Tsunku’s comments about the single:[1]

"This is their debut song. We’d been told that if they didn’t bring on the similar result as the debut single of “Morning Musume”, their careers were already finished before even starting. To my greatest joy and relief, the girls showed an amazing result of placing themselves on the first place of Oricon Chart during the same week of the release. That’s when they started walking on a road to the brighter future. For me, I had been revising the song over and over until very last minute. The girls came back from the audition/training in San Francisco and the song was ready for them just in time. I was trying to create the latest, brand-new sound for this era."

The members were interviewed on how to sing this song perfect at karaoke.

Kominato: Basically, the faking (adding "wow" and "yeah" during the intro and throughout the song) is what makes it exciting. Among us, RuRu is the fake queen. So everybody please try to do the faking too.

RuRu: The key is to not sing too hard.

Inaba: When someone is singing the "Please kiss" chorus, if everyone else chants along, it gets even more exciting!

Shinoda: I think you should try to copy the opening. Especially, try to practice the "A" melody from the first half.
