Full Versions of “Connection” & “Wedding Dress” in English


Pre-Order: SOLAR International Album BUY NOW!
I love this song! I think it would have been a perfect follow up to Wedding Dress for an international release. I think his English is the best in this song, the lyrics really work and its different from the stuff he’s done, but also got that Taeyang flare!

Full version of Wedding Dress in English below the cut!

I am happy the lyrics aren’t cheesy or anything, as was one of my fears. I still like the Korean version better, maybe cause there is an MV with it and everything, I don’t emotionally connect with the english one as much, even though I can understand it I feel there is some awkwardness with the flow of the lyrics and music and wish it was a bit smoother. Forgetting the pronunciation, I don’t think its bad,but I still think Wedding Dress in Korean is just much better lol

Connection (Lyrics)
I got a good feelin’ about this one~
To all the fly women across the globe (Girl you know you’re my connection)
Girl you know you’re my connection

It’s true, I got a thang for you
All of the things you do
Got me feeling butterflies

I know you feel the, cause it shows
Trust me girl, I see them glow
Every time I look in your eyes

I never thought it could be
Cause truthfully you showed me
Live everyday (pretend?) my dreams
Where I will never find you

But you’re the real thing baby
Our chemistry is crazy
And I’m really feelin’ this connection inside

Love is real, this my confession
Heaven sent, you’re such a blessin’
I feel a love connection when I’m with you

All them girls, they keep me guessin’
Had my picks, but your my selection
I feel a love connection when I’m with you

When I see you, from day to day
There’s so much I wanna say
That I try not to come up, it’s wrong

From now, I just say what I feel
Cause this connection is real
This just feels too right to be wrong

I never thought it could be
Cause truthfully you showed me
Live everyday (pretend?) my dreams
Where I will never find you (I shouldn’t find you~)

But you’re the real thing baby (oh you’re the real thing)
Our chemistry is crazy
And I’m really feelin’ this connection inside

Love is real, this my confession
Heaven sent, you’re such a blessin’
I feel a love connection when I’m with you

All them girls, they keep me guessin’
Had my picks, but your my selection
I feel, a love connection when I’m with you

Okay! (I’m feelin’ a connection)
Lady! (I’m feelin’ a connection)
Baby! (I’m feelin’ a connection)
You got me a feelin’ a connection…
That’s right I’m feelin’ a connection…
All this time, that I’m your destined
All you gotta do is say yes and…

RAP
I’ve been around girl, and that’s no lie
Seen my share, but no comparin’  you, damn you’re just too fly~
The way you lick your lips and just touch my spots
I need you miss in my life, like hit me to hop
You’re a goddess, so here’s my confession
I been lost till I found you, my blessin’
You’re beautiful, I’m talkin’ more than complexion
Mind, body and soul, can you feel the connection?

Love is real, this my confession
Heaven sent, you’re such a blessin’ (You’re a blessin’, baby)
I feel a love connection when I’m with you

All them girls, they keep me guessin’
Had my picks, but your my selection
I feel, a love connection when I’m with you

  1. I Lovee it !!!!
    I find connection better, i dont know, but his english sounds better there,, ithink ..
    By wedding dress, i dont understand one part, what he’s saying at 1.08-1.11 ???

    Anyway,, it tooooo perfecttttt ! 😀

      1. Ya, it looks like that, ihope it 😛
        first, i tought; what is he saying here; something like; weror, of something like that? :S

        Enfin, thankss 😀

  2. I really love Connection!! It’s soo good! love the pace and the flow to the song. and i find myself bobbing my head from the start to finish. His english is awesome in this song and the lyrics are just fine. 5/5 ^^

    WD, well i like the lyrics, but the pronunciation really gets to me. i can’t fully enjoy the song without getting lost in what he’s singing. and like Kay, i do prefer the Korean version better…

  3. This is amazing!!! I predict Connection will be on repeat on my ipod.

    Like most people, I like the Korean version of WD better but the fact that he’s singing in english is enough for me to love it lol.

    Also, does anyone know if we can purchase the songs one by one like you normally can on itunes or do we have to buy the whole album?

    1. I hope we can buy them song by song…i already bought Solar so i don’t want to buy the exact same songs twice…I Will howwever buy the new ones:D

      Taeyang all the way.

