@JAM is just around the corner, and here to herald its arrival is the navigator unit R2K. The group features Kurusu Rin (26ji no Masquerade), Shiokawa Rise (Tenkou Shoujo*), and Shiraoka Kyoka (Tash Have Fun) singing the characteristic upbeat theme to the event. “Koisuru Skirt (恋するスカート)” features the trio in a live performance as well as off shot camera from recording and photographic sessions. R2K follows in the tradition of last year’s MEY, 2017’s Sakura no Yume, and 2016’s NAH. R2K is decidedly less edgy than last year’s offering from @JAM, marking a little bit of a return to more traditional idol fare. @JAM EXPO 2019 is set for August 24-25, 2019, and you can read all the details at the official site. Trust me, all of your favorites will be there!
