The full radio preview for C-ute’s 16th single titled Momoiro Sparkling (Eng: Pink Sparkling) has been released.
For a general point of view, the song is very cute and happy which is a big contrast with their previous singles that had a more mature theme, but I have to say that after listening to it a few times, I really appreciated it since it gives positive vibes with the genki instrumental and cute rythm and lyrics.
The song starts off with an awesome instrumental that could put anyone in a scenery of “summer fun” with a happy beat of claps,cute guitar and synthesizer. The lyrics that follow are very calm which seem to fit wrong with the song, but after a few listens, they really are awesome since they are slow but are followed by upbeat and cute lines from each member, as well as they give the chance for each girl to sing once.
The most noticeable part is the many interjections and sound effects that the girls do like elongating words or adding “Chu Chu”, after saying Sparkling as well as many “Oooh” and “Yeah!” which really combine to give the song that fresh and happy feeling that fits C-ute so well.
I have to say that I specially like the instrumental break where they all sing Chu Chu Chu in rythm at 2:56 which is followed by a cute sound. After this, the song’s instrumental slows down a bit where we get to hear them singing more slowly the remaining verse.
Overall, the song’s main point seems to be the instrumental and the happy beat it got, and I insist that everyone gives it a few listens before judging since many might be disappointed with the major change (Although I’m sure that the PV will make everyone love it since it usually changes people’s mind about a song).
The release date is set for 5/25.
