Get Groovy with Chancellor’s AUTOMATIC (Feat. Babylon, twlv, MOON, BIBI, & Jiselle)

This week’s chosen song is “AUTOMATIC” by Chancellor, Babylon, twlv, MOON, BIBI, and Jiselle. What a stellar collaboration because every artist on this track is a solid vocalist.

I fell in love with “AUTOMATIC” from the first listen. This song’s sultry vibe is right up my alley + the perfect balance of male/female R&B voices hits home for me. Every artist brought spice to “AUTOMATIC”. Though, when MOON came in, something about how she said – “I’m a savage” took the song to a whole other level. Then BIBI followed up with more vibes, and Jiselle gave a sweet closing. I seriously wouldn’t substitute or remove any artist on this track but the LADIES!!! definitely brought their A++++++ dynamic SAUCE!!! to this one.

I needed to take in some good vibes lately, and this song came through on repeat. So I hope you all enjoy listening to it as well.πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

BIBI X Dingo – she got it (cigarette and condom): Music Review

This collaboration between DingoBIBI was released yesterday. Of course, I am here to show some love, so let’s get right into this.

Oh, by the way, Dingo ain’t no artist. It’s a Korean entertainment channel on YouTube. I just wanted to clarify for anyone confused.img_2594

  • Definitely wasn’t expecting her to say the ‘cigarette and condom’ in English but okurrr girl.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
  • You all better be of age before listening to this song. I don’t have English lyrics, but I know this is not a child’s story.

  • Lol, the condom pack is actually candy.
  • This music video is simple but so pretty. Dingo did a great job.

(Please note – This is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to each song.)

“Villain” by AleXaimg_1287Reaction to Official MV:

  • This marks my first time hearing any song from her, so I have my fingers crossed.
  • Alright, we don’t have any English captions, but I can check for them later.
  • I love the intense instrumental, and she has a beautiful voice.
  • The choreography is also good. AleXa and the dancers are synchronized.
  • I love how they used the two outfits to represent her different sides. There must be a theory for that, but of course, I have no idea.
  • The beat goes hard and actually makes me want to move, but I’m not fully vibing with the song.
  • I’m going to listen to it again before making up my mind.
  • I absolutely adore her vocal tone. It sounds unique to me, and the production on the track is quite okay.
  • Overall, “Villian” is a great song, but since I’m not too invested it right now, it gets an 8/10.

 

“I’m good at goodbyes” by BIBIimg_1781Reaction to Official MV:

  • I absolutely loved her previous single – “KAZINO”, and if you haven’t read my review for that song, use this link πŸ‘‰πŸΌ BIBI – KAZINO: Music Review.
  • Now let’s see how this one goes.
  • Wow, the visuals for this video are stunning. Most notably that scene with BIBI lying in the grass.
  • I need that red dress, it’s gorgeous.
  • Already this shows her versatility because it’s completely different from “KAZINO”
  • BIBI is so cute and weird. Talent just overflows from her.
  • This music video… DAMN. Who came up with the concept? The visuals are incredible but surprisingly simple.
  • I just noticed that I do not have English captions, but it’s okay.
  • I love the drum beats and piano instrumental for this song. They are soft, groovy and complement BIBI’s singing style really well.
  • Her voice is calming and always draws me in. Honestly, she is too underrated.
  • Her vocal runs and range are very intriguing. I also love the falsetto runs she throws in once in a while.
  • This is such a chill song, and I cannot wait to read the English lyrics.
  • There’s nothing more to say, I LOVE IT.
  • “I’m good at goodbyes” gives off a very serene and trancelike vibe. The music video is also well thought out.

“Be Alive” by Bii

img_0211Reaction to Official Lyric Video:

  • Bii released “Be Alive” to mark his 10th Anniversary, so as one of his biggest fans, I have to give him a review.
  • Already from the guitar intro, I am intrigued.
  • No song has English captions today. WHY???
  • Awww, his voice is so sweet.
  • Oooh, I love the rocker vibe of this track. The guitar is going off in the background, and Bii’s runs are beautiful.
  • The instrumental of this song is incredible. It displays astonishing production, most notably when he sings – “Oh, Oh, Oh… Oh, Oh, Be Alive.” 
  • The drums and guitar strumming during that section are insanely good.
  • I am enjoying every second of this song because it’s very captivating.
  • Yet another substantial addition to my playlist.
  • Wow, the guitar player is mighty talented. I won’t lie, I think I’m in love.
  • Okay, “Be Alive” by Bii gets a bulletproof 10/10 from me.

BIBI – KAZINO: Music Review

On April 29th, BIBI released her new single titled “KAZINO”. The cover/teaser photos for this song are quite interesting. I honestly don’t know what to expect – img_5441

Kim Hyung Seo, who goes by the stage name BIBI is a South Korean singer managed by FeelGhood Music. She debuted on May 15th, 2019, with the digital single “BINU”. The first time I saw her was on the audition program – The Fan and I fell in love with her voice and vibe. She is so quirky and adorable. I have been following her releases since her debut, and her songs are excellent, so I have my fingers crossed for “KAZINO”img_5439(Please note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to this song.)

