drama "Rental Kyuuseishu" which will begin its run from 9 October in the Sundays 10.30pm timeslot. The song which is untitled at the moment, will be an up-tempo number and released under the name of JUJU feat. Akenabe Yuugo which is the name of Sawamura's character in the drama. Sawamura commented that when he first heard of the offer to sing the theme song with JUJU, he thought that he was hearing things and asked thrice to make sure that it was for real. This is the third time that they are working together as JUJU had sung the theme song for Sawamura's 2010 TV Asahi drama "Keishicho Shissounin Sousaka" which led to them being good friends. Sawamura had even gone to her concerts before. Sawamura joked that since he is nicknamed Ero Danshaku for his sexy voice, he thinks that the theme song will be filled with pheromones as well. As for JUJU, she said that it was great to be able to see Sawamura sing live. The two of them also expressed their wish to be able to sing the song on music TV programmes or concerts.
The last time when Sawamura released a song was for 2007 NTV drama "Hatarakiman" when he sang the ending theme titled "Hatarakiman Ondo" under the name of Hataraki Mitsuru.
