My chosen song for this week is “WAYO” by TREASURE’s BANG YE DAM. Bang Ye-dam is a South Korean singer and member of the soon to be debuted boy group – TREASURE. The group is signed to YG Entertainment. Bang Ye-dam was born on May 7th, 2002, which makes him 18 this year. He gained popularity after appearing on the second season of K-pop Star in 2012. After finishing as the runner-up, he joined YG Entertainment. This digital single – “WAYO” marks his solo debut, and TREASURE will be debuting in July.
I initially wanted to write a review for this song, but since I didn’t have enough time, I had to save it for my future song of the week. I love how the song starts out with a guitar that ushers Ye-dam’s soft vocals into the mix. The way he sings “wayo, wayo, wayo” is so catchy and soothing. That part completely sold this song for me. Overall the progression of this song is relaxing and truly showcases Ban Ye-dam’s beautiful voice. I remember watching him on K-pop Star, and he was way younger then. I’m glad that he was able to train and maintain his voice. I can’t wait to hear more from him.
With concerns to his group – TREASURE, I have only heard “Going Crazy”, and it wasn’t exactly my style. But I will still keep an eye out for their official debut.
I hope you enjoy listening to “WAYO” by BANG YE DAM. Continue to have a lovely week, everyone.💕💕💕
