It's been announced that AKB48's subunit DiVA covered H Jungle with t's (collaboration unit between comedy duo Downtown's Hamada Masatoshi and music producer Komuro Tetsuya) double million-selling single from 1995 "WOW WAR TONIGHT ~Tokiniwa Okoseyo Movement~".
DiVA is a dance&vocal unit formed back in 2011 with 4 of AKB48's 2nd generation members Akimoto Sayaka, Umeda Ayaka, Masuda Yuka, and Miyazawa Sae, but in the same year, they held an audition and new 6 members joined the group.
In January 2013, Masuda announced her withdrawal from the group, and they have become a 9-member unit.
Although Akimoto graduated from AKB48 in last August, she remained as a DiVA member.
This is DiVA's first new song in 2 years, since they last released "Lost the way" in March of 2012.
The members left comments like, "I'm really happy to be able to cover the song that everyone knows. I am sure our fans are quite surprised that our new song is a cover" (Miyazawa), "Thank you for waiting! I would like to show a side different from AKB48" (Umeda), "DiVA is the only place I can sing and dance, so I'm really grateful. Filming for music video makes me happy" (Akimoto).
The music video to the new song is available only on UULA (SoftBank mobile's smartphone app.), and it has not been decided at this moment if its CD will be released.
I was really surprise about this. I though they are already ignored by the management but I think because of this I can still root for the best vocal sub-unit of 48 family
