  • This is the first Morning Musume single to not feature any 1st generation member, and the first single to not feature Iida Kaori. This is also last single to feature Yaguchi Mari and Ishikawa Rika, and the last single before the addition of 7th generation member Kusumi Koharu.
  • "Osaka Koi no Uta" is sung in Osaka dialect.
  • 4th generation member Ishikawa Rika gave a comment about the single on YouTube.
  • The center for this single is Takahashi Ai.
  • This is the first single in which Yoshizawa Hitomi was leader. It was supposed to be Yaguchi Mari's first single as leader of Morning Musume, but she resigned from Morning Musume two weeks before it was released. This led to some disparities in television appearances. Some performances were filmed in advance and included Yaguchi, while Yoshizawa performed leadership duties for all events after the single was released.
  • In the Morning Musume Happy 8ki Audition, "Osaka Koi no Uta" was one of the songs used in the third round and the fourth round, which now former member Mitsui Aika had to sing in front of a live audience in the latter round.
  • This was Morning Musume's lowest selling single until Chokkan 2 ~Nogashita Sakana wa Ookiizo!~.
  • Tsunku sang his own version of "Osaka Koi no Uta" for his album TYPE2.
