Japanese hip-hop duo HALCALI appeared on Music Fair last week along with SPEED, Perfume, and Lil’B, where they performed “Long Kiss Good Bye”, the seventh ending theme to Naruto Shippuuden. While I’m sure Naruto fans will have a more immediate attachment to the song, it sounds really good on its own due to the nice mix of Jpop and hip-hop. Despite not being a huge fan of rap, I find female asian hip-hop artists quite refreshing to listen to, especially with HALCALI’s style of music. Case in point, I’ve listened to this song to death already, but am not sick of it in the slightest yet. Prior to Music Fair, HALCALI also appeared on Girl Pop Factory, but has since added some simple choreography to their performance as seen above. If you’re interested in checking out the PV as well, I’ve uploaded a copy of it here. In any case, enjoy the video(s).
