As part of Shiseido’s ANESSA Global Campaign Song
Following the recent release of their mega-viral hit, ‘Boom Boom Back,’ Japanese group BE:FIRST has just announced the release of their latest single, ‘Smile Again.’
With sophisticated, minimal music sensibilities, seven distinct vocals stand out in ‘Smile Again,’ filled with wistfulness and fleetingness.
Encapsulating fragility, determination, hope and acceptance accompanying a simple message in the song’s lyrics, ‘You are so beautiful,’ intrigues listeners to wonder about the many hidden implications and stories behind this one song.
As the group’s first love song to be released, ‘Smile Again’ has a beautiful melody and danceable development.
It invites listeners into a world of instant gratification by BE:FIRST and their passion for love and sorrow within its short yet meaningful 3 minutes duration. BE:FIRST dedicates strong love to its fans in this musical gem.
BE:FIRST welcomed an all-star team for their latest single, alongside Japanese rapper, singer-songwriter, producer and CEO of management company BMSG, SKY-HI, and Keita Tachibana from the renowned dance & vocal group w-inds.
In addition, JUNE from Korea joined as the music producer for ‘Smile Again.’ Regarding choreography for the music video, credits go to all four members of the influential Japanese dance and performance collective s**t kingz.
In addition, the group has choreographed dances for multiple Japanese and South Korean artists from Da-iCE, ØMI, and GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE, Super Junior-D&E, SHINee, NCT 127, and EXO, to name a few.
The accompanying music video for ‘Smile Again’ has been released via BE: FIRST’s Youtube channel.
Set in an airport, the music video features members of BE:FIRST in a drama-like scene of unspoken stories and relentless yearning in search of something close to their hearts.

The group will share more activities related to the ‘Smile Again’ release on their social media accounts in the upcoming weeks.
