Making their comeback today is The Boyz. They previously made their debut at the end of last year with their debut track titled as Boy. Giddy Up is the title track of their second mini-album, which is titled as The Start.
Giddy Up is a really funky and groovy track to listen to. They don’t hold back from the very start with the retro instrumental. Interestingly, the pre-chorus felt like it quite long. But with the awesome chorus, it was worth the wait. The chorus has a burst of energy that makes the song addictive. I really thought the hook during the chorus was fun and quite catchy as well. While the instrumental does feel extremely packed here, the vocals do make it feel much smoother. Their vocals are nice and the rap sequence for the bridge was cool. I did expect more rap in the song, however, which is usually what happens with a team that has many members and this type of upbeat song did call for it. So I was surprised when it was only limited to one not-so-long-lasting bridge. Also, the track does feel relatively standard to the other releases this week. There were cool elements but I don’t think there was anything particularly outstanding. Despite this, however, Giddy Up is another solid release from the new boy group.
I think this is a really well-done music video. The pinball machine set looked cool and I think it is unique in a way. The way they transitioned out their hockey shirts to their school uniform outfits were also really cool and unique, once again. There isn’t much else to the video but don’t worry. It is still one fun, energetic and well-presented music video to watch.
The choreography for this comeback is amazing. Their sync-ness with each was awesome, which already brought their performance to a whole new level. On top of that, some of the moves they pulled off looked awesome (such as 1:06 – 1:11). And of course, they had to include the horse riding move (I would have literally called them out if it wasn’t there).
