WINNER has returned with a colorful summer breakup song, "AH YEAH"! Let's take a look at why this song may be a Bop or a Flop.
WHY IT'S A BOP:
1. It's a refreshing theme!
I can't recall the last happy breakup song I've listened to. I think that's a good indicator that "AH YEAH"s message is unique. The song perfectly captures the feeling of freedom after a clean break up with the lighthearted beat and cute delivery. This is the type of novel song that I wanted to hear, and WINNER didn't disappoint.
2. The chorus is adorable
Seriously, this chorus has "REALLY REALLY" catchiness potential. The lyrics are simple enough for listeners to follow along to, and the choreo is super adorable to match the song. Good songs need good choruses, and "AH YEAH" had one.
3. MV is perfect for summer 2019
The MV was a perfect way to kick off summer, which isn't too far away! There were a lot of yellows, greens, light blues and reds used to really brighten up the video and the boys themselves really seemed to capture that summer spirit well. This is the type of lighthearted, fun song we needed to make this summer the best yet.
WHY IT'S A FLOP:
1. It isn't... but it is missing something
"AH YEAH" isn't a flop. But it is missing something, musically.
My best guess is that it lacks a "killing part", or one part of the song that is easily the most memorable or powerful. Don't get me wrong, the song, in general, was extremely well written and composed, but it didn't have the "I like you" killing part like "REALLY REALLY" had. I wish they could have spiced Yoon's build-up section with something similar to the "I like you" killing part.
So what do you think? Do you think "AH YEAH" is a bop or a flop, or somewhere in between? Let us know below.
