Generic as it could be, I nonetheless love Jeon Somi’s Quick Ahead. It’s enjoyable to listen to membership music infiltrate Ok-pop and he or she makes a convincing dance diva. Sadly, the remainder of the album is seize bag of genres — some extra becoming than others. That is evidenced by opening monitor — and follow-up single — Gold Gold Gold.
Whereas Quick Ahead is every part I’d hope Somi would pursue, Gold Gold Gold is every part I’d beg her to keep away from. It’s an irritating novelty monitor, stuffed with boastful sing-talk and vocal fry. I’ve heard worse on this particular sub-genre, however these sort of foolish, sing-song “empowerment” tracks hardly ever do a lot for me. Gold‘s rap verses are enjoyable and cheeky, but can’t salvage the repetitive refrain. With moments like these, Somi’s recording profession stays frustratingly inconsistent — pinballing between highlights and lowlights.
