EXID Ah Yeah (Song Review)

ccooony: “Ah Yeah” is said to be the follow-up song to EXID’s hit track “Up & Down”. The girls must have been feeling the pressure to try to deliver another hit song and have a successful comeback this time around to prove that they aren’t just a one hit wonder. With this track, I can see and hear some similar elements to “Up & Down” although it does have its own style to it.

You can hear the jazzy instrumentals in the background throughout the song and there’s even someone whispering, “Where do you live? Do you live alone?” right at the very beginning of the song.

EXID Up & Down

ccooony: Even though this song was released all the way back in August 2014, it wasn’t until more recently that the song received much attention because a Hani-focused fancam went viral. It even won them their first ever wins on the major broadcast music shows. Their music video has over 9 million views with the view count still increasing. I’ve been hearing this song a lot more and the chorus is really easy to remember. I think that the song is actually pretty catchy and it is easy to recognize their choreography for the dance as well.

I think that their success really shows the power of viral videos and I think everyone will be looking to see how their next single/album will do to see if they will just be a one hit wonder or if they can continue their current fame and recognition to rise as one of the top girl groups or not. We’ll just have to wait and see. But for now, they’re doing well with this song and I know I’m not tired of listening to it yet. Continue reading →
