my thoughts exactly and probably the reason i dislike it so much.
beloved is among my list of worst ayu tracks.

To be completely honest, it's gonna blend into anything else she has and i won't be able to tell the difference from any other recent ballad, i'm not feeling it, although it's a beautiful piece, i'm not gonna be playing it on repeat. HOWEVER, i am SO HAPPY it's new music and she proved us wrong

I like the cover~

I might be in the minority, but I like the arrangement. I don't care that it's same old if it's good same old. Plus, I don't think a song dedicated to her child would be the best opportunity to experiment. Might turn out to be a disaster lol. Best to keep it simple for this one.

Definitely don't like the song, sounds to me like one of her many blank album-filler ballads IMO, it won't find its way to my playlist unfortunately...

Still wasn't expecting her to drop a new single so this is a good surprise, plus the cover is incredible, so whatever!

my thoughts exactly we can wait until the next release for her to come up with something refreshing. for now, I'll take this ballad and like it for what it is.

It's totally not a bad "same old", she's known for her ballads, it's, i'd say one of her trademarks. I actually have no issues with the arrangement either

However, even with ballads you can, i'd say she did it perfectly with "You are the only one". It's a ballad but it's different, it stands out from her recent stuff, at least to me. I dunno lol.

Wow I didn't expect it to really be a new song! It's nice. I doesn't really click with me, but I'm very happy she's still making music


When you laugh, you know, the way you squeeze
one eye shut is the same
The way you pout and stick out your lower lip
when youíre sleepy is also the same



I'll translate the whole song tomorrow if nobody has by then~

Just correcting: It's her first song written using kana/kanji but not her first song with a japanese title (Hana, kanariya, HANABI, SAKURA, Zutto..., Sayonara).

Of course, but it was mostly just going off the 日本語 in all the articles and such. The official site also uses 日本語タイトル.

I like it. It's beautiful and it 100% fits what she seemed to want. A beautiful track with nothing very crazy happening so the lyrics get she center spot.

I. Was. Right.

Just listened to the spot, not the full song yet. It sounds typical Ayuís ballad but a bit bland, doesnít it? But honestly, Iíll take anything at this point. I would had liked a physical release but itís ok, maybe weíll see a new album someday.

I find it to be very pretty. But then, I'm really go into her ballads these days. I find the melody to be sweet but deeper than other recent ballads, and I like her voice.

I've been really into her ballads lately as well so this is such a welcome surprise. I google translated the lyrics and its a really sweet song (supposedly) about her son, and I'm really happy she wanted to share it with us.

I'm so glad Ayu is writing happy songs again.

"WORDS" got me worried about her. She seemed depressed and sad during that song.
