Tracklisting
1. Te wo Tsunaide (手をつないで)
2. Rock Star
3. homegirl
4. Te wo Tsunaide (instrumental)

This is Younha’s 6th single and it was released on June 7, 2006. The single reached #50 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 2,639 copies. The title track was used as the ending theme song for the anime Jyu Oh Sei.

Just like K, Younha is a Korean who is more well known in Japan than in her home country (even though that is somewhat changing for her now). I was introduced to her music through her debut Japanese album Go! Younha and I was really impressed with her brand of piano soft rock. Te wo Tsunaide was her first new single since the release of that album. The song’s combination of low key piano chords and soft electric guitar is awesome and Younha’s rich voice complements the song extremely well. She has a powerful voice that still maintains its gentle qualities.

The single also features 2 very well done B-sides. Rock Star is very catchy and a fun pop song with nice, short riffs. It’s purely B-side material though.

The 2nd B-side is the very pretty piano based ballad homegirl. Younha is a great ballad singer and she also has a impressive vocal range (her high notes are to die for). However, I did find the harmonica to be a little grating at times.

Overall Rating

4½ stars

    she has an impressive talent for a girl of such young age. I love Younha through her debut Korean album. When it comes to cross-country artists, I’m always more on the native side. I did take a sneak peak at her BEST album, but no her debut Japanese album yet. Some of the tracks are awesome, but if one wants to hear the real thing in her music, definitely try “A perfect say to say I love you” <-her Korean album.

  2. You Rock!
