My first introduction to Suzuki Airi.
Done in the style of a homemade video, I had no idea who she was; I just knew it was a happy song at a time when things looked bleak. The COVID pandemic set the new regulations, social distancing & mask-wearing. Followed by weeklong closures and eventually a layoff in my factory.
This was like a breath of fresh air!
Some of my favorite videos.
Cute, funny. and sweet!
Then , out of seemingly nowhere, that twisted breakdown @ 2:24 !!!
One of her monster hits as a solo artist from Spring 2018.
A rare cases where the dance version is bigger than the official video!
The truth of the matter is. Some of my favorite videos of Suzuki Airi are personal, you know, the ones that are live & in the moment, Unscripted.
Like the video clip of when she heard her father had won a golf tournament, Or backstage as she congratulated Ai Takahashi at her graduation concert, as well as when she congratulated Tomoko Kanazawa at her recent graduation. Those videos are on YouTube. And dedicated fans can find them easily, I'm sure; I found them. But before I was concerned about any of that. These videos below got me hooked on. This delightful young performer, and were on a high- rotation on my TV!
My all time favorite!
We all have that one favorite song, the one that rises above all the rest, the first song that we think of when we hear a singer or band's name!
for me, this is Airi's greatest hit!
