Volume Up – 4 Minute


This is a great song. I don’t really like 4 Minute that much. I am not a fan and do not like any of their song. I find most of their song awkward or not appealing. This song on the other hand is much different. I love it and am totally digging it. It has that Spanish feel to it that we got in Mona Lisa with the accordions and now this song has some instrument which I unfortunately can’t identify. Yeah, me and music theory don’t go well together, but I still passed class  by playing “Ode To Joy” and an Elvis Presley song. The rap in the song is the most concerning part of the whole song for me. I am actually in the middle with the rap. Half of me says the rap should not have been included in the song while the other half my body is saying the rap was pretty good and did fit in. Yes, I feel quite weird. I also heard the song is actually quite controversial because of its lyrics suggesting that girl groups are becoming more sexier and are losing their main job of becoming singers but instead as sexy models. I am quite disappointed about this because 4 Minute is actually telling the truth. Many girl bands nowdays are losing the singing factor and instead are becoming really inappropriate singers/dancers to watch.

Music Video

The music video actually adds a different style to the many videos of KPOP. This song is nothing about sexy dances (There are sexy dances in this song however they are not focused on that much in here). The song is much more myertious, like Brown Eyed Girl’s Cleansing Cream or Sixth Sense. There is so much here. Take their setting. They are like in these places which may or may not creep you out and give the sense that not that much people enter these areas, so we can say that the girls are like some where trapped. The mysterious vibe is added onto by the creepy looking vampires that happen to appear behind them just before the first chorus breaks out. Wait, are they really vampires or DEATH EATERS? KPOP and Harry Potter have finally intercepted each other. LOL. I can now go and reread Deathly Hallows for the 15000000000000000 time. The only thing I have to complain about in this video is the very start. Hyuna is possessed in the music video. Yeah, beside showing us she is a vampire, there is not much to say. Oh and if Cube Entertainment was trying to scare their viewers, they failed. My experiences so you can’t comment here.

Live Performance

Okay, yeah. This song changed nothing with my point of view on 4 Minute singing live. They just can’t do it. Beside that, the dance is pretty cool. I like it a lot. Most favourite part is actually when 4 of the members are circling the fifth member and pointing at her. Also when Hyuna raps and they all put thier hands up was pretty good as well. WHY CAN”T DANCES BE THIS SIMPLE? THEY LOOK COOL AND AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

And The Rating?

I would give this song an 8 out of 10. A Really Good Song.

Have Fun Watching. Troy 😀

Okay, This must be asked…
