4Minute – Diamond Review

4Minute’s Diamond is their Japanese release for many of their songs as they worked to break the Japanese market. Like many other Kpop acts, being part of the Hallyu wave usually starts with Japan since the music markets are somewhat similar.

A couple of 4Minute’s recognizable singles were re-recorded in Japanese, leaving the choruses for many of the songs taken from the original recordings.

Essentially, Diamond is a best-of album for Japan with two songs in Japanese. Taken from the previously released singles, there isn’t anything that hasn’t been heard before.

It’s the same produced songs, though 4Minute are beginning to show more talent beyond this release.
