# 1 This Week – – – G L A Y
Another # 1 single for GLAY. The four man J Rock phenomena has over forty hit singles since 1994.
Teru, Takuro, Hisashi, and Jiro release another major hit with “I am xxx.”
Officially, the name “Glay” is a deliberate misspelling of the word “gray” and represents the style of music they play: a mixture between rock (black) and pop (white) However, it is thought by many English-speaking fans that the misspelling of the band’s name may actually have been due to a genuine error. The Japanese language does not distinguish between the retroflex (“r”) and lateral (“l”) phonemes of the liquid morpheme.
