Hide and Seek is the leading track of Japanese star Namie Amuro's 2007 album Play. It is one of the two new songs (the other being "Hello") to have a music video and is being used to promote the album. It has dance, hip hop, and R&B tones and has a synthesized voice in the verses. Namie Amuro has stated in an interview that Hide & Seek was the perfect song to open the album because of its "marching band" feel at the beginning of the song. Amuro won the "Best R&B Video" prize for the song at the MTV Video Music Awards Japan 2008.[1]
