Which song is a better bragging song: Shut Down or 2 Baddies?

  • So Blackpink and NCT127 had a comeback and both are bragging type of song. While watching 2 Baddies for the second time (thanks to uknowwhat’s thread), I realised that both BP’s and NCT127’s MVs have some similarities like this

    D779F818-24F4-4F69-A29C-321727A4B801.jpg


    And both used expensive cars to brag about their worth

    And that got me thinking: which song has the best brag? Don’t listen to the melody, just the lyrics.


    For me, it’s Blackpink because of this part “Need a lesson, see the necklace, see these dresses. We don't buy it, we request it, uh


    What do you guys think?

  • I don't think of either of them as particularly bragging, cause BP always is badass/brags so it's kind of like their normal mode of expression? Then for NCT I thought 2B was more like being confident and getting that bread rather than bragging


    However I prefer 2B solely because of the "it's too fast, ㅠㅠ" line

    That made me hyped


    Meanwhile, my first initial reaction to BP saying "It's not a comeback cause we never left" was "...what...I think Blinks have something to say"

  • They can, doesn't mean I'm gonna be humbled by them. Bragging about material possessions and status doesn't make me fear singers/rappers. There are exceptions, they aren't nct or bp

    Ahh I see.. well from my POV, these bragging songs are just tongue-in-cheek, not to be taken too seriously type of songs. I personally enjoy the brags and love when some acts use creative ways to say that they are great. For example Namjoon’s verse in Run BTS was so tongue-in-cheek yet so simple like a flick of your fingers to an annoying fly “You said you hot (You hot) Oh man, you not (You not)


    Anyway this should be a fun thread and not to be taken seriously.

    Interesting. I've never seen bragging songs tongue-in-cheek, I've always seen them seriously. I feel like if someone's gonna make bragging lyrics they should go all in and make it personal. That's what I think though.

  • Post both of their full lyrics


    I'm too lazy to go back to their vids to compare


    :pepe-life-support:

    Post the lyrics lol

    such spoil brats lol


    Shut Down

    Intro: Jennie & Lisa]
    BLACKPINK in your area, eh-oh
    BLACKPINK in your area, eh-oh
    [Verse 1: Jennie, Lisa]
    It's not a comeback since we've never left
    Heads turn, careful, you might break your neck
    Pink ice drip, drip, drip, freeze 'em on sight
    Shut it down, what, what, what, what?
    It's not a game since we've never lost
    Bark, because the leash on your neck is mine
    Pedal to the metal, we go two-zero-five
    Shut it down, uh-uh, uh-uh

    [Pre-Chorus: Jisoo, Rosé]
    Make the money rain, don't trip, baby
    Be humble, just sit, baby
    Praying for my downfall, many have tried, baby
    Catch me when you hear my Lamborghini
    Go vroom, vroom, vroom, vroom
    [Chorus: Jennie, Rosé]
    When we pull up you know it's a shutdown
    Pull down the shutter lock the door, shut down
    Whip it, whip it, whip it, whip it
    Whip it, whip it, whip it, whip it
    It's black and it's pink once the sun down
    When we pull up, you know it's a shutdown
    Pull down the shutter lock the door, shut down
    Whip it, whip it, whip it, whip it
    Whip it, whip it, whip it, whip it
    Keep watchin' me shut it down

    Verse 2: Jennie, Lisa]
    Nah
    You don't wanna be on my bad side, that's right, I'm slidin' through
    Bunch of wannabes that wanna be me, me three if I was you
    Been around the world, pearls on ya girl, VVS's we invested, uh
    Need a lesson, see the necklace, see these dresses
    We don't buy it, we request it, uh
    A rock star, a pop star, but rowdier
    Say bye to the paparazzi, get my good side, I'll smile for ya
    Know it ain't fair to ya, it's scarin' ya like what now?
    BLACKPINK in your area, the area been shut down
    It's a shutdown

