I am seriously soooooo excited!!! We had some releases this week that were just plain unadulterated awesomeness. This week's playlist is a lil heavy on the K-hiphop just a warning. NOW I GET TO SAY IT.....
DYNAMIC DUO IS BACK Y'ALL!!!!!!!!
Butttt we're gonna start out with another group of boys that we here at Vingle have been missing so much it hurt....
BAP__YOUNG, WILD, & FREE
YAS YAS YASSSSS └(^o^)┘BAP is back and delivered all the things that we've been missing. Badassery, sexiness, and most importantly we got to see their infectious smiles. I, myself, had reservations about the group staying with TS Ent.....but as long as they're happy I'm okay with it. The album.....uuggghh it's just so good. The electric guitar really took this track to the next level....I really would've loved a heavier driving bass (my only slight gripe)....but Daehyun's vocals cutting thru at the chorus were the perfect contrast that this track needed and can we talk about Zelo's rap?? It was an insanely perfect transition....I mean DAMN. Yong Guk taking part in production....I love it when that initiative is taken. I admire his work ethic...I'd also like to take this moment to admire and appreciate his face.... Okay I'm gonna shut up now or I'll go on and on....
The Boys In Groove aka B.I.G also made a comeback with this tune. HEEDO'S RAP....I dunno who it reminds me of and its driving me insane. But anyway I love his tone....I gotta ring that under appreciated bell a few times....these boys consistently put out good stuff. Id just like to see them get to sit at the popular table.
IKON (BOBBY & B.I)__ANTHEM
Bobby and B.I delivered a lil su'um su'um....not quite on the level of GD&TOP but a jam nonetheless. Teddy produced......so I mean....YG just take my money. If Teddy's involved in production y'all already know it's gonna be something you're gonna want in your ears. And I haven't given a shout out to B.I yet but (╭☞•́⍛•̀)╭☞I see you, boy..... good on you for taking part in production on this album as well.
Once again, Teddy's producing so, once again.....YG take my DAMN money. This just rang in my heart....it's ballad season, kids and YG delivered. Now the cynical britch in me was sitting there smh thru the video (the drama of it all.....waeeee??? Are all relationships so emotionally gripping and life and death?? Why were mine not anything like this? Did i get shortchanged?? Who do I take this up with??) but it showcases their ability to convey emotion thru their vocals....and Chanwoo has a voice?? Who knew....lol Visually the boys were looking just as good as they sounded.....Junhoe even got that pretty boy ugly cry on.... Uuugghh young love.... I don't understand you but God bless the music that is created in your wake.
ROAD BOYZ__POISON GIRL
New rookie group under Coconut Entertainment. One of the members is a former member of the group BTL....I remember they debuted then fell off the face of the earth sooo I'm guessing BTL disbanded....*sad face* but this group looks promising. I love this song. I'm trying to dig more details up on them....I'm super curious about their album.
Now I wasn't digging their last comeback.....the rap was odd and the concept of the MV was just uncomfortable for me so I just couldn't get into it. But this, in my opinion, was way better....I mean it's ballad season so get moody, put your suit on, and get your Boys II Men groove on. It just works.
VEN FT PALOALTO__6
Just a slow groove that keeps it coffee shop classy but is still edgy enough to be cool. I dig Ven. Paloalto *sigh*.....mannnn, imma do a separate card about the whole Hilite situation. But anyway, good stuff here....moving on.
SAMUEL SEO__NEW DRESS
I SOOOOO DIG THIS DUDE. He's just got this infectious groove to his songs. Its like a Napoleon Dynamite groove.....so not what you were expecting but so cool.
SAN E X MADCLOWN__SOUR GRAPES
BIG BOY IS BACK and he brought Mad Clown with him. This collaboration was magic. I literally squealed when this was released. Its freakin great....catchy, the MV is hilarious.. the hotline bling parody killed me.
San E makes me question certain things lol.....And his hurrrr???? Like I thought I hated it but it actually looks good.....well his face heavily influenced my thoughts on this but anyway....
DYNAMIC DUO__HONEY JAM
OMG I WAS LITERALLY ROFL....THEY WERE BEES....Honey Lee as the sexy girl bee....the BIGBANG parody was priceless. Besides the obvious comedic value in this MV the song is a TOADal jam....
Pretty spot on.....
Gaeko...boyyyyyy you're killing me LOLOLOL
That look.....Its so Ri (´ヮ`)(´ヮ`)(´ヮ`) Somebody save me lmaooooo
DYNAMIC DUO FT NAFLA__J.O.T.S.
This beat....can we talk about it??? This beat is so open and raw....its taking us back to the 90s. I love the old school feel to this. ITS SO GOOD. And another thing I love about this is the MV.....there were girls featured but they weren't the type of hiphop hunnies you're accustomed to seeing in rap videos. They were real girls....and they weren't over sexualized or just twerking in the background. I really respect Choiza and Gaeko for choosing not to follow the typical checklist for a hiphop MV.
DYNAMIC DUO__도돌이표 LIVE
This songggggggg ♥♥♥ And they sound just as crisp live. If you're into k-hiphop at all.... just download this album.....it's so good. You just need it in your life....you've got features by Lydia Paek, DEAN, Zico, SWAY D, and Herbal Mint. Its just good times.
This MV was epic....like it was on a Xia type level of epicness. So much symbolism. Lyrically....this song is deep as an ocean. I LOVE THIS. Overall it's one of my favorite releases this year. The 19+ version has nekkid buns in it.....and I'd like to say that didn't influence my decision at all.
SUGA KILLED US ALL. THEN HE LIT OUR CORPSES ON FIRE. THE END.
JAY PARK__WORLDWIDE X WANT IT
I had to add my boy, Jay ♡ AND HE SPECIFICALLY SAID ELO IS NEXT ♡ You have no idea how happy this news makes me ┌（^ .^）┘ I've been wanting more ELO since he released that single with The Quiett aaaalllll those many months ago. Full length album, Jay?? Or am I pushin' it? lol \（ .Ő‿ζŐ)/ I'm out of space....so I guess that's all this week, children.
