DREAMIN’ is JASMINE’s 5th single and it was released on May 12, 2010. The single reached #38 on the Oricon Weekly Charts and sold 2,546 copies.

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this outfit somewhere on Sailor Moon

I’m rolling my eyes at you people who have been complaining about this song. Being her first ballad A-side, I think Dreamin’ is great. With an gospel inspired sound, it’s not your conventional Japanese ballad (besides some of Mika Nakashima’s stuff lol). I also felt that the song fully showcased JASMINE’s vocal capabilities because her voice was powerful, yet controlled. I was pretty impressed.

After such a sweet song, the transition into L.I.P.S. is kind of funny. The lyrics are funny too. I was cracking up at the “lip gross” and “tasty kimchee” lines. However, I forgive her because the music is hot. Similar to This Is Not A Game, the song mixes R&B and with some synth to make a fiery combination. Overall, this is JASMINE at her most sassy and it’s her best B-side since Koi.

There’s also a BUZZER BEATS remix of sad to say that appears as track 3. It’s mellow like the original but includes more beats. As far as remixes go, I thought this was pretty standard and nothing spectacular. At least it sounded nice. 

Pros: I think this single had what her others lacked…balance!
Cons: L.I.P.S. is silly but whatever.

BASICALLY…now it’s time for an album!

  1. It’s official you’re a Jasmine stan too.

  2. i like this single, even though “jealous” and “no more” are her best singles up to date.

  3. The picture at the end of the review is so HQ and pretty *.* I must hear L.I.P.S though ahaha. I haven’t gotten around to downloading the single.

  4. If by “silly” you mean “sublime”, then yeah you nailed “L.I.P.S”, dude. *loves the touch of Bollywood in the “curry” part too* :D

  5. lmao @ the Sailor Moon comment.

    Great review of a great single. I’m happy she balanced this single out more, as well.
    It’s hard to NOT be a Jasmine stan, lol

  6. “say to say [BUZZER BEATS Remix]” xD

  7. LOL I didn’t even see that. >_>

  8. Hot dang, its Neo Queen Serenity on the cover! lol! You always have me in stitches!

  9. I think I’ll have to check out the rest of the single for the “lip gross” 8D lol!

  10. omigosh, have you heard her singing Dreamin’ live? it’s absolutely breathtaking. i think it was even more powerful than ayaka O.o
