NewJeans is worth all the HYPE.

By: Shanise Lachelle

Hybe has introduced a brand new girl group, under the stage name of NEW JEANS. Not to much of a fan of their name but BOY do these girls have the talent and charisma to be the next IT girl group of the 4th generation.

I was just scrolling on YouTube last week when I saw hybe had posted ATTENTION by New Jeans on their YouTube. I saw it was a girl group and I was curious so I clicked and I immediately loved the laid back chillness of the song. It’s an instant bop! Not to mention the choreography is a total smash and the girls eat it up.

Then they released another hit, HYBEBOY, with another addicting choreography and catchy verses.

I tend to stay away from a lot of the newer 4th generation groups, because they are so young. But I couldn’t help start to adore NEW JEANS. I see them as my little sisters and as a lover of hybe, I will support and love them!

I give both ATTENTION AND NEW JEANS 5/5. I can’t wait to see what else the girls have up their sleeves.

Girls Reaction

By : Shanise Lachelle

Girls is finally out in the world and just as Aespa Does, it’s a hit!!

After hearing illusion, I wasn’t worried about how Girls would sound or if I would like it. In fact just like all their other songs , I knew Girls would have to grow on me and it definitely did and I love it!!

The video is super cool and definitely ties the song together and brings Girls to life. Each girl has their shinning moment and each girl kills it!

Girls was the first video of Aespas where I didn’t think ONE girl outshined the other. They all stood out equally.

I can’t say just who owned Girls because all four girls did such a great job. My bias is NingNing. And I thought my Bias Wrecker would be Winter, but lately Ms Karina has been stealing my heart!! And completely leaving me speechless with her vocals and sharp moves! She’s more than just a pretty face.

No matter how Giselles behavior bothers me , she does amazing in this song And looks even better! the red hair is definitely making her entire personality pop. She seems to be gaining more confidence as well.

I do think Aespas rap line is my favorite at the moment. Just because the girls seem more comfortable and natural when rapping. And doesn’t seem like a title that the company just threw at them. They deliver each line with such sharpness and sass.

I haven’t listened to the new songs yet, but plan to very soon and will then come back with a review!

I give Girls a 5/5. The looks, fashion, makeup and choreography was a HIT in my book!

Once again Aespa smashes it out the park!

Sneakers Review

By: Shanise Lachelle

Hi friends , and we’re back with another post where I am EATING my words. Yes I’m talking about how much I didn’t like Sneakers , just by the preview alone and NOW I love it. Let’s get into it.

“Put my Sneakers on”, is so damn catchy you can’t help but be happy while listening to it and singing along. I will admit when I heard the preview I was NOT impressed by a long shot. But I should have known my girls wouldn’t have let me down and once again they completely ate this concept up!!

I was so confused when I saw the royal concept then their usual girl crush concept. And could NEVER imagine the two going together well. But in typical ITZY fashion they were unique and totally pulled it off.

The girls look amazing and of course we all now have a new signature choreography move to be obsessed with. If it’s one thing Itzy is going to do , it’s give us a signature move!!

Sneakers is a total secret bop and I would have ever seen that coming honestly!! I give it 5/5. It’s one of my favorite singles they’ve ever done and it gives me total Dalla Dalla vibes.

Every comeback Itzy continues to out do themselves while staying true to what makes them different. Sneakers is sure to be a K-pop summer bop! I’ll have it on at every opportunity.

Have We Been Fooled?!

By: Shanise Lachelle

A few weeks ago I wrote about how excited I was for ITZY new concept and how I was excited for them to trying a more mature theme and growing up. It seems the whole crowns and luxury promo pictures were just that, promo pictures. And now we’ve been hit with an entire new concept and look , and it’s left midzys very confused.

Seeing this concept I was so hyped and excited. They look so good, but then suddenly it switched and now we’re getting a title single named SNEAKERS.

At first we all thought it was a prank or a joke, a way to promote their upcoming mini album and generate buzz.

