Who is your choreographer?

Cherry Bomb is one of those songs that grabs you from the moment it starts.  That slightly screwed chant as the music escalates in the background with a kind of eerie sequencing only to have the bass hit you in the face.  The rhythm of the rappers and the chanting hypnotize you in the best way as you find yourself moving to groove.  The production overall has a lot of thrust, but still isn’t overwhelming…except for the odd switch at the instrumental towards the end.  But even that works in the end because they bring the beat back in and balance it all out.  And, of course, Doyoung and Johnny with those vocals absolutely bring it all in for a landing, adding that smoothness to offset the roughness of the overall sound.  It’s a BOP!

As for the visual itself, if there is one thing we can say about NCT 127 and the whole NCT experiment so far is that the boys are some fiyah dancers.  They have a knack for mixing intricacy with the stylishly simple.  From the moment most of us saw the video for The 7th Sense, we were blown away by how they managed to make a few guys dancing in an empty room so much fun to watch.  The official video for Firetruck was a little much, but the live stages were amazing.  Limitless went back to the soundstage still entertained.  Now we get what seems like a mixture of the two styles with a little bit of Dream Perfect Regime editing thrown in to spice it up.  It’s a visual representation of what this group brings to the table in terms of their music and it just works for them.

That slide at 1:04 to 1:13…man!

Hurry hurry avoid, right

Hurry hurry avoid, right

Hurry hurry avoid, right

It’s time, necessarily
I’mma do ma thang
In front of waiting room is full of people
They can’t take their eyes off
Follow me everybody, yo hands up in the air
We back get away
I’ll burst soon, everywhere
Swallow me
Then you’ll have a stomach
It’s a mature Cherry Bomb
Nobody knows when it’ll explode
popping your head like a Kingsman Chip
no fireman this is fireworks
cherries in the sky high
I’m the biggest hit
I’m the biggest hit on this stage
I’m the biggest hit
I’m the biggest hit on this stage
If you are happy and you know it
clap your hands yo (in this beat)
If you are happy and you know it
clap your hands (in this beat)
Hurry hurry avoid, right

Hurry hurry avoid, right

Hurry hurry avoid, right

Hurry hurry avoid, right

I’m the biggest hit

Everyone hush
The thrill which is just before explosion
It tastes like a cherry bomb
If you treat me easily, it’ll be trouble
Already you’re falling in me
It’s spread now
The feeling which is just before explosion
It’s awesome, do do that
I’m gonna sing, na na na
I pulled the safety pins out
Maybe everyone will be surprised
we gonna make it
I’m the biggest hit
I’m the biggest hit on this stage
I’m the biggest hit
I’m the biggest hit on this stage
If you are happy and you know it
clap your hands yo (in this beat)
If you are happy and you know it
clap your hands (in this beat)
Hurry hurry avoid, right
cherry bomb feel it yum
Hurry hurry avoid, right
cherry bomb feel it yum
Hurry hurry avoid, right

Hurry hurry avoid, right

Where the end is
How far can I go
Now It begins, just the half of it
The look that I stepped back, it’s over
I don’t want to wander in the busy world
With just a single flame, I burn my everything
I’m the biggest hit
I’m the biggest hit
Uh Hard rock Scalp
Head shot Pop
No talk
Wherever I went, I didn’t have confidence
But I applaud you guys who hates me
Ay because of you guys, I came to myself
I don’t want to be chased
So now I’m talking in front of you guys
I won’t bow in front of you guys
Keep watching, I hope you guys watch me everyday
Hater hater talk talk
Whatever I hear from you, I can digest easily
Take a fist or stone or a gunshot
Strong NINE, Take it cherry bomb
I’m the biggest hit
I’m the biggest hit on this stage
I’m the biggest hit
I’m the biggest hit on this stage
Yeah
If you are happy and you know it
clap your hands yo (in this beat)
If you are happy and you know it
clap your hands
If you are happy and you know it
clap your hands
Hurry hurry avoid, right
cherry bomb feel it yum
Hurry hurry avoid, right

Hurry hurry avoid, right
