May was cruising along with ease as a majority of us in the states worried about businesses reopening and going back to work in the middle of a pandemic. All that tension build up and shit it the fan. The last week as been extremely difficult for me and lazy unnie. To also have to see the blatant anti-blackness in the KPOP community that was always there was also a slap in the face. BLACK LIVES MATTER PERIOD.
So umm midway into doing my “now” thoughts on these songs, I realized that I am not in the frame of mind to truly express any now thoughts for a few songs. Like I said, the last week has been taxing and I really don’t even feel like addressing the plethora of idol controversies either. All in all, I would like people who can donate to causes to keep doing so even after everything dies down.
All By Myself
Taeyeon – Happy
Initial: Nothing much to the song. It gives a cozy feeling. I hope she’s doing well.
Now: I definitely didn’t listen to this after it was released lol. Cute song and video.
IU – Eight (feat Suga)
Initial: Cute song. Jieun looks so pretty. It’s very breezy and easy to listen to.
Now: So I heard the acoustic version and it is so much better.
BOL4 – Leo (feat Baekhyun)
Initial: Coffee shop music that does nothing for me. I really am not a fan of this girl’s voice at all. It’s just so lackluster.. At least Baekhyun sounds sexy like the bae he is.
Raiden X CHANYEOL – Yours (Feat. LeeHi, CHANGMO)
Initial: Lee Hi escaped the dungeon and already we’re hearing so much of her. Also I love Chanyeol. THAT’S MY BABY. I love this song and I’m not frontin’… it’s so good. OMG. they sound so goooood.
Now: This song is sooo good. I really do enjoy it alot.
pH-1 – PACKITUP!
Initial: I find it funny tbh. It has a nice beat and allll the shade lol. I mean he’s not wrong. Zico you have 24hrs to respond!
Now: He donated to BLM so I will give this song two more streams this month.
Baek Ji Young x Ong Seong Wu – Didn’t Say Anything.
Initial: Yas king go get that ballad promo!!! Sing bitchhhh! LOL. It’s a skip but like get itttttt.
BOL4 – Hug
Initial: Sounds like every BOL4 song ever.
SAAY – Don’t Know (feat. Punchnello)
Initial: When you’re in a chill vibe, SAAY is just right. She is hitting right now tbqh.
Now: Genuinely vibing with this tbh. It has helped to calm my vibes.
Woogie – Better (feat Golden)
Initial: Yeah… This the one yall. I DO DESERVE BETTER.
Now: Another song that I’ve been vibing with and enjoy listening to.
Crush – Mayday (feat Joy)
Initial: Crush is …. not very attractive. Joy on the other hand is so pretty. I think it’s time I forgive her for Tempted.
Now: I mean he’s still ugly and this song is so boring, but he also opened his pocket and donated to BLM so I guess one (1) more stream.
Yubin – Yaya (Me Time)
Initial: I had heard a snippet before I heard the full song and was like ehhhh, but like I’ve watched the MV so many times now that I like this so much. Hahaha. Yes. Like it is safe to say that this is the type of music she’s always wanted to release. I love that she is free now to do her thing. This song has such an infectious vibe.
Now: Yeah this is bopping for me. IDC. Unfortunate to think that I don’t quite feel free.
August D – Daechwita
Initial: Listen.. Yall know I am a messy bitch that lives for drama so I am always here for the rappers talking shit. The streets are saying that he was shading a certain ex member of a YG group. The streets are also saying that he copied another member of a YG group’s solo song concept a bit. Think about that. 😄
Now: No comment.
Minzy – Lovely
Initial: Minzy has been having such a hard time. I’m happy she was able to break her contract. Gives me a 2ne1 ballad feeling. Awww. Babies.
Baekhyun – Candy
Initial: The audacity of Baekhyun to just be existing and not giving me his cock is wild af. I don’t understand?????? Check out full review of album here.
Now: A bop. The album bops too.
Three’s A Crowd
Astro – Knock
Initial: I saw this and with all sincerity and no shade.. I really don’t know why I thought there were only five of them lmfao. Cha Eun Woo is very nice to stare at. The song is okay. Don’t like nor dislike it. No special emotions.
