While it’s not news to see Nami cover something (she always does it seems nowadays…) Missing You marks two things for Nami, her first Korean cover turned to JPN (this is a cover of T-ara’s song “TTL (Time to Love) and her first collaborative song with Koreans (specifically Choshinsei, though they’re known in Korea as Supernova. Anyways the song actually stays pretty faithful (she doesn’t usually do this don’t forget), so it’s a solid track already. However the things that bothered me in the original are here as well and it’s Choshinsei….TERRIBLE. Add that very awkward opening and you get an alright cover…nothing like her SONY days, but passable.

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a remix hit a Nami single…last one was…well the stuff from her remix album basically. However, this remix of Missing You is kind of blah when compared to past remixes. All it feels like is that she took out the energy and beats and left this rather softer and more lighter backup. To me, it’s not really all that memorable and just seems fail-tastic for me.
Being the only single to represent “Ready”, Missing You ~Time To Love~ is a slight upgrade after her “STEP” singles, but only slight because she’s still far away from what she used to be and it shows on the Oricon charts. The thing is that her covering songs over and over is starting to feel a bit redundant since Nami has wanted to write more songs but she hasn’t really proved that yet since leaving SONY. I will say it’s catchy, but there’s some things she needs to work on. The remix though is bland though yeesh, hope this album will be more interesting…
