Information[edit]

"Love the Island" was used in TV commercials for Japanese tourism in Guam. Ami starred those commercials. The single debuted at number 5 in the Oricon Weekly Charts, selling 288,000 copies.

This was her first and only single of Ami Suzuki to be released in a mini CD single format.
