BTS Dope (Song Review)

ccooony: After finishing up promotions for their track “I Need U,” BTS is back with their new track “Dope”. Right from the start of the first verse, I had a feeling that this was going to be a great song and I definitely wasn’t disappointed. This is probably one of the most upbeat songs from BTS so far with faster choreography to match the quick pace of the song. Not only their moves as a group, but the rap in the song was also fast paced.

I got a groovy vibe from the saxophone sounds that played throughout their main dance sections of the song. The boys pulled off all the moves and kept up with the pace throughout the song. The song mentions about how hardworking they all are while other people are out clubbing. Overall, this is a really catchy track and is a song I would want to have on repeat! Fitting with the the title of the song, BTS is definitely dope! Continue reading →

Sistar Shake It (Review)

ccooony: Sistar has returned with another fun summer song! “Shake It” is a song that makes you want to just groove and shake along! The music video is both bright and colorful, which really matches the happy vibe of the song. We also see cameos from some of their label-mates from Monsta X in the music video.

The beats in the song and the chorus make it memorable and Sistar’s vocals and rap suit the vibe of the song. When I first heard the “Shake it up shake it for me” lyrics, it actually reminded me of lyrics from JJ Project’s (now GOT7’s JB and Jr.) song “Bounce”. However, this song is easily distinguishable and has its own catchy lyrics. Overall, this is a really fun song that is suitable for the summertime!

Monsta X Trespass (Song Review)

ccooony: Starship Entertainment’s newest boy group, who is their first hip hop group came out with a great debut song! I really like the sound and feel of this hip hop track. The strongest point of this song for me has to be the main rap chorus by Jooheon. I’m really looking forward to seeing Jooheon’s performance on the upcoming season of “Show Me the Money 4.” I can’t wait to see how he shapes up against the other rappers.

Monsta X was formed from Starship Entertainment’s survival show for a new boy group called “NO.MERCY”. I think that this group came out with a strong track and a strong presence. Not only the rapping, but the vocals and dancing are also strong. Each of the members appear to be charismatic on stage, but also seem to have their own goofy and personable sides to them as well. I’m looking forward to seeing what new tracks they’ll come out with next as well as their future activities! Continue reading →
