  1. Oh hey! I wanted to ask this when I read the article when it came out but I forgot. In your opinion, what kind of song would you hope they release for each unit? I really hope it’s something similar to the one they covered for Lil Happy because their vocal range really fit that genre and for Fyam, I hope they do a complete 180 from their first song. Not gonna lie but the first song was a shock. I didn’t expect them to go down that route for the first song but they nailed it! So what do you think on the kind of song they should go for next?

    • Hey @akashiakaashi! That’s an awesome question!

      I love it when groups/artists push themselves to perform music genres people wouldn’t usually think they’d be good as well as showcasing versatility. I love a good twist or surprise on the vocal end.

      Thus, I’d love it if FYAM went the emotional route for their next original song.
      With their balanced mix of high and lower toned singers, a solid mid-range plus percussion, I believe they can tackle ballads with no issue.

      Given how Lil Happy have a lineup of mostly tenors I’d love for them to put their emotional range to test and thus release a bittersweet ballad (something of similar tone to Aimer’s 六等星の夜).

      Now, if you ask me which songs I want both groups to cover… man I do have a lot of songs I believe would fit both groups (and would work well in an acappella arrangement).
      It would take a long post for me to go over all the songs and why those would fit each group xD
