4 hot wave is the thirty-second single by Koda Kumi released on 26th July 2006. It is Koda's first quadruple A-side single and includes the rock song 'Ningyo-hime' (人魚姫; Mermaid Princess), summery 'I'll be there', R&B dance track 'JUICY' and 'With your smile'. All four singles had their own music videos which linked together as a story. The single also included interludes which is a first for Koda. Like her previous singles, '4 hot wave' is released in CD and CD+DVD versions. The covers were shot in Morroco where Koda was shooting for her photobook MAROC, also released on the same day.

'4 hot wave' reached #1 daily but finished at #2 behind KinKi Kids, nearly breaking their streak of consecutive #1's. It sold 207,484 in its first week, giving Koda the title of highest female debut week sales for 2006 and eventually becoming her highest selling single overall.

4 hot wave is certified Platinum by RIAJ for shipment of 250,000 copies.
