+ZICO’s Soulmate+


Recently ZICO just dropped a single titled Soulmate, he’s also preparing for this tour, the collaboration is featuring the diva IU. IU is known for her sweet image, she has been collaborated with artists like G Dragon, Song Minho, and recently ZICO, but with ZICO its not her first time to work with ZICO, both artists have been collaborated together for Marshmallow in which it was IU’s track. After vacuum from social media, he’s back by announcing his tour titled King of the Zungle, I really hope the upcoming album from ZICO will featuring MINO ๐Ÿ™‚

So the video was great, I love the vintage-gy feeling from it, the video is really funny especially the elevator scene with CRUSH on it was super funny, cute, annoying at the same time (I love CRUSH, I wrote about him about his newest album) I think its the most eye catching moment.tumblr_pcvo8w9eZC1x6mncjo2_400

The first part of the song kind of reminds me with Dean’s style of music, for the record ZICO’s vocal is amazing here, and I really like it. IU was able to portrayed this mesmerising lady in the music video, and her vocal just adding the sweetness to ZICO’s raps. I really like the way IU has her own character on the vocal because its sounds sweet, but not the girly, bitchy, or acting cute like voice, but its the clear ones.

From what I heard the director of the music video has been working with WINNER before its Oui Kim, the music was inspired by Jazz and Poptime was part of creating the masterpiece. The song itself is talking about youth, and love, and falling in love during your youth time its a must (although I don’t have one just yet ๐Ÿ™‚ ).

In the middle of their youth
A girl and a boy live on a small island
The mood is like the weather here
Bright red fruits have blossomed
The other side felt a little unfamiliar
But now itโ€™s the place I cherish the most
Like bedsheets I donโ€™t want to come out from

But its more than just about falling in love, its about breaking up too, I feel like the song is almost like a confession the way both artists represents the song. I really like the way their video was created especially the mirror scene, because I think its super cute and un predictable, because you’ll never know about your soulmate ๐Ÿ™‚

You waited for a long time
Hello, my soulmate
Everything became more like you
A transparent knot has been tied
You canโ€™t leave this place, not even for a moment

So what do you think about this comeback ? I really enjoy it, although I’m not the streaming type of fan, but I guess the music video is worth to watch. I really love the fact that ZICO is able to remove the idol type, and really just be an artist by himself outside as a group Block B. The reason why I really love someone thats able to be a chameleon is that, being an idol is not forever, but being an artist will, at some age later on we’re not going to act cute anymore, especially there are younger group debuting every year in South Korea, but being different is amazing ๐Ÿ™‚
