OMG!! It's not available on iTunes Brasil :( And I can't listen to the preview because of my Apple Music account. Oh Lord

Uknow! 29th September 2016 04:46 PM

I WANT IT! The preview sounds really good!

andycruize 29th September 2016 04:53 PM

Yup, this song reallyyyyyyy good.

AyuGAME 29th September 2016 04:54 PM

OMG! Downloading! Really fast leaked!

OMG WHAT IS THAT? THE INTRO? ARE WE IN THE WORLD OF TALES OF DESTINY!

I REALLY LOVE THE VERSE PART! I think the verse part is so strong!

The INTERLUDE..wow...I really love the orchestral and the beat combine together

the song is PURE JPOP! THIS IS JPOP on your face...

attractive nausea 29th September 2016 04:55 PM

The song is so epic! Omg i'm in love ♥

+1 since tales of destiny is the first and my favorite game, I fall in love with this song.

pedronekoi 29th September 2016 04:58 PM

I love the song <3 It's everything I was expecting! Really Game of Throne-esque lol But I don't think that 1min intro was necessary hahah

Uknow! 29th September 2016 04:59 PM

This song is fucking epic!

koumori 29th September 2016 04:59 PM

Thank you for the download link :)
The long intro is pretty nice, actually. It's very Ayu but still fitting the theme of the game... like Rule meets a weaker Mirrorcle World, meets glamour rock? :laugh

AyUmIXx 29th September 2016 05:00 PM

wow We are the queens is really awesome!
everything sounds so perfect!

pedronekoi 29th September 2016 05:01 PM

I take back what I've said. I'm loving the intro now LOL

I keep going back to AHS every few hours lately in the hope that the song leaked early. Thank you!

Fantome who? lol

AyuGAME 29th September 2016 05:07 PM

I hope the song will take number one on weekly recochoku chart...it will be nice to see Ayu get number one single and Hikki get number one album

indigochild 29th September 2016 05:09 PM

now WAIT a minute :rubeyes This is actually pretty good!

Yoake 29th September 2016 05:10 PM

*Shivering* The song is just so amazing. The introduction is as epic as a lot of movie music made by John Williams and other big composers. The transition between the different themes is smooth and very well-done. The arrangement is very rich maybe one of her most diversified? The chorus is like a rallying cry to shout all together We are the Queens and that instrumental brigde!!! OMG!!
Eipc Ayu!!!

+1 i love both of them. For me Utada and ayu is the best singer-songwriter in Japan.

CeReSu 29th September 2016 05:15 PM

I uploaded it on my Ayu's fan page if needed :)

TeddyGrahams 29th September 2016 05:20 PM

It's quite good, I didn't expect a dance track in the verses after the intro and rocky chorus in the previews. It blew my expecations!

Wow, this song is really great! I love how it's so so so jpop. ♡♡♡

Anna.L 29th September 2016 05:22 PM

This is not what i was expect about this song

I love it

kaggy87 29th September 2016 05:22 PM

i love this song.. but will be there a MV?

Zeke. 29th September 2016 05:23 PM

Chorus isn't that great, but I love the whoa-whoas. Always my favorite parts when Ayu just sings like that (and la-la-laaas, etc.).

freedreamer 29th September 2016 05:23 PM

i think...i just lost it back there.

WHAT? WHATTTTTTT???????? WHAT WAS THAT AMAZING SOUND I JUST HEARD?!??

omgosh..i take it back, to actually put this on the same gimmick level as XOXO. LOL this is FAR MORE. I was blown away by the intro and then the verse was amazing?! That bridge is everything i wished. I just wanted something bad-a$$ with electric guitars like her old songs and this even has ORCHESTRA gosh *_*

Deep snow 29th September 2016 05:26 PM

The song is so pleasantly weird! It's like a lot of songs joined as one. I've been listening to it on repeat and it'll certainly become one of my favourites.

God oh God will this have a PV? It should. Like, holy shit it should. It should be great.

Surreal17 29th September 2016 05:27 PM

The song took me by surprise! I wasn't expecting this at all. Very rich arrangement and I love how many influences it has (rock, dance/techno, classical)

AyuGAME 29th September 2016 05:27 PM

The verse totally cool...I gave 10/10 for the song..is just so good..

never in million years that I thought that we are the queens will get that kind of verse and intro and interlude...

SayukiChoco 29th September 2016 05:31 PM

I'm not a fan of the chorus, I still think it sounds a little bit weird, but I love the verses and the "Woah Whoa"s.

