    I'm talking about hands up, the new song from cherry bullet.



    It's different from the other girl groups releases, it's quite catchy and easy to listen.
    It's because they are nugu? Or koreans aren't ready anymore to give a chance to other girl groups except the top ones?
    I can see mamamoo singing to this song and if it was from them I'm 100% sure it would have reached at least the top 3 in melon and other charts.
    It happened in kpop that rookie girl groups got attention and a big hit like crayon pop, momoland were nugu and then boom boom happened, gfriend with me gustas tu and rough.
    Do kpop groups now need something going viral to have a hit song?
    What do you think?

    Probably because it sounds and looks like alllllllll the other girls group songs, just different outfits

    it's becoming tiresome

    Not really...
    After noisy songs with shitty drops and similiar from girl groups trying hard to do girl crush this song is fresh air for me
    It's not even a bubble song , I find it different

    I don’t know but honestly Cherry Bullet deserve more attention as a whole.

    Hands up is a smart song.

    The song is good but I think it's too repetitive. It feels like 80% of the song is only the chorus

    Because look at the lyric-translation...Koreans aren't just gonna like a catchy rhythm and nice melody when they have to hear the lyrics in real-time...

    Aside from that, the song is very looped imo, but mainly no one ever takes into consideration wtf is actually being said in these songs. Just reading some of these lyrics is cringe can you imagine having them blasted into your ears and actually understanding them.

    Because it's basic and Korean's don't like basic nugu groups. You should be happy they're not getting hate

    knetz don't really care about lyrics for girl groups most of the times let's say that
    It's not like twice always have lyrics with sense, some songs are cringy lyrics wise and they are still hits...in general ggs songs are not that deep
    I love twice anyway
