CHAI are a Japanese rock band from Nagoya. The group consists of four women—Mana, Kana, Yuuki and Yuna. Formed in 2012, the band released their debut studio album Pink in 2017. “PING PONG!” is off of their latest album, WINK. About this new album Mana says, they worked on cultivating an album she described as “more than a human friend — someone you can go to when you’re upset, someone you go to when you’re happy, when you wake up first thing in the morning, when you want to cry.” And that’s why they’re in this week’s HOT SPOT!
