PRISTIN’s Wee Woo

Music Monday is back!!

I wanted to start with a song that was just released on March 21st since in me trying to understand its sudden popularity…i ended up on liking it. haha. PRISTIN is a group I had not heard of so I was wondering how so many people took to this “unknown” so quickly. Little did I know there was nothing unknown about them! Out of this ten member group, seven of them were on the extremely popular music reality show Produce 101. A show where 101 girls from all the different entertainment companies competed to be in a group that was would be promoted for a year: I.O.I. . Not only did PRISTIN’s leader Na Young become the  leader of I.O.I. , Zhou Jieqiong (Kyulkyung) also made it into the group….so this already peaked a lot of people’s interests. While those two were promoting in I.OI. The other eight girls released their single WE as PLEDIS GIRLZ last summer to pretty good reception. With I.O.I disbanding earlier this year, Kyulkyung and Na Young were able to come back to form their complete group: PRISTIN.

The song mainly got to me because of the “wee woo”s in the chorus but I found myself drawn to the girls vocals themselves. Somehow each girl just seems to fit the area of music they were given. The harmonize well and overall I find their look, sound and music video to reminiscent of TWICE. I really do wonder if these girls will give them a run for their money. Psst. don’t hate….I like TWICE too. Only other things I can say about this song is I assume the “wee woo”s are the sound of an ambulance? You hear the sirens in the songs background on occasion and they rap at one point to get them an ambulance. lol.

 

miss A’s Touch

It’s Monday again so it’s time for Music Monday again. On the 20th, miss A released their first mini-album “Touch”. I admit i’ve had the mini-album since it came out, but i’ve yet to listen to anything but the title track 😡

miss A is a korean pop/dance group that is aimed at the south korean and chinese markets. Jia and Fey are Chinese while Min and Suzy are korean. I love that age isn’t really a problem in this group. I like that JYP (Jin Young Park) focused on talent and their chemistry then anything else. Suzy is quit a few years younger (17) then the rest of the girls but can keep up with them vocally. I also like that Min looks somewhat on the heavier side. Curvacious is probably the word i’m looking for. Each girl is really pretty but i think Min takes the cake.

Everything is fun, catchy and meaningful without being too scandalous or slutty, etc. I admit the first time i heard this song i thought it was a little odd, much like their single Breathe. But the more i listened the more it grew on me, plus i think the dance is rather unique. The video and song are a little more on the serious side/tone but i still enjoy it a lot.
