티아라 (T-ara) – John Travolta Wanna Be Review
T-ara have been one of those idol groups that I’ve watched evolve over time. There last singles were kind of bizarre and didn’t really make me think that the songs chosen for them were picked for their “strength.”
John Travolta Wanna Be is an aptly named title with the first single “Roly-Poly.” I’ll be honest, I thought it was pretty bad. But like most Kpop that I drop, it slowly stuck in my head and I took a liking to it. The second track “Really Really Like You” isn’t as strong as the first track, but at least it’s not another unfortunate ballad.
The rest of the tracks are remixes of older released songs reworking them into club songs. It’s not really surprising, but ballads still don’t work with faster backing beats.
T-ara have potential and it looks like they’re starting to find their voice, but the rap sections of songs are still unnecessary.
