THIS. OOOOOO SHINaaaeeeeeee!!!
i see there's a few people that say that it reminds them of NCT. I can admit that at 1st listen, it flashed me to EXO's "Obsession". Dem Jointz is part of the creative team of both tracks. they also share a focus on melodic rapping + a similar production scheme like some NCT tracks. It is a strong brash + bassy song + as we know, it wont be everyone's cup of tea. its also great to know, after listening to the whole album, that there are many other great tracks included in this comeback ("CØDE" is among new favorites off 1st listen).
that being said. this is up my alley because SHINee did it SHINee's way + their vocal style + deliver still shined through. SHINee is at their point of their career where they can go for anything they wanna try. if this was the direction they wholeheartedly chose, all due respect to it. its just a bonus to me that they knocked it out the park for me in their own color. Ahhh + just seeing them move... oooooo! IM ALL HERE FOR THIS ERA! Welcome back guys!