      I like the Korean version of WD better…but i really like some of the lines in the english version.

  4. Connection!!!!! Song is just awesome.
    Wedding dress…Korean Version will be my fave even if I don’t understand it lol.

  5. Wedding Dress is okay. His English definitely better in the whole version than in the previews. But I still love the Korean version more. See, this is what happens whe YG releases the Korean version first. We fall in love with that and the English versions just can’t compare.

    Connection is my new jam! It’s pure LOVE!! I already know it’s going to be on repeat along with YB’s other songs. The beat is freaking fresh. Definitely want to know who composed/produced the song because YB definitely needs to work with him more! It was amazing! YB’s English was close to perfect; you couldn’t even tell it wasn’t his first language. I could totally see Connection being played on the radio in English speaking countries!!!

  6. CONNECTION!! I LOVE IT!!
    The song has a really good vibe. Now I’m wondering if they’re making a choreo for this one (ahem Shaun Evaristo), but I think this will make a good dance.

    I still prefer the Korean version of Wedding Dress, I think it’s more heartfelt (or maybe because it’s the original one). I can’t understand some of the lyrics, maybe he had a hard time recording this because he need to sing the lyrics faster (or rap-like, ungh I can’t explain it) compared to Connection which is a bit slower.

    Wah I can’t purchase his album now but hopefully I can save enough money immediately to buy this album!!

  7. I’m giving wedding dress a few listen, and it’s all g0od. ^^ but yeah the k0rean versi0n’s still my fave.. C0nnecti0n’s really g0od th0ugh

  8. People try requesting Connection on your local hiphop/r&b radio stations to see if they’ll play it. I’m not sure why they won’t, but jut give it a try.

    hehehehe

    1. since most stations allow you to request online, shouldn’t/could’t we be more focused in our request. liike everyone request in the cities with large urban populations coupled with larger than average asain pops. atl, dc, ny. atl. vegas, la, seatle,

      if we make a list of the top urban stations and how to request, i seriously think connection could be played on us urban radio.. the vibe is so nice and such a cool summer jam vibe/back to school hit.

  9. I think everyone agrees… CONNECTION is my new jam! I let my friend listen to it and we both just sat back bobbin our heads and snappin our fingers lol it has a great old school feel. Not like old soul music but 90’s early 2000’s R&B

      1. Im thinkin… a MV kinda like usher “you remind me” where he walked with different girls around the mall dancin and singing lol but whatever they do with the MV I just hope its not a club video… yall know what I mean….

        1. I think something with him just being cute and adorable haha he’s done evil, hard, sweet but nothing where hes adorable to the max….i want that….THAT and a shirtless scene LOL

  10. WD should have been called Timeless. It just never gets old.
    His accent was actually better than I thought it would be.

    And Hands down to Connection. It’s my new favorite song from Solar. I’ve seen a lot of people saying they like it, so both YG and Taeyang should take a hint from that.

  11. i agree with everyone that pronunciation in WD is not as good.. but the only struggle is trying to figure out what he’s saying, once you figure it out or find the lyrics to it.. it’ll be fine.. im probably the only one that likes WD eng better cause I can understand it and feel the pain without needing to imagine the MV in my head or look at the english lyrics everytime i listen to the kor version..
    my only critique is they should’ve stuck with “oh no~” instead of “oh yea~”

    and yea, connection is absolutely amazing.. pronunciation was perfect.. and the rapping was dope too..it could definitely break the US charts if they tried..

    1. it’s just a thought that popped in my head, but i think that this english version of WD was probably recorded around about the same time as the english version of WUA shaun and lyle mentioned, which is probly why his english isn’t as polished as it is in CONNECTION. just my two cents.

      1. Now that you mentioned that, there’s this part in the chorus:

        “If you just know that we belong to each other”

        The choreo matches that part some much; another thing in the part where: “I can see you in your wedding dress (as you’re walking down)” the choreo matches that to a T.

        My guess, Shaun, Lyle, Aimee worked with this Eng version than the Kor. version.

    1. ^
      In Wedding Dress yes (I would say awkward but not too), he should work on pronunciation.

      But it’s amazing in Connections, he sounds really good on that song.

