The Wonder Girls covered B.O.B & Bruno Mars‘ “Nothin’ On You” recently and it caused Wonderfuls to absolutely lose their shit.
It’s hard to make me hate on the Wonder Girls, primarily because I sort of like them. Admittedly less so than if they simply swapped out Lim and Sohee for HyunA and Sunmi, but still, they aren’t obnoxious at all. Sure, their American foray cost them a lot, and I think it was fucking dumb, but they all seem to stray away from doing stupid shit.
However, the combination of what amounts to a mediocre to poor cover of a song I like and insane fan reaction to said cover has practically forced me to comment on it, because it’s all so goddamn ridiculous.
Okay, look, any time you are writing and you type the words “Sohee“, “sings“, and “beautifully” in a sentence, and it’s not separated by a “doesn’t“, you know all sanity has been lost and to report yourself to the nearest mental institution.
Apart from the Engrish, Sunye wasn’t bad, and while I love Yubin … once again, idol rappers are not actual rappers. The cover could have been far worse if it wasn’t for Sunye, but the way fans are reacting to it, you’d think this was a flawless performance or something.
To go as far as saying that their American adventure was worth it because of this cover is … insane, especially considering that they are using what amounts to barely understandable English.
Be honest, this was not impressive in the least.
