"Sunao na Mama" (素直なまま; The State of Honesty) is Mika Nakashima's 22nd single . This single was released on the 14th March 2007, the same day as her album Yes. It appeared in a DoCoMo commercial, and is best described as a midtempo easy listening ballad.
The B-side is a cover of the song "Fever", which was made famous by Peggy Lee. Nakashima's version of the song, which she recorded with bassist Ron Carter, originally appeared on Ken Shima's Jazz compilation album, Shimaken Super Sessions, in late 2006. Unfortunately, the single almost knocked Mika out of the Top 20 on the Oricon Singles Chart.
