AKB48 17th Single announced [Heavy Rotation]

Sorry for the late update. I've been bombarded with projects, tests and homework for the past week, and next week is filled too.

AKB48's next Single will be released on 18 August 2010 and its titled [Heavy Rotation]. In the Single are two new songs; the Senbatsu A side and Undergirls B side, as well the two tie-in songs used in the 7-11 CM and the Kagome Koreichi CM. The CMs and full songs are below the jump. The Issho ni Koreichi! Video is probably the video of each member drinking the vegetable juice 'with you'. There was a video of AKB performing Lucky Seven somewhere but unfortunately it got deleted from YouTube.....

Type A, Type B

Wow at covers. This surpasses Ponytail to Shushu as the most ecchi AKB single cover. Forgive me when I say this but I don't like the covers. Even the RIVER & Kamikyoku Tachi covers are better than this. Their colourful but too messy, especially Type B. Theatre ver. covers are the ones with the cat ears, but the picture is too small to use so I can't show it here.
