IT IS FINALLY FRIDAY💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼, I AM FREE. I HAVE BEEN SO BUSY THIS WEEK😪😪.
I have a lot to catch up on. I have to complete music and drama reviews, variety show discussions/recaps and a winter playlist. Hopefully, I can get everything done by Sunday. To begin the marathon, let’s check out Solar and Kassy’s latest collaboration. The teaser poster for their new song caught my attention, so I made a note to check it out once I have enough time. I already know Solar from Mamamoo, but I do not know much about Kassy.
I did a little research on her and here is what I found – Kim So Yeon, known by the stage name Kassy is a South Korean singer and rapper. She debuted in 2015 and in 2016, she participated in the hip hop survival reality show – Unpretty Rapstar 3. So far, she has released two extended plays and a good number of singles. She is currently managed by Nextar Entertainment.
Okay, on January 16th, Solar x Kassy released a digital single titled “A song from the past”
(Note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to this song.)
Reaction to Live Version Video:
- I already love the melody.
- Kassy has a beautiful voice, and I know that Solar is going to sound great.
- They are both stunning ladies, and I love this hair colour on Solar.
- Wait, I just got chills. The subtle instrumental switch-up and Kassy’s breathy notes during their entry to the chorus section is so good.
- The chorus section is my favourite part of this song.
- Yes, to the heavenly harmonies.
- Lol Solar cannot be serious for too long, I guess.
- Love her happy vibes even when singing an emotional ballad.
- Oooo, more harmonies.💓💓
- I need to check out more of Kassy’s songs because her voice keeps on giving me goosebumps.
- The high notes in this song are not too climactic, but they are very efficient and stable.
- Wait a minute… Did they just subtly modulate on me? I was not expecting a modulation at this point, and it was done so quickly.
- I am enjoying this song.
- Yes… Solar come in with those chilling high notes.
- Also, the way she smoothly switches back into her lower register is impressive.
- Awwww, they ended in harmony… SO BEAUTIFUL.
- I said it. Solar cannot hold back her happy vibes.
- Immediately they stopped singing, she started laughing. I can’t deal.🤦♀️😂😂😂
- I am going to have a second listen before giving my rating.
- Although I do not have the English translation now, this song gives me some sense of peace.
- I could see myself listening to just the instrumental of this track because it has a very soothing and lovely melody.
- WOW. Solar and Kassy effortlessly nailed every second of this track.
- I checked out the English translation, and the lyrics are so comforting.
- I also watched their actual live performance on Yu Huiyeol’s Sketchbook:
- Their voices go so well together.
- I am in love, this is for sure, going on my playlist.
- So my rating for “A song from the past” by Solar x Kassy is 10/10.
