E-girls subunit ShuuKaRen release video for debut single “UNIVERSE”

Your faves are SHOOK!!

E-girls subunit ShuuKaRen, consisting of Fujii sisters Fujii Shuuka (from Flower) and Fujii Karen (from Happiness), has released their highly anticipated music video for their debut single “UNIVERSE.

Fans will be excited to hear both girls will singing, as this song marks the first time Fujii Shuuka will be featured as more than just a performer since her debut with Flower in 2011.

For the music video, the duo worked with Shigeaki Kubo, a director who has previously worked on more than 400 music videos including EXILE, E-girls, and Namie Amuro. His concept for the video was about breaking free from the monotony of everyday life, with an emphasis of showing the girls’ powerful performance skills in a variety of spaces.

Check it out below.

The song, which used as theme song for Beats by Dre “Show Your Color” CM, was produced in part by DJ DARUMA from PKCZ, giving this song a modern world-class club sound.

“UNIVERSE” has an exclusive prerelease with Apple Music starting today.

The single will be released across all platforms starting October 5 in three editions: two CD+DVD editions, limited with a 52-page magazine and regular CD+DVD edition, and a limited pressing One Coin CD edition.

      they look good

      but compared to happiness’ earlier days, karen can actually sing now. so i don’t get her suddenly becoming a rapper lmao

      and shuuka’s singing voice caught me off guard — she has a low voice so i expected her range to be lower

        omg i followed happiness from day 1, when kiss me dropped. karen’s improvement is magic, so proud.

      • Sakura Harano

        Yeah, I thought she would have a more deeper singing voice xD

      Hello guys it’s been a while since I lasted posted. Now I know who sings this song UNIVERSE: ShuuKaRen!! Been waiting for this song since they gave a snippet of it on the Beats by Dr Dre CM!! Now it’s finally here!! All I need are the lyrics.

      I feel like it started out strong then got messy. Karens part felt out of place.

      The song sound strange. I prefer when it’s in CM.

      Shuuka’s singing voice is sweeter than i thought.

      Another question, how’s Beat by Dre headphone?

      Is it work well? My phone is going to died soon and I need to get a new iPhone ASAP but I can use a discount and get Beat by Dre headphone along with new iPhone.

      If the headphone is good, I’m gonna get one, but if it’s not, I don’t want it.

      They should have made take a shot the lead single and universe the b-side. This song doesn’t do this unit any justice.

      The only reason why R is in capital is dedication for their brother, Johnny’s WEST’s Ryusei.

    • Carey Hamilton

      Imagine them collaborating with ryuusei XD

      MY GIRLS! The song sounds so good (already loved it when I heard it in the CM!) and they look as gorgeous as always! Go ShuuKaRen! <333

      Japan is always so late on catching up with trends. EDM died a couple of years ago.

      It’s cute… but why does it sound like it was made in 2012.

      As much as I admire Shuuka for her charisma and stage presence. She really can’t sing for shit. Still better than Ami though lmfao!!
