Ahh, that’s how I like my commercial pop. Slick and spoon-fed to me. It’s super surprising to see 2NE1 releasing 3 singles at a time — with music videos and promotions. From this 3 singles and the early Try to Follow Me, I canÂ guaranteeÂ passing marks for the album already without listening to it yet. xD
I have to admit, however, LOVED Clap your Hands as a song. Liked Go Away as a video, and by the third Can’t Nobody, I was beginning to feel tired… but by the middle of the song I was at it again. It’s something about these girls — how old are they anyway? They must be in their 15s it feels — having fun. It’s hilarious to see them playing around.
Clap your Hands, I must admit… gave me a bit of a reggaeton vibe (in the fake forest scene, what’s up with that? Came out of nowhere… xD That’s CL, right? Haven’t learned their names, ha!) – it’s the autotune, the instrumentation, and the whole production – but the fact that I can’t understand what they sing about, and they look completely adorable and cool at the same time, it makes me take in the song in a whole different way. It’s slightlyÂ disturbingÂ seeing them saying “let me rock your body” while swinging their hips that way.
Go Away is a whole different fish.
It goes all music-vid-turned-short on me. And I kinda liked it. It’s only 6min. with dramatic interjections, which kinda gives you a weird OMG-Happy-but-Dramatic thing. For some strange reason it made me think of Katy Perry’s Teenage Dreams (is that what it’s called? xD). I was into the video, and really dig the accident… but the explosion? LOL, that totally ruined it for me. It looked really bad. The fire looked as it was hovering the car xD
But I really liked when they were garage-band performing xD
And then there’s Can’t Nobody.
Can’t nobody what? xD Hold us down! LOL – A little disturbing seeing Minzy doing that in that hallway xD, but then they dance, and it’s fun… so all it’s fine. xD
What do you think? Listened to the album? How about 3 single releases, huh? xD
