I feel like it's been a minute since I've done a Jpop review. I haven't been as active on my website as I'd like to be, but here I am bringing you all a new Jpop review. And by new I mean three months ago. I'm reviewing “Suga Sweet” by Faky. If you didn't know, Faky is my favorite Jpop group at the moment. They are my favorite group and Eir Aoi is my favorite soloist. I've heard good things about this release from all sorts of people. I think this may have been my most requested song to review.
I see why this was my most requested song. That was amazing. First off, the girls were gorgeous as always. They were in belly shirts just enjoying life. I know the song wasn't about freedom and that feeling of being absolutely free, but the way they were dancing and the entire vibe of the video had me feeling like that's what they were trying to convey. Maybe this person's love is like being without tethers. I love the video because it's something we can all relate to; that desire to be free from all cares and worries. Free like a bird.
Where were they? There were a couple of landscapes in the video and all of them were gorgeous. The strange thing is I don't know if I'd choose a dirt ditch or whatever that was for a music video but it went well and it looked really good for being a dirt ditch. If they wanted something earthy, they should have come to Arizona and seen the Grand Canyon or Antelope Canyon.
If you didn't know, Li'l Fang is my bias in this group but damn, Anna was looking good. They all looked good to be honest, but Anna caught my attention in this video.
The song had a couple of interesting elements in it. First off, it was a very simplistic song. It was far from complex in structure and sound, but a lot of the best songs are simple. We are fed a guitar riff at the beginning of the song to bring us in. The beat builds like your typical pop music, but randomly in the middle of the song, it switches it up and we are introduced to a new sound. Reggae is brought in and is short-lived, but it definitely is a nice change.
For a large portion of the song, we are given English lyrics, and thank goodness they aren't cheesy, cringey lyrics. They aren't the best, but as far as Jpop goes, they were Heaven sent. My favorite part of the song, of course, is the chorus, but the part where they sing “sweet” was especially satisfying.
Honestly, I'm so glad I have such awesome followers that would request such an awesome song, knowing well that I'd love it. I think this might honestly be my favorite modern Jpop song. It will have to compete with “Rush” by Riri however. Shout out to Maggie Smith for requesting this song. I don't have anymore Faky on my request list, but I will seek out Faky on my own. I love this group. Please support Faky. I noticed this video has been out for three months and it doesn't even have 300,000 views yet. We can do better. Thank you for your support for me. I don't feel like it's deserved, but I appreciate it. Like and share this review on social media. If you have any non Kpop review requests, please leave them in the comment section. Thank you again and I'll see you in my next review.
Like I've mentioned before, music has no language barriers, it knows no language. I want to dedicate this section of my website to reviewing in any way, shape or form other languages of music. This includes Jpop, Mandopop, OPM, Vpop, Latin music, Russian, German, American, Venezuelan, you name it. If you think it's worth giving a listen, I'll listen to it and give you a review.
