"Wakuteka Take a Chance" (ワクテカ Take a chance, Wakuteka Tekachansu[1], "*trembing with excitement and eagerness* Take a Chance) is the 51st single by the Japanese female idol group Morning Musume, released in Japan on October 10, 2012.[2][3]

History[edit]

The title song was premiered on YouTube, when on August 31, 2012, a dance rehearsal performance of it was uploaded to the Morning Musume official channel.[4][5] The shooting of the music video itself was delayed due to Ayumi Ishida's and Haruka Kudo's injuries.[6]

About a week later, another video of the dance was uploaded. This time, it was performed by the dance teachers of Morning Musume. As Morning Musume producer Tsunku explained, he wanted to show what his true intentions for the dance were and the teachers' performance captured the true atmosphere and allowed viewers to understand the concept.[2]

Release details[edit]

The single will be released in seven versions: a regular edition and six limited editions: A, B, C, D, E, and F.[6]

The Limited Editions A, C, and E will come with a bonus DVD containing a special version of the music video for the song "One Two Three", while the Regular Edition and the Limited Editions B, D, and F will be CD-only.[7]

Also, all the limited editions will include an entry card for the lottery to win a launch event ticket.[7]
