The world's top artist Bruno Mars won 6 awards in 3 main categories at "The 60th Grammy Awards". EXILE ATSUSHI will sing the first ever Japanese language cover of Bruno Mars' popular ballad "Just The Way You Are"!!
Apart from the song "More..." created in collaboration with ATSUSHI's friend Nathan Morris from Boyz II Men, the B-side tracks also include 3 English songs which were produced overseas!
The DVD contains 4 music videos which were filmed in New York and Los Angeles!!
This super splendid maxi single can be called EXILE ATSUSHI's compilation work after his study abroad!!

  • "Just The Way You Are" is Bruno Mars' debut single released in July 2010.
    The song topped the US Billboard Charts for 4 weeks in a row and peaked at number one on "World Digital Song Sales TOP 10 in 2011" with 12.5 million downloads (announced by International Federation of Phonogram and Videogram Producers).

  • ATSUSHI has a lot of respect for Bruno Mars and thinks that "he is one of the most talented musicians in the world with a good taste in music."
    As ATSUSHI has been working in the music studio day after day, the Japanese lyrics of the chorus part of this song suddenly came into his mind and he wrote the lyrics for this song right away.
    "If I sing it in Japanese, I will be able to convey the emotions contained in this song to more Japanese people and pass a warm message to everyone."
    With this idea, ATSUSHI wrote Japanese lyrics for this song and created this cover!

  • ATSUSHI has sung the cover song to Bruno, thus creating the opportunity for the interaction between them. ATSUSHI watched Bruno's live show which was held in Washington D.C. at the end of last year and they met for the first time there.
    Bruno welcomed ATSUSHI warmly and said:
    "I am very happy to meet a Japanese super star. I feel proud that you will sing a cover of my song 'Just The Way You Are'. Thank you!"
    The two took a photo together and ATSUSHI presented a gift, Japanese sake, to Bruno who enjoys drinks.
    After that, when ATSUSHI was recording the song in Los Angeles, Bruno sent rum to him as a present in return.

  • Except "Just The Way You Are", the rest 3 songs are all in English. ATSUSHI wants to show his achievements of studying abroad and hopes that there is a chance for his songs to appear on American radio and cable TV... He pin such hopes on these songs.

    "I think of you" was created in Atlanta with producer T.KURA who composed the music for EXILE's "I Wish For You".
    "More..." was created in Tampa with Nathan Morris, leader of the world's top vocal group "Boyz ll Men", whom ATSUSHI has been a friend with for more than 10 years.
    "Do You Remember" was created in Hawaii with ATSUSHI's friend Pochi from JP LAM.

  • When I first listened to this song, I thought it was so beautiful.
    I feel honored to sing the first ever Japanese language cover of Bruno Mars' hit song "Just The Way You Are". I did this cover with all my heart.

    The Japanese language cover was almost cancelled after the production had already started because of the licensing. However, I had the chance to ask Bruno myself and he said it was a wonderful idea, thus allowed me to do this cover.

    All the dots were eventually connected and I am sincerely thankful to Bruno who let me experience such a miracle.

    It is destiny for me to sing this song.

    "You are amazing just the way you are." It is the message contained in this song and I hope that everyone who watches the music video will understand.
    Please enjoy it!
