I guess BP is so they can distinguish themselves from the original Rania? I hope Alex raps in Korean too <3 Can't wait till they comeback

blackjack_doomey Tuesday, December 27, 2016

oh shooot.. Alex's Rap is so goooooood!!! i hope this song will come out great. looking forward to this! goodluck, BP Rania!

MeniNova Tuesday, December 27, 2016

So is this Alex and her backup girls? If this doesn't scream publicity stunt, then I don't know what does. Also if she has been learning Korean, why is she rapping all in English? We get it, you're good in English.

fightinggirlssss MeniNova Wednesday, December 28, 2016

the comeback will have both a korean and english release

MeniNova fightinggirlssss Wednesday, December 28, 2016

And so? How is it going to change the fact that it is a publicity stunt? Artistes and groups like Jay Park and Ukiss have had Korean and English Versions of their songs and that didn't change anything.

YG_Trash MeniNova Sunday, January 8, 2017

Well it's not really "Alex and her backup girls" since she barely appears in the MV or choreo AGAIN. :/ DR Music is treating her like their promotions pet and it is sickening. PS: She's been learning Korean for like a year now, do you really expect her to know it good enough to rap in it?

MeniNova YG_Trash Sunday, January 8, 2017

Yeah I actually do. Some of the foreigners in Kpop may not be comfortable speaking or even rapping/singing in Korean, but that is what they signed up for so they have to do it. Alex is getting special treatment because she is a token foreigner.

lume90 Tuesday, December 27, 2016

Sounds good.  Is T-ae & Xia still in the group?

JessicaRabbit123 lume90 Tuesday, December 27, 2016

No. Alex, Hyeme, Seulji, Jieun, Youmin, Ttabo and Saem (from the original lineup).

lume90 JessicaRabbit123 Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Aww ok

nami_chan Tuesday, December 27, 2016

it sounds good, I can't wait for the full mv

Nattie98 Tuesday, December 27, 2016

This is so good, really

Bule_Ciel Tuesday, December 27, 2016

The colorful dress that Alex is wearing is made by her own hands, can't believe she designed that wow

littlemissnoname Bule_Ciel Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Why not? Looks hideous lmao

Bule_Ciel littlemissnoname Wednesday, December 28, 2016

umm ... well its not easy to design clothes not everyone can do it

littlemissnoname Bule_Ciel Thursday, December 29, 2016

Thats true. But neither Alex can when I look at the dress

pink_oracle Tuesday, December 27, 2016

I approve of amending the name to acknowledge this is a brand new RaNia. I do not approve of yet again making the mistake of over promoting the foreign member like it's a hot new gimmick.

JessicaRabbit123 pink_oracle Tuesday, December 27, 2016

They highlighted her rap for the last teaser too... But no one complained then. I don't see what the issue is, it's not like the others won't be getting screen time or lines...

3percenter pink_oracle Tuesday, December 27, 2016

How about because she kicks ass at it, and it sounds great? Why is it perfectly natural for a lot of Koreans to like and admire American Hip Hop from afar, but when the same thing is locally infused with kpop you call it a "gimmick?" Alex isn't some mercenary like Snoop Dogg who drops a few lines for a kpop group and never even sees them. She is not only a full member, but the LEADER of the group.

pink_oracle 3percenter Tuesday, December 27, 2016

Did you call me Korean? To clarify I'm not associated with SK at all. Alex being announced as the leader is a joke, how can she lead them she can't even speak Korean? Don't give me that, she's learning, BS. There are Korean American idols who are still not fluent. It makes Alex look even more like a gimmick that they call her the groups leader. I don't have a problem with a non Asian joining a K-pop group. I have a problem with her being treated like she's the most amazing thing about that group, she's just a pretty rapper. Who can only rap in English it would seem.

JessicaRabbit123 pink_oracle Tuesday, December 27, 2016

"Just a pretty rapper", bruh... If that ain't every damn rapper in an idol group lol. I get what you mean but Alex is the most popular member and thus, will get commented and adored more. It's not her fault that her fans are hyping her up. Just like with TWICE, for example, Tzuyu literally smiles at the camera and there's 1000 comments on how she's slaying and I'm like...??? But I guess thats the usual thought when it comes the center, visual or popular member(s). The company itself hasn't played favorites with anyone since she's been in there so it's not like they're trying to make it all around her. As far as her leadership skills, I haven't seen anything in regards to that to judge. I know she's been helping the producers with lyrics and arranging music and shit, but I haven't seen her LEAD the team... I'll judge when I see it, you should too.

pink_oracle JessicaRabbit123 Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Wait what, Alex is the most popular member is SK? The gimmick worked?

3percenter pink_oracle Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Leadership is about being able to offer professional and life experience (wisdom) to those you are responsible for, and having the ability to inspire, and motivate... all qualities that can be imparted without having to say a word.

3percenter pink_oracle Wednesday, December 28, 2016

I hope you are not naive enough that you can't comprehend that kpop is a business with the one and only goal of making money. Business is the art of convincing people to open their wallets to you, and they only do that if they are being given something they want or like. If people are intrigued by Alex, and like her, then hyping her gives Rania publicity that they would otherwise not get. If Tzuyu's face launches a million open wallets, isn't that the freaking point? What the hell are you whining about? What's fair to the group members? You think the kpop company executives, company shareholders, broadcast companies, and advertisers give a rat's ass about what is fair or not? Grow up.

pink_oracle 3percenter Thursday, December 29, 2016

Okay, but when a member can't find her phone at the airport and the plane is boarding and they need their leader to tell their manager who is waiting up ahead what's going on she's not a lot of good is she? And yeah, pushing your most popular member to the front works for sales for a few years. But then you have the Suzy effect where the group becomes a joke and crumbles pathetically. Good for the agency, good for the star, not so good for the fans and the rest of the group.

3percenter pink_oracle Thursday, December 29, 2016

Again... none of the company decision makers give a crap about any of that. If Suzy alone can make more money for them than Miss A as a group, guess what... the other members of Miss A, and the group itself, are going to get booted to the back of the bus. Kpop business is all about creating buzz and demand for whatever seems to sell, and then milking it for all its worth. Then they move on and create another money maker. If Alex generates interest in Rania... a group that has struggled for publicity for 5 years... then that is exactly what the executive suits at the company are going to do. It might not last, but they will push it until it proves to no longer work, and then they will find another angle.

pink_oracle 3percenter Thursday, December 29, 2016

And I'm going to continue to point out what a cheap and obvious gimmick it is and wonder if Alex is a savvy business woman or a casual opportunist.

LilBmw Tuesday, December 27, 2016

The outfit where she looks like Tinkerbell isn't that great but the other one (fluffy pink coat) is really nice

Bule_Ciel Tuesday, December 27, 2016

when is the full mv coming out?

JessicaRabbit123 Bule_Ciel Tuesday, December 27, 2016

The teaser says the 30th, which is the 29th of your in the States.

Bule_Ciel JessicaRabbit123 Tuesday, December 27, 2016

oh, thanks
