"Body Feels Exit" (stylized as Body Feels EXIT) is Namie Amuro's debut solo single on the Avex Trax label. Released nine days after her only album with former label, Toshiba-EMI, "Body Feels Exit" debuted in the top three and would be her first of 24 consecutive top ten solo singles.

Information[edit]

"Body Feels Exit" can be considered as her third single because she featured exclusively on "Stop the Music" and "Taiyou no Season," her two previous singles with the Super Monkey's. It also marks the beginning of the collaboration between Namie and Tetsuya Komuro. The song can be described as an upbeat dance track. "Body Feels Exit" was a huge hit at the time and still today is one of the singer's most popular songs and a fan favorite. The original version of the song did not appear on her first studio album, Sweet 19 Blues, but featured on her first greatest hits compilation 181920.

The single was certified platinum by the RIAJ for 400,000 copies shipped to stores.[1]

Taito ad campaign[edit]

The song was used as background music in 8 commercials for TAITO to promote the X-55 model. Amuro appeared in all ad campaigns.[2]
