BENI - READY25
READY25 is a song by BENI & it was released digitally on 12th July .
This's the 2nd no. that BENI released digitally this month & the 1st 1 was Chasin' Feat IO that was released on 6th July .
READY25 was chosen to be used as a cheer relay song for the Yokohama DeNA Baystars baseball team .
Tsutsugo Yoshitomo who plays for the Yokohama DeNA Baystars baseball team befriended BENI last year via a mutual acquaintance & Tsutsugo is the 1 that requested BENI to write a song for the baseball team he plays for .
Surprisingly on 1st listen , READY25 doesn't have the music traits of a sports driven theme song . Instead it has quite a strong Caribbean flair which I thought it's more appropriate to be used as a Summer song instead .
Also same with Chasin' , I find that READy25 gets quite repetitive after a while & the fact that the same people worked on both songs , that's no coincidence .
Overall both Chasin' & READy25 are ok but to me they're not BENI's best as she has other great songs in her discography but given a choice , I would not recommend them to a 1st timer who's not familiar with her music .
I can only hope that BENI's future new material will be better .
