Hey! Say! JUMP enjoys summer in the jungle in “Maji Sunshine” PV + Arena Tour Announced

As previously reported, Hey! Say! JUMP has a new single out titled Maji Sunshine. The new song, which is set as KOSE Cosmeport’s “Suncut (R)” commercial background song, is a festival song that has packed in the feelings of a boy in love frolicking under the blue sky, and it will make you suddenly want to start dancing. It’s a rare straight-forward “Wasshoi-type” summer love song from the group.

In the PV, the group breaks out of a boring day in class and find themselves in a jungle! The single was released last May 11 and sets the highest selling first day single sales for the group.

In addition, the group has announced a national arena tour kicking off in July. The tour will cover a total of 29 shows in 7 locations, including 12 shows at Yokohama Arena. No word yet on a new album, but it is expected to come out before the tour starts.

      this group seriously needs to grow the fuck up

      • guest

        agreed, but it won’t happen anytime soon, since it sells well for some reason…

        • Satowwwshi

          Yeah well since japanese people loves “kawaii” stuff i don’t think they’ll get rid of this concept anytime soon. But pls they’re not teenagers anymore for heaven’s sake. One “mature” single release (every year?) won’t hurt

        • What

          Aren’t a lot of their fans pre-teens & teens? I thought that’s why their cute concepts sold well..

          • Reileen

            The younger fan demogs of this group overlaps with that of Sexy Zone’s fan demogs
            They are regaining that lost momentum but singles like Super Delicate and OVER, two of their highest selling singles aren’t exactly cute.

          • maniha

            nope. a wide range of people are in thier 20’s. there are also many international fans who love them.

        • maniha

          I think you should listen to their other tracks.They are beautiful.This single sold mostly because Hey say 7 and hey say best’s were rock type(just one look on their names and you will know it).On the other hand many people loved Eve song which was fabulous(everyone admit it). and maji sunshine is a cool song not cute. it’s just that they gave 2,3 consecutive cute songs does’nt mean that they always give cute vibes. If you had listened to their previous singles you’ll know that there are only 3,4 cutesy songs. the rest are matured and cool song. thier lyrics are beautiful. just try listening to them.

          • K.Y.

            People often categorize Johnnys groups based on their a-sides. That’s why they always think they’re childish or repetitive…

            • Maniha

              Well they should try listening other tracks too.i myself always listened to their a sides but not anymore. Because i know all other tracks are wayyy better than a sides.

    • maniha

      I think they are wonderful.Listen to their tracks.Eve is such a lovely song.

    • PrinceOtaku

      This song makes me happy ^^

    • Ryusei

      • Reileen

        Probably, even NEWS moved to Blu Ray release too
