0.04 She needs to make that mirror and sell it in tour... so iconic.

Here’s hoping the full song proves me wrong!
I dont expect anything from this song anymore. I just check what she posts on social media and then close it but then I saw that mirror in the clip.

The cover looks modern, sexy & very chic! It's definitely my favourite out of the ones we got since 2020.

I'm very excited to hear the song!! I expected something completely different at first (like most people) but I already enjoy the preview (that "lalalala..." ).

It's really nice, also very TK (made me think of Globe) but in a good way.

Thank you for sharing!

It is alright. I like it better than Summer again already... and probably equally to Non-fiction... But I might end up prefering Non-Fiction on the long run. I think what I prefer in this new song is the last minute, both the vocals and the music sounds nice in the ending part. The bridge is cool, the verses and the chorus are just OK. This is far far far away from the level of Crossroads.

I liked it very much. I guess it will pair fair well with Dreamed a Dream in the album.

It is alright I think but not really my cup of tea.... Summer Again and Non Fiction are better for me.

Very TK / globe indeed, thanks for sharing.
I don't hate it, it's an okay song that might grow on me a bit later, but definitely not a bop like crossroad was (instant hit, my favourite track on Love songs)
I can see why she made it a single though, at least I won't skip it like Summer Again on the next album (sorry but that song is still a no for me personally)
Now let's wait for the lyrics to see how "sad yet powerful" the message can be...

The best song she released since TROUBLE remains Dream a Dream for me #bop

Amen to all this !

First, thank you so much for the file.

I already listened to it and... it's very Ayuish. I think I need to read the translation before giving an opinion about the song. But I think I like it. The problem is that even though I defend dancing ayu songs, I miss a true sad ballad. You know? Those ones like Last Minute, that with the first piano notes you FEEL the lyrics.

But it's a good song. Not what I expected by her words about it, but a good song.

I liked it a lot, but I was expecting something very different because of the details Ayu had shared. I like the chorus and I appreciate that her voice doesn't sound as high-pitched as in other songs.

Thanks for sharing!

I'm really loving it, even if I was expecting something deeper and darker sounding. Yes, it's a bit generic globe-y, but it's such a throwback bop - and sonically on trend with the 90's resurgence right now. It honestly makes me a bit nostalgic for that period in J-POP, when it was a sound all its own.
