Recently on Hey! Say! 7’s radio show they released a mall preview for NYC’s upcoming song Wonderful Cupid. Since Nakayama Yuma’s solo song, Garasu no Mahou, has already been released digitally I thought I’d also post about that song too. I do apologize for this post being so late, it just completely slipped my mind.
Let’s start off with my reactions to Wonderful Cupid. I am just completely underwhelmed by this song. It songs nothing like previous NYC singles, and nothing like what I was expecting at all. The song is a very soft sounding ballad. People have said that it sounds like a lullaby and I agree 100% with that. The song sounds very sleepy, and child like. I’m not really into the song at all.
Next is Yuma’s solo song from Playzone Garasu no Mahou. Now, this song I like. This song is also sung very light and soft for the most part, so it does match with Wonderful Cupid in that sense. But the music is completely different. It has this great dance beat to it. It also has this very sad and heartbreaking feel to it. Which matches the sad lyrics of the song. All around this song is very sad and beautiful. It’s also sung pretty well. I never thought Yuma was really that amazing of a singer. He’s good, but there are certainly more talented singers in Johnny’s. But he really sounds good in this song. It fits his voice perfectly. I just really hope they don’t change anything about this song now that it’s being released as a single.
