JKT48's 1st Single [RIVER] Will Release Next Month

JKT48 have officially announced that they will be releasing their first single [RIVER] next month. The single is still a translation of AKB48's single, not yet their original song. No exact release date or tracklist has been announced as of yet.

JKT48 first performed RIVER at a Heavy Rotation special show in the JKT48 Theater last week, and again just yesterday during the [AKB48 Group Rinji Soukai] Concert in Nippon Budoukan.

This will be the first time JKT48 is using the 16 member Senbatsu system for their songs. The songs in their previous album [Heavy Rotation] featured all the 23 members of Team J. The senbatsu members for RIVER will still only include members of Team J, but the members that made it into senbatsu are:
Devi Kinal Putri (captain)
Jessica Vania
Rena Nozawa
Gabriella Maragareth Warouw
Melody Nuramdhani Laksani
Rica Leyona
Nabilah Ratna Ayu
Delima Rizky
Shania Junianatha
Jessica Veranda
Rezky Wiranti Dhike
Stella Cornelia
Beby Chaesara Anadila
Ayana Shahab
Aki Takajo
Nakagawa Haruka

As JKT48 still does not have an original song, the system of releasing singles in Indonesia is very different. All of JKT48's previous singles were released digitally, and then compiled into 1 Heavy Rotation album which they recently released. RIVER is the first single to be release in a CD+DVD format, which surprised many JKT48 fans.

Recently, the JKT48 Trainees have also been performing Mirai no Kajitsu, a song specially for the 2nd generation of JKT48. It could likely be the coupling song of RIVER.
