f(x)’s Amber delivers a solo, English track about how it feels to move from one culture to another and what it means to be accepted.
Amber’s rapping can be a little hit or miss in Korean, but her English rapping is lackluster (at least in this song). We would have skipped this one if it wasn’t for the message, which is something that a lot of people may need to hear on a bad day. The style of the single is very Eminem Not Afraid, with the story within being more autobiographical and uplifting. While not as good as the similar single her solo EP, Beautiful, in either lyrics, vocals, or production; it has its place in the inspirational pantheon.
