Singer-songwriter YUI released her 20th single, “Green a.live“, on October 5th, and topped the Oricon Weekly Single Ranking by selling a total of 56,000 copies in its first week! This is her first time topping the single charts since “to Mother“, which was released in June of last year.
“Green a.live” is YUI’s first song that she wrote after the Tohoku Earthquake. Since the disasters, the singer has held acoustic lives at schools in stricken areas, and has been doing charity work through her lives. The title “Green a.live” means, “to live inside the earth“.
YUI expressed her happiness by saying, “I have so much gratitude for everyone who has always supported me. In this song, I was able to include the message I want to deliver, and my thoughts about how we shouldn’t forget our beginning. I want to move forward with everyone while enjoying everyday.”
