Singer Da’Ville currently has the number one download single in Japan, according to download site Reggae Zion. Ichiban, the title track from Da’Ville’s forthcoming album, has occupied the number one position since it was released on December 12 last year. Ichiban features Japanese reggae group Fireball.
Da’Ville recently returned to the island following a major promotional blitz in Japan, to jump start interest in the February release of the Ichiban album for Avex.
While in Japan, Da’Ville received an endorsement from Nike, which saw him being clothed by the popular brand for the duration of his stay in Japan.
Da’Ville performed at the Sabishinbo night which was held at Club Ageha on Christmas Eve, which saw more than 7000 patrons in attendance. Patrons were treated to songs from Da’Ville’s repertoire including Always on My Mind, Cant Get Over You, In Heaven and his latest single Missing You Right Now.
The following night Da’Ville headed to Nagoya where he performed at Plus Park Club.
Missing You Right Now, which is currently enjoying steady rotation on the local airwaves, is already made its way onto several local music charts including Richie B’s Hit List and the RETV Reggae chart.
