After Love -First Boyfriend- is a song by Crystal Kay, featuring Kaname Kawabata of Japanese duo CHEMISTRY, who Crystal had previously worked with on Two As One. It was released on August 12 2009 as a double A-side single, coupling with Girlfriend (feat. BoA). It was the only one of the two to receive a music video, and appeared on Crystal's ninth studio album Spin the Music, as well as later on LOVE SONG BEST. The single peaked at #31 on the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart.

If you pay close attention, you'll notice that After Love is an answer song to Boyfriend (What Makes Me Fall In Love) and Boyfriend -part ii-. The lyrics reference words from Boyfriend, and even the subtitle of the song is a reference to a lyric from Boyfriend's chorus (最初のBoyfriend First Boyfriend). Boyfriend discusses Crystal's first boyfriend and the good times she's had with him, whereas After Love takes place a long time after, as Crystal reminisces on that relationship, and even years after, he still has a place in her life, and their experiences together impacted her for the better.
