I think it’s thanks to all of our fans, JAM, that we have been able to win first place from the debut single to this third one.I am grateful to various people and will continue to do my best! ■ Shosei Ohira
First of all, I would like to thank all the fans who support us because it is the first place in three consecutive works.
I’m really grateful because I think that the reason why we have been releasing works since our debut single is because our fans have always liked and waited for us.
As much as we get happiness in this way, we want to do our best to return happiness in our performances, songs, and various aspects! ■ Ruki Shiroiwa
It’s not easy to be number one in everything, and thank you so much for always taking us to number one in a limited number of people. I am honestly very happy. I always think that this is not the norm, and I would like to continue to walk and grow with you. (C) LAPONE ENTERTAINMENT
