"It's all Love!" is a collaboration single by Koda Kumi and her younger sister misono. The single was originally set to be released on March 4, 2009, but was pushed back to March 31. The single charted at #1 on Oricon, making it Kumi's third consecutive number-one single and misono's first number-one single, and stayed on the charts for eleven weeks.[1] It was released in CD, CD+DVD and CD [FanClub Ed.].[2]

Along with the sisters' collaboration song, the two other songs on the single were sung solo by each sister: faraway was performed by Kumi and Tenbin ~Tsuyogari na Watashi x Yowagari na Kimi~ was performed by misono. However, faraway contained a corresponding music video.

The single is certified Gold for shipment of 100,000 copies and "It's all Love!" certified platinum for full-length cellphone downloads.
