Monsta X is about to release their second EP in four months and, while Trespass didn’t really impress us all that much, their new single is looking a bit more promising that their last.

Musically, the song is very upbeat and has a nice flow to it.  While the production is not as dynamic as it was on Trespass, the vocals are much better and there seems to be a better flow to the different part of the song.  Visually, gone is the faux gangsta posturing that made their last video hard to watch.  This time they mix up their rap image with a little lighthearted fun and a loose storyline that ties all the scenes together.

Update:  Now that we’ve had a chance to look at the translated lyrics, this song is a mess.  While some of this could be chalked up to cultural differences, the entirety of the song’s words just don’t flow well.  For English speakers who like kpop, this may not be a problem as it’s easier to get past these kinds of things when you can’t really understand what’s being said; but, this does kill what looked like a competent track from the group.

pop!gasa put a rush on those lyrics…

Lyrics:
Come to me, quickly, like it suddenly rained
Come to me, quickly, they’re so bland
Come to me, quickly, like it suddenly rained
Come to me, quickly, they’re so bland

Oh yeah, it’s raining outside, drip drip
Girl, quickly get on, vroom vroom
Call me right now, they’re calling the police
Because of your sexy cola bottle body
Girl you’re so pretty, that’s the error
You’re crazy virus
I wanna steal everything from your head, shoulders knees and toes
Even your crooked legs are so appealing

When you put your hair down (it’s dangerous)
I think I’m crazy, what do I do (what do I do)
1 minute feels like 1 second, am I rushing?
All those guys who take their time seem like fools

You want this too, it’s only me, look around
Other guys can only try to take a taste but I’m only looking at you
Don’t think too hard, follow your heart
Don’t hesitate, just take the next step
I’ll take my steel bag and vroom vrrom

Come to me quickly vroom vroom x4

I got a phone call
How many guys are in your steel case phone?
Make some space for the other guys
Space to put their empty dishes after all the food is gone
They’re no fun, they don’t move hearts, they’re so bland
All of you are not seasoned at all
I’ll put some salt on you, go home and cry
Now go tattle to your mother

When you’re crossing your legs (it’s dangerous)
Whenever you reject me (what do I do)
I think I have to give it at least a hundred tries
But the other kids don’t even know your style
All those guys who take their time seem like fools

You want this too, it’s only me, look around
Other guys can only try to take a taste but I’m only looking at you
Don’t think too hard, follow your heart
Don’t hesitate, just take the next step
I’ll take my steel bag and vroom vrrom

Come to me quickly vroom vroom x4

Erase the clock hands between us
Come to me, quickly, make all the other guys jealous of me
You’ll have no time to be bored
Come to me, quickly, like it suddenly rained

Come to me, quickly, like it suddenly rained
Come to me, quickly, they’re so bland
Come to me, quickly, like it suddenly rained
Come to me, quickly, they’re so bland
