SoulJaの最新作で、河北麻友子がアーティストとしてデビュー!

SoulJaがロックバンドBACK-ONのボーカル&ギター、KenJi03とコラボレーションした楽曲「雨のち晴れ」に、女優でViVi専属モデルの河北麻友子がボーカルとして参加することが明らかになった。河北が歌うのは初めてのことだ。

今作は、フジテレビの人気番組「テラスハウス」出演中のてっちゃんこと菅谷哲也にインスパイアされてSoulJaが制作した楽曲。夢を叶えるためにガムシャラに進んでいく人を後押しするような応援ソングになっており、SoulJaとKenJi03が、男性ならではの根性論と"悔しさを乗り越えて夢を掴め"という強いメッセージを込めた歌詞を歌っている。


既にSoulJaとKenJi03が歌ったVersionは、レコチョクほかサイトにて配信されているのだが、楽曲を発表した後にSoulJaが、「2人で歌った楽曲は力強い楽曲に仕上がったけれど、それだけでは泥臭いというか、モノクロというか...、曲の中の挫折から這い上がろうとする主人公は表現できているけれど、その先の希望の光が足りない」と感じ、さらにその主人公の道しるべを照らす天使的な存在が必要だと思ったことから、女性ボーカルを加えたVersionを新たに制作することとなった。
SoulJaが河北麻友子に参加を依頼したのは、"Angel"というピュアな存在を、まだ色づけされていない新人ボーカルに歌って欲しかったという理由に加え、曲の世界観であるモノクロの中で光を表現してくれるような豊かな表現ができる人物を探す中で、モデルとしても女優としても活躍している河北であれば適役だろうと感じたことがきっかけとなっている。今作のミュージック・ビデオで、Angel的な立ち位置で主人公の男性を擁護し、力を与える河北の熱演っぷりにも注目しよう。なお、SoulJaは河北の印象を、「初めて歌を聴いた時に、声量に驚いた。あの細い体からあんなPowerful Voiceがって、思った。アメリカ育ちってこともあって、英語でディレクションができたので、より細かいニュアンスを伝えることができて、そしてそれに答えてもらってすごく満足してます」とコメントしている。

「雨のち晴れ」の着うた(R)・着うたフル(R)・ビデオフル・着ムービーは、7月17日(水)より配信スタート。CDは7月24日(水)に発売される。

日本のヒップホップミュージシャンであるSoulJaは、青山テルマとの共作シングル「ここにいるよ feat.青山テルマ」のデジタルダウンロード数が200万を超え、着うた(R)ブームの火付け役となった。また、青山テルマによるアンサーソング「そばにいるね feat.SoulJa」は"日本で最も売れた着うたフル(R)楽曲"としてギネスブックに認定されている。近年ではDA PUMPのISSAとのユニットに、人気タレントであるローラを迎えた"ISSA×SoulJa+ROLA"で楽曲をリリースしたり、今年2月にはグラビアアイドルの壇蜜とのコラボレーション・シングルをリリースしたりと、多くの話題を呼んでいる。今作「雨のち晴れ」でのコラボレーションも楽しみである。
