Jero is a black male enka singer. He released his new single Serenade whose music was written by Tamaki Koji, on February 20. 2013 and the song could let us know his hidden charm as an enka singer.

Recently, Tamaki Koji has been so active that we have often found him on Japanese media. They might have underestimated his musicianship. But Tamaki Koji has a lively musicianship and his songs are well-done. You know it when you listen to Serenade written by him and sung by Jero.


The music was composed by Tamaki Koji and the words were written by Sudo Akira who had produced Ozaki Yutaka once and has produced Tamaki Koji. In Tamaki’s representative song Den-en, for instance, you can get Sudo as a lyricist.

You would notice it is Tamaki Koji's song after listening to Serenade just once. Don't know what makes so. Anyway, his unique touch comes up to the fore. Jero sings having the character his own. It could be said as his hidden charm.

It is important on being a pop tune, that song has the great hook. The hook is greasy in a good sense. Quiet correctly and deeply, the song shows taste which fits Japanese enka rightly.

Even if you are not interested in Jero and Japanese enka, you will easily hear this song.

Serenade is a love song that makes you have a single crazy night. In 2013, your night would slightly be special with hearing Serenade by a great combination Tamaki Koji and Jero.