Nu’est – I’m In Trouble
Initial: I definitely started singing EXO’s Trouble when I saw the name lmfao .. Anyways. Song is okay. I think it might be a grower.
DAY6 – ZOMBIE
Initial: I accidentally played the english version first lol. Anyways this is nice. I am a little emotional listening to it. Soft rock is always good.
Now: I haven’t listened to the album yet and I want to because I dig this so much. Alsooooooooo.. Jae donated so giving it all the streams.
BVNDIT – Jungle
Initial: Cool was better.
Now: x 6
TXT – Can’t You See Me
Initial: I enjoy this so much more than anything else I have heard from them.. Is it because I don’t remember what the other songs sound like? Yes.. Your point?
NCT 127 – Punch
Initial: At times I enjoy it. At times I’m bored so I guess that sums up my feelings on NCT as whole as well. Also what a terrible MV.
D-Crunch – Pierrot
OnlyOneOf – Angel
Initial: In all honesty, I have never heard of this group before. They just autoplayed after D-Crunch … Hehehe. I like this song.. Do I like it because of them or because it is produced by Gray? Mm….
Monsta X – Fantasia
Initial: At first I was like “oh god noise”, but like they look so fucking good in this MV.. Upon the third listen though, I’m feeling her. Okay, but like why does Shownu & Minhyuk look so fucking fine? COCK!!
New Kidz On The Block
Natty – NineTeen
If you watch Sixteen and Idol School then you are well aware of who Natty is. She was a JYP trainee and is now under Swing Entertainment, I believe. I’ll be honest.. I do not see her as a soloist so hearing that she was doing a solo debut was quite interesting to me…So let’s see what’s good.
Initial: I am shocked. Her voice will take some getting used to, but I enjoy the stylistic choices. She is giving me Chungha vibes tbh. I wish her well.. Can’t wait to see a live performance. I really am enjoying the instrumental.
Moon Jung Up – Headache (feat. Yunhway)
I don’t know anything about BAP. I mean I know like average, but I don’t care. So like they’re all free so they’re all here to terrorize us with solo songs.
Initial: This is actually a fun vibe. I am shock.. Granted I’m a little tipsy right now so we’ll see. I like Yunhway… who is she??
Woo!Ah! – woo!ah! (Exclamation!)
So the problem with debuts is that I have to look into who these people are to give you all the tea, but I just don’t care enough…… This group is made entirely of people born after the year 2000.. I am shook.
Initial: This was almost a good song.. Almost. Maybe when I drink more we’ll see how I feel.
Red Square – Color Full
Okay so this girl group is from About Entertainment (never heard of it) and they are five members. OOMF is always tweeting about them so I knew they recently debuted.
Initial: I was a bit turned off by the beginning, but as the song actually started I was pleasantly surprised. I like the funky vibe of it. The vocals also sound really good. I am interested in hearing more.
Secret Number – Who Dis?
This group I am vaguely aware of because it has ex-YG trainees Jinny and Denise.. I have never heard of the company though.
Initial: I’m highkey mad.. I actually fucks with this. It’s kinda a serve. Ughhh…. I love the the sounds of the chorus so much. fuck.. w/e #ifyouknowyouknow
Ryu Su Jeong – Tiger Eyez
I am not the biggest Lovelyz fan, but I do like Kei. I really didn’t know who sujeong was when I heard she was having a debut, but all of Woolim has super talented people.
Initial: This is giving me like a pure pop sound and I’m not mad about it. She’s kinda serving. Lemme listen to the mini album.
Kim Wooseok – Red Moon
Another solo debut from a group that I don’t listen to and therefore don’t really care. I was just trying to include a penis in my debuts section tbh. Apparently he’s also a former member of X1..
Initial: The song itself isn’t bad at all, but watching the MV is such a turn off to me. Like the try hard sexy looks are sending me. The song is really something that I would definitely vibe to. Let’s check out the album.
