Namie Amuro Wants You to Touch Her in Latest Music Video


Move over, Taylor Swift. Namie Amuro is back with a new hit single and a fourth-wall-breaking music video to boot. At 37 and boasting a vast repertoire of 43 singles and 11 albums, the Queen of J-Pop is showing no signs of aging.

In the music video for her latest pop anthem "Golden Touch", off her twelfth album _genic which is releasing on June 10, your finger can meet hers with the help of your computer or smartphone screen. The video is best viewed fullscreen.

I "touched" Namie Amuro's finger

The innovative video creates an illusion that you are interacting with it by centering the movement of objects and props around the center of each shot of the video. The interactions which you can initiate with the video are really astonishing.

You can pop someone's bubblegum,

have a bird perch on your finger,

peek into some weird animals in a room (why would you)

and even play Space Invaders with your fingers!

You've got the Golden Touch!

The Japanese Madonna's third bilingual album pops on June 10, almost 2 years since her previous album, Feel. All the songs planned for _genic are completely new and original tracks featuring classical dance beats and R&B grooves, bringing back the 80's and 90's sounds.

The album will feature songs produced by German/Russian DJ Zedd, who collaborated with her on last year's EDM anthem Heaven, French leading dance music DJ David Guetta (on What I Did For Love), American DJ Diplo and up-and-rising UK music producer SOPHIE (on B Who I Want 2 B feat. U hum sneak it).
