A Good Collabo?!

Jin Akanishi to collaborate with Jason Derulo for first U.S. single (Tokyograph)

I don’t know how I feel about this. I’m happy that, you know, they’ve chosen a fairly popular person (or so I’m told. I have no idea who Jason Derulo is, but I was told he won American Idol. That show is still on?) to help Jin with his first U.S. single. So I assume they’re not going the western route, which is typically an album first, and then singles FROM the album. I wonder how well that will carry out. I wonder how well his US career will carry out. I’m kinda of the mind of… If Utada couldn’t do it successfully, then how can Jin? His English is NOWHERE near as amazing as Utada’s….
