A Ok-pop act’s title observe isn’t at all times the very best track on their album, even when it’s the one most individuals will hear. Typically, b-sides deserve recognition too. Within the singles-oriented world of Ok-pop, I wish to highlight a few of these buried treasures and provides them the props they deserve.
One of many composers I miss most in Ok-pop is B1A4’s Jung Jinyoung. He’s now not with the group, which is the place the majority of his songwriting consideration went up to now. And though he was a mentor on MBC’s survival collection Fantasy Boys, he doesn’t have any musical credit on the upcoming debut album of the group spawned from the present. So, we’re going to should take new Jinyoung music the place we will get it. On this case, which means a CF for DB Insurance coverage. A bit random, proper?
However concern not! From the second Collectively Promise begins and Jinyoung’s wealthy, textured voice kicks off verse one, it looks like we’re again in basic B1A4 territory. This isn’t his greatest track by a mile. If it had been a part of an album, it might be an honest b-side. Nonetheless, its nostalgia hits laborious. Jinyoung has an unbelievable method with melody and his manufacturing model matches my style to a tee. The observe’s dramatic pre-chorus soars in one of the simplest ways, segueing right into a layered refrain that manages to have me embracing the type of plonky mid-tempo beat I often hate. I’m undecided if Jinyoung has extra solo music deliberate, but when not I’d prefer to see him use his appreciable abilities to supply new idol group music. Simply think about a rookie group steered by his sound!
