For this release, she is using Island Def Jam as her label, under the name of simply Utada, rather than Hikaru Utada which was used for her Japanese releases. This was originally released as an exclusive download single, though was later released as a DVD single in Japan. This song has been used in several Nintendo DS endorsements featuring Utada. There was a promo single for Easy Breezy that was sent to radio stations that features an exclusive radio edit of the song. The cover is the same as for the DVD single.
