Japanese pop singer Nissy released his new single ‘Say Yes’ today (April 30) – his second single release of 2021. This multifaceted song combines a comforting, light Western sound with lyrics that tell a story that is, well, a little on the strange side.
But it’s not only the lyrics. The music video that accompanies ‘Say Yes’ was also published today on YouTube, and it contains some unusual imagery.

The music video for ‘Say Yes’ continues the story from Nissy’s previous video, ‘Get You Back’, and while it is awash with fantastical and beautiful visuals at first glance, it also includes scenes that offer a glimpse of something more bizarre. Take a look at the video and discover it for yourself!
In addition, the video includes a dance routine performed on a specially made stage, making for an unmissable spectacle.
As with ‘Get You Back’, the dance steps for ‘Say Yes’ were choreographed by by Kazuki (s**t kingz), who took first place in the leading United States dance contest BODY ROCK in 2010 and 2011 as a member of s**t kingz; and by RIEHATA, who got her break as a backing dancer for Lady Gaga in 2010 and has since built an international career working with globally renowned artists such as BTS, TWICE and Chris Brown.
