Fujii Kaze is a name known worldwide thanks to his now famous track, Shinunoga E Wa. But there’s more to the story than is visible. In this article, we will go into the depths of this man’s story and find out a bit more about him and how he changed the view to Japanese Pop (J-pop).
Who is Fujii Kaze?
Fujii Kaze was born on 14 June in 1997, at Okayama, Japan. He’s the youngest son in the family, having one elder brother and two older sisters. As a child, he listened to jazz, classical music, pop and was introduced to the piano that is with him to this day. He started covering famous English pop songs on his piano and started posting them on YouTube as a teenager.
Shinunoga E-Wa and Fujii Waze’s other tracks
Shinunoga E-Wa really got the spotlight after Min Yoongi, also known as Suga or AgustD, the rapper from BTS, had a similar hairstyle and uploaded an image on his Instagram.
The hairstyle was similar to the album’s HURT NEVER HELP EVER cover photo, and the title track was Shinunoga E-Wa. The song talks about how dependent a person can become after falling in love, that the person forgets to eat and only wants his/her love to be there for him. It’s a desperate plea from Fujii to be with his love, because he’d rather die than be away from her/him/them.
Grace is a song that was shot in Faridabad, Haryana in November. The song talks about spirituality and finding peace in God. The song is really peaceful to listen to while on a walk on a sunshine filled day. His religion is a mix between Hinduism and Buddhism, as his dance moves include a lot of Indian-Ness in it.
Kirari is a fast-paced song that talks about self love and how our lives should be long despite any hardships that we may encounter.
Nan-Nan is another chirpy dystopian song that talks about comparing oneself to others and always talking bad things to ourselves, which we should avoid doing. Fujii wants to tell us that nobody notices the things we obsess over and to be kinder to ourselves.
