Kirin is back with his New Jack Swing era sound and, this time, he’s bringing Jay Park with him.

About finding someone who makes you feel happy and content no matter where you are as long as you’re together, this song is amazingly upbeat.  It’s bright and summery with just enough attitude to make it more than a boring, paint-by-numbers track.

The up and downside of the track is its New Jack production.  For nineties babies and people who love the music of the era, this will be a nostalgia bomb in your brain.  For those who were born after that time, you might find the music stings and odd melody patterns a little hard off.  They do tone it down, though, as each change in vocal performance isn’t accompanied by a matching beat switch that was fairly common during the time.  It also leaves out the extended instrumental breakdown.

Kirin is, of course, true to form with his 90’s era style.  He has just the right vocal and rap style to handle this kind of track.  He knows exactly where to put the emphasis and the energy and he never sinks below the verbose beatwork.  To say that we never expected Park to go this route is an understatement.  While we are used to him getting in his R&B mode every now and again, he’s never shown much of an interest in older styles of the genre.  The closest he gets is when he does a ballad that has a bit of a throwback sound, but he still keeps a modern aesthetic when it comes to his vocals.  This is a nice surprise as he gets the swagger of the era (that matches the current one), but he also gets the fun and his performance reflects that.  Nice job.

Lyrics:
A summer night that I can wear shorts and no jacket
I’m leaving my car at home and riding the bicycle
Baby, leave your wallet too baby
Just bring your body
Cuz We about to party tonight

This is a sign I’m only sending to you
So let me remain a boy forever
In other words, this summer
I will sing a song only for you

Baby I don’t need no other city
Because you’re right in front of me
I don’t need no other city
Because the moon is shining on us

MIC check 1, 2
Boom boom park
yeah and it don’t stop
If you follow me girl then
i will take you to the top
Wherever you go, let’s go together
You’re my lady forever
I’m going crazy, so crazy
If I’m with you, I’m happy no matter what
I’ll show you if the mood is right
The tattoo on my butt
I’m joking baby baby
Don’t be flustered
Comfortably lean on my shoulder
Let’s enjoy this summer night

Your shaking reflection on the Han River is my fantasy
The moon is creating our shadow
image in a magazine
No matter how much I look, we fit together so well
I don’t wanna say goodbye
I’m singing a melody with you again
it’s all right
There’s nothing more that I want right now
I feel good today, the other guys are jealousy
You’re classy and sexy
I’ll only follow you like a dog

Baby I don’t need no other city
Because you’re right in front of me
I don’t need no other city
Because the moon is shining on us

Like this summer night river
Everything flows away
But like the bright moon in front of you
I’ll always shine on you

Baby I don’t need no other city
Because you’re right in front of me
I don’t need no other city
Because the moon is shining on us

I don’t need no other city
I don’t need I don’t need
I don’t need no other city
I don’t need I don’t need
