Miss A has released the MV of their new song I Don’t Need A Man (남자 없이 잘 살아).
This is a very different video from Miss A. If you’ve seen all their past videos you would know what I am talking about. This video shows more of the hip hop side of Miss A.
The video is a bit confusing for me at first. I had to rewatch it to appreciate it. But I kind of like it. The best part for me was the beginning. I love that this video is all about a woman singing that she is independent. I feel like we need more of this in the Kpopland. Honestly, nowadays there are too many songs that are too cute for my liking and it’s usually singing about getting a guy or breaking up with a guy. It’s too much!
The video does remind me a bit of Destiny’s Child’s Independent Women. But I think not plagiarizing way, because after all that video was a different one. I guess it’s just the message of the song! Haha.. The black, white and red colors in the song worked for me. But I’m not really fond of the costumes that they wore in this video. Maybe I am just used to seeing Miss A wearing something different. The dance is not as powerful as their old dances. I maybe it’s because the beat of the song is different and slower compared to their previous releases.
What I do love it how Miss A can change their concept and fit perfectly to the concepts of their song. They never had that difficulty I think. From Bad Girl Good Girl, Breathe, Goodbye Baby and Touch — all these songs have a different persona of each member. I kind of like this bit from Miss A. Their concepts are cool and not wacky or too over the top! In this video, it’s the hip-hop Miss A.. And I think I would have to get used of this new concept!
This is a surprise because this song sounds less of a pop song and more of a hip hop mixed with rnb track — very different from previous Miss A songs. It’s also slower compared to other Miss A songs. But what’s great about it is that it displays Miss A’s versatility with music. But as of writing, I’m still getting used to this new track. But it’s getting to me slowly.
I love Miss A MVs because they always have an English caption released with it. So it’s easy to understand and there is no need to wait for translations. I love the lyrics of the song! Like I said above, we need more of these kind of songs in Kpopland!!! I’m too tired of listening to girls catching a guy’s attention or crying of a broken heart! I love that it says I don’t need a man! Cheers for Miss A for releasing this song! I also love the bit where they say “jinja” and “cheongmal” in the chorus! Catchy!
What’s not to love about Min rapping in the song! I know Jia always does the rap parts, but I love it that Min is rapping in this song too! Sorry I have a bit of bias for her (can’t you tell?) but I think she’s very talented and I especially her bubbly personality!
Final Verdict: This is a new Miss A sound and I’m still getting used to it! But I do love the lyrics of the song! Hurray for Independent Women!!
