[Review] Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo – Berry Good

Berry Good has returned to the stage with a song that has probably the most annoying title to write out and pronounce. I am only joking. But seriously, need to send a few words of thanks to the person who created the copy and paste function. Berry Good last year returned with Angel and Don’t Believe, two songs that put the group on my radar of groups to look out for.

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo is a change up from their previous songs. This one focuses on more a brighter sound and falls within the typical branch of KPOP songs, something that their previous track did not conform to. However, that being said, the typical KPOP sound did work well in the song. To be honest, it was a mistake to listen to the song while watching the video (more on that later), so my first listen ended with me concluding that the song was probably one to stay away from. But after a few more listens (without the visual presence of the music video), it is a really catchy song. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo is extremely difficult to say on its own, so obviously, it makes it harder to sing that line. But it made the song catchy. The instrumental uses a Summer tone, which made the song feel fun. The vocals were okay, but I don’t think it was their best (Angel takes that crown). The only probably that left me disappointed was the rap sequence. It was not needed. I absolutely hate it when they talk like that in songs because it tends to ruin the mood of the song.  But overall, it is still a pretty catchy track to listen to.

Unfortunately, Berry Good is not a money-making machine for their company. And sadly, their comebacks end up being missed. Which means that their next comeback would have a lower than normal budget. Even crowd-funding was required for this comeback. The lower budget could obviously be seen here and it was such a low-quality video that I can’t bring myself to rewatch. As mentioned before, I watched the video and listened to the song in one go for the first time. And because of the video, I almost decided to not return to the video. It is probably because viewers as myself are more accustomed to aesthetics and better quality videos, that this video felt bland and boring in comparison. On a better note, the use of colour was great, just the camera didn’t catch the boldness the colours added and made very feel dull. If it was shot with a little more money, I could see it being a typical KPOP video. And that to me, would have been an improvement. On another side note, but the teaser look liked it had a much better budget than the actual music video. What happened there?

I saw a live performance on YouTube today for the track. The dance is pretty good. Sure, it doesn’t feel memorable (it is quite generic) but nonetheless, it looks good and suits the song.

Song – 8/10
Music Video – 2/10
Performance – 7/10
Overall Rating – 6/10
