The release date in this news clip states a 09/30 release, so we may get it even sooner!

Maybe it's a September 30 / October 1st deal? Like the night of Sept 30th / morning of October 1st release so it could be either? Let me link to this as well just to cover our bases.

^ If it's going to be released in any of these dates, I can see it and/or Real me as the opening song for the TA tour.

Yeah, some people are thinking it will be We are the QUEENS -> Beautiful Fighters -> Real me perhaps with all the hinting she's been doing.

It's just sort of a joke in the CM where Ayu appears as two types of queens. "Race Queen. Clash of Queen... Race Queen... Clash of Queen... Clash of Race Queen!"

Not really for anything in particular.

Ayu's "Race Queen" look was so freakin' sexy! and the whole "Queen" look is just too darn fierce - plus, I'm really liking that little snippet of the song too! I wouldn't mind it being a digital or physical single release, so I'm totally looking forward to October, now.

The concept for this advert is ridiculous, lmao. It doesn't make any sense. Race Queen vs. Clash of Queen? It would make more sense if it was Race Queen vs. (Another Type of) Queen = Clash of Queens. I study advertising and I'm wondering what the process was for them to develop such a concept...

Anyways, the song doesn't sound bad but I don't like when she used English so predominantly in her songs - it always brings the song down a notch or two. Her voice does not suit singing in the english language.

Japanese advertising agencies tend to go with kind of outlandish concepts.

Outlandish is one thing, but utterly nonsensical is another.

I hope the actual song and the actual video are as glorious as what we have in the CM.

It's not nonsensical, they're related by the word queen. It's just not the most...obvious choice. Unless this was a series of cm's. Dancing queen, race queen, prom queen, drag queen, actual queen. But I doubt that's the case.

It's a weak connection, but it's more sensical than if she were dressed as, iunno, a teacher. That'd be nonsensical lol.

It's just tongue in cheek.
