Kis-My-Ft2 - LOVE
CD + DVD A
CD + DVD B
LOVE is Kis-My-Ft2's 21st single & it was released last month on 11th July .
The group's new single was released about 3 months + since their joint 7th album Yummy!! + special single You & Me .
In this case , You & Me is not counted as Kis-My-Ft2's 21st single .
The theme of Kis-My-Ft2's new single is 'just love songs' . All songs in LOVE have a wide variety of music genres ie. EDM , Pop , R&B & ballad .
There're 2 group tracks in LOVE . The main A-side L.O.V.E. was used in the ads promoting topical itch cream Unacool starring Kis-My-Ft2 themselves .
The next group track , B-side Because I Love You also had a video made & it was chosen to be used in the ads of Daiichi Kosho Company's LIVE DAM STADIUM .
Because I Love You is described as a love song about an immature love that took place during one's elementary school days . In the video , the members portray the song's world view with their emotional expressions & movements .
Aside from this , the CD only version of LOVE includes 3 sub unit songs which's similar to what Kis-My-Ft2 undertook in their 17th single Sha la la☆Summer Time .
The 3 sub unit pairings & song titles are :
- ConneXion (Fujigaya Taisuke , Senga Kento & Yokoo Wataru)
- Hoshi ni Negai wo (Tamamori Yuta & Miyata Toshiya)
- Happy Birthday (Kitayama Hiromitsu & Nikaido Takashi)
Each of 3 unit songs were written to focus on different kinds of 'love' .
There's definitely no stopping Kis-My-Ft2 from delivering even more new material in 2018 & in comes their latest single offering LOVE .
Kis-My-Ft2 to me hasn't lost their touch when comes to their single releases yet & I actually enjoy LOVE considerably .
Between both group tracks , I like Because I Love You a lot & I'm real glad that Kis-My-Ft2 made a video for it as it deserves it . Not to say that L.O.V.E. ain't good but Because I Love You is more grown up & sad sounding while it's always nice to see Kis-My-Ft2 roller skate in their videos which's what they did in L.O.V.E. .
As for the latest 3 sub unit pairing songs , they're all not bad but I like Tamamori & Miyata's duet the most out of the 3 with Hoshi ni Negai wo being a nice ballad
The other 2 songs are ok + Kitayama & Nikaido's duet is the shortest track in Kis-My-Ft2's discography & Happy Birthday is not even 2 minutes which surprised me at 1st .
Overall , LOVE offers something for everyone to enjoy & this release is worth checking out .
