The digital release of “Hana”, the theme song written for the Fuji Television drama series “Ichiban Sukina Hana”, which aired on October 12th at 10:00 p.m., dropped after the first episode.
This is the latest song by Kaze Fujii, produced by A.G Cook, who has also produced songs for Beyonce and Charli XCX. The previous track “Workin’ Hard” was produced in Los Angeles with Dahi, who worked with Kendrick Lamar and SZA, as sound producer. It was a new and innovative number that brought hip-hop beats to the forefront. This new release follows the first single of 2023, which was produced with the awareness that it was his third debut song.
On making the song, Kaze shared to his fans, “I felt that the main characters in this story were searching for answers to many questions in their lives. I think there are many people who can identify themselves with characters, and thought I would join them in their search for answers. Then I feel that I was led to the most straightforward and pure song I have ever written. I am truly grateful for this precious opportunity. Very much looking forward to seeing what kind of story awaits them and what they will find, both as a viewer and secretly as a friend.”
About Fujii Kaze
Fujii Kaze is a rising singer songwriter from Japan. He started practicing classical piano when he was little after being influenced by his father. Since he was 12, Kaze uploaded piano covers of popular songs on YouTube, which eventually caught the music industry’s attention and led him to make a label deal.
In May 2020, Kaze released his first album “HELP EVER HURT NEVER” with a message not to hurt anyone but just help, while the world was right in the middle of the pandemic. It reached No. 1 on Billboard Japan’s Hot Album chart and got numerous prestigious awards in Japan. He was selected as YouTube Japan’s first Artist On The Rise and picked for Spotify’s global program, RADAR.
In September 2021, he hosted an aspirational event titled Fujii Kaze “Free” Live 2021 at NISSAN stadium. Hoping to free up people’s minds through his music, Kaze performed just by himself only with a grand piano at the 70,000-capacity stadium without any audience due to Japan’s state of emergency in response to the spread of COVID-19. It was livestreamed globally on YouTube and reached over 179,000 peak concurrent views. The event ended up becoming the world’s No. 1 trending topic on Twitter.
In March 2022, Kaze released his second album “LOVE ALL SERVE ALL”. The title is a phrase that he cherishes, which also aligns with the title of his first album. Again, the album reached No. 1 on Billboard Japan’s Hot Album chart and got numerous prestigious awards.
In July 2022, “Shinunoga E-Wa” from his first album went viral in Thailand.

In October 2022, he held a stadium show “LOVE ALL SERVE ALL STADIUM LIVE” at Panasonic Stadium Suita in Osaka, this time in front of a live audience and completely sold out at 70,000-capacity. The show is now available on Netflix globally. From June to July 2023, he held his first 7-city, 11-show tour of Asia, with all shows sold out.
