So I saw this “THAT XX” music video being hyped, and not by people I would consider G-Dragon stans, so it got me curious. People were saying that his vocals on the track were tight … but it sounds quite bad to me, like how Ken Hirai would sound if he couldn’t sing for shit and wasn’t the ballerest homosexual Asian celebrity.
Inevitably there will be people saying that it was the deep, meaningful lyrical content that made it “beautiful” or whatever, but the theme of this song is rather common, no? Angsty guy likes pretty girl but pretty girl is dating player guy, angsty guy in friend zone with pretty girl and won’t tell her that player guy is pounding pussy behind her back on the regular, angsty guy raps asking why pretty girl can’t breakup with player guy and date him instead. Sound standard?
He has done more complex stuff before, so I’m guessing most of the hype around this is just because G-Dragon actually attempts to sing. Since I wasn’t impressed with that, I assume that’s why my opinion differs from others.
Yes, I’ll review his other music video. Yes, it’s late. Yes, I’m busy.
