This is Kenneth.
This 2016 probably is my year as a multi-fandom kpop fan, I’ve been blessed with so many eargasmic music that has been taking over my music playlist. Talking about music that gives eargasms, one top artist we all know shouldn’t be excluded in the list, yes, I’m talking about Girls’ Generation’s ace vocalist, Kim Taeyeon. Who haven’t fallen for her charms and sensational voice yet? Well, if you haven’t, you’re really missing out a lot of the good stuffs. Taeyeon definitely is the definition of good music.
Taeyeon probably had the busiest 2015, with the group’s back to back comebacks with ‘Party’ and ‘Lion Heart’, following her very successful solo debut with ‘I’, then ended the year with TaeTiSeo’s Christmas Album promoting ‘Dear Santa’, Taeyeon’s voice was literally all around the place. But, us fans are all greedy, we wanted more, and yes, Taeyeon did not failed us. (Not to be misunderstood, ironically, I want our Taengoo to have enough rest too).
Taeyeon is back with a Digital Single ‘Rain’. Well, according to SM Entertainment, “‘Rain’ is a medium-tempo track with a jazzy and modern sound. With lyrics about longing for a past love, the song makes listeners enjoy the rainy day blues! Hope you enjoy her new single.” Together with the very beautiful ballad track ‘Rain’, another ballad track is included, called ‘Secret’.
Before I further talk about Taeyeon’s latest offering to her loving fans, watch the music video here:
As expected from SM Entertainment, their music video caliber is definitely with high and over the top standards, just by merely watching, you can really get into the emotions Taeyeon was trying to exude. At first, Taeyeon’s haircut was a no for me,but when I saw the teaser images, I was like “she looks like a fairy, a goddess”. About the song, can I just out it to a one word description?, “PERFECTION”. Taeyeon has done it again, no doubt she’s definitely a force to reckon with. ‘RAIN’ achieved a perfect all-kill, ‘SECRET’ charted as well. The music video had exceeded 1.2 million views in less than 21 hours.
I just have to point this out tho, I don’t know what with SM Entertainment’s marketing strategy these days, promoting Taeyeon and Super Junior’s Ryeowook at the same time as solo acts are a little bit risky. Considering the fact that its very obvious that Taeyeon has a higher chance to come out successful, Taeyeon is very overrated, which is not a bad thing, but still, she is very overrated, I’m worried about her overshadowing Ryeowook.
At this very moment, Taeyeon’s ‘Rain’ is currently no.1 in MelOn, Mnet, Bugs, Olleh Music, Soribada, Genie, Naver and Monkey3’s real time charts. Currently no.1 in Bugs daily chart. So far, GFRIEND is still leading over all according to instiz chart, but, only in a very little amount of percentage, that is why I believe Taeyeon would be no.1 in no time.
Ow! Here are some of Taeyeon’s jacket images for ‘Rain’.
Please show Taeyeon lots of love and support! Taeyeon fighting!