  12. I’m SO SO happy with Connection. love the song, love the beat. love his english.

    but I found him slurring his words alot in WD because of the large amount of words in it and it ends up sounding unfathomable for some parts. thought he could do better, and i’m sure it’ll evoke some mixed reactions from the original korean WD lovers. oh well..

    anyway, CONNECTION BABY! MY JAM!

  13. CONNECTION is A-MAZING!!! 🙂
    *hands down*
    It just takes me back to the days; those classic feel-good R&B jamz. This is my song right here. Taeyang is just too awesome for words right now. You gone did us proud boy XxX

  14. Connection sounds like something they would play on the radio here in the US! It had that “driving on a nice summer day with your windows down” kind of feel and I love it lol It really has that robin thicke kind of vibe too. I can tell that he’s trying a different sound with this song. I like it though =]

    I love the Korean version of wedding dress even though I don’t understand anything lol but in his English version it’s a little hard to understand but I’m happy that he’s at least putting effort to reach out to his international fans =) I think with each performance of these songs his English will get better. I’m glad there’s an official english version. YouTube is gonna go crazy with covers of these songs!

    1. Oops I meant ” Ashley krystle” what a fail lol oh and I forgot to add at the end FIGHTING! and taeyang come to CA! =]

  15. i love the feel and the lyrics for connection! this is without a doubt the best song he has done in english, i would love to see a music video for this one. i think it would be amamzing. its one of those songs that are just timeless [well all of his songs are ;P]. every time we think that he has out done himself, giving us the greatest song; he comes out with a song that is even better. one of my absolute favorite songs from him, i’m absolutely hooked. haha ^-^

    i loved that he did wedding dress in english, b/c i think like most of his fans who love the korean version and have seen many different translations, i was curious about what the english lyrics would be. and i must say i love this version too! kay-san does make a good point, even though it is awesome, i can hear that in the this version the english lyrics don’t quite flow as nicely as in the korean version. but its still amazing!

    domo arigato taeyang oppa; as well as kay-san and ATY!!!

    taeyang oppa wa sugoi!!! <333

  16. Forget about IBT, Connection is THE song.
    It needs an MV like yesterday.
    Btw, the rapper deserves credit as well. He did very well.
    I wonder what Koreans think about it.

    1. Kfans have been going crazy over since last night – pretty much universal LOVE. <33333

      Finally a song that everyone – kfans, ifans, nonfans? – can love, and what does YG do? Tuck it in as the "other song" with zero promo. Sigh. It's Take It Slow all over again, IMO. Hopefully, the song will still catch on by word-of-mouth.

      1. Haha.
        Finally indeed!
        And I get what you mean. YG’s way of thinking is a total enigma. I was mad surprised when I found out they had told Taeyang Take It Slow wasn’t good. I mean, Korean and int’l fans were all over it as soon as it came out.
        I’m sure this time, they were also not expecting Connection to receive such good response.
        Always expect the unexpected I guess.

        1. I actually meant YG as in the company itself since from what I remember, Taeyang said he went around the building asking different people to give him their honest opinions about TIS.

          And it may be just me but I think Connection would have been a better title track than IBT since most of Taeyang’s fans are more into R&B than pop anyways, but like Toozdae said, we can’t complain too much since we’ve been spoiled quite a lot already.

      2. I agree too. I loved Connections just from the previews and so did most ppl. YB’s fans would love it cause it’s R&B so no talks of selling out, so many ppl say they could see it playing on the radio, it has that hip hop feel that YG promised. Yet it’s the song that they stuck in the album with no promo.

        I can see why they didn’t promote Take It Slow because of the content, but never understood why they didn’t want it on the album. It’s pure win. YG does the same with IBT and Connections. PPL didn’t love IBT cause it’s the typical kpop song. Connections is fresh and YB’s voice and english is love. But I can’t complain since I got 2 doses of YB this summer.

        1. I’m not sure if it was YG himself who thought Take It Slow was bad I would presume that it was his other business peers I mean come on were talking about the man who created the lyrics of “Sinner” so lyrically sinner is way darker than TIS lol. I guess he really loves to see fans reactions pulling on their heart strings LMFAO!!

