I think it's just an addlib, like the "zeya zeya zeya / seiya seiya seiya" part in Yuunagi, with no real meaning.

^ in Yuunagi it's actually a Japanese cheer! It's more upbeat when chanted. I can't make out what she's saying in face my fears at all, though.

Yes, it sounds like this, but it wasn't her initial thought, almost a coincidence. She said that during NHK's "Professional Shigoto no Ryūgi".

I just viewed her Hikari performance from Laughter in the Dark, i really loved it! The new arrangements are pure gold!

I also love Face My Fear since the first preview of KH3, it's quite touching and upbeat in the same time. It fits KH universe quite well.
I haven't listened to Don't think twice yet but i love Chikai.
My guess is i'll prefer Face My Fear in english and Chikai over Don't think twice since i'm so used to the japanese version.

Glad to see the single is charting well everywhere, i would love she take this occasion to make few concerts worldwide, i would definitely go if she stops to Paris.

Taken from the Billboard interview with Skrillex, about how the collab came to be and how he met Hikki:

Quote:
How did the collaboration between you and Utada come to fruition?

Utada actually hit me up a couple of years ago, back in 2016, about remixing “Don’t Think Twice.” I was so excited, and I remember loading the stems into Ableton and sitting there like, “Fuck, I don’t know what to do.” The song was a little bit too hard for me to touch. I really liked it for what it was, but it didn’t feel like that jazzy melody lent toward a dance remix. I didn’t think I could do it justice.
The next year, I happened to be in London during the same time she was. I was writing on some other pop song with [producer] Poo Bear and found out she was there, so we texted. We decided to try to write a new song together, just for fun -- to see what could happen. All three of us ended up getting into the studio and writing “Face My Fears” in under an hour.
Quote:
How did you and Utada first meet?

How we met is crazy, it’s nuts! I was playing this heavy-metal festival in Germany called Rock am Ring in 2012 and was backstage in the Jägermeister lounge after the show. They sponsored me, so I was literally wearing my Jägermeister hat. [Laughs] I was just chilling, having drinks with my friends, when I get a tap on the shoulder. I turn around and this girl goes, “Hey, Skrillex, that was a really great show. I’m a big fan of yours.” I was like, “Awesome, cool!” We talked for a couple minutes before I even asked her what her name was, and she goes, “Utada.” I was like, “Whoa, wait, are you Utada Hikaru?” I became starstruck.
It was super dark in the backstage area, with artists just hanging around, and it was the last place I would ever expect to see Utada Hikaru. I mean, a heavy metal festival in Germany? It was crazy, so random. I guess she had come to watch the festival and caught my set. We became friends and hung out a couple times across the years, kind of scattered. She had no idea I was a crazy fan of hers for years, so it was pretty cool.

Utada at a metal concert why am I not shocked lmao

The opening cinematic of KH3 goes so well with the song. A massive bop and I don’t care what anyone says.

Lol, Rock am Ring is not a metal festival or concert, it's one of Germany's biggest (rock) festivals. Like the name says.
But as it is so big, it also opened up to more mainstream acts like Skrillex.

Nevertheless interesting that she came to attend a festival here.

Off topic but did anyone see Hikki’s tweet about people farting in an elevator?

At this point nothing Utada does anymore surprises me that much If she would make an entire song by just stumping on random instruments and it would sound amazing I would just shurg and say "yeah, probably, it's Hikki"

Random, but I was jamming to this song when I realised the verse sounds like a sped up version of Stay Gold’s verse hahaha. Or is it just me..
