Song Production Information
CANDY was originally made to have vocals laid over the song.
CANDY☆ is a pre-production version made to hand off to a vocalist.
CANDY☆'s arrangement differs from CANDY♥, having a lot of unrefined parts given that it's a pre-production version, but the song itself is brimming with a natural power.
