    Egoist Is LOONA's Best Solo

    [​IMG]


    Over the last year or so LOONA has brought to kpop an onslaught of professionally done sole efforts from its various members, that have brought forth a diverse array of reactions, from fanatic enthusiasm to skeptical dismissal.

    Whatever you think of LOONA and their individual efforts, I urge you to check out Olivia Hye's Egoist. If you have already and dismissed it, give it another go. Few debut offerings from an idol reach the heights Olivia's single attains.

    A seductive culmination of the disparate parts LOONA suggests with its worldview thus presented over the last year.

    Feminine and empowering. Seductive, yet with moments of kept innocence. A celebration of aesthetic yet still remaining introspective. Idealistic yet not without self-awareness. Its sensual sound nearly melancholic at times, but never without aspiration. Instantly appealing and memorable yet not in a manufactured or gimmicky way. Its dark romanticism underlined with the accompanying video that is steeped in soft creams, suggestive reds, and shadowed blacks, with a cool blue intermission to give the theme room to breathe.

    At the center of this is Olivia Hye, who is a born for the camera. Confident and mature, yet softly vulnerable and feminine. You can't take your eyes off her. Her vocals perfectly fit for such fare.

    My favorite solo effort of 2018, and perhaps my favorite overall track of 2018.

    If Olivia Hye's Egoist is an indication of what to expect from the greater LOONA project, I eagerly anticipate their debut.

    You should too.


    Yours Truly,

    Emanresu

    I completely agree with Egoist being their best solo, no doubt. But I wouldn't say that it is the best (solo) track of 2018. There have been so many other great solos this year

    Heart Attack begs to disagree.
    But Egoist is a fantastic song, too.:teeheek:

    I think my fav 2018 solo would be Sudden Shower by Yong Jun Hyung
    I also like TEN - New Heroes, Leebada - Crush on you, Samuel - Teenager and many more

    But my all-time-fav solo will forever be GD's Untitled, 2014