  17. ha ha! now i know why Sean and Lyle were laughin at Tae’s pronunciation of ‘wedding dress’ in the sample they were given for the choreo. seriously he sang it ok in the korean version but it looks like they used the sample version for this tune!! oh well still luv u our Bae Bae and did i say how i just love love connection, those born in the nineties might not fully appreciate it so just leave it to us 80s babies cuz this tune takes us way back!!! am thinking Tevin Campbell, Keith Sweat….u get me?!!!

  18. Yes, YB, i can feel the connection with CONNECTION!
    I love the song and the fact that it’s in Eng makes it so WOW!

  19. I love Connection!!!! It sounds like a 90s RnB song, which I freakin’ love. I love the rapper, the beat, the lyrics, and BAEBAE =)

    If that’s the old english version of Wedding Dress, then they should have put WUA’s too. =) It’s ok for me, it’s not as smooth as Connection (which is on repeat right now) but not bad either.

    I really hope Connection makes it to the charts! So proud of Baebae! MV please!

  20. So someone try explaining to me why YG didn’t choose Connection as the title track for his international album?
    If I were them, I would have totally made an MV for it and upload it on his Youtube site to boast sales.
    I’ll so be requesting this song on the radio.

  21. Ok, so Connection may be one of my favorite songs of YB.
    If he ever debut in the US, it should be with this kind of sound, really…

    I know it’s old but this song really reminds me of an old Jon B song…where RnB was at its finest (sigh)

    YB has a beautiful voice, his english is more than understandable, the production is simple but catchy and effective

    And I agree with yall, this song needs an MV!!

  22. wooohoooo!!!! the album is already number 12 on itunes!!! come on people those who haven’t pre-ordered yet.., do it now!!! let’s all unite and make it to the top! ❤ 😉

    1. I’m waiting to purchase mine the moment it’s released. ^^ Just think it’d be cool to see it climb steadily till midnight, and then do a huge jump at midnight. Though at the rate it’s climbing, there may not be much of a jump to make! ^^ Btw, does iTunes (US) release everywhere at 12am EST, or it different for each time zone?

      I’m going to throw in an additional $.99 and purchase Connection separately as well. Anyone with me? ^^ Let’s take the song up the charts, and maybe YG will take note!

      1. I like that idea Silly! Maybe if YG sees how popular Connection is separately, he’ll do more promotions with it!

      2. I’m doing the same, waiting for the release to purchase on itunes and yes, I’ll be buying Connection separately~

        I want it to top ITUNES!

      3. I’m doing the same thing.
        Since I’ve already bought the normal edition of Solar and didn’t actually like IBT, it makes sense that I purchase only Connection.

  23. it might just be me, but i feel like he’s still speaking in a different language here @___@

    i can barely understand what he’s singing…to be honest.
    I think i still prefer the korean version even though i can’t understand it..lol

  24. Like everyone’s said…..Connection definitely deserves an mv! And it should have came yesterday YG!!! IBT mv made the song so much more epic so imagine what an mv would do for Connection!

    Hopefully the spies are reading this blog and taking note of our wishes!!!!

  25. omg. i love the song connection! his english is understandable. i have it on repeat right now and i keep bobbing my head to it. i reminds me of ne-yo. such a good song! hehe *^^* ❤

    english version of wedding dress…i prefer the korean version. can't really understand his english too well in that one. but it's okay i guess.

  26. I can’t wait for the credits to Connection I wonder who produced the song from the arrangements to the lyrics composition kekeke a few more hours left i guess until i find out.

  27. I think I might be hearing wrong at a few places, so correct me if you think you’re hearing something else lol:

    Connection (Lyrics)

    I got a good feelin’ about this one~
    To all the fly women across the globe (Girl you know you’re my connection)
    Girl you know you’re my connection

    It’s true, I got a thang for you
    All of the things you do
    Got me feeling butterflies

    I know you feel the same, cause it shows
    Trust me girl, I see them glow
    Every time I look in your eyes

    I never thought it could be
    Cause truthfully you showed me
    Live everyday (pretend?) my dreams
    Where I will never find you

    But you’re the real thing baby

    And I’m really feelin’ this connection inside

    Love is real, this my confession
    Heaven sent, you’re such a blessin’
    I feel a love connection when I’m with you

