Check out these new tracks from Fantasy Boys, Bang Yedam, Rocky, J.Y. Park, The Boyz.
“Get It On” by Fantasy Boys
“Potential” by Fantasy Boys
I didn’t follow their survival show, but I did check out Fantasy Boys’ debut track “New Tomorrow” when it was first released. And honestly, I thought it was alright. But the awkward music video really affected how I received the song. Now that the group is making their first comeback, I came in hoping I might like this release better. And I do! I very much enjoy both new tracks from this single. Title track “Potential” is an excellent R&B track that is such a different vibe from their debut. A charismatic, moody, yet flirtatious track that I definitely did not expect from them. But definitely enjoy. “Get It On,” meanwhile, is a catchy dance track with an encouraging message. The youthful vibe suits the group. And together, this makes for a very strong comeback for them. Very happy to see and hear it!
“Only One” by Bang Yedam
I didn’t really follow TREASURE too much, though I would always check out their new releases if they pop up. So I don’t know much about Bang Yedam. And was also pleasantly surprised that he signed with the same company as KINGDOM. Title track “Only One” is certainly a great track to be introduced to him with. A wonderfully casual R&B track that leaves you with a positive feeling afterward. The other tracks on the album are a nice mix of pop, rock and R&B tracks, showing off his versatile talent. Looking forward to what he has in store for the future. And also having some Yedam-KINGDOM interactions as well!
“Lucky Rocky” by Rocky
Rocky makes his solo debut with the funky “Lucky Rocky”. It’s a playful and addictive melody that has Rocky re-introducing himself in a charismatic way, reminding people of his performance skills and now stepping into the spotlight on his own. The rest of the album ROCKYST has a mix of rock and pop tracks and is a good showcase for him as a soloist.
“Changed Man” by J.Y. Park
You’re always in for a fun time when the J.Y. Park releases a new track. For “Changed Man,” he teams up with the legend Kim Wan Sun for a perfectly nostalgic retro dance track. Though it would’ve been much better if Kim Wan Sun actually had lines in the track itself, she provides a necessary piece of the complete performance and concept for the track. The music video story could easily be a movie or K-drama plot line and it would work very well, even with JYP and Kim Wan Sun in the lead roles. But overall, it’s a fun track and even more enjoyable performance by two certified stars of Korean entertainment.
“Watch It” by The Boyz
I like The Boyz’s latest title track “Watch It”. I haven’t been excited about their recent releases lately. But the bass-powered dance track has an addictive chorus that pulls you in. My favorite part of the track is the pre-chorus though. But as a whole, the track allows the group to do what they do best and that is deliver a charismatic performance with plenty of swag. The rest of the album Phantasy Pt.2 Sixth Sense is of similar vibes and makes for a good group of songs.
