Hello, Arama! Japan readers and welcome to this week’s installment of #1 Song Review! Last week saw Kis-My-Ft2 defeat DA PUMP. DA PUMP is back this week, facing off against a newcomer. Find out what Ronald thought of the songs that topped the singles charts this week and share your thoughts on them too!
Oricon #1 / Billboard Hot 100 #1: KEN☆Tackey – Gyakuten Lovers (not released digitally or for streaming)
Ronald: I enjoy this at times, and then I hate. I really liked the beginning; it was a fun 00s dance pop song. But then the chorus came, and all I got was children’s TV show. Especially with Miyake Ken’s voice. The man is beautiful, but his voice isn’t. 5/10
Oricon Digital Singles #1 / Billboard Download Songs #1 / Billboard Streaming Songs #1: DA PUMP – U.S.A. (Oricon #20 / Billboard Hot 100 #2)
Ronald: Same review as before: The eurobeat, the eurobeat, the eurobeat… I’m a bit of a sucker for it. It’s just so fun and nostalgic. It doesn’t take itself too seriously. It is what it is. 6.5/10
