After that, “” by Kep1er ranked second with 68,316 copies, and “Suki is rock! with 40,931 copies, followed by Sexy Zone. “Trust Me, Trust You.” is the 22nd single overall, and the title track is the theme song for the drama “Tomodachi Game R4” (TV Asahi) starring Fuma Kikuchi. Hiroshi Hirai, who wrote this song, said it contained the message “I want to have hope in any age”. Focusing on the sonic side, the synth sound resonates on the front beat from start to finish in addition to heavy rhythm with low bass. At first sight, this synth gives off an impression of detachment, but if you look at it from another angle, you can feel a firm will to hold even on slightly irregular beats. It’s the sound of the image of bravely facing a great existence like an unstable world or an era with a core. Towards the end, the kicks and hats got even more intense, and Kikuchi’s raps got more intense. The structure of this song, which builds excitement through rhythm changes and vocal work, rather than chord progressions and depth of sound, is a clear departure from conventional Sexy Zone song styles. On the other hand, the coupling song “Sleepless” is the opening theme of the drama “Akai Nurse Call” (TV Tokyo) with Katsutoshi Sato. A loop of distorted guitar riffs, a dodgy bassline and the sound of broken glasses leave a lasting impression on the listener as they evoke an unsettling night unique to this drama set in a hospitable mystery. Throughout the song, there’s a lot of time with just one instrument and one vocalist, which fills the whole song with a feeling of being stuck. Especially the 10-second part of the second half, which consists only of piano and singing voice, is the moment when the feeling of loneliness is finally achieved in this closed world. However, the phrase “Beyond that sky/A new morning/Calling us/Gotta try again” that is sung is a song that is both desperate and hopeful. In a way, it’s similar to the title song’s message, “Always Have Hope”, but the world depicted in this song is a bit worse and more realistic. Although it looks simple at first glance, it seems like a lot of people can sympathize with the tension and nuance of this song.
