Cheeky Parade (チィキィ パレード?) is a Japanese girl group.[1]

History[edit]

Formed in 2012, Cheeky Parade is one of Japan’s rising girl idol groups. Their unique style fuses Japanese Idol music with the seemingly limitless energy of the 9 girls that make up Cheeky Parade. The group’s name fittingly represents both the girl’s saucy attitude and the parade-like excitement they generate. Cheeky Parade is on the Avex idol label, “iDOL Street”, and debuted with their 1st single “BUNBUN NINE9’” in January 2013. Their 1st single ranked in at #4 on the Oricon weekly chart, and their 2nd single and 3rd singles, “C.P.U !?” and “Mugendai Shoujo” also made the top five, ranking in at #5 and #4 respectively. Cheeky Parade made history as the first Japanese act to ever perform at the CBGB Music & Film Festival.[2]
