Stephanie’s 7th single, entitled FUTURE, was released on 04.29.09. The title track was used as the theme song to the movie High-Kick Girl.
FUTURE. The song starts off very abruptly and it almost sounds like there was supposed to be something before it. She does sound good though despite the music not being anything particularly wonderful. As the song continues, her voice is nice but the music never gains that strong point to make the audience pay attention. It’s just quite boring and never shows off Stephanie’s true power.
BREAKDOUN is the single’s B-side and does no better job of entertaining the listener. The music is boring and her vocals are nothing out of her ordinary. Honestly, the most interesting thing about the song is the way that the song is spelled.
In order to promote the single, a PV for FUTURE was made. The video is very simple and just features Stephanie wandering around town enjoying the beautiful day. Such a simple concept is nice every once in a while. She may not look very good in the video but that’s okay.
Single Ranking: C
It’s another boring single from Stephanie and it’s sad because she has a great voice. It would be nice if she was given something to make it shine.
