A short radio preview for Morning Musume’s 45th single titled Maji Desu ka Ska! has been released.
The preview is 1:26 minutes long which should give fans a pretty good idea of what the song sounds like since it includes the first part of the song until the chorus, and for the most part I love the song so far since the song has a really catchy and happy beat and also because everyone seems to have at least one line which seems like a great way for the 9th generation members to show off their skills.
If you heard the preview on Bijo Gaku then you pretty much have a good idea of what the first lines and the chorus sound like since Mizuki, Ikuta, Riho, and Kanon get the first lines, followed by Reina, Sayu, Mitsui, Gaki, and Ai, and even though we haven’t heard most of the song I really loved how the vocals sounded since they matched the happy beat of the instrumental.
The start of the song is really happy since we get to hear all of the members cheering and even though it seemed like it played for a bit too long it added a happy feeling to the song and along with the ska beat and the many instruments the song follows the same feeling throughout the preview.
So far reactions for the song have been either positive or negative (mostly positive), which is understandable since the song completely changed Momusu’s image but I am glad to see that they decided to do a happy genki song for the 9th generation since it fits well with their ages and it also gives us a nice change of sound for fans of “Genki” Momusu to enjoy.
Overall the song sounds amazing so far since it has a happy genki beat with great vocals, and even though the song is a big change from their past releases it seems like this song will be a great way for fans to enjoy a small change of sound since the ska beat and upbeat instrumental with many different sounds definitely give this song a unique and amazing sound.
Hopefully we get a full preview sometime soon along with a PV preview since it will be very interesting to see what kind of theme, dance, and lineup it will have.
The release date is set for 3/23.
