SS501's new track Love Ya gets leaked! [updated]
It looks like history is repeating itself with SS501 - as with their REBIRTH album last October, the track Love Ya from quintet's upcoming mini-album Destination was recently broadcast on MBC's Chin Chin Radio Show, inadvertently exposing it to the public before official release. Since then, audio rips have surfaced on various Korean & Chinese portal sites, garnering the attention of netizens and the panic of many fans worldwide. We won't be posting the video in this article, but I can promise you that the album is shaping up to be quite enjoyable for anyone that's liked SS501's style of music in the past. Love Ya is a mid-tempo dance song underlined with a sad piano & strings tune and addictive chorus. This new track follows SS501's pattern of bringing forth music with dismal yet hopeful melodies. Alternatively, Let Me Be the One (그게 너라) is a ballad remake of singer-songwriter Andre Mieux's track of the same title, composed by Andre himself along with Steven Lee and Sean Alexander. As we've reported in the past, Steven Lee is a huge producer who's completed tracks for TVXQ, Super Junior, f(x), Wheesung, KAT-TUN, V6 and more. Furthermore, Sean Alexander co-wrote TVXQ's You're My Melody, SHINee's Amigo, Taeyang's Sinners, Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus's Shining Star and SS501's previous hit Love Like This. DSP Media reportedly purchased copyright permission for this track and worked with Mieux, Lee and Alexander for this Korean reproduction. As the members actually performed this track live at Dream Concert the other night, fans can watch this performance guilt-free below: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15rnfCmWvZE And if you're curious, here's Andre's version of Let Me Be the One, which was released in 2006: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlHGvDvcm_o The members will also include Crazy For You on this album, which was performed live in concert in Japan a few months ago as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EvuZQ_9xN84 It's been confirmed that Destination will include four tracks: Let Me Be the One, Love Ya, Crazy For You and Forever (영원토록). As you may recall, this album was scheduled for release in early May, but was delayed due to some internal issues, then pushed further back due to member Hyun Joong's car accident injuries which have kept him bedridden for the past two weeks. Remember to support SS501 by purchasing their album after its release on May 31; stay tuned for their live comeback on Music Bank next Friday on June 4! UPDATE: It's been brought to our attention by S0leill123 that Love Ya seems to be a Korean reproduction of an English track as well! As people who have heard this track already may have noticed, the track bears an undeniable resemblance to Michaelangelo's 2009 track Let Me Love Ya. (Note: If you don't want to hear SS501's track yet, you probably don't want to listen to this either.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFSboOJXlvg As the album isn't out yet & DSP hasn't issued any statements regarding this matter, the copyright details behind Love Ya are unclear; however, Michaelangelo has closely worked with both Steven Lee & Sean Alexander in the past with tracks like I Say Go, so it's basically certain that there will be no legal turmoil over this. Although some fans must be disappointed that SS501's track isn't brand new, it's kind of cool to have an English version of sorts, don't you think?
