TriviaEdit

  • It is 1 of the 4 Morning Musume singles that sold more than 1,000,000 of copies.
  • 4th Generation member Ishikawa Rika gives a comment about the single on YouTube.
  • As of February 2016, it is the third highest viewed official music video on Morning Musume's YouTube channel with over 5,000,000 views, surpassed only by Ren'ai Hunter and Wagamama Ki no Mama Ai no Joke. Overall, it is 1 of 46 music videos for a single that has reached over 1,000,000 views.
  • This is the eleventh and last single of Nakazawa Yuko as leader of Morning Musume. She left the group to fully pursue her solo career and reach other goals of hers before she turns 30 (she was 28 at the time). It was speculated that the direction Morning Musume was going in, and the fact that so many young people (4th generation) joined the group, that Nakazawa decided to leave.
  • It is a featured song in the Japanese version Just Dance.
  • First press: an 8-page booklet.
  • Their 11th single was actually intended to be Say Yeah!: Motto Miracle Night,, but as it got rather luke-warm feedback from fans when played on radio, Tsunku changed his mind.
