Covered by LANGYI (WARPs UP)
The new release is a cover of ‘Eden’ by MONKEY MAJIK, which was used as the ending theme during the second season of ‘Fruits Basket’. After seeing the video ahead of its release, the members of MONKEY MAJIK heaped praise on the new cover.
MONKEY MAJIK comment
Love how standout and clear LANGYI’s voice is!
Thank you and very glad to see this heart warming cover of “Eden”!
The song’s Japanese lyrics were challenging for Chinese singer LANGYI to pronounce, but he gave it his all, singing a message of hope and determination for the future.
In this series of releases, LANGYI, a member of WARPs UP, has been performing covers of multiple theme tunes from the anime series ‘Fruits Basket’. The first release was a cover of WARPs UP’s own song ‘Pleasure’, which was followed by a cover of ‘Again’, originally sung by Beverly, who praised LANGYI’s version as a “wonderful cover”. Recently the two artists met for their first joint Instagram Live broadcast.

They aim to create a new world that reflects their values, transcending existing genres and boundaries. The Chinese-Japanese group WARPs UP are one of the various units under the WARPs umbrella.