But as the days go on, it’s becoming so clear that SNEAKERS is what we’re getting whether we like it or not. Not to mention their teaser TikTok videos give me second hand embarrassment and it feels like a Disney track.

I could be wrong, and I’m fully prepared to eat my words. If the song turns out to be a complete BOP. It’s just all the little snippets I’ve heard have been ….. not what I was expecting to be honest.

Of Course they look pretty and the sneakers promo is gorgeous . But it’s not what we were expecting or wanting.

And I’m just really confused how a song about Sneakers , is gonna be good. It’s totally giving me Sneakernight vibes by Vanessa Hudgens.

What are your thoughts? I know we have to wait for the song to actually come out first before we past judgment. So I will try my best to give it an honest listen when it drops. I just pray it’s good and my girls haven’t let me down.

More Reaction!

By: Shanise Lachelle

J-Hope is the very first member of BTS to go solo during their break and faze two of Bts. Hope is an incredible artist, dancer, producer and member of Bts . So I had absolutely zero doubts that he wouldn’t smash it out of the park!

More” is the first single off J-Hopes new upcoming album titled JACK IN THE BOX.

The song is a mixture between old school hiphop and rock music. Which shouldn’t go together, but in the typical hope fashion , he makes it go together super well . As expected the single goes super hard and shows off a different side to the bts member.

The single is about wanting more and never being satisfied. Which can be a good thing or a burden. He talks about how he’s had the fame and money and it doesn’t do anything for him anymore. What keeps him alive is his passion for music and his fans. And he wants more of that! I loved every thing about this single and the lyrics! The video makes the song even better, as hobi is known for being upbeat , bright, and colorful. But Jack in the Box hobi seems to be a little more dark and mature. And I’m all for it, he’s finally able to show us a different side without worry about how the K-pop/ bts fandom will feel. This new venture for hope , I feel like will be us seeing him TRULY for the very first time .

I give the single 5/5, because I too want MORE. Have you listened to “More” yet?? What are your thoughts on the single!? Let me know in the comments down below.

And as always friends, until next time.

Left and Right review

By: Shanise Lachelle

Left and Right , the brand new single from Charlie Puth and Jungkook has been out for a few weeks now. And I wanted to hate it so bad , because I’m not a huge fan of Charlie. But it turns out it’s a bop and I shouldn’t even be surprised. So let’s dig into it.

The song is a cute pop bop about missing an old lover and not being able to get them out of your head. The boys vocals go magically well together and melts together like chocolate.

I may be bias , but jungkook steals the show and sounds so amazing. I know it’s been a long dream of his to fully collaborate with Charlie, so I’m happy he’s finally being able to.

The video is also super colorful and cute. With jungkook showing off some fun acting skills!

This part here had to be one of my favorite jungkook moments in the video. he’s truly just so precious!! Also this pink fit he had on, he just looked so AMAZING. never knew I needed jungkook in a pink jean set until now!!! The stylist deserves a RAISE!

I give the song 5/5, it’s super catchy and ends up getting stuck in your head. Left and right shall be on repeat this summer. I’ll give kudos where it’s due, well done Charlie Puth.

Have you listened to Left and Right yet?! Let me know your thoughts on the single down below.

And as always, until next time friends!

Life’s too Short Reaction.

By: Shanise Lachelle

As we get ready for Asespas second mini album, they’ve released an all English promo single. Let’s get into it!

By looking at the promo pictures I just knew we were getting a slower song. It was giving me forever vibes, soft and kawaii. And I wasn’t wrong at all. Life’s too Short is a message to the haters that no matter what Aespa are going to keep doing what they love and the haters should worry about themselves! And I couldn’t agree more actually.

Ever since they’ve debuted, they have been met with so much hate it’s absolutely ridiculous. From karina getting hate for getting promoted first, NingNing getting hate for being Chinese, The Aespa avatar idea got them hate and so on.

It’s like no matter how many new fans they gained they also gained tons more haters and I didn’t get it until recently.

Every girl in Aespa is a all rounder. They can sing, dance and rap. Not to mention the vocals that every member produces is strong. And any one of them could be a lead vocal if need be. Not every group has a strong vocal presence like that.

