What a trooper for clinging to the last place to the very end, only to be beat by "All for you", dddd. Written by Kumi and produced by Mori Daisuke (MBLAQ's "Still In Love", IZ*ONE's "Target", quite a few songs for Kubota Toshinobu), the cute ditty was used as a theme songs for a winter sale campaign by a retail company Sogo & Seibu. Get that coin, I guess. Where do I start with this? For years I've been dreading this track. I can't believe I'm saying this, but the melody coupled with the way Kumi sings the line "la la la melting chocolate" is so damn grating it becomes annoying. For some reason Kuu decided to go all out cutesy on us here and it feels. I'll admit, that I warmed up to the track a little over time, as the overall melodic component of the chorus has a catchy quality to it, but at the end of the day, the result is still subpar to me. It also kinda irks me that they used this as a promo track for the album and it got some tracton with fans. The lyrics aren't actually as obnoxious as you might expect from a song sounding like that: Lalala melting chocolate The bittersweet is proof of us Lalala melting chocolate love Let's mix our different loves until they melt together Lalala melting chocolate Tears bring out the taste at times Lalala melting chocolate love It's still a marble pattern now but someday I'm sure we can be as one!! (c) @otenkiame Welp, it looks like the sugar was to sweet for most of us. @Weslicious (2) doesn't want to go to the dentist, "Can a song give you cavities? This sickly thing is trying it’s best." I don't blame him, nobody likes dentists. Meanwhile @otenkiame (2) has the same thoughts on the track as me, albeit in harsher tone, ""Lalala melting chocolate" and I hit skip. I find this to be the absolute epitome of everything I hate about her cute songs. And I hate that I actually get this song stuck in my head at times. Ugh...this should've stayed a b-side as originally planned." @Yeziirl (3) is one of those, who can't hold their sugar, "I had a sudden urge to vomit from the first second, It’s a bit harsh, but I hate this song, sorry…" @Eskiath (6) shows his Kumi knowledge, "The song is not as trash as I remembered but the remix is amazing btw!" You're right, it's a lot better. At the same time @abael (8) gives a bit of perspective on the song, "Would be a standout, save for the fact it just doesn't suit KK that well. Her voice has a harsh quality that is a nice point of difference versus many of her jpop peers, but this song is clearly meant for one of them instead." I appreciate this take, as I noticed the vocal issue as well. Looks like @Music Is Life (9,5) has a sweet tooth, "Besides bopping my ass off and loving the production – especially that guitar! – the only thing that ran through my mind was “mmmmm chocolate.”" God bless avex for uploading some of her performances officially.
