New Beenzino song released sometime Friday October 9 and I had my first listen last week Friday.
Do I like? Yes and No
This song is very different from Beenzino's previous songs and the style seems to be a step into a different direction. But the song is very Beenzino. What does that mean anyway?
I'll be honest, I didn't like it at first because I don't usually listen to songs like this. With a beat encompassed in a flavor of the past, mixing this sort of jazz and blues feel with a mean drum, and bass line, but then grabbing in a taste of indie rock or something to that effect with the keyboard and synthesizers. All of this over lapping into each but in a way complimenting and completing it's flavor. And there is also an addictive hook.
Hooks like this reminds me very much of pop songs I try not to like but end up singing and listening to them on repeat anyway. It's almost as if Beenzino took note from Pharrel's ridiculously popular Happy song. I deeply hated to love that song but I soon found myself knowing the lyrics that didn't really make sense to me and dancing to the beat whenever I heard the song.
But there is a difference with this song. This song isn't bad. This is a Beenzino song and like the talented rapper that he is, Beenzino once again poured is heart into the lyrics and layered his natural rapid-fire rhymes over the beat thus creating this masterpiece called 'Break'.
Like Beenzino said, 'I wanna be myself. I wanna be different. So let me be imperfect.' Beenzino is clearly throwing shots at all of his haters again with his clever lyrics. And I agree. Beenzino needs to break the mold of stereo-typical hip-hop rap music. We've already started doing it in America. It's only right that Beenzino also gets to make his mark doing what he loves with the talent he has.
