I'm going with the obvious on this one. To me, this is a song of seduction and a little ego boost for Mr. T.O.P. He talks about the things he has and what he brings to the table yada yada yada. Then he further proceeds on telling the subject of the song how they feel and how they're getting pulled into this alluring song. Not only does he want to seduce, but he also wants you to pay attention to the smooth flow that is penetrating your ears
So, we have T.O.P. Of course! But we have many different sides to him to enjoy. Sleek rapper, cliche classic rap pimp, cozy comfy, dressy casual, throwback Bond, eclectic rebel, and sophisticated actor.
I read on some YouTube comment that this is a response to SNSD's "Gee", but I really don't know. I don't see the relation any where. Anyway! From what I gathered in my head, this is a song trying to convince the other to come out of her shell. "Stop being shy." "No more games." "I want you to my lady." In some ways, it's a little alluring, but in a more smooth, down low, and at your own pace way...if that makes any sense. I guess you can say the girl has the control in this video, basing it off the lyrics.
Although NassuN is very much a rapper, the music has a very smooth, slick R&B sound. It feels very familiar and comfortable. I don't know if Korea has heard anything like this, but I have. It's been used in the U.S. and it is effective for making the ladies' hearts flutter. It still maintains a little hip-hop flavor, but it's more mellowed out to appeal to the lyrics.
Obvious statement, we have NassuN and
Both of these music videos have a few similarities to them, but they also have some obvious and not obvious differences. They're both kinda seducing songs, but they have two different tones to them. They also share a suave, confidence that men can use to model themselves and women can easily swoon over. An obvious similarity is that they're both shot in black and white. Shocking! They also have a few similar elements featured in it like women, a fancy car, a dog, and a Be@rbrick. But the first video's shots went along with the lyrics more and the second took a more abstract artistic approach. So, who's the winner of this comparison. I honestly don't know. If I weigh out my options, it's seems a bit unfair. I've enjoyed T.O.P longer than NassuN and I'm not a fan of MBLAQ, but I've grown tired of "Turn It Up" due to overplay and I can still listen to "O-IWI-O" like it's nothing. Let the record show that I've listened to both tracks equally.
They're both really great songs and music videos in their own way. So, I'll call this a draw and let you guys decide. (^^)b