    All them girls, they keep me guessin’
    Had my picks, but your my selection
    I feel a love connection when I’m with you

    When I see you, from day to day
    There’s so much I wanna say
    That I try not to come up, it’s wrong

    From now, I just say what I feel
    Cause this connection is real
    This just feels too right to be wrong

    I never thought it could be

    I feel, a love connection when I’m with you

    Okay! (I’m feelin’ a connection)
    Lady! (I’m feelin’ a connection)
    Baby! (I’m feelin’ a connection)
    You got me a feelin’ a connection…
    That’s right I’m feelin’ a connection…

    1. i think most of it is right, just there’s some spots that i caught. the parenthesis is what i think it is

      I know you feel the **(same), cause it shows
      Trust me girl, I see them glow
      Every time I look in your eyes

      When I see you, from day to day
      There’s so much I wanna say
      That I try not to come up, **it’s wrong (too strong)

      You got me a feelin’ a connection…
      That’s right I’m feelin’ a connection…
      All this time, that I’m **your destined (investing)
      All you gotta do is say yes and…

      1. I agree with everything you changed. A little change that I heard was that “That I try not to come up, it’s wrong” should have been ‘that I try not to come on too strong.” If it was up, that wouldn’t make as much sense.

        Connection is soooo goooooood! I’ve been listening to it nonstop since I found the full track this morning!

      2. oh, and this part:

        I never thought it could be
        Cause truthfully you showed me
        **Live everyday (pretend?) my dreams (Livin’ deep within my dreams)
        Where I will never find you

    2. yep I here exactly that 🙂

      btw Kay you missed ‘same’ in “I know you feel the *, cause it shows”

      is it just me? coz this part of the rap made me LOL:
      “The way you lick your lips and just touch my spots
      I need you miss in my life, like hit me to hop” 😀 haha

    3. “I never thought it could be
      Cause truthfully you showed me
      Live everyday (pretend?) my dreams
      Where I will never find you”

      it should be:

      I never thought it could be
      cause truthfully you should be
      hidden deep within my dreams
      where i will never find you

      :]

  28. I really am loving Connection. I feel it has this 70’s Jackson 5 catchy-ness. Yet fresh like Ne-yo and smooth like pre-Rihanna Chris Brown (sorry… :-/) It has this Will Smith groove and the Usher soul. WOOT.

    I’m petitioning this for the radio stations! STAT!

  29. OT, but…
    Any thoughts on the Beautiful Hangover MV?

    Song’s okay, but YB’s vocals are LOVE as usual. (melts)
    LOL at Daesung whispering sweet nothings to YB. Everyone getting way too close to YB! And um, YB = peeping tom???

    1. It reminded me a lot of Haru Haru, with all the angst and the similar colors in the MV. I liked that YB had somewhat of a central roll as the other man (I think that’s the story right?) but other than that, not really into the song, sounds a lot like the other stuff they’ve done~~~~

      1. Have you heard someone to love?! It’s a lot of autotuning … However, I like it btter than beautiful hangover. The mv is exciting lol.

    2. the “love triangle” storyline is not very refreshing (given the past tragic MV concepts lol), and I found it quite hard to understand what on earth was going on, I know its about a hangover, but it kinda made me rofl when Daesung was shoving the bottle of pills at YB, the whole “pill” thing was weird and what exactly is his character doing? oh and he was singing “kiss my lips” almost in YB’s ear LOL

      Overall not the most exciting MV but its alright,I like the whole digital (or watever) they did with the walls, as for the song,its alright.

  30. i actually like the WD lyrics a lot. well, the parts i understood, that is. hehe. gosh, does it take him long to record it that’s why they didnt have him record it again? :/

    CONNECTION!
    first reaction: this is YB???????????? haha! it’s sooooooooooooo awesome! and he sounds so good!!!! no need straining my ears to grasp the words! and im glad it’s actually more upbeat than the teaser ^^ yey! totally got a winner here! im sure if it’s a hit theyre going to make an MV to it. so go go go to everyone in the US. too bad cant help in that field. ^^ but everyone, fighting!

  31. I couldn’t finish listening to WD in English. The pronounciation got to me. ): the Korean version was epic and I guess I’ll always love that one more.

