Tail of Hope is the thirty-fourth Japanese single by South Korean singer BoA, released on June 26, 2013.
I’ve been waiting for a new BoA song for soooo long, and now Tail of Hope is finally here! BoA kicks off the summer season with a very fitting uptempo summer song consisting of very catchy beats and synths, together with some nice bass riffs in the background. Some of the effects in the arrangement make the song a little more ethereal as well while the bridge covers dubstep-like music. BoA herself puts everything into her voice, giving an amazing performance without oversinging a single note. Perfect single to return to Japanese music with!
The B-side, Baby you…, is the mellow R&B song on the single to balance it off. It’s much better than most of the R&B songs BoA used to make in the past, a lot of them were either very generic or sounded much alike, but there’s something about this song that makes it sweeter and a bit more memorable. That’s just the thing with this song: where Tail of Hope was uptempo and pretty funky, this song is sweet and mellow. Another standing ‘o’ for the vocals, I could get used to BoA turning out singles like this!
