C-ute is the latest super group to disband

Japanese idol group "C-ute" is now no longer together as the group’s career has come to an end. As part of this historic event it is necessary to pay tribute to these girls. The studio album Cmaj9 is what got me into this group. The group has the very beautiful Chisato Okai who is my favorite member.

Information about the group's 9th and last studio album

Japanese girl group C-ute has now released their newest and last album called Cmaj9 at the end of 2015. It was scheduled for release on December 23, 2015. This is the group’s 9th studio album and it features participation by various guests. These guests are:

  • Takui Nakajima

The album has 19 songs and this list includes those produced by Tsunku (producer for Morning Musume 17). The album was released in three different editions. These are the regular edition, Limited Edition A with a DVD, and Limited Edition B with Blu-Ray. However, I will only be listing the track listing for the regular edition.

The group deserves a tribute because of the song called I Miss You

Why should there be a tribute to this group you might ask? This is because the song “I Miss You” stands out to me as my favorite song from the group for now and it is one of those very sad songs. It is a song about someone who is really seeking to find love as they have grown out their hair and matured as a human being. However, she has been fighting with her mother more often than in the past. She has gotten more guy friends and she does not even know the reason why. We refer to a situation like that as someone that has been put into the friend zone. I am not an expert on romance but this song is one of the most amazing songs in the history of pop music. Continuing on the subject of the song, this girl or woman as described in the lyrics knows that she is possessive and demanding. She admits that she is dishonest and this is one of the qualities that can destroy any romantic relationship. She is really missing her ex-boyfriend. But in order to win back the love of her life, she has to realize that honesty and being straightforward is the best approach. The song really makes me want to cry but this is a classic song about relationships.

C-ute travels to Mexico and expands their international fan base

The group C-ute was in Mexico for an overseas concert in September 2015. It was the third overseas concert for the group after Paris (July 2013) and Taipei, Taiwan (May 2014). This third concert was held to celebrate the group’s 10th anniversary. That’s an incredible accomplishment considering that AKB48 was also celebrating their 10th anniversary in 2015. I wondered whether the album would have been as good of a commercial success as AKB48's Tsugi no Ashiato but it did not work out that way but I can tell you that C-ute has great songs such as “I Miss You” and “The Middle Management” which should attract some new fans. The album as of this writing has sold 16, 563 copies.

The song called I Miss You performed LIVE in 2014

In spite of their disbandment C-ute delivers a powerful message

As of June 12, 2017, the group has held their last concert in Saitama and they have now disbanded. The group had a concert in Mexico City on April 13, 2017 and they had a concert on April 16th 2017 in Paris, France. Since the group has now disbanded, let us bring focus to one off their songs called The Future. This is a song about breaking free from the life that is keeping you trapped because of your lack of forgiveness. Even though you may be living a life now that is not to your liking, the problems that you may have now will be nothing to think about in the future. The song’s message of being honest and being true to ourselves is the best things that we can do. C-ute is the 4th Japanese pop musical group to end their activities in the last three years.

      Louise Powles: thank you for your thoughts on this article. The members of this group disbanded because they wanted to focus on other work within the entertainment industry. And it is quite difficult for many to make a living off of their music alone. That's why the music business is so glamorous.

      It's a shame that so many bands and singers seem to be giving it all up these days. I guess it's difficult these days to make a living from singing. Shame, as these look like they were good.
