BASTARZ is back with their second EP and the official single (이기적인 걸 or Selfish Beautiful Girl was a preview single that got a video for some reason) is lit!

As a follow-up to Conduct Zero, this feels a slightly cleaner, more ambitious version of that song.  It’s brag track with a bumping production, yes, but this one has a something that the previous release didn’t…a focus on the vocals.  The beat, while strong on it’s own, is somewhat repetitive in the core elements and most of the variations come from the tonal shifts that the singers bring to the different sections (along with the alternating backbeat).  It gives the song a cohesion that tracks that depend on switchups don’t normally have and it’s really easy to enjoy because of it.

Despite how infectious the chorus is, we have to say our favorite part is the bridge. U-Kwon’s vocals are spot, the overlapping harmonies with a touch of autotune make for a great effect, and the rhythm of the progression just catches you right in that special spot in your brain.

There is some word that DΞΔN may have had something to do with either the writing of this track or two others on the EP.  This particular track isn’t really his style, so we doubt he was involved with this one but you never know.

Lyrics:
Welcome everybody
you know about me?
In a word
We’re so precious
Every time we come back
We wreak havoc all Shit
Hey guys! this zone is mine

Doing better or not
I don’t care
I’m worse than badness
I don’t care if you run or not
It’s not my business
Now it’s my turn
Get away rookies

Baby don’t tell nobody
I think I’m almost arrived on the top
Shout out, Errbody
Cuz I’m gonna gonna
get you wet

I make it rain
They said Ho-woo Ho-woo Ho-woo
[In korean, ‘rain’ is pronounced ‘Ho-woo’]
I make it rain
Localized heavy rain, Ho-woo Ho-woo

Money long long
I got money to blow-ow
Money long long
I got money to blow-ow

I make it rain
Localized heavy rain, Ho-woo

You will get angry with envy
We know well
You will point to us and call crazy guys
That’s not wrong
But no problem
I’ll do spit instead of plagiarism

Believe or not
I don’t care
I’m the best in the best guys’ group
Right or not
It’s not a problem
Just take it

Baby don’t tell nobody
I think I’m almost arrived on the top
Shout out, Errbody
Cuz I’m gonna gonna
get you wet

I make it rain
They said Ho-woo Ho-woo Ho-woo
I make it rain
Localized heavy rain, Ho-woo Ho-woo

Money long long
I got money to blow-ow
Money long long
I got money to blow-ow

I make it rain
Localized heavy rain, Ho-woo Ho-woo

Finally it’s our turn
We can control everything, Yeah
Baby don’t tell nobody
Don’t tell nobody body
Now Let’s fill up the glass Uh uh
Watch yo underwear
Now Let’s drink
Stop making a film NG

I make it rain
They said Ho-woo Ho-woo Ho-woo
I make it rain
Localized heavy rain, Ho-woo Ho-woo

Money long long
I got money to blow-ow
Money long long
I got money to blow-ow

I make it rain
Localized heavy rain, Ho-woo Ho-woo
