For her latest digital single, the Up Front soloist Kikkawa You celebrates her 27th birthday with the digital single “Koi (恋)”. Coinciding with the first day of the Reiwa Era, “Koi” is a half of a two-part release with the as-yet unreleased “Yoake”. When the cycle is completed, the two songs will tell different love stories about the same protagonist. Lest we forget, Kikkawa is a fine vocalist, and this promotional video that features the singer in the recording booth highlights her talent. The emotional pop arrangement relies heavily on overdriven guitar sounds and live drums to make its point. I’m sure we all can take a few minutes to appreciate Kikkawa You in a “no nonsense” promotional video. “Koi” is now available at the digital retailers listed below.
