七色の明日 ~brand new beat~
[Nanairo no Ashita ~brand new beat~]
[Rainbow-colored Tomorrow ~brand new beat~]
Lyrics: MIZUE, BoA / Music & Arrangement: 野井洋児 [Yoji Noi]

Oh, dear, god in heaven. This song is so happy. In fact, as soon as I heard it I turned to my friend in the car and said, “Doesn’t that just make you want to kill small children?!” She nodded. Synth pop at it’s most joyful, BoA’s sugar-sweet singing floats on top like chocolate syrup on a sundae. Shoot me now. Seriously though, I actually like this song, it’s fun and happy and everything a good pop song should be. But, I heard a song about a year later called ‘realize’ by melody. and realized that they share almost exactly the same arrangement. Sadly, it was BoA who released the same song not melody. and I can never listen to melody.’s version anyway, because BoA’s is so much better, but still… someone should have gotten some writing credit.

Lyrics: Satomi / Music: [山口寛雄] Hiroo Yamaguchi

Soft snapping and a sparkling background bring us into a beautiful ballad. BoA sounds amazing and the melody is very pretty and the background sweeping and moving. Problem? Who hasn’t done this? Honestly, I’ve heard it a million times, even from BoA, but; does she do it well? Most definitely. In fact, it is one of my favorite ballads from her, and that’s saying something because she’s released some amazing ballads.

I was actually, after I got over the urge to kill small children, rather impressed with the single. I am proud to say that it did much better for her, breaking her trend in declining sales and giving her a #1 on the daily charts. Both songs were pretty and fun, but a bit stolen. It’s all good though, she did them very well!

  1. Cool! Yaya1! I love this single so much XD abd yeah her new song ‘Sparkling’ sounds almost like Nanairo no Ashita

  2. […] song carries the great chorus well but sounds entirely too much like her previous single, ‘七色の明日 ~brand new beat~‘. The same exuberantly happy feeling and just a general overkill of the major key signature […]

  3. I absolutely loved this single. Both of the A-sides we’re great. NNA~BNB~’s dance was cute the songs catchy and BoA’s gorgeous in the vid. She also sounds amazing in Your Colour and the arrangement is really beautiful

  4. […] Natsumi Watanabe, BoA releases her most successful single since Do the Motion. It sold more than 七色の明日 ~brand new beat~ and double of KEY OF HEART / DOTCH. The title track is a standard ballad. Airy, whispy synth float […]
