Earlier this year, at least I think it was this year, Meng Jia, a member of JYP's girl group Miss A called it quits with the company and moved to a company that she probably believed would treat her better. The year's not even up and she's making her solo debut with her song “Drip” which I'm hoping is going to rock my socks off. I guess we'll find out. By the way, the teasers for this release were way confusing because there were 3 separate and different dates that the music video was supposed to be released.
Anyone else getting Hyuna vibes from this release? So the music video seemed to be Jia and her gang abducting a man and torturing him. Then they cover his head and throw him back out into the tunnel they abducted him from. I'm not sure what this has to do with dripping unless they sexually tortured him, which that would make a lot more sense. The entire music video was just Jia and her gang dancing and flashes of scenes from the storyline Banana Culture were trying to piece together. Not the best use of footage. I would have liked to see more storyline and less of Jia twerking, nothing against Jia.
This song is promising for Jia and her solo career. However, like I mentioned, it sounds too much like a Hyuna song. I love Hyuna and I love 4Minute but I'm not a fan of Hyuna trying so hard to be sexy, much like CL. I don't feel like it's their true personalities. Jia put out a great song that hopefully will gain some following. The synthesizers in the intro and verses was the perfect blend of hard biting and hidden undertone. I loved how they built up towards the chorus. My favorite part of this song was actually Jia singing in the pre chorus because I felt like this part of the song had the most moment. It was climbing higher and building on itself. However, I'm not a fan of the chorus. Not that I don't like a good drop, but first off the high frequency tones are annoying and if you're going to do a drop, you should build it up more and then drop it low. This song seriously reminded me of “How's This” by Hyuna and in my own personal opinion, that is her worst song to date.
Sorry I kind of rambled on about the song and various other artists it seemed to be influenced by, but I hope you enjoyed this review of “Drip” by Meng Jia. Hopefully this was helpful and useful for you. Thank you for the support and please like this post and comment and share it if possible. See ya guys in the next one (which hopefully is Seohyun, but probably won't be).
