CD Artist
修二と彰
Track Titles
  1. 青春アミーゴ
  2. カラフル

The single is a collaboration between "亀梨和也" (Kamenashi Kazuya) from the boyband KAT-TUN and "山下智久" (Yamashita Tomohisa) from the boyband NEWS.

"修二と彰" means "修二 & 彰"

  • Track 1 is the main song, and is the theme song for the show "野ブタ。をプロデュース" where 亀梨和也 plays the character 修二 (Shuuji) and 山下智久 plays the character 彰 (Akira).

To make it more fun, tracks 2 and 3 are solo songs:

  • Track 2 is by 山下智久 and is from the show ドラゴン桜, while
  • Track 3 is by 亀梨和也 and for the show ごくせん.

Issues would be:

  • whether or not to add the collaboration artist or stick it under one half of the name.
  • if adding the collaboration artist, do you stick collaboration ARs direct to their real names or do you add those ARs to the 修二 and 彰 character names with further "performs as" ARs to their real names.
  • clearly indicating that while the single is released and credited under the double name collaboration 2 of the 3 songs aren't - in other words, make it clear that while the release artist of the whole single is 修二と彰 the track artists are 修二と彰, 山下智久, and 亀梨和也 respectively.