Karina for example is part of the rap line and dance line, but totally shows off her vocal range in this song and I was very impressed. I honestly didn’t know she had it in her.

I give this single 4/5, only because I was hoping for something faster and with a hard hitting choreography. But I get not every single has to be like that and they have to show different sides to them. This is the softer and vocal side. And MYS are eating it up. The girls sound amazing and look well refreshed.

I can’t wait to see what else their mini album GIRLS has in store for us. I love Illusion and I love Lifes too Short. And would’ve preferred a video to illusion but I like what we got with life’s to short and I LOVED the message behind it.

Let me know your feelings about the new singles so far in the comments down below.

And as always until next time friends…

Pop Pop Pop!

By : Shanise Lachelle

Nayeon , the nations ultimate center has finally released her highly anticipated solo! Let’s dig into it.

Nayeon is the first member of Twice to go solo and I just know she’s making the girls proud. I was a little hesitant when I heard the clips honestly. I didn’t think I was gonna like it at all and I honestly ended up loving it!

As problematic as JYP is for several other reason’s we WON’T get into today. He does know how to make a K-pop banger, and he always gives the bangers to his female artists.

Pop does a great job at introducing Nayeon as a solo artist. And if you’re a twice fan you know this song does well with fitting her personality.

The song is fun, catchy and instantly gets stuck in your head. It reminds me off 2nd and 3rd gen K-pop songs. It’s not trying to sound western and it’s totally giving Og K-pop vibes and I’m here for it.

She’s also created a TikTok challenge for the song and I’ve even tried it. And if you know me you know I shy away from TikTok dances with a PASSION. But this is one I just had to try. And actually I want to perfect it.

I give Pop 5/5 and it’s totally coming for song of the year, I said what I said K-pop fans!!

Have you watched the video and listened to Pop yet?! if not go watch it and come back so we can discuss it more!

Let me know in the comments down below your thoughts!!

And as always friends… until next time.

Itzy in Theaters Near You.

By : Shanise Lachelle

I honestly can’t believe I’m saying this again, but one of the biggest girl groups and GROUPS of the 4th generation is doing an American tour in ….THEATERS.

To say midzy and K-pop fans alike are annoyed, is an understatement. First Txt and now Itzy. I just don’t understand how jyp looks at them and don’t see arenas?! They could easily fill arena’s if they wanted to, they actually have the fanbase and that much power!

It’s so frustrating that they’re limiting the girls and their talent to school size auditoriums. I know they’re happy just to be performing safety again and on tour, but they deserve so much more.

JYP seems to have zero issues over working them but can’t seem to see their actual worth.

I will be attempting to get Itzy tickets and I really hope I can manage to get them, because they’re one of my favorites and I’m dying to see them live! I just know it’s going to be a big show.

What do you think about yet another huge group being subjected to Theater’s?! Let me know In the comments down below.

And as always friends… until next time…

CheckMate Itzy.

By : Shanise Lachelle

If it’s one thing my girls Itzy know how to do , it’s put out a killer comeback with an equally addicting choreography as well. You had the head crown movement with loco, the shoulder dance with wannabe and the hahaha dance with mafia . Itzy are PERFORMERS, and we will always be fed will with them no matter what!

They’ve returned and this July we will be getting checkmate! The brand new single and album from Itzy. The theme seems royal and classy. And the girls ALL have dark hair, I’m so excited. I do believe this is the first time they’ve all had the same hair color for a comeback.

The feels I’m getting is Bts Black Swan vibes. Like we’re going to get something dramatic but a super bop! I can’t wait to see the choreography, it also helps that JYP hasn’t spoiled the song yet and we’re all just left guessing.

I can’t wait to see the rest of the promo pictures and promo videos. And you know I’ll be right back here to gag and talk about it all with you.

Are you excited for The new Itzy comeback? What are you expecting Checkmate to sound like?! Sound off in the comments below.

And as always friends… until next time…
