Japanese boy dance-pop group Exile exist at the heart of a scene of interconnected bands and performers, many of whom are counted among the ten members or ex-members of Exile. This loose collective of musicians, singers, and dancers are called Exiles, and in 2004 they released their only album together, Heart of Gold. The songs on Heart of Gold were all by performers who existed under the umbrella of Exiles, including Exile themselves as well as Rather Unique, a jokey hip-hop crew containing Maki Daisuke and Usami Yoshihiroe, two of Exile's dancers, as well as Kurosawa Ryouhei, who later went on to join Exile in 2006; Kiyokiba Shunsuke, who had been a vocalist in Exile before becoming a solo singer; R&B group Color, whose singer, Takahiro Tasaki, also joined Exile in 2006; and Never Land, another hip-hop group who were later featured on the song "Won't Be Long" from the 2007 album Exile Evolution. ~ Jody MacgregorPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
