AKB48 subgroup French Kiss will be releasing their 2nd single, If, on January 19th.
This is yet another song and PV preview in one. Which means we hardly get to hear the song at all. Nothing beyond the chorus, so the verse and bridge could be completely bland. However, I hope that’s not the cause because the chorus is completely amazing. It’s pretty soft but heavy enough to dance to. The song so far is also extremely catchy and very pleasant to listen to. But that’s mostly because of the flawlessness of Yuki’s voice. She definitely one of the best, and one of my favorite, voices in AKB48. French Kiss as a whole blends together beautifully. All of the members seem to have similar voices/tones in their voices.
I also want to briefly talk about the PV because the 40 seconds that they show seem to tell the whole story. In the 40 seconds you mostly only see the dance scenes and each member longing for someone at school. But what the story looks like to me is all 3 girls like the same guy, but Yuki ends up seeing him behind her friends back. Hence why she’s always walking ahead of them, like she’s leaving them early to meet him. That would make the PV really interesting. But it will probably end up being something more mundane like basically just longer for someone and “if” you were with them. But either way I’m excited for the PV. Half because I like the song and half because the guy in it looks pretty cute.
