Announced on the website, right after Karin's graduation announcement.
 
Pop Music / Suki tte ii yo (ポップミュージック / 好きって言ってよ]
 
Karin's last in Juice, Yume and Riai's debut. If you don't count the "new vocal version" of Hitori de.
 
Also, b-sides make a comeback! Borderline and VA-VA-VOOM will be featured as b-sides on different editions.

A new version of Tsuzuiteiku Story will also be on this single, I guess as a fixed b-side. It's called "Tsuzuiteiku Story (Symphonic Version feat. Karin)".
 
Limited Edition A: Pop Music MV
Limited Edition B: Suki tte ii yo MV
SP Version: Another version MVs for Pop Music and Suki tte ii yo
Regular A: b-side Borderline
Regular B: b-side VA-VA-VOOM

 

/EDIT: Pop Music is a cover of KAN's song of the same name that will be released later this month.

They should've just thrown on Platonic Planet on there since Karin is leaving and I think she was one of the more prominent members in that one...(these tour songs that don't get released are sometimes frustrating).

Releasing a cover of a barely one-month-old song seems stupid, but if we get the killer funk arrangement that's sleeping inside of it, no one will care. There are a lot of ways they could go with this that would sound good, tbh, so I hope they don't drop the ball and just ape the laid-back disco of the original.

Wait wait wait.... a cover song as one of the lead singles..... ugghhh... 

 

Don't think it will be any better than the original. This must have been some sort of collab-type situation if they're covering it so soon after release. Also even the original overly uses "pop" to the point of annoyance lmao.

 

At least they're releasing decent b-sides. I really like va-va-voom soooo.

I mean it's not much different from them letting C-ute and Angerme sing Nakajima Takui's songs, except his version was released later. They've done this with a few older H!P songs too.

Yeah, it's probably more that the company tried out the song with both of them and ended up liking both versions.

Oh I see, he's part of Zetima. I thought he was under a different label.... I guess that makes more sense. I forgot he was part of Sakura Night Fever as well.

Having listened to Kan’s version, I feel like Juice could bring some much needed life to the song. It’s so, dead? He created a good song but he doesn’t execute it very well. Looking forward to see how they funk it up!

Preview of Suki tte itte yo on Tomoko's radio show (if the time stamp doesn't work: 21:04).

For a song in line of Bitansan and Hitori de it really doesn't sound like the other two. It's a whole different feeling.

Pop Music. Could be funkier, but it's cute.

 

That effing YMCA opening in the beginning. And then... The Hustle. It's probably a homage to several songs?

Nope, that's a hard pass for me at the moment.

 

I would have rather they cover something like Ken Hirai's Pop Star lmaooo... but it's not a new song or someone H!P has collabed with before so... but my point is I'm not feeling this Pop Music cover.

Wow y'all, way to make me the black sheep in this situation lol!

 

I like some aspects of the song but overall.... I'll have to see if it grows on me.

You forgot the "Pop Muzik" hard intro. I'm not as disappointed as TicTac, but I am disappointed. This is pretty close to the original which is just such a throw-away.

It's totally a homage to Karin's love for retro-ish music.

Totally. I wish the lettering used for "POP MUSIC" was more polished on the Reg A and Special covers, though.

It's the KAN-version, but KAN did put up a deconstruction version of the first 20 seconds on his website.

 

The first bass line made me think of Seinfield lol. A part of the strings reminds me of Abba's Gimme Gimme Gimme, too.

There's a call-back to "Le Freak" in the J=J version, too.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who heard the ABBA vibes. I thought I was imagining it.
