Girls’ Generation (소녀시대) – The Boys Maxi Single
The Boys Maxi Single is the first single of Girls’ Generation to hit international shores with the support of the US label. Including the English language version of “The Boys” and multiple remixes, acapella, and instrumental, “The Boys” is a one song overload.
The English language version of “The Boys” actually sounds better than the Korean language, but the song is still strange with the addition of break-beat verses.
The remixes don’t bring much more to the song, even with the addition of Snoop Dogg. It feels like the US label is working as hard as they can to get people to buy the single.
I don’t feel like Girls’ Generation will be able to break internationally with this single, especially considering the overload.
