"Alright!" is the seventh single released by Japanese singer Ami Suzuki under label Avex Trax. It was released in May 2006 in two formats, CD and CD+DVD, and the first pressings of the single (only the CD-Only edition) included a limited 32-page photobook.

Information[edit]

"Alright!" is an upbeat house song released for the summer of 2006. Its B-side is softer but with the same feeling (In fact the motto of the single is "Let your summer be alright!").

The song is arranged by Japanese arrangers Hal. This is her second song arranged by them after "To Be Free" from the "Little Crystal" single.

This is Suzuki's second single of 2006. After the poor success of the last single, "Fantastic", (#14) and remix album Amix World (#78), the single really didn't have much expectations of being a chart success.

Despite this, the song was used as the ending theme of the Japanese TV show Itadaki Muscle! as well as the "Power Play" track of TV show Ongaku Senshi Music Fighter for May.

Promotional video[edit]

The PV of the song is really different from Suzuki's previous ones from the new stage of her career in Avex. It shows her with two friends having a good time on summer (eating, shopping, etc.), and it doesn't have any special effects at all. It was filmed in Saipan.

Commercial endorsements[edit]

"Alright" was used by Toyota for the ist about two years and a half later. For the Scion xD CM, "Alright!" has no commercial endorsements.
