"It's all Love!" is a collaboration single by Japanese singer-songwriters Koda Kumi and Koda Misono. The single was originally set to be released on March 4, 2009, but was pushed back to March 31. The single charted at #1 on Oricon, making it Kumi's third consecutive number-one single and misono's first number-one single. It stayed on the charts for eleven weeks.

Information[edit]

It's all Love! is a collaboration single between Japanese sisters Kumi and Misono Koda. It charted #1 on the Oricon Singles Charts charts, becoming Kumi's third consecutive number-one single (seventh overall) and misono's first number-one single. It remained on the Oricon charts for eleven weeks.[1] This was the first time since 1968 with siblings releasing a single together to chart.

The single had been long-awaited by Japanese fans, due to both Koda sisters being musicians under the same label, Avex, despite the sisters having differing musical styles.[2] Kumi released music predominantly under the R&B and pop musical genres, while misono released music predominantly under the rock genre.[3]

It was released as a standard CD, a CD+DVD combo and a limited edition fan club edition.[4] At some local Tower Records stores, the single was paired with a poster as a first-come, first-served promotion.

Along with the sisters' collaboration song, there were two other songs on the single, each performed solo by each sister: "faarway" was performed by Koda Kumi and "Tenbin ~Tsuyogari na Watashi x Yowagari na Kimi~" (天秤~強がりな私×弱がりな君~ / Balance ~Strong Me x Weak You~) was performed by misono. However, only "faraway" contained a corresponding music video. misono had previously released the music video for "Tenbin ~Tsuyogari na Watashi x Yowagari na Kimi~" on her single Kyukon ~Yaruki•Genki•Sono Ki no Nekko~/?cm, although the song was not included on the CD.[5]

Despite "It's all Love!" being a shared song, it was not placed on misono's corresponding album Me.[6]

The single was certified Gold for shipment of 100,000 copies and "It's all Love!" was certified platinum for full-length cellphone downloads.

Packaging[edit]

It's all Love! was released in three editions:

  • CD: contains six musical tracks.
  • CD [Fan Club Edition]: contains two musical tracks and a poster.
  • CD+DVD: contains six musical tracks, two music videos and two making videos.

Promotional Advertisements[edit]

"It's all Love!" was used as the ending theme to Nippon TV's Sukkiri!! (スッキリ!! / Refreshed!!).[7]

"faraway" was used as the theme for the film Subaru (昴), to which fellow label-mates TVXQ (Tohoshinki) performed the song "Bolero" in the film's bar scene.[8] The movie is named after the ballerina lead named Subaru. It was released on March 20, 2009.
