“aoppella!?” Original Songs Part 2 “Come on up, Baby” MV Premieres!
The newest “aoppella!?” original song “Come on up, Baby” features lyrics by Kanata Nakamura, composition by Ryo Takahashi, and arrangement by zakbee. The song is performed by the Kanadezaka Private High School a cappella group FYA’M’.
Prior to the release, the composer Ryo Takahashi said “This was a song created with the intention of showing the listener how one can feel closeness, warmth, and complexity through the power of voices alone.” And further commented “The song creates a mature atmosphere centering on deep tones. This smooth and slightly untamed song is a perfect fit for FYA’M’.”
The students sing about life and love in an R&B rhythm and groove. The song opens with the lines “Count on me, Baby” and continues with “We want you to believe in us and follow our lead” expressing the passion of FYA’M’.
In addition, Daiki Hamano’s (voice of Yui Nekoyashiki) stellar bass performance and the voice percussion by Shugo Nakamura (voice of Fukami Shinkai) are not to be missed!
The cool and stylish FYA’M’ music video also features the students in casual clothing. See the energy of the characters as they depart from the classroom to take on a night on the town. Get a glance at each student’s own unique style out of uniform!

“aoppella!?” is KLab’s latest original multimedia music project built on the themes of “youth” and “a cappella”!
It was on that unforgettable day that the boys found themselves changed.
In front of them were ordinary high school students just like them. There were no flashy costumes or musical instruments.
But the moment they began to sing a surreal harmony filled the air and the crowd went wild.
“We want to sing like that! We want to shine, too!”
High school students captivated by the art of a cappella aim for the top in the exclusive high school a cappella contest, “Aoppella”.
They try to perfect their pitch as the show is about to begin!
