"Won't Be Long" is a collaboration single by Japanese boy band Exile and Koda Kumi. It is a cover of the song originally sung by the Japanese band Da Bubblegum Brothers in the early 1990s. It is a midtempo song. Koda Kumi's album Black Cherry included two versions of this song (one remixed and another sung entirely by her), both different from the original version. The song was also featured on Exile's album Exile Revolution, this time featuring Exile and Never Land.

This song appeared on the Nintendo DS game Taiko no Tatsujin DS under its J-Pop section.

Other cover versions[edit]

In 1990s, Kwok Cheung Lee (李國祥) from Hong Kong ever covered this song with Cantonese and Mandarin-Chinese versions - "全為了你" (All for you) and "充滿光彩" (Fulfilled colors).
