J-Pop: E-girls

E-girls, which stands for Exile Girls, is an all female Japanese girl group formed by the agency LDH and signed on the music label rhythm zone. Their genre is J-pop and electronic dance-music, and they have been active since April 24th 2011. There are too many members to individually go through all of them, but almost all girls are from diverse pop-groups such as Dream, Happiness, Flower and EGD (stands for EXPG Girls Dancer). Members have come and gone, but as of 2017, there consists of 11 members; SAYAKA, Kaede, Fujii Karen, YURINO, Suda Anna, Washio Reina, Bando Nozomi, Sato Harumi, Ishii Anna, Yamaguchi Nonoka and Takebe Yuzuna.

Created as a sister act to the boy band EXILE, E-girls debuted in 2011 with their single "Celebration". Following their formation, E-girls consisted of 21 members. On 28 December 2011, the group premiered Celebration, which peaked inside the Top 10 on the Oricon Singles Chart, the Japanese music industry standard singles popularity chart.

After a string of promotional recordings, E-girls released their debut record Lesson 1 two years later. The following year, they released their second single "One Two Three" in April, which performed moderately on the charts than their former recording. By the time they prepared to release their third single, the total number of members got up to whole 31 people. Like I said though, this number decreased throughout the years, with now the remaining 11 girls still keeping the group alive. They have 5 studio albums, over 20 singles, they´ve been on 3 tours and even have a photobook called "Colourful Diary".

To be brutally honest, I actually do not really like this collective group. It is simply just not my cup of tea when it comes to their music and videos. I think it lacks creativity and it is very cliché. But that is my opinion; maybe you, the readers, think differently. Give E-girls a try and share your opinions!
