Yura Yura / Gimme Gimme♥ (ユラユラ/ギミギミ♥) is BENI’s 16th single and it was released on May 5, 2010. The single reached #20 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 4,434 copies.
UGH SHE IS SO PRETTY.

BENI has done it again! Yura Yura is kind of similar to her last A-side bye bye and that means it’s UPBEAT (hooray!). The biggest difference between this song and bye bye would be the strings in the background since there’s the familiar synth and fingersnap beats. We also get treated a really catchy chorus, which I think is the strongest aspect of her songs.
The other A-side is a little slower side and has a fluffy, girlish atmosphere (I blame the cutesy chimes). Gimme Gimme♥ has a catchy hook too with that gimme gimme your love sotto line. It’s funny how people are getting Kiss Kiss Kiss vibes because this song sounds nothing like it. Check your ears, bitches. Anyway, I think Yura Yura is the better track but this is still good!
The DJ HASEBE remix of bye bye is a cool and chillout R&B take on the song. I liked it because it removes the synth of the original and adds constant beats. I’m glad that his remixes have been sounding less monotone lately.
And to top this review off, she has a NEW ALBUM out next month!
Pros: This is her first double A-side single and it’s a fantastic one.
Cons: Why should there be? Whateverrrrr.
BASICALLY…gimme gimme more BENI! ♥
