Yurayura / Gimme Gimme♥ is the 16th single by Japanese singer BENI, and it was released on May 5, 2010. The single reached #20 on the Oricon weekly charts, where it charted for three weeks and sold 5,227 copies.
Yeay, more upbeat from BENI, I love this girl. Yurayura does not only feature a good beat for dancing and some synths, but the more classical instruments are prominently there as well, such as some strings and a piano. It’s a very good mix between those instruments. BENI’s vocals are altered in some parts when she sings ‘Can’t let you go‘, and it gives the song some spice. Jealous of her vocals, really, I want ’em. Catchy song!
Gimme Gimme♥ is the cuter A-side here, it’s the one that fits the cover most. Some of the lyrics are fun, like BENI’s counting in the verses (‘1-2 shinkokyuushite, 3-4 kimi o mitsume‘ and ‘Gimme gimme your love sotto‘). I may like Yurayura over this one, but this isn’t bad either for sure! It gives the perfect R&B feel with the clap beat, chimes and synth riffs.
Okay from now on I’m gonna love the DJ HASEBE REMIX tracks every time they come along, here’s another good one! bye bye DJ HASEBE REMIX is very different from the original, because it features more of a beat (that lovely drum beat is to die for) and the synths are gone now. Sometimes this DJ HASEBE can even make a song better, but let’s not forget the good original track.
And all of the songs above are featured on the album Lovebox! Sounds awesome to me, because all of the singles for this album got five stars from me (yes, this one too, just look below!). BENI fully recaptured my attention with Sign, bye bye and this double A-side single, so I won’t keep this story on for too long. Let’s just say I’m not done with her yet, there’s a new star added to my fav’s list!
