If the title was "the queen B" that would've been cool..
Son Dambi is back with her 3rd Mini Album The Queen! Indicating that she's the new queen of hm, well I'm not sure what kind of queen yet, k-dance? Anyways let me tell you I'm loving this album! Yes, Aox doesn't come out with negative reviews all the time! haha.
The concept is quite clear victorian, Marie Antoinette hair, flowy dresses & swords. I dunno where the swords come in but its quite medieval isn't it? After billions of years teasing us, Son Dam Bi's 3rd Mini effort, after Saturday Night, is quite cool. I didn't listen to Saturday Night a lot, it might be a longshot to say but Queen might probably get as much attention.
Surprisingly, 1st moments of listening to Son Dambi's songs, it can come off annoying because she has a very high pitch in singing, Queen actually sounds very very similar to Kylie Minogue's Wow, but I don't want to start any plagiarism games. The music video is random, funky disco, sorta mixed with Fantastic Children castle in the sky thing you know. Check it out...

Usually Son Dambi is known for her addictive dance moves & I couldn't find any. Perhaps it'd be more clear in her performances. Also for a title track, is "wake up" suppose to be catch phrase? I dunno but that's the only word I understand in the song. We know Dambi's not #1 in english pronounciation but I don't think I understand even the korean pronounciations lol. As funny as it sounds I actually hear a little of Orange Caramel influence in the song haha.
Here's the tracks:
1 - DB Rider
2 - Queen
3 - Beat Up By A Girl
4 - Can't U See
5 - Super Duper
6 - Queen (inst.)
7 - Can't U See (inst.)
Panda says: I became a fan of Son Dambi after her infamous "I'm Crazy" mini album. Her aura follows suit in this album as well. I really like DB Rider, I was wondering what does DB even mean, then I'm like, oh! I get it haha DamBi Rider.
Beat Up By A Girl is pretty fun to listen to as well, but Can't U See is a ballad that also can't be missed. The rare ballads in Son Dambi's collections should be really appreciated considering she actually has a very soft subtle voice that you don't imagine to be in dance songs. But of course Son Dambi has to do the opposite of everything haha. Super Duper is very easy going, with a soft addicting beat as well.
I dunno why Queen is used as the title track, any of the other songs in the album would've sufficed. I thoroughly recommend this whole album, if you're sick of newbies songs trying to impress you and junk. This album will easily follow your mood and soothe your ears.
