Tokyo Lady

"Tokyo Lady" is a song by Japanese/Korean musician Iconiq, released as her debut single of August 11, 2010. The single was planned for a July 28 release, however was postponed, it is her last physical single. The song is an electro/rock-styled pop song, written by NaNa Music and Uta, the writers of "Crystal Girl" and "LoveShineMagic" from Iconiq's debut album Change Myself; the lyrics of the song continue on with the same themes as Iconiq's Change Myself songs do, speaking of new beginnings, bright futures and references to objects in everyday life. The scene in "Tokyo Lady" is of a woman after a break up of a relationship, who has begun the process of moving on; as she walks forward, "the world changes." References are made to the song's protagonist going to a social event, as she "paints the town" while wearing pink high heels, faces her favorite place while throwing hey car key into her bag. According to the official site's liner notes, the song is about the "dazzling determination of a woman starting to walk forward to her future," in a metropolitan Tokyo setting.

To Iconiq, the song represents the Tokyo aspects to her new start as a musician in Japan, considers it a message song to encourage women. The song was first unveiled at Iconiq's debut live, at Shibuya-AX on May 16, where it was performed and announced as her first single; the song was marketed as a "three tie-up single," with commercials for three companies airing simultaneously: Shiseido's Maquillage cosmetic range, Morinaga's Weider and Jelly sports drink/A-Nation 2010, Rechochoku. These began airing on July 21, 2010; the song was performed at A-Nation in early August, 2010, at which Iconiq had a special booth filled with promotional goods for purchase. This was the fourth successive time an Iconiq song has been used in commercials for both Shisedo and Recochoku, after "I'm Lovin' You," "Change Myself" and "Bye Now!." The Shiseido commercial, dubbed the Kyakkō no Tsuya-hen of the commercial at the Shisedo Maquillage website, featured Iconiq with a longer pixie cut hairstyle, as opposed to her regular "baby short cut" of her debut album.

The commercial for Weider and Jelly/A-Nation, showed Iconiq with her previous hairstyle. The single was promoted as a "one coin single," due to its price of 500 yen, it was marketed for having three differently designed back covers, that featured a different, wider-angled view of Iconiq from the photoshoot for the single's cover. During single promotions, special billboards were placed at several major Tokyo train stations, on which pairs of fishnet stockings were affixed for the general public to take. Iconiq performed this song as a per of her set at the 2010 A-Nation concerts; the music video was directed by Diane Martel, filmed in Los Angeles along with the two other music videos for songs on Light Ahead, "Light Ahead" and "Kiss & Cry." The video depicts Iconiq posing in a range of fashion-oriented outfits, against a background of colorful geometric shapes and pop art inspired designs with static shots of Iconiq repeated on the screen in multiple places

Route 52; the route travels in a south-north direction, beginning in Mount Pleasant and ending at the North Carolina state line just north of Lake View, where it continues as North Carolina Highway 41 towards Lumberton. The route is rural, though it serves as an important arterial in suburban Mount Pleasant and passes through several small towns on its route northwards, it provides several key river and swamp crossings in the Pee Dee region. The Wando River Bridge, a through truss swing bridge built in 1939, is to be replaced by 2020-2021; the new bridge will be four-lane with median, will be a fixed span bridge, tall enough for tall ships to pass. At a planned cost of $42.3 million, construction began in mid-2015. Established between 1993-1996, it replaced mainline SC 41 through downtown Andrews; this is second business loop through Andrew, following the same route from 1960-63 until 1970.
