Though Seiko and Mariya have been in the music industry for a long time, the first encounter between the two legends did not take place until July last year. Seiko requested Mariya to write a song for her 30th anniversary.

Seiko’s 76th single is the first song written by another female artist since “Shanghai Love Song” for which Akiko Yano provided the lyrics in 2000.
