BoA releases the Japanese version of "Only One" via QR code

BoA will return to the J-pop industry with a special promotion.

BoA will release her new single "Only One" in Japan on February 27. The song, which is written by BoA, is the Japanese version of the title song "Only One" from her seventh EP released last summer in Korea. It has been one year and two months since BoA released a new song in Japan.

She will hold a special event to celebrate her return.

The Japanese Oricon reported, "BoA will release a new song in the form of a QR code floating on the surface." People can listen to the song by using their smart phones to read the QR code floating on the surface of coffee or cocktails. The QR code is made of natural food.

The Oricon says, "The "Only One" cocktail campaign started last November through five coffee shops in Tokyo."

BoA will hold her exclusive concert at the Olympic Park in Seoul on January 26 and 27. It will be her first exclusive concert in Korea in thirteen years since her debut in 2000.

Message from BoA:

"Hi everyone I'm BoA. The song that's streaming in this site is actually my new song "Only One". This song is a song about separation, as though you are visualizing scenes of separation in more detailed as the lyrics progress. As I think people who have experienced such separation even only for once before will certainly be able to sympathize with the contents of the lyrics and the tune is really easy to remember, everybody please listen to it repeatedly."

Here's the link for the song teaser! Sounded weird at first, but I've listened to it a few times now and getting used to the Japanese. I think it sounds good.. Only One does sound a bit more Japanes-ey in style as opposed to kpop. Hope the Japanese fans and general public love this!!

Sounds a lot better than the KOrean version, for some reason it flows better.

I've listened to the korean version of Only One so many times that I'll have to get used to it in Japanese, but I love it already. It's a beautiful song no matter what language it's in.
But what does 'Cocktail' mean? A more creative way of saying 2-sided single?