Yes, that is my first feeling for this song.

This song is interesting, more instrumental and less vocals... truly enjoyable!

Katsuyuki012 29th September 2016 05:38 PM

I'M SO IN L♡VE WITH WE ARE THE QUEENS! I had a good feeling but didn't expect it to be that great!!! I JUST L♡VE IT!

O.O OMFG!!!! THIS SONG.... I JUST CANT..... IT'S SO AMAZING!

//ABEST 29th September 2016 05:45 PM

It's awesome. Something only ayu can do.

I'll do the romaji later when I can actually copy paste the lyrics. Because i need my dictionary.

BUT HERE IS THE KANJI lyrics

Machiko 29th September 2016 06:17 PM

It's so much better than I expected (and I liked what I was expecting)!! IT'S SO EPIC GO AYU SLAAAY

AyuCanada 29th September 2016 06:18 PM

Omg I am so suprised! It is so good!... I don't know to what I can compare it... it sounds like a mix of lot of stuff but... blended in such a unique way. Like a big, Startin+Summer Love+Progress+...Power Rangers... I love it !

xLuna&1LOVE 29th September 2016 06:24 PM

I am sure it will grow on me quickly, because I like what she did with the different styles.
It's just not that song I fall in love with the first time I am listening to it.

Tomoyo 29th September 2016 06:24 PM

i think i have listened to this song already like ten times at least

Aderianu 29th September 2016 06:26 PM

composer is Kazuhiro Hara

I thought I'd enjoy this song from previews but omg its like way better than I expected. I hope she sings it live soon.

I adore his work. He works well with Ayu. But that arranger.. Could it be Yuta? Its very Yuta imo. Very strong work.

Surreal17 29th September 2016 06:53 PM

The song is #27 on iTunes Japan! Hopefully it will climb soon.

Ruan Borges 29th September 2016 06:54 PM

WOW.. THAT`S JUST SO EPIC.

It's so Jpop and veeery ayu style <3

Now where's my PV ayumi? I need a PV for this, c'mon!

That's why it's so EPIC. <3

Tomoyo 29th September 2016 07:37 PM

There is a separate thread up now for the lyrics! Romaji and Kanji are included. We will have to wait for Tenshi no Hane to translate it for us!

AyuCanada 29th September 2016 07:41 PM

I am glad she stills work with Kazuhiro Hara, he is really talented (If he is a "He")

douggn 29th September 2016 07:58 PM

does itunes put ayumi's name with the composer for all her itunes songs or did she actually compose with him?
Mine says, Ayumi Hamasaki & Kazuhiro Hara as the composer
Its also up on the Australian itunes now :)

Uknow! 29th September 2016 08:05 PM

^ Because she did the lyrics. You can see here http://www.uta-net.com/song/215595/ that they are separated.

And ayumi hamasaki is for lyrics and CREA for music. I was confused too.

BlackSilence 29th September 2016 08:08 PM

It had potential..... i wish she skipped the damn EDM sound on this. Such a wasted opportunity, i saw that coming from the bits we already got. It's not bad, it sounds quite fresh and she sounds great, but the EDM takes down the epicness a good notch, the classical parts are amazing, though.... I'm not particularly digging this right now. DAMN IT AYU..

Though i find the quality a bit fishy of the rips we've got. So i guess i'll just wait for it to pop up on iTunes (if it will where i am) and get the song from there to see if it makes any difference in my opinion. Cuz the mixing to me sounds a bit flat...or whatever is going on.

njanjayrp 29th September 2016 08:18 PM

Seemingly the song hit #1 on iTunes in Taiwan. Could somebody confirm?

Surreal17 29th September 2016 08:26 PM

Omg!! Yes, its #1!!

iTunes:
Taiwan : #1
http://www.icharts.co.za/tw/music/topsongs
Japan : #18

Aderianu 29th September 2016 08:29 PM

song appeared at russian itunes, so seems europe can buy it too

BlackSilence 29th September 2016 08:42 PM

^it's still not on Lithuanian itunes, i guess it'll be up till tomorrows evening.

Aderianu 29th September 2016 08:55 PM

Maybe because of time difference

pedronekoi 29th September 2016 08:58 PM

Not available in Brazil as well.

Deibel 29th September 2016 09:11 PM

Okay, that intro was unexpected. Some parts sounds dated, somehow; like the background music from a 80s fighting videogame or something. Other parts are like a mixture of old songs, as some people already pointed out. I'm really sick of the "yeah yeah wow wows", it's in eeeeevery single song.. so uninspired! And overall, it's a pretty repetitive track.

