Now There Is No Tomorrow – Trouble Maker

Trouble Maker is back with a new song. It has been nearly 2 years since we have last seen these two singers together on stage promoting a new song. Can I just say wow? Like, they are quite successful and I can see why the company decided to put them together again, but I think many people know that their debut song, Trouble Maker, is their best song ever. Not hating or anything, but I have friends that agree with me on this topic. However, this does not indicate that this comeback was crap, because it was not. It was amazing. Also, they were hit with a little bit of controversy with their music video, which I will talk about later. Also, I have a lot to say about the music video. Most of focus will be on the music video itself in this video.

The song is pretty cool. Not as great as Trouble Maker though. There was something in this song that did not yell out “Trouble Maker” to me. This song lacked the power and the energy which Trouble Maker has a lot. Even their dance was a little lighter than usual. The vocals were not as great and sounded very drawn out. Hyuna’s rap fitted the speed of the song and sounded really good. The chorus is pretty catchy and I have to admit, with the dance, the song would’ve been hard to pull off. I actually miss Hyuna singing. I don’t know why, but the song feels empty without her voice. She raps and have her own moments, but they tend to be covered up or layered with Hyunseung’s. Yeah, you can say I was disappointed with the song, but that latin salsa feel to the song and instrumental is quite different and sounds pretty cool. The lyrics are pretty cool and fit the music video quite well.

Three words that describe this video: Porn, porn and more porn. Like seriously 75% of this video is sex. Sex in caravan, sex in car, sex in public. But the video still also has a pretty cool music video. We see a couple, cheating on each other. The guy has sex with two other girls, while the girl is at a party (not sure if she is cheating, but if the guy is having sex with other girls and she is a party, I think it could be safe to say so). But needlessly to say that the girl was pretty  pissed off when she found the guy. Then they have sex, where they makeup, but she is pissed off as well and breaks it off. Then they get together again, and as a couple, they put their life at risk and stand around cars that are doing doughnuts around them. Hmmm… about that. Yes, you see that there are some similarities between this video and Rihanna’s, but we cannot really say that the director copied. It looks the same, but there are always its differences. Did I like the video? I am a guy. A normal freaking teenage guy. And then there was Hyuna. In a bra…. Having sex….. What do you think?

The dance is lacking as well, however it seems that it was choreographed to perfection. Like everything in this dance confuses me, but it looks amazing. Put that with the live performance and seriously, for pulling that off without gasping for air is something that I wonder. Like, I would be like dying when we get to the first chorus.

7.5/10. Disappointing, yes, But still a great comeback. And since this is my first day back in like 10 days, I would like to just say for the SHINee poll that was conducted in the review of Everybody,  Everybody was selected as the best song of the SHINee year!!! Hahaha!!! Congrats Everybody!!! I won’t be making a poll. but what is a much better Trouble Maker song? Trouble Maker or Now? Put your answer in the comments below. ^^

NOTE: I love the heading for this post. MUAHAHAHAHAHA….

Song

This song, I find very awkward for some reason. I really like it however it really is not that great. I don’t know why I said that but it just is. It has this Michael Jackson feel to it. Okay I know why,  I like the song but not the singers.

Okay back to the song. It has this Michael Jackson feel to it especially when JS has his solo parts. The chorus was very catchy and I liked it a lot. Hyuna’s rap was eased into the song really well. However what I think would’ve made their song much better was a male rapper right after Hyuna’s rap. The section in between of Hyuna’s rap and JS’s solo was bland. Yes, I know the gap was very small however I think a male rapper would fit very well with Hyuna.

Music Video

Definition of sexy much? This music video is really, really good. Got me to the edge of my seat when I first watched it. But to be honest, the second time around I was bored. Third time and I wanted to watch something else. It was pretty werid when I watched it the fourth time. There are scenes that I think should not have fitted in, like the scene when they are singing on the roof of the building. Also something I am very confused about. JS was in Hyuna’s room and Hyuna was about to open the door. If I am right, they are in a hotel. If my observation was right, JS would have to be a pretty good climber or jumper to get back to his room. Or the hotel must of been a motel and consisted of only one floor. Oh well, to my next point.

The music video consisted of a Mr & Mrs. Smith theme, however the characters are not married. They battle it out but both I assume are dead by the end of the music video. Unless Hyuna’s a good bullet dodger and JS can walk through fire.

Live Perofrmance

Not a fun performance but a very sexy one. I just don’t understand the viewers. Yes I would say the performance was too sexy however somehow they don’t realize that much of the dance was changed. Actually I lost interest in the whole performance because of the change. Visually there is not much of a change however my mind is now put off the performance because it changed somehow.

And The Rating?

8.5/10 would be the perfect score for this song.

Have Fun Watching. 😀 Troy
