My brother recently introduced me to Leah Dizon, a import car model and gravure idol who debuted on the Japanese music scene last month with her first single “Softly”. She had a pretty strong debut and stayed at the Oricon Top 20 charts for several weeks. Obviously (considering her career in the past), her physical beauty is to be expected, but she has a surprisingly sweet singing voice. Even though “Softly” is typical J-pop fare, she has promise and will be one to watch in the future. Unknown to me, she already has a big (likely male) following because of her modeling career. All I know is, I would love to be that bear on her single cover.