Reaction to Official MV:

  • Yesss!!! I have English subs.
  • Alright, I think this is going to be a darker concept compared to the previous two songs I just reviewed.
  • The music video starts out with a lady being dunked in water. It seems someone is trying to drown her? And she’s clearly struggling.
  • Yep, definitely a darker vibe.
  • Wait a minute? So this casino bets on women and BIBI is trying to win a game?
  • She needs to win that game to save the lady.
  • Am I right?… This is sick, and the fact that such things do happen in real life makes it even more disturbing.
  • All the same, my girl BIBI is looking FINEEEE!!!
  • I love her vocal tone. She transitions smoothly from her full voice to her falsetto.
  • Also, the vocal layering on this is nice. Basically, BIBI sounds beautiful.
  • This song started out with some soft piano and guitar in the background, but things got groovy once the beat came in towards the chorus.
  • BIBI is vocally riding this beat, and “KAZINO” is officially a BOP.
  • Oooh, now I get the name. It’s a play on the word casino… Okay.
  • This music video is really dark. BIBI got chocked and injured for interfering. Now they’re dragging her bloody body casually out of the casino.
  • WHAT A WOW!!!
  • Did I just see Tiger JK?? Nice cameo.
  • For those who don’t know, Tiger is the founder of BIBI’s record label.
  • Ooh, so she isn’t dead, but they brought her to the main boss, who happens to be Tiger JK.
  • Okay, she won the game people. Thank God.
  • I love how the instrumental slowed down again once she won.
  • The bridge sounds so siren-like.
  • Suddenly everyone is down. At the beginning of this video, I saw a scene where BIBI poured some powder into a bottle, so did she spike their drinks??
  • And now the groovy hook is back.
  • Yes, she saved the lady. Good job.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
  • “KAZINO” gets a 10/10 from me.
  • I love that the music video has a clear and intriguing storyline. Plus, the song goes mad hard.

Catching Up With Recent Comebacks – Part 1

I have been quite busy, so I couldn’t review most of the songs that got released lately. Now here is a list of the recent releases that I truly enjoyed –

BIBI – Restless: img_3355 This is such a soothing song to listen to. BIBI has a unique tone, and she always makes the most lovely tracks. So I highly recommended “Restless” to anyone who needs some chill music to help them relax. Plus, the music video is beautiful, and BIBI is so adorable.

 

Vince Feat. Zion.T – EMERGENCY:img_3357 I actually planned to check this out because of Zion.T. I really do not know much about Vince, he seems to be a new artist. I could only find two songs on his Spotify account, and I am already in love with his sound. Vince has the classic Korean sexy R&B vibe, so if that is your arena, you will enjoy his songs. Here is his other song titled “MENNAL” –

 

SECHSKIES EP – ALL FOR YOU: img_3358 I am so happy that they are back. I adore the sound of older Kpop groups. They always give off a nostalgic and sweet feel. Plus, their songs are also very catchy. This new EP has five songs. The title track is also called “ALL FOR YOU”. I enjoyed listening to all five songs. My favourites are – “ALL FOR YOU” & -“MEANINGLESS”. Here is a sample of the EP –

 

HYUKOH EP – through love:img_3361 HYUKOH always impresses with their music, so I had to check out their latest album. I recently featured their old song “TOMBOY” as my song for this week. To check out that post, use this link πŸ‘‰πŸΌ HYUKOH – TOMBOY: Song Of The Week. This new album has six songs, and it is quite different from their usual sound. It has more instrumental solos and less lyrical sections. The songs made me feel like I was lying in an open field while staring at the sun. They sound very trancelike and give off a sense of serenity. I added the entire album to my playlist because just selecting a few songs will cause me to miss out on the full experience. HYUKOH’s through love is another good recommendation for some good relaxation time.

 

Lee Seung Chul – I will give you all:img_3118 I saw Park Bo-gum in the teaser, so I decided to check it out, but I stayed for the singer’s beautiful voice. This song is an OST for a webtoon called The Legendary Moonlight Sculptor. This is my first time listening to anything from Lee Seung Chul, but I plan to check out more of his songs later. He is an older singer, so his control of this classic ballad sound is impeccable. If you are a ballad lover like me, you will really enjoy listening to this song. The instrumental for this track also has some rock elements, so if you like that, this is for you. 

 

Baek Ji Woong – A Weary Night: img_3218_original I love the deep voice of this singer, and I cannot wait to check out more of his songs. “A Weary Night” is another beautiful ballad. It is the classic slow song accompanied by a keyboard and orchestra. Such songs might seem simple, but what really makes or mars it is the singer’s ability. Baek Ji Woong has a compelling and calming tone, so I was captivated right from his first note. He is really talented. I love discovering new artists to add to my long list of faves.
