2013 marks the 20th anniversary of the debut of TRF. The group already announced the release of the singles best album “TRF 20TH Anniversary COMPLETE SINGLE BEST” that goes on sale November 21, and now they have announced a second project to celebrate their anniversary. The project is a tribute mini-album sung by several idol groups, titled “TRF Respect Idol Tribute,” set for release on December 19.
In addition, Shoji Mei (TOKYO GIRLS’ STYLE), Suzuki Yuriya (Cheeky Parade), Tachibana Yurika (Idoling!!!), Hibi Mikoto (Dream5), and pour lui (BiS) are collaborating together as a special unit called IRF (Idol Rave Factory) to sing the first track on the album, which is a cover of TRF’s “BOY MEETS GIRL.” The five members also posed for a picture as a homage to the original “BOY MEETS GIRL” jacket cover, which was shot in Mexico. Although the IRF version was shot in a Tokyo studio, they showed their respect for TRF by saying that they also hope to someday reach the level where they can do a real shoot in Mexico as well.
The songs on the album are:
- BOY MEETS GIRL (IRF)
- EZ DO DANCE (Idoling!!!)
- Love & Peace Forever (iDOL Street)
- Overnight Sensation ~Jidai wa Anata ni Yudaneteru~ (TOKYO GIRLS’ STYLE]]
