First Music Game Appearance: DDRMAX2 -DanceDanceRevolution 7thMIX-
Other Music Game Appearances:
Late at night when you're all alone Heart would say, pick up the phone But he belongs to someone else You wanna keep his number for yourself You check your feelings deep inside The kind of love that's so hard to find Gotta keep it all for myself Don't wanna share it with somebody else Nobody knows what goes on when we are all alone I know what I feel, it's oh so real We are secret lovers Hope no one discovers See you every day Secret hideaway Just around the way Feels so good to me 'cause No one's ever seen us What we have, taboo A secret rendez-vous Sneakin' with my baby Weekend, don't say maybe We throw away the key It's our fantasy Only you and me I hope no one discovers That we are undercover lovers What we have, taboo A secret rendez-vous, yeah

Song Production Information
I've always been an R&B freak, and Secret Rendez-vous was honestly a song I created with that feeling. R&B seems to be unsuitable for DDR due to its slow groove, but there's no reason why you can't dance to it. But even in DDR...
I still believe that the relationship between R&B and DDR has a lot of potential.
CS Information Data
"Secret Rendez-vous" by DIVAS is the newest R&B track from the same group behind "BABY BABY GIMME YOUR LOVE". "Secret Rendez-vous" pours with soulful emotion and excellent female vocals.
I tried to make a promotional video-like production! I did my best to give it a groovy feeling, so how was it? I'd be happy if you pay attention to JANET and TRACY's new outfits, which are a big change from their prior outfits.
The movie was very popular during production, and as a result, it became one of the demo songs. Songs with slow BPM in DDR tend to not be played a lot, but it's a very nice song, so by all means, please try and play it at least once (or two and three times)!
Those who played this song in the location test might know it, but the design of the still image is completely different between the location test and final versions.
The production is subdued and graphical, so I aimed to also draw the still image with that concept.
