Uh-oh…this is something expected but still surprising.
It was reported that Sexy Zone will be releasing their 7th single, titled: “Otoko never give up” (Man never give up) this September. The said single was recorded with only the three older members of the group- Sato Shori, Nakajima Kento, and Kikuchi Fuma. The three members will also have a new song recital at Yoyogi First Gymnasium.
During the single’s announcement, the exclusion of Marius Yo and Matsushima Sou, from the single was met with surprise. Nakajima commented that they just want to show various forms of Sexy Zone and Kikuchi added that their success is likely to spread toward the two (Marius and Matsushima), and will increase once they became 5 again.
The management also clarified that Marius and Matsushima didn’t withdraw from the group.
