This is a less aggressive, more radio-friendly mix. Both the drums and synths are dropped further back in the mix while the acoustic guitars are brought forward. In addition, synth brass stabs that precede the chorus that were less prominent in the “Risky Style” version are brought forward as well. The song’s music video was shot in New York City. The video’s plot revolves around lead singer Koshi Inaba bicycling all over New York City and constantly running into an African-American woman who he worked out with at a dance studio. He eventually gets to dance with her again at the end of the video. There are also clips of Inaba and guitarist Matsumoto performing the song on the streets. She appears in all of the Film Risky videos shot in New York, but this is the only video in which she is prominent.