..but yet, I've been listening to it since it came out. I guess it's like a guilty pleasure lol (like most of her latest songs, imo)

lastminute 29th September 2016 09:16 PM

HOLY SH*T I DID NOT EXPECT IT TO BE THIS AMAZING, I'M SPEECHLESS

Isicio 29th September 2016 09:34 PM

The edm part is like Ami Suzuki's Eventful xD I didn't expect this but I like it.

jbrat2219 29th September 2016 10:00 PM

Wow so many positive reviews!!! I can't wait to hear it when I get home!

Coelacanth 29th September 2016 10:02 PM

could someone be so kind as to upload the song to MEGA?

LEOyumi 29th September 2016 10:02 PM

she didn't need a 5 year hiatus to get #1

EndOfTheWorld 29th September 2016 10:40 PM

We are the queens was so much better than I thought it was going to be. I was expecting an okay song that was short and repetitive.
I actually like it more than some tracks on Made In Japan. I'd replace Survivor with We are the queens.:yes
I love the EPIC intro, wish they had stuck with that more. It would have been very badass for Ayu.:laugh
It slightly reminds me of Gackt's Last Moon album.:heart
Very happy with this song, I do hope it gets a physical release somehow. Either on the next album or a physical single release.

Refix 29th September 2016 10:53 PM

The classical intro kinda bit push over into the verse, not flowing naturally like Pray or Last Angel. And the edm part mostly sound bland like someone said that it was like pluck out from 80's game theme. Overall it's not so bad, might grew. Still didn't like that vocalizing part. Just saying

jbrat2219 29th September 2016 11:02 PM

I can see this being a fierce concert opener. I wouldn't say it's my new favorite, but I appreciate what she was trying to do with this song. I feel like it's one of those songs that would do better with a strong visual component so I hope if there is a PV it's fantastic.

stepYOU1234 29th September 2016 11:24 PM

Better than I was expecting. I sort of assumed it would be a rockier Beautiful Fighters but there's some really interesting things going on. Not an instant favourite but it's a strong release. It should be a really good concert opener.

chocopockymaster 29th September 2016 11:45 PM

y'all are trippin' -- this song is a damn mess

tokyoxjapanxfan 30th September 2016 12:47 AM

Thank you! That's exactly what I kept hearing but couldn't think of the name! Sounds so similar.


It's a fun song. I love the verses. Not something I'll listen to often though, I can sense that already haha.

Also...Thelma? In a top 10 ranking? In 2016? Wow.

truehappiness 30th September 2016 01:17 AM

This is definitely an Ayu-ish track. Kinda has a retro-Rule type feel initially.

truehappiness 30th September 2016 01:37 AM

The Thelma track was probably used in a CM or something, lol.

Beauty4123 30th September 2016 01:39 AM

"We are the QUEENS" is so so epic, omg. :blove I'm just blown away! It's sooo J-pop & absolutely so ayu - it even reminds me of a few of her past songs (like, maybe "Rule" or "Mirrorcle World"?) it's just got that powerful-ness to it that only ayu could deliver. Love it. :heart :heart :heart

EndOfTheWorld 30th September 2016 01:45 AM

I don't follow her that closely but I thought she had good popularity? It's been declining? I guess I haven't heard anything about her since the 2000s so it is a bit surprising to see her.:think
I'm so happy that T.M. Revolution is charting in 2016.:luv2
Never thought he would still be in the top 10 by now.

DevilHunter_04 30th September 2016 01:48 AM

I love the song and would love to see a PV for it. :)

Ryusei 30th September 2016 01:57 AM

It's epic dam. I didn't expect to like it after the CM part but it's really good. It's #12 on iTunes rn which is kinda surprising since it's not even anywhere on the front page

RealLight 30th September 2016 02:47 AM

I'd say... it's nice. I'll have to listen to it a few more times, digest everything and then I'll have a really solid opinion on it.

With all the buzz here I thought it was going to be something else.

Evan Odinson 30th September 2016 02:48 AM

I loved it :love really hope to see a full pv with the Queen concept!

"Soba ni Iru ne" is Thelma's ultimate (and the only one) hit. It charted for 46 weeks and in September 2008, the Guinness World Records certified the song as the best selling download single in Japan. Maybe that's why it's still a hit in 2016. haha
