JUJU "Request" Exclusive Interview Translation

Original: Excite!

I thought, “Wow, even I’d like to see what it would be like for me to sing this”

--You just finished your long-awaited cover album.  It started out as a request project on your website, but you heard the voices of the fans and did it.  What are your feelings on this album?

JUJU: I thought, “Wow, even I’d like to see what it would be like for me to sing this,” and I picked songs that I thought would be especially awesome.  I was really interested by the idea.

--As a result, you amassed several famous songs, centered around 90’s hits.  Are there any songs that surprised you?

J: There were.  I was surprised to find that I want to listen to my recording of the brilliant green song (M-5 “There will be love there –Ai no Aru Basho-“), as well as the JUDY AND MARY song “LOVER SOUL.”  I would have loved to sing something by YUKI, since I sing her music in karaoke and know it really well, but I didn’t really want to show that part of me to everyone, so I took a pass on that. (laugh)

--“There will be love there –Ai no Aru Basho-” was a surprise, but the execution is smooth.  What was it like to sing?
