Overview[edit]

"Toi et moi" is French for You and Me. The song was used as the ending theme to the Japanese version of the second Pokémon movie, Revelation Lugia. Although she had already experimented with urban music in the past, this single is considered as her first real attempt at it. Despite that, this is her first single to have a more urban sound, and her step-away from dance-pop to urban-pop.
