Former AKB48 member, Tomomi Itano released the short version of her upcoming single "COME PARTY!" yesterday and while it is only a minute and a half-ish long, there is lots to see! This girl and her friends sure know how to party! Want to start dancing in the dressing room? Got you covered! Random chair off to the side? Don't worry Tomomi, you're friends will make sure that chair gets what's coming to it! Caution tape? Means nothing! Nerf sniper off in the wings? We have bodyguards willing to sacrifice their lives for you Tomomi! Oh no, Tomomi, there's a swamp monster coming right for you! Don't worry, your chair-kicking friends have your back! Wow, that's a lot of obstacles just to dance and party now isn't it? What a dangerous life you lead Tomomi! Hats off to you!
When it's time to dance on the floor (With people I'm sure are famous in one way or another regardless if I recognize them or not.) Tomomi is packing in the costume changes! White dress and fur coat only worn in the dressing room? Check. Simple black dress? Check. Sequined American-flag outfit? Check! Black and white jester outfit complete with ceiling swing? Check and double check! This is a short version and rarely do I bother covering these or actually want to see the full version based on these teases, but this case is different. This left me seriously wanting to see the final product-now! If this is just the first third of the video, what does the rest have in store? Also, I need some questions answered. Why was Tomomi carrying drinks to the party anyway? And most importantly, what did that chair do to anyone? I'll probably not get answers to those questions even when the full version is release, but I can ask right? Anyhow, I suggest you watch this yourselves and get excited for the single that drops December 17th!
Tomomi Itano first joined AKB48 in 2005 as part of Team A. She went onto a very popular career within AKB48 complete with team changes and solo works and even two appearances with AKB48 in the US. Her first solo single "Dear J" was released in 2011 while she was still a member of AKB and sold over 200,000 copies coming in at #2 on the Oricon charts. In 2012, Tomomi earned the title of "TV Commercial Queen" as her endorsement contracts were the most of any female tarento in Japan. She graduated from AKB48 on August 25th 2013, her last single being the mega-hit "Koisuru Fortune Cookie". She released her first album "SxWxAxG" in July 2014 and that same month saw her first solo live in the US at San Francisco's JPop Summit. "COME PARTY!" will be her sixth solo single.
