"Come With Me" (stylized as "COME WITH ME") is R&B-turned-pop singer-songwriter Kumi Koda's eighth domestic solo single. The single charted at #14 on Oricon and stayed on the charts for nine weeks.

Information[edit]

Come With Me is Japanese artist Koda Kumi's eighth domestic solo single and ranked #14 on the weekly Oricon Singles Charts, failing to perform as well as her previous single, real Emotion/1000 no Kotoba. The single charted for nine weeks.[1] Due to the low ranking, Kumi said how she felt she was unable to perform a hit song without a famous name attached.

The b-sides on the single were English versions of "real Emotion" and "1000 no Kotoba." These versions were not the ones that were included in the North American and European releases of the Final Fantasy X-2 video game, however; the English versions found in the game were sung by Jade Villalon from the group Sweetbox.[2] The lyrics in Kumi's original versions differ slightly from those used for Jade's version.

The single was also released as a 12" vinyl with the title track and remixes of "real Emotion" and "1000 no Kotoba."

Promotional advertisements[edit]

"Come With Me" was used in a television commercial for Choya Umeshu's "Ume jelly," which is a semi-sweet gelatinous dessert.[3]

Music video[edit]

The music video for "Come With Me" was centered around a beach party theme in Thailand. In the video, the speaking parts were subtitled in Japanese.

While the video was released publicly during the single's initial debut, it was not available to purchase until the release of her DVD feel.... The DVD was released the same day as the single's corresponding album feel my mind.
