This is probably one of the worst Kuu covers in the history of Kuu releases. She has a tan that doesn’t suit her green eye shadow and look at those gross nails. (uuuuggggggggggghhhhhh…)

Just be grateful that Chase didn’t fail epically. I actually kind of liked this song with those ear catching instrumentals. And of coruse, there’s my dose of Kuu’s ad-libbing skills. Anyways, the energetic arrangement still doesn’t seem to be in synch with the vocals since she kind of sings off beat during some part of the song but otherwise, it’s a good song from Kuu. (pssst, also check out the instrumental version! It’s worth the listen!)

Just by reading the title, Heat Feat. MEGARYU I thought it was funny that heat and feat rhymed. Anyways, Megaryu’s rapping parts really annoyed me throughout the song but at least that’s the only downside of this Arabian oriented B-side. I surprisingly liked this song although the arrangement sounded like it’s all over the place with all of the switching instruments. My favorite part is Kuu’s rapping, though.

    Totally agree with you on the cover… it’s a hot mess. At least the song is good =]
