Featuring a production that has some 90s throwback flair, Playback’s self-titled single is catchy as hell.  Despite the bright colors of the visual, the girls do not have cute, airy voices and have some sounds grounded in R&B…which means that they will likely be coming with something a little different for their second outing (should they get one).  The downside of the track is the lyrics, which we think are supposed to be about realizing that you got played and rewinding the situation, but don’t convey a clear idea despite cultural differences.

pop!gasa…has something to do with playback.

Lyrics:
What are the girls doing? They’re just talking about boys
Now I’m gonna hit the playback
What’s the use of pretending? Just be honest
Now with him, hit the playback
hit the playback hit the hit the playback
hit the playback hit the hit the playback
What are the girls doing? They’re just talking about boys
Now I’m gonna hit the playback

He said the moment he first saw me, it was clear as a picture
He felt his heart dropping to the floor
He said, whatever he did, he missed me so he couldn’t do anything

Everyone is telling me
That I’m already losing
I keep missing him, I’m getting mad

What are the girls doing? They’re just talking about boys
Now I’m gonna hit the playback
What’s the use of pretending? Just be honest
Now with him, hit the playback
hit the playback hit the hit the playback
hit the playback hit the hit the playback
What are the girls doing? They’re just talking about boys
Now I’m gonna hit the playback

I’m lazy these days, maybe I’ll change my number
I said I didn’t like him several times but I guess he doesn’t get it
How come I don’t like any of the guys who like me?
I guess I’m attracted to someone who I can’t have

That’s what I said
But I keep thinking
Getting annoyed the one time he didn’t call

What are the girls doing? They’re just talking about boys
Now I’m gonna hit the playback
What’s the use of pretending? Just be honest
Now with him, hit the playback
hit the playback hit the hit the playback
hit the playback hit the hit the playback
What are the girls doing? They’re just talking about boys
Now I’m gonna hit the playback

Where we went
What we did
All day, I’m telling stories about you

What are the girls doing? They’re just talking about boys
Now I’m gonna hit the playback
What’s the use of pretending? Just be honest
Now with him, hit the playback

What are the girls doing? They’re just talking about boys
Now I’m gonna hit the playback
What’s the use of pretending? Just be honest
Now with him, hit the playback
hit the playback hit the hit the playback
hit the playback hit the hit the playback
What are the girls doing? They’re just talking about boys
Now I’m gonna hit the playback
