Color Change for Crystal Kay

leave a comment »

If Rain is aspiring to be this generations answer to Michael Jackson, then I would have to say that Crystal Kay has it locked down as MJ’s little sis Janet.

She sounds like her; she even looks a bit like her. Albeit a more sanitized, younger Blasian version. 

To keep the Janet comparison going  the 22 year old Crystal Kay was able to procure Jam and Lewis for her eighth album, Color Change.  For those of you who aren’t down with R&B history, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis helped to put Janet Jackson in the firmaments with her albums Control and Rhythm Nation.  They’ve also worked with other big names like Mariah Carey,  Rod Stewart and the Spice Girls.  During the first part of the early 90s it was hard to turn on the radio and not hear a song that wasn’t touched by Jam and Lewis.

Is it enough to get Crystal Kay on to the radio playlists here?  Nah, probably not.  But at least, unlike other stars from Asia, you can purchase her cd through Amazon.com instead of YesAsia.  But whichever way you go you are going to pay through the nose to get it.  Amazon is charging 60 bucks for her cd and YesAsia you can get it for 30. 

Here is Crystal Kay’s hit Itoshiihito which was produced by Jam and Lewis:
