Well, CL is doing things. Musical things…
MyY BOYS WON’T HESITATE TO RUN UP YOUR BOYS.
As a song, it is okay. Can’t say I hate it. I actually really like the beat. I can dance to it and all that. The end part where she is singing is the best part of the song. Other than that, she is a poor rapper, and that is pretty much that. Lyrically she is still developing and I don’t hold that against her, but I do hope she has assistance on her album. There are some okay lines, but overall nothing memorable. The song overall really isn’t memorable, but I don’t mind it.
The video is the better part of the song, mainly for the choreography. I know a lot of fans want high production value, but sometimes simple shit is better. Plus the video might be expensive but made to look…cheaper. Anyway not much to say.
I can’t really say that I am excited for CL. As a listener she neither has quantity or quality on her side. With only two offerings, and both bad to slightly average, I just don’t see it for her. Her promo has been on point (for the most part), she has gotten to perform alongside Skrillex and Diplo in their environments, which has allowed her to be able to garner possible new fans. She has been given spotlight by several different magazine sites from Complex to even Vogue. The idea that CL could reach multiple markets (at their intersections) is exciting…but the problem is that CL has no content to deliver except for two songs…four if you count her Korean solo songs. More if you include 2ne1. And to be frank her work isn’t…well…it isn’t.
I’m not going to get into the whole racial aspect of her image because I don’t need fans trying to bite off my head.
Either way everything about this is simply tepid. It was a release there is some hype in the process of being developed. But overall this Buzz single is making little buzz in what is supposed to be it’s intended market.
