Gekikara LOVE / Now Now Ningen / Konna Hazu ja Nakatta! (激辛LOVE/Now Now Ningen/こんなハズジャナカッター!; Extremely Spicy LOVE / Now Now People / It Wasn't Supposed To Be Like This!) is BEYOOOOONDS' 2nd single. It was released on March 3, 2021 in 7 editions: 3 regular and 4 limited.[1] The first press of the regular editions include a random trading card of 13 kinds depending on the jacket (39 in total). The limited editions include an event lottery serial number card.

"Gekikara LOVE" is a Japanese cover of the 1982 song "Dracula's Tango (Sucker For Your Love)" by the group Toto Coelo. The BEYOOOOONDS version interprets it as a song about a spicy love.

"Vitamin ME" is a song promoting the KAGOME ONEDAY vegetable drink as part of the KAGOME GO! ME Project.

"Gekikara LOVE" was used as the opening theme song for the Nagasaki International Television show AIR for the month of March 2021.[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The single was announced on December 25, 2020, with "Now Now Ningen" being first performed in the BEYOOOOONDS Premium episode of the show Hello! Project presents... "premier seat" on the same day.
  • The single was released on the same day as the DVD for their musical, Arabeyooooonds Nights.
  • This is the first release to credit Hirai Miyo, Kobayashi Honoka and Satoyoshi Utano as the unit SeasoningS.
  • The Regular Edition C and Limited Edition C covers form a cohesive image when the latter is placed directly above the former.
  • Songwriter Hoshibe Sho wrote the lyrics for "Gekikara LOVE" in early 2020 after management asked him to write translated lyrics for "Dracula's Tango (Sucker For Your Love)". The first recording did not include Kiyono Momohime using a talk box at first, but Hoshibe and the sound engineer decided to add it in after seeing her perform at Hello! Project presents... "Solo Fes!".[8]
  • The lyrics of "Konna Hazu ja Nakatta!" feature indirect references to several idols within and outside of Hello! Project.
