D-Unit is a girl band formed in 2012. They first started with 3 members as D-Unit is a bit special. It’s supposed to add a new member or replace one at every release which is a bit unique. I am not quite sure about this idea as the members might have fans who would be disappointed if they leave after a while. So we will see how it is going turn out. Anyway, the current members make of D-Unit a talented group and the add of a fourth member is certainly giving more credits to the band. Their debut was a bit poor in promotion, even though their songs were already great. Now with their new release, we hope they will get more attention. We can clearly feel the influence of 2NE1 in their songs and their atmosphere, but they have still something different. They are giving an image of tough girls and it’s something we like a lot about them. It’s also making a huge difference from the other girl bands that we all know. They have everything to be successful and we wish that for them!
As for the members, the leader and oldest is RAM, she is also the main rapper and lead vocalist. Yes, it is how talented she is, she can sing very well and even rap! She has a cute voice but also powerful. Her look is the most original though, she has a cute face but with a tough girl attitude, a bit masculine as well. It’s clearly original and it suits her very well. Next we have Ujin who is the lead rapper, main dancer and vocalist of the band. She is really pretty actually with a lot of charisma. She is also very talented as she can sing very well and rap of course! The main vocalist is Zin, she seems to be very tall when you see her next to the others! She has a great voice and a good presence on stage. The last member who joined in 2013 is Janey. She is a rapper. She clearly have talent when it comes to rap and as she is very young, she is very cute, even though she is trying to act tough.
They released their first album in august 2012 „Welcome to Business“. They directly did a full length album showing their motivation and talent. After that, they released three digital singles „Luv me“, „sleepin in“ and „Stay alive“. Finally in March 2013, they came back with a new album „Affirmative Chapter 1“ produced by Zico. We can clearly state that he did a good job and we hope it’s going to help them to reach the success they deserve.
We advise you to check their music videos that you can find after this presentation and please give them your support! As for Japako Music, we will certainly keep an eye on them and will keep you updated with their music.
Update: D-Unit is now a two members girl band as 2 members has left, Zin and Ram are the members who stayed, other members might join them in the future.
