The song is about Sori being tired of these men always hitting on her, especially when she has no interest in them. She doesn't care how competent, handsome, or whatever they are, they won't capture her heart that easily. I think this is a good confidence boost for women to have and show that they can have standards. Women don't have to settle for uninteresting men or change themselves either. It also shows that it's okay to follow your heart/gut feeling to find the man you want.
I remember hearing this around the release of the mini album and it flowed with her previous style. It's a nice blend of hip-hop and electro-pop elements. It's danceable, but has a strong attitude and subtle sex appeal to the melody that you can move your hips to or strut your stuff.
With South Korea's obsession with figures, I always thought Sori actually had some curves to her. She's a beautiful woman and she has a nice classy, but sexy style to her. Although, her last dance outfit I wasn't particularly fond of. The video is rather dark with little hints of whites and blues. There's a simple story to the song, so the transitions have some sense to them. The production isn't all that high, but the message is still effective visually.
The lyrics to the song play between fashion and men, which I think is clever. It's not completely straight forward. I guess the fashion items could be metaphors for men that don't fit their personal style. It's also used as a bribery or boast for the men to flirt with the ladies, but they're not interested in just wealthy, good looking men. This is also another confidence boost for women and not settling for the superficial.
Unlike Sori, this goes with the trend of electro-pop with a runway flare. It's classy, sleek, and easy to move to. In some ways, the sound can be refreshing, but still the same thing that's been heard before. I like the smooth music transitions from the soft voices and the chorus has a nice burst of energy to emphasis the lyrics.
Of course this is a step up in production from "Dr. Feel Good" and "Pop Pop Pop". Seeing this classy, sleek, and stylish transformation was quite refreshing from the controversial garbs of "Dr. Feel Good". There's no raunchy dancing either. The choreography is quite minimal and when it's highlighted, it's nothing extremely special. I think the main focus is the vocals and the mature transformation. The sets and metaphor set ups are quite impressive and effective to the lyrics. Thanks, YG, for your contribution.
Obviously, both of these songs have similar lyrical content. I think Sori executed it better than the ladies of RaNia. Their lyrics were repetitive and I was sad to find out that the first and second verses were exactly the same. Sure, it's easier to sing to the catchy tune, but I like progression. There was also an actual story going on in Sori's video as opposed to little scene gimmicks. Although, the production was way better in RaNia's video and their styling was overall better as well. Both musical styles are nice and different from each other. For now, I'm listening to more of "Style" than "You're Not My Style", but maybe because it's newer and the sound is what's trending right now. In the end, I believe Sori wins this round despite RaNia having almost the better video. What do you guys think? Did you enjoy Sori or RaNia?
