“Irresistible and undeniably promising.” – Gorilla Vs Bear

“Japan, Man is adept at capturing the internal struggles we face.” – The Fader
Japan, Man might be the most exciting new musical discovery of 2020.
The Fifteen-year-old Beirut artist, aka Laetitia Acra, has been releasing music for less than a year but already she’s captured the attention of some of the coolest names in music. Today she continues to impress with the announcement that she’s joined the likes of Mallrat and Tkay Maidza at Dew Process, and with that news has released a brilliant single, Cautious.
Bursting with individuality, character and funk, Cautious is a flawless introduction to Japan, Man. Inspired by living consciously and in the moment, her music is both wise and skilled beyond her years.
The single is supported by a zany, animated video that recalls early Adult Swim cartoons, and was directed by London-based animator and illustrator, Lily Shaul.
Japan, Man’s homespun pop music represents her experiences living in war-torn Lebanon while growing up online. Curious and observant, she is fast growing a reputation for penning reflective and charismatic bops, each one catchier than the last.
She’s already received support from the likes of COLORS, The Fader, i-D, Billboard, Gorilla vs Bear & Refinery29, and all signs point towards limitless potential.
Keep all eyes on Japan, Man, with more amazing music in the not-too-distant future.
