「Sweet Impact」: “I tried to tell a story of a girl who is passionately in love. I think especially women are susceptible to changes when they’re in love.” BoA added that she had Michael Jackson aka her favorite artist in mind while shooting the video clip of the song.
「My Way, Your Way feat.WISE」: This is the first collaboration between the two artists. BoA says that she loves WISE’s rap and that he makes the song more “mature”
「LOSE YOUR MIND feat. Yutaka Furukawa from DOPING PANDA」: BoA and Yutaka met during m-flo’s live tour. She loved the way he played guitar. When she was preparing her LOSE YOUR MIND single, she suggested that he plays the Guitar in the song which -in her opinion- made the song more edgy and powerful.
「Girl In A Mirror」: BoA composed the song 2 years ago, during Girls On Top era more specifically. So, that explains the “Hip-Hop” style of the song. BoA says ” Even after two years, this song sounds cool, ne?”
「LOVE LETTER」 : BoA wrote this song along with Watanabe Natsumi. BoA says ” I hope that everyone would confess their feelings by sending a love letter, not an email *laughs*”
「ギャップにやられた！」: The idea of the song came to BoA after a discussion with her staff. She asked someone if he thinks that his wife is the ideal wife, he said “No!, I fell in a trap!” The song tells a story of a girl who fell in love with a man who didn’t turn to be her “ideal” man so, ギャップにやられた！
「Style」: This was going to be the B-Side of be with you. , but when BoA heard the final arrangements of the son she changed her mind. She said it was too good that she wanted it in her Album. Style was replaced by precious as be with you.’s coupling song.
「Smile Again」 : When BoA was writing the song, she was so tired that her eyes would automatically close! But, then, she was encouraged and finished writing the song. The composer of the song was impressed by the lyrics. He says” These words made me realize what I represent in this world”
BoA has mentioned that ‘THE FACE’ is the album(up till now) that she participated so much in the productions stages. Whether it is to select songs for listeners or for the style that she likes, she really tried to involve herself in all of the productions. For us, this album has the strongest feeling of ‘she and us'(the most intimate) out of all the albums thus far. Will ‘THE FACE’ be BoA’s greatest masterpiece to come? The answer depends on you.
