Information

"the end of shite" is the debut solo single released by YUKI. The title track was used as the CM song for the Toyota Motor Corporation's WiLL VS model. The single was written and produced by Higurashi Aiha, formerly of the Japanese rock band Seagull Screaming Kiss Her Kiss Her. "YUKI was a fan [of Higurashi]" and she contacted Higurashi looking for a "producer, songwriter, and musician [1]." At the time Higurashi had five songs written as she was getting ready to launch her own solo career, and she played the songs for YUKI. YUKI loved the songs, and used three of them for this single. Higurashi later recorded her self-cover of "the end of shite" on her debut solo single, "NEW LIFE".

The single reached the #6 on the Oricon charts and stayed on the charts for a total of six weeks. The single sold a total of 125,000 copies, making it YUKI's most successful single to date, as well as her only single to sell over one hundred thousand copies.
