Arashi, which means “storm” in Japanese has been around since 1999, but since the mid-2000s, the five-member boy band has gained traction around the world. The group has quite literally taken the J-pop scene by storm. The boy band is beloved in Japan. Satoshi OhnoSho SakuraiMasaki AibaKazunari Ninomiya, and Jun Matsumoto make up the group and got their start in Hawaii.

Now with their newest single “Whenever You Call” blowing up since its release, and brand a brand new single dropping the same day, Arashi is catching up with us for a special RADIO.COM LIVE Check In on Friday, October 30th at 8:30PM ET/ 5:30 PM PT. You can catch the full interview right here or watch on RADIO.COM's Facebook and Twitter.

With eight studio albums under their belt, we will find out what we can expect from their upcoming single, Party Starters, dropping on Friday, October 30.

In 2007, when the band dropped their eighteenth single, “Love so Sweet” that’s when Arashi began to experience major commercial success and a stan following.

Now with K-Pop, J-Pop, and even P-Pop being a highly sought after genre of music, Arashi can really let their music speak for itself.


Last year the band launched all their music across social media platforms such as YouTube and TikTok in order to reach a younger, and international fan base with a heavy “stan” mentality.

After releasing the documentary, Arashi’s Diary, on Netflix in 2019, the band announced they'd be taking a hiatus, to begin this coming December. However, before the hiatus begins, Arashi is still giving us new music and celebrating 20 years of being a prominent J-Pop boy band.

Their most recent single “Whenever You Call” came out of the band’s reboot and a collaboration with Bruno Mars. The single which dropped in September, garnered a whopping 10 million views on Youtube.

Do not miss Arashi this Friday at 8:30 PM ET/ 5:30 PM PT, only with RADIO.COM.
