Big double header today with MAMAMOO and BLACKPINK both putting out new singles. I really love them both: “Yes I Am” is a super summerjam straight out of the gate and I really like “As If It’s Your Last” as well, although the chorus feels weirdly quiet compared to the verses.
Mamamoo put out a full MV for their “dad jokes” track, too, which is a perfect complement to Yes I Am’s super colourful video - it has a very drab, “business-like” look to it, but it’s still super goofy and fun.
I’ve really been enjoying 9MUSES’s new EP, as well - the lead track, Remember, was a bit of a slower burn on me than today’s releases, but I like the rhythm shift just before the chorus hits a lot and the EP as a whole is some good stuff from them. I think I was expecting something more summery given the release timing, but once I’d gotten past that surprise I got quite into it.
