hitomi – WORLD! WIDE! LOVE! [29th Single]

June 4, 2009 at 1:35 am (hitomi) (, )


hitomi’s 29th single, entitled WORLD! WIDE! LOVE!, was released on 05.20.09.

WORLD! WIDE! LOVE! is a sweet pop number. The song begins with a pretty upbeat instrumental that gives a true feeling of hope and love. hitomi then comes up on the first verse and it sounds like there’s almost some distortion on her voice. She actually sounds really cool while keeping that cute personality that makes her shine. The chorus is a little expected but it’s really cute when she simgs “world wide love.” The section of vocalizations is pretty cool just because the distortion makes them sound different than usual. It’s an enjoyable happy song that is perfect for the arrival of summer.

The single’s B-side is ココロの草原. This song differs greatly from the A-side since it takes on an old-school jazzy feel. It’s actually pretty catchy and hitomi provides some great vocals that compliment the music perfectly. Surprisingly, it also has a kind of summery feeling to it so it serves as a good connector to the A-side in terms of atmosphere. It’s an enjoyable song that will make the listener want to get up and dance.

In order to promote the single, a PV for WORLD! WIDE! LOVE! was made. The video is kind of strange since hitomi doesn’t even appear in it. It is set at a girls’ school and features a bunch of girls with blindfolds on just having fun. They wander the campus and go swimming in the pool. Then they remove the blindfolds and have fun at the beach. It’s kind of strange but it does fit with the atmosphere of the song.

Single Ranking: B

WORLD! WIDE! LOVE! was a nice return for hitomi to come back with, prepping for her new album LOVE LIFE 2. Hopefully she’ll give us a little more aggression or something like GO MY WAY.

    I’m hoping her new album will be the smash comeback it deserves, in terms of music anyway. Hopefully another “GO MY WAY” 🙂
