"RED SOUL BLUE DRAGON" is written for baseball player Daisuke Matsuzaka, a friend of EXILE ATSUSHI's who transferred to Chunichi Dragons this year. "Matsuzaka, a friend of the same age as me whom I have known for more than 15 years, will return after injury and recapture his glory. There is nothing I can do for him except music." On the basis of such thoughts, EXILE ATSUSHI put all his heart into this support song. EXILE ATSUSHI's friends DOBERMAN INFINITY, JAY'ED and MABU who share the same thoughts appeared as featuring artists.

In the music video, celebrities who were born in the 1980s and share EXILE ATSUSHI's perception of Matsuzaka appeared as featuring artists and cheered for Matsuzaka.
Short-distance race legend Shingo Suetsugu who won the silver medal in the 400m relay at Beijing Olympics also participated in the music video. He commented: "Matsuzaka and EXILE ATSUSHI work in different fields and they still shine in their respective fields. We are friends who work hard together in baseball, singing and racing ."

This music video was created based on an image of the black and white world in which baseball player Daisuke Matsuzaka competes. In such a world, the "red" color of RED DIAMOND DOGS and team color "blue" of Chunichi Dragons which Matsuzaka currently belongs to stand out in the video.

"White and black" and "red and blue" are opposite colors. With such color combinations, the world where light and darkness is decided by one ball is shown. A music video depicting Matsuzaka's life of winning and losing on the baseball court has been created!

EXILE ATSUSHI commented on the completed music video: "We used red and blue for the contrast and created an interesting music video through various ways. Those who participated in this music video are my drinking buddies and that's why we can unite together to cheer for Matsuzaka. And because of this, the filming was fun and everyone were in high spirits which were different from before. It has become an experience that I will not forget for the rest of my life."

Besides cheering for Matsuzaka, EXILE ATSUSHI also wants to "give power to everyone who listens to this song". We hope you can feel his love in this song!
