Hey ! Say ! JUMP - White Love
CD + DVD A
CD + DVD B
White Love is Hey ! Say ! JUMP's 21st single & it was released last month on 20th Dec .
Hey ! Say ! JUMP's 1st best album Hey! Say! JUMP 2007-2017 I/O was released last July .
White Love was used to promote the movie Miseinen Dakedo Kodomo Janai that member Chinen Yuri starred in which opened in Japan cinemas last month on 23rd Dec .
A song about forever love sung by Hey ! Say ! JUMP for Christmas in their 10th year , they bring fans a 4 minute long love story about the beginning of love which brings colour to a white world like magic .
The uptempo A-side is described as Hey ! Say ! JUMP's most loveable love song .
A total of 5 B-sides are available in White Love as follows :
- Good Life (CD Only Track)
- Spark×2 (CD Only Track)
- Usual Soldier (CD Only Track)
- Hoshi no Furu Yoru ni (CD + DVD A Track)
- Rock U Baby ! (CD + DVD B Track)
Hey ! Say ! JUMP no doubt had a successful great run in celebrating their 10th anniversary last year & White Love was a good release to conclude their celebratory milestone .
I don't know why it took Hey ! Say ! JUMP so long to finally release a Winter theme single but it was worth the wait . I was surprised how grown up sounding White Love is and the accompanied music video also surprised me . While it's not as festive driven as what I was hoping for , I like the overall concept .
Likewise , the B-sides are pretty good and each of them are quite memorable in their own respective right . Out of the songs , I like Hoshi no Furu Yoru ni the most as it could have been released alongside White Love as a double Winter theme A-side single .
Good Life has an upbeat Latin flair while Sparkx2 is a typical sounding upbeat song . Usual Soldier has an interesting harmonica driven sound while Rock U Baby ! is a downright aggressive track .
2017 is 1 of the rare times that I enjoyed most of the new material that Hey ! Say ! JUMP released and hopefully that will continue on this year .
That said , Hey ! Say ! JUMP's 22nd single Mae wo Muke will be released next month on 14th Feb & I cannot wait to see how their new single will sound like .
