JYP's NiziU to drop 'Memories' with Universal Studios Japan in February


JYP Entertainment’s girl group NiziU will be the voice of theme park Universal Studios Japan’s new campaign song “Memories,” according to its agency.

The collaboration will be the group’s second project with the theme park since its 2021 song "Festa" was released to commemorate the park’s 20th anniversary.

"Memories" sends a message of everybody enjoying and creating happy memories, the agency said.

“Memories” will be available on music streaming platforms on Feb. 6.

Alongside the collaboration, the group is also set to have a song titled "Sweet Nonfiction" on the soundtrack for Japanese rom-com “Lovesick Ellie.” The film will be in theaters on March 15.

NiziU debuted in 2020 in Japan under JYP Entertainment. The group was formed as part of JYP Entertainment's “Globalization by Localization,” a project to localize the K-pop system in overseas markets, through a joint audition program “Nizi Project” with Sony Music Entertainment in June 2020.

The group consists of nine members: Mako, Rio, Maya, Riku, Ayaka, Mayuka, Rima, Miihi and Nina, who are all Japanese.

NiziU released its first Korean debut single “Press Play” on Oct. 30, 2023, with the lead track “Heartris.”
