|Jamiroquai singles chronology|
"Seven Days In Sunny June" is the second single from British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai's sixth studio album, Dynamite. Written by lead singer Jay Kay and new keyboardist Matt Johnson, the track is considered to be a throwback to the old acid jazz sound upon which Jamiroquai made its name. The song is, in effect, a tale of unrequited love. The song peaked at #14 on the UK Singles Chart. The song was also used in the soundtrack for the film The Devil Wears Prada. The video features the band having a party in a garden, where they do random things, such as riding mopeds, having ketchup lowered from a helicopter, and throwing confetti at each other.
In the radio edit, the word "bomb" in "drop the bomb on me" is cut out - the song was released in August 2005, just one month after the 7/7 terrorist attack in London.

In the song's videoclip, Jay Kay changes his clothing 7 times, representing the 7 days of the week in June. One of the garments he uses is a Peru-national-football-team-inspired jacket. The original jersey was used by the Peruvian team during the 70s and was awarded by ESPN as the "Best World Cup jersey of all time".
