The song is available now through digital platforms such as iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, and more.

If that weren’t enough, the duo has welcomed 3 dancers to perform with the group during their tour. Former Morning Musume member Sayashi Riho joined the duo on a couple of performances, which was completely out of the blue. Reports were mixed at the beginning about whether it was actually her or if it was a girl who looked like her, but that’s definitely Riho:

Reports came in that the 2nd dancer was Sakura Gakuin’s Fujihira Kano. The 3rd dancer will be revealed soon.