    Pre-Chorus: Jisoo, Rosé]
    You’re looking at your next answer key, don’t sleep, baby
    Flip it over and see the price tag, ain’t cheap, baby
    Stay in your own lane 'cause I’m ‘bout to swerve(Yeah)
    Catch me when you hear my Lamborghini
    Go vroom, vroom, vroom, vroom
    [Chorus: Lisa, Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé]
    When we pull up you know it’s a shutdown
    Pull down the shutter lock the door, shut down
    Whip it, whip it, whip it, whip it
    Whip it, whip it, whip it, whip it
    It's black and it's pink once the sun down
    When we pull up, you know it's a shutdown
    Pull down the shutter lock the door, shut down
    Whip it, whip it, whip it, whip it
    Whip it, whip it, whip it, whip it
    Keep watchin' me shut it down

    Everybody jealous
    Try and follow if you can new rules

    (Oh) Stand against the dangerous thoughts (Oh)
    This time, I'm not gonna be shy (Oh)

    [Bridge: Jaehyun, Jungwoo, Haechan, Doyoung]
    In this open road covered in white
    The street brightens up and spreads out
    Out of this hidden world
    Run through the highway
    Woah-woah, speeding limitlessly
    Wanna go to the moon?

    To infinity, baby, the accelerating sound
    Nothing can stand in our way, ooh

    [Post-Bridge: All, Taeil]
    Zip-zip, show me, zip it up
    What you got? (Hey, hey)
    Zip-zip, show me
    Adjust the frequency (Oh, hey)
    Vroom-vroom, noise
    Get out of the way (Hey)
    Why don't we just drive away? Oh-woah
    [Chorus: All, Haechan, Doyoung, Taeyong]
    Two baddies, two baddies, one Porsche (Yeah)
    Two baddies, two baddies, one Porsche (Ayy-yeah)
    I don't know what you're saying
    Look at the coolness as it is
    Money and manner
    Two baddies, two baddies, one Porsche (Two baddies)
    Two baddies, two baddies, one Porsche
    You'll realize when you see me
    We're lookin' at the colorful rainbow shade

  • Interesting. I've never seen bragging songs tongue-in-cheek, I've always seen them seriously. I feel like if someone's gonna make bragging lyrics they should go all in and make it personal. That's what I think though.

    Hmm interesting. I always felt it’s not that serious because in hip hop everyone is doing bragging raps.. but yeah you do need to have some high level of confidence to brag like you mean it, I guess.

  • Stay in your own lane 'cause I’m ‘bout to swerve(Yeah)



    This is the line I like best. Kinda has a double meaning. First we know swerving into someone’s lane is pretty dangerous but she is giving a heads up or in this case, a warning(idk who they are referring to here though)


    Also we all know everyone stick to their lanes on the highway unless they are about to exit. She demanding that she can cut into your lane anytime she wants means she can get what you have but you can’t have what she has.


    At least that’s how I see it

  • 2 Baddies isn’t really bragging though. Most of it is just about pushing forward.

    Oh really? That’s interesting. I guess this part?

    Woah-woah, speeding limitlessly
    Wanna go to the moon?

    To infinity, baby, the accelerating sound
    Nothing can stand in our way, ooh


    *But I hope users realise that “bragging”here in this context is not a negative thing. It’s natural in hip hop. And I’m not shading anyone ;(

    Oh I don’t care about bragging. They definitely have bragging songs, but I just don’t see this as one. Especially not when Regular exists.

    Yeah that’s real good brag right there.. what is VVS? BP said it too... gosh I exposed myself for being to common lol

  • can't be too boring considering how many of your fellow fans can't keep out of their business :finger-heart:

    You are the nasty one here when everyone here is actually discussing while you are busy shading groups and attacking users. Seriously get help and look at the context when simple non-shady discussion threads are triggering you to this extent

  • my verdict is if i stanned your boring faves i would be this miserable too. i truly understand and sympathise :beehaw:

    every musical act including bts has at least on song with bragging lyrics it is not a big deal

    you just want to take every chance to shit on bts for no reason

    been an a$$hole and forever will be one

  • You are the nasty one here when everyone here is actually discussing while you are busy shading groups and attacking users. Seriously get help and look at the context before attacking when simple discussion threads are triggering you to this extent.

    i have seen op's shady ass in action before. her and i both know very well that she's being shady so stay out of it thanks.
