«Tokonatsu Musume» is Coconuts Musume‘s third single, and their first under the name ココナッツ娘。It is also their first single as 4 girls, as Lehua Sandbo had been chosen to take Ching’s and Babaran’s places in the group after them leaving. 

The single contains the title track and its instrumental, as well as a reggae version of the lead track. It reached #64 on the Oricon charts, only selling 2.850 copies.

Magazines described the track as as a bubbly dance-tune with an early summer feel, and a colorful video to go with it. This showed  a new direction for the group, where they were cutesier and more bubblegum-poppy, as opposed  to their earlier sexy and mature vibe.
