In the music video, the members of bless4, led by AKINO, perform a new dance choreography created by her younger brother member AIKI. Shooting was held at ten different locations in Tokyo, including Tokyo Station, Asakusa Kaminarimon, and Ameyoko. Depending on the location, the members change their costumes from medical workers and elementary school teachers to office workers and construction workers.
Comment from AKINO:
"It’s thanks to you listening (your ears) that we’ve been able to sing for so long (our years), and we will continue singing with these thoughts in our hearts! The album that will be released on March 24 is packed with 38 songs that showcase our history. Please get your hands on a copy! The music video, which only came 15 years later, is a combination of my 14-year old voice and my current dance moves! I hope you’ll watch the dance and try to imitate it! I love you guys♡"
