B’z J-WAVE Radio Segment Translation

Posted on July 17, 2012 by Jd- in News, Translations

Koshi: Good afternoon to everyone who tuned into J-WAVE HOLIDAY SPECIAL: PEPSI NEX presents ALL TOGETHER NOW. I'm Koshi Inaba.
Tak: And I'm Tak Matsumoto.
Koshi: So, today's topic is what you could enjoy with somebody, what could get you excited. In other words: "Together!". What we've been producing as B'z together with everyone else's effort is the latest installment in our series of Pepsi NEX commercials.
Tak: Right. I'm sure you've seen it. It conveys a summer feeling and is really bright!
Koshi: Yeah. There was a concert scene in a country to the south and everybody was standing around.
Tak: The main point of the commercial was our live performance and a lot of people would just stream into the audience.
Koshi: It looked just like a normal live performance. Everyone was getting excited about it. We all created a "Together", indeed.
Tak: That's right.
Koshi: If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to switch on the TV. You should see it if you zap through the channels a bit.
Tak: Yes. (laughs)
Koshi: Feel free to watch it. The song that's playing in the commercial is one we've produced by the title of "Love Bomb". It's a song you've all probably heard already, because it's the English version of a hit song we released in 2005, "Ai no Bakudan". The song didn't just receive an English version but has also been re-recorded.
Tak: Yeah.
Koshi: In other words, we've used a re-recorded song for this commercial.
Tak: Yeah, but I have to say I enjoyed re-recording an old song from years ago and seeing how it turned out.
Koshi: That's true. Right when we were working on it, Pepsi approached us with their summer version of a commercial and I think they were a perfect match. Now, please have a listen to "Love Bomb".

“Love Bomb” To Be New Pepsi NEX Song

Posted on July 11, 2012 by Tobias in News

The interview with B'z in the latest issue of the B'z official fanclub magazine Be With! reveals that "Love Bomb" will be the next Pepsi Nex title song. While it is not known that this is in fact an English version of Ai no Bakudan(=Love Bomb), it should be safe to assume that it is.

Koshi also mentions that "Love Bomb" came up while working on songs. It looks like B'z is indeed working on an English album.

There's no word on a release date for "Love Bomb" so far... stay tuned!
