‘Check This Out!’ July 2nd, 2014

Check out G.R.L. ! These girls debuted back in 2013 with the song “Vacation” and are made up with some of the departed members of the Pussycat Dolls. The group consists of five girls. The members are Emmalyn Estrada, Simone Battle, Paula van Oppen, Lauren Bennett, and Natasha Slayton. I found their songs really catchy and I really liked it. I also had never seen those kinds of outfits before so it was really interesting to see. Hope you enjoy it!

The Oreo Cookie of Bonding and the Cheese Stick of Craziness

First day of July! And in the World Cup the USA was against Belgium and lost 1-2. Oh well, that’s okay!

Okay, so today I was having oreos with milk, you know the usual thing to do. And I accidentally dropped my cookie into my milk and I couldn’t get it out. So, I called my sister over and asked her to help me get my food. It was at the same time that she was looking for her cheese stick. She completely ignored my cry for help and kept on looking. When she finally found it she took one out and looked at it with a crazed look and said “You can’t hide from me!” and let out a maniacal laugh. She never helped me get my cookie back…

This is my  life with my sister 24/7. It’s crazy. That is the only nice word I can use to describe it. My sister was right beside me when I was writing this, so it’s like an indirect confession. I still love you.

Are your siblings this crazy to?

Got7 2nd Mini Album ‘A’

Got7 have been really busy this year. I mean, they only debuted earlier this year with ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’ and now they’re already coming back with their second mini album, Got <3 (Got Love).

Track 1: U Got Me

I found the title of this song kind of ironic. There are 7 members all saying that we got them. We are some lucky people, aren’t we? Anyway, the song starts out with a strong bass and a unique yet satisfying drum sound that is like a mix between someone clucking their tongue and one of these-

I think my grandparents have one of these at their house.

The song is filled with smooth vocals and rapping from the members creating slow and soothing hip-hop feeling.

Track 2: A

The next track of the album is ‘A’ which was composed and produced by JYP himself. It features a hip-hop rhythm, with an R&B twist.

It starts out with nice English lyrics that I can actually understand; “It’s not working. So stop fronting. I know you want me so let’s start talking.” So, yay for English lyrics. Although I do know that the title of this song, ‘A’, is a Korean saying that you use when you’re trying to tease someone who is trying to hide their feelings but it can’t really be hidden.  It also can’t be hidden that this song is kind of addicting to listen to. With the different elements of music to emphasize the vocals and rapping, like the short orchestral part in the middle of the song that helps the feeling of the innocence of the crush and the “faze in” beats when new members sing, this song has caught my attention.

‘A’, the title track of the album, does not have just one remix it has three, so if you didn’t hear the first ‘A’ you can fall in love with the three remixes.

Track 3: Bad Behavior

What really drew me to this song were the harmonies throughout the song. It created an interesting feeling to the song itself. With the steady beat and great harmonies and vocal, this was one of the most unique songs I have listened to in a hip-hop/ R&B genre.

 Track 4: Good Tonight

This is my personal favorite in this album. The song starts out with catchy guitar rhythm but a sudden beat comes in. I just feel that the way that the lyrics were sang and presented were perfect for this song. The way that this group sings is with a lot of swag. Swag is a strange way to describe it but it’s true and definitely how this song needed to sung.

Track 5: Forever Young

For this song, the group brings it down for a slow hip-hop ballad. I feel that the raps really fit for this song; with their calm and deep voices, it was a good fit for a slow song like this one. A slow and steady beat with a deep rapping voice was perfect for this song.

Overview

Overall, I really liked this album. I thought is was really well put together and gave you the right mix of different styles of hip-hop and R&B songs. I look forward to what they’ll have for us next. Great job Got7 and good luck!

Something to Remember

Now you have to remember that these reviews are purely opinionated. I am no musical expert that can give real critiques but I can give my honest opinion and also what I found interesting about the song.
