NMB48 4th Single Titled [Nagiichi] + Senbatsu Members

NMB48 has announced the title and senbatsu for its 4th single, set to be released on May 9th. The single will be called [Nagiichi] (ナギイチ) which is short for Nagisa de ichiban kawaii GIRL!! (渚で一番かわいいGIRL!!/ the cutest girl on the shore/beach).

It was also announced that one of the couplings will be a solo song by Watanabe Miyuki. This will be the second solo for an NMB48 girl after Yamamoto Sayaka's Jungle Gym, which was a coupling on the last single Junjou U-19.

Senbatsu members for this single are:
Team N: Yamamoto Sayaka, Watanabe Miyuki, Yamada Nana, Fukumoto Aina, Ogasawara Mayu, Jonishi Kei, Shiroma Miru, Kotani Riho, Kadowaki Kanako, Yoshida Akari, Kondo Rina
Team M: Jo Eriko, Tanigawa Airi, Murakami Ayaka, Kinoshita Momoka, Yagura Fuuko

In: Yoshida Akari, Murakami Ayaka, Tanigawa Airi
Out: Kishino Rika, Kinoshita Haruna, Yogi Keira

On a side note, Arashi will release their new single Face Down on the same day as NMB48, which means it will be a tough battle for the girls to continue their Number 1 record.

The single is supposed to be a summery song and with that title, it just screams for a bikini PV. As for senbatsu, I am surprised Keira, Rikanyan and Haru are out but someone had to make room. On the other side, I am glad Airi is finally in. Anyways, summery is a new theme for NMB48 so I am curious how it will turn out.
