Odds are you find yourself stuck at home at this instance, or you are probably getting ready to spend a significant chunk of time holed up in your residence. It’s a weird world we find ourselves in! Keeping entertained during these periods of self-isolation is critical, and one creator continuing to deliver a steady stream of content to the world is virtual YouTuber Kizuna AI. She continues to upload videos finding her playing the role of a bartender and getting spooked by video games. Plenty courtesy of the country’s top virtual idol to hold you over.
That includes a new song, “the MIRACLE,” featuring dual production from Mizuno Yoshiki and Yunomi. It’s the latest musical number to come from AI, who has worked with a wide variety of creators from Japan’s electronic community to construct a bubbly electro-pop sound. No deviations here, as the pair build her a number that builds up to a big digi release right in her wheelhouse. Watch the video below.
The one swerve offered up by “the MIRACLE” is a bit more room for drama. Up until now, AI’s songs skipped along from the opening note, opting for a continuous bounce that only grows more ecstatic at the chorus. This time, everything before the hook unfolds at a pace that almost dips into ballad territory, complete with space for AI to deliver vocals eyeing the sky and strings surrounding her. It’s just as much a surprise coming from the producers working on it, especially Yunomi, who tends to favor a swifter style.
This isn’t Kizuna AI trying to become Ayumi Hamasaki, however. After all that lift, “the MIRACLE” gives itself over to a busier hook far more fitting for the virtual YouTuber (and the artists building the track). She shows some new tricks here, but still knows what she does best. Which, at a strange moment like this, is for the best.
