Song Production Information
Since everyone seems to like it, let's make a heavy, original rap. By the way, the punctuation for "D.A.N.C.E.!" was inspired by that of "T・A・I・Y・O".
"D.A.N.C.E.!" is different from the intensity we see in "太陽〜T・A・I・Y・O〜"; I feel like it lets me show another side of myself. When you let the easy-going club rhythm flow into your bodies and start dancing, that's "D.A.N.C.E.!". It's the kind of song you might hear and get stuck in your head while you're passing by a club. "The things you worry about are a big deal sometimes, but it's not wrong to put the things you want first sometimes, so let's go the way we want to do things! Let's dance all night ton~ight!" That's what this song's about. I think it's a song that can help even people who worry all the time cheer up. Everyone listen, dance, and have fun! That's why we made this song ♪
