Yuna Ito – Koi wa Groovyx2

1. Koi wa groovyx2
2. Mafuyu no Seiza
3. miss you – Hawaiian Breeze Remix –
4. Koi was groovyx2 -Instrumental-

Yuna Ito’s 12th single, Koi wa groovyx2, uses a big band brass for a fun and upbeat track. Yuna’s vocals are really great, but that’s probably the best thing about it. I mean, it’s certainly fun to listen to a couple of times, but I tire of it quickly. The chorus is not bad, the high notes are quite good but generally, it gets annoying after awhile. The cover is gorgeous, though.

Yuna Ito – miss you

1. miss you
2. BREEEEEZIN!!!!!!!
3. Urban Mermaid -Bittersweet Movement Blood-I Riddimix-
4. miss you -Instrumental-

Yuna Ito’s 11th single is a mid-tempo ballad with a stunning arrangement. The first few times I listened to it, I wasn’t too taken by it, but I’ve come to really love it. One time the chorus was stuck in my heard but I couldn’t remember what song it was and it was really driving me crazy but then I remembered and appreciate it so much more now. The verse is really beautiful but it’s the chorus that really shines. The repetition like ‘masugu ni masugu ni’ is lovely and Yuna’s vocals are just gorgeous.

Yuna Ito x Celine Dion – Anata ga iru Kagiri ~A WORLD TO BELIEVE IN~

1. Anata ga Iru Kagiri ~A WORLD TO BELIEVE IN~
2. Anata ga Iru Kagiri ~A WORLD TO BELIEVE IN~ (U.S.A. Mix)
3. Anata ga Iru Kagiri ~A WORLD TO BELIEVE IN~ (Yuna Ito Solo Ver.)
4. Anata ga Iru Kagiri ~A WORLD TO BELIEVE IN~ (Instrumental)

I’ve always thought that Yuna Ito has one of the best voices in the J-pop industry and now I know, I’m not the only one! Yuna participated in a Celine Dion tribute album, singing “My Heart Will Go On,” and Celine Dion heard her version and was so impressed with Yuna’s vocals that she invited Yuna to do a duet with her. Thus, Anata ga Iro Kagiri ~ A WORLD TO BELIEVE IN~ was born. It was released on January 16, 2008 and peaked at #8 on the weekly charts. It has currently sold just over 21,000 copies.
