Namie Amuro’s (aka Japan’s “Queen of Hip-Pop”) first single release of the year, “Baby Don’t Cry” (January 24, 2007), is doing quite well in the Oricon singles chart having peaked at the #3 spot. With a great start for 2007 what’s next for the singer? Marriage? Another child? Maybe. But for now, we know for sure that she has a new single coming out soon called “FUNKY TOWN” with a street date of 4/4/07. The single is still a little more than a month from release but we can expect that it’ll be a Hip-Hip/R&B funky number and will be produced by T.Kura, L.L.Brothers and michiko. Two versions will be available when it hits in April: CD+DVD (AVCD-31215B) and CD-only (AVCD-31216).
