New dreamy R&B from Nao Yoshioka, and a production team who’ve collaborated with H.E.R., Jhené Aiko, and Mac Miller.
Wave is the follow up to previous single Tokyo 2020 and is a fittingly warm aural accompaniment to the end of summer.
Nao has enjoyed a lengthy musical relationship with Musicman Ty, who’s behind the production on Wave. He’s worked on some of her most memorable tracks, including I Love When in 2016 and Got Me in 2019. Miki Tsutsumi is on the mixdown (H.E.R. and Jhené Aiko) and mastering is courtesy of legendary engineer Tatsuya Sato.
Nao explains that the theme of this song is about a new kind of love in an age of respect for diversity, and talks about a mature love that respects each person’s own way of life.
