Japanese girl group FAKY has been a group on the rise since their EP “Candy” went viral on YouTube last year.
Hitting #1 on iTunes J-POP Album chart, #3 on the overall chart and more than 4.5 million views of the music video on, FAKY has been a group that’s been on J-Pop lover’s radar.
FAKY is signed to Japan’s famous music label rhythm zone, home to top artists like m-flo, EXILE, and Kumi Koda, and has performed at major music festivals like SUMMER SONIC 2016, a-nation stadium fes., and POPSPRING while also being nominated for MTV’s VMAJ 2016 BEST NEW ARTIST VIDEO.
This March, FAKY released their latest single “Surrender” which made it all the way to #7 on Spotify’s US Viral Top 50 on April 21st, an incredibly rare accomplishment for a Japanese artist. It also ranked in at #34 on the Global Top 50 chart with more than 15,000 listeners in this month alone.
FAKY’s “Surrender” is a dance track with a dark, heavy feel that was released worldwide on March 1st. After just a month and a half “Surrender” cracked the top 10 on Spotify’s US Viral Top 50, rubbing elbows with Kendrick Lamar and other international superstars. Since entering Spotify’s US Viral Top 50 on April 15th, the track moved up the chart daily, eventually hitting its current spot at #7. Thanks to that, the track also ranked in at #34 on the Global Top 50, gaining the attention of music fans around the world. Unlike the majority of J-POP idols and bands who are known for their KAWAII (cute) factor overseas, FAKY aims to break new ground as a Japanese dance and vocal group that can hold their own among the other high level acts in the world music scene.
FAKY is about to release their major debut album on June 14th.
