Some Information about the CD
The possible duo/trio singles were announced on April 4, 2020 as one of the seven parts to Aqour’s 5th Anniversary: Jimo Ai! Take Me Higher Project. Moreover, voting for the different combinations of duo/trios were held from April 16, 2020 to April 30, 2020. Finally, the winner, combination J (Hanamaru/Ruby, Kanan/Mari, You/Riko, and Dia/Chika/Yoshiko), was announced on June 29, 2020.
The Aqours Winter Vacation Vol. 2 CD will come out on December 9, 2020.
I was very excited to see the announcement of the new duo/trio CD. The last time we had duo/trio singles were during the summer a few years ago. This time, the fight over the combinations were intense. Ultimately, J won from the combination pool. There were many negative feelings around that combination, especially Kanan and Mari’s duo. However, when the previews came out, Kanan and Mari’s duet knocked everyone out of the park. Their song was a beautiful song that makes people feel very nostalgic. Clearly, nobody was expecting that, but Kanan and Mari served us well.
I am very excited to hear the full versions of each song when they come out!
