About Suda Keina
Together with the music label Warner Music Japan—unBORDE, on January 24, 2020, Suda Keina released “Haru Donari,” the main theme song for the TV drama “ALIVE—A Cancerologist’s Medical Record” (アライブ—がん専門医のカルテ) which is to air on FujiTV from January to March 2020. First debuted under the name “Balloon,” Suda Keina began his music career as a Vocaloid Producer on the distributing platform Nico Nico Douga. In addition to his own cover version, “Sharuru”—one of Suda’s most popular work—reached over 70 million views on YouTube and took the first place on JOYSOUND’s 2017 Released Songs Overall Ranking board. Not stopping there, “Sharuru” took first place on the 2017, 2018, and 2019 Karaoke Ranking board for the Teenage Division. For the younger generations, “Sharuru” is said to be one of the most symbolic hit songs of the age.
In October 2017, the artist changed his name to “Suda Keina” in the hope of bringing his songs to audiences using his own voice. In January 2019, the artist released his first EP “teeter” under the music label Warner Music Japan—unBORDE.
In August 2019, Suda Keina released “porte,” the artist’s second EP, which landed him in the TOP 5 on Oricon Weekly Album Ranking. This new release, whose songs, lyrics, and arrangements are written by Suda himself, carry with it an unexpected and astonishing toxicity and audacity. The careful fusion of selected sounds with brilliant sensations beautifully encapsulates the lyrics and melodies that captures the listener’s attention. After its release, the EP has received significant support from listeners in younger generations.
Organized by the entertainment service uP!!!, a service launched through the joint effort of KDDI and PIA, the invitation-only uP!!!NEXT is a live event whose main purpose is to connect the music world’s pioneering artists with trend-sensitive users. At present, the event has been organized 17 different times. uP!!!NEXT with Suda Keina is the event’s 18th step toward fulfilling its mission.
