Announced earlier, the E-girls ride is coming to end soon. Luckily for us, we still have a new single to promote from the group that’s been a cornerstone for JPop for the last 9 years. “Betsu sekia (別世界)” gets the group on an funky upbeat with memorable chorus vocals accentuated by the muted instrumental tones of the verses. The song sounds focused,refreshing, and cool in a way that makes me wish the group wasn’t on the way out. As the girls line up for their dance shots in front of the prop tree-for-all-seasons, we see the choreography and execution that made the E-girls a favorite of talent stans. Well-styled solo shots give the girls a layer of glamour that seems impossible for most of the idol offerings that come through my desk. So, let’s just enjoy the ride from here on out, eh? “Betsu sekai (別世界)” goes on sale January 29, 2020.