    Connection, thou, is one of my favorite tracks YB has made. Seriously. Almost all his songs so far has met my expectation.

    The lyrics isn’t cheesy. The pronounciation was wayyyy better than WD an the beat is soo fun. He did an excellent job. I can picture him doing the usher ‘you remind me’ video type thing like someone menioned. It’s gonna be a cutesy mv, I bet. Cutesy and shirtless like what Kay said lol!

  32. It frustrates me that I can’t understand WD~ D: I think it’ll take a few more listens for me to like it.

    Ironic that I didn’t understand WD Korean at all and like it so much, lol.

    CONNECTION IS ABSOLUTE LOVE!!! MAH JAYUM BABEH!!

    His English is LUV~~~ The lyrics is cute and sweet, and just everything… I think xD

    CONNECTION NEEDS LIKE, AN MV LIKE, RIGHT NOW!!! LMAO~~~

  33. This is the kind of music style I wanted on his album, at least one song!(not that I was disappointed though, INAG was a breath of fresh air and Move satisfied my TaeKush fetish). And personally I like Connection more than I’ll be there. Its more R&B based than hip hop, its easy to listen to and the lyrics just flow. I feel like this song is more worthy of getting a music video and would be more memorable but I guess they figured IBT would be more ”popie” and sell more so they focused in on that.

  34. I stand by what I said before. Connection should be an mv over IBT because it is an incredible follow to WD HYPE 😉 only needed 30 sec to see it. It’s a hott song.

  35. wow…i usually just lurk here..but omygahh.. i can’t contain myself now..
    i.LOVE.CONNECTIONS!!!!
    and i agree with what a lot of u guys are saying, i can sooo see this playing on the radio here in the US..

  36. oh and P.S.
    MV for this is a MUST.
    ..and i think im a greedy fan cause i kinda want him to perform this live in change of i’ll be there..somehow i feel like this would catch more attention and get him more awards??..but then again that’s me..and i don’t live in korea..idk..
    bottom line i just want to see connection live. hahaha

  37. FYI, US iTunes has released the album. I’m DLing right now. ^^

    So that makes my purchases:
    Solar Deluxe
    Solar iTunes
    Solar Standard
    International (CD)
    International iTunes Audio

    Omg, YG… I’m such an easy sell. Am I gonna have to buy the iTunes Video next month, too? -.-;;

  38. Connection is really too nice. It makes you dance happily and clap along to the song.

    YB, you’ve outdone yourself this time. And yes, you are my blessing! ❤

    *goes to listen to Connection for the umpteenth time*

  39. Connection – lyrics by Walt Anderson and Big Tone. composed by DJ Murf, Peejay, and Walt Anderson. arranged by DJ Murf and Peejay. rap lyrics by Big Tone.

    just got my preorder from iTunes. 🙂
    all the lyrics are in the digital booklet

    1. I did some researching and Walt Anderson was the one who made the Lyrics for Se7en’s “Money can’t buy love” so I’m guessing Walt Anderson is one of the secret producers. I searched up Peejay I’m not 100% sure if this is him but he also does R&B http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diJ1vMo53vE&feature=channel . Some of these producers I’m not really aware of but it’s cool to see them working with TY.

  40. First of all, I don’t mean to sound mean or that I’m complaining because we’ve all been spoiled but if YG is reading this, it just because I care and want YB to suceed where ever he goes.

    I’m very dissapointed and dissatisfy with the English version of WD. If YG really wants to market YB internationally they need to work harder because the song was sloppy jaloppy. The English lyrics wasn’t well translated to fit with the original korean vocal arrangment. Which is sad because the Korean version draws the feelings of where the artist is coming from and gives it to its audience. With the English version not being well put together with proper translation and pronounciation, its hard to understand the concept, and the emotions of the artist.

    I have heard a couple of english covers on youtube and thoughts it was well put together (JD Relic). I believe a more well polished English version of WD is possible.

    Also, is there a speech coach or anything like that, that is helping YB with pronoucing his english for his english songs?

    I have been very unhappy how YG’s been promoting YB. I know YG is trying their best but if they really want YB to world dominate than they should do more homework because they didn’t before and lead to seven not suceeding in America. It would break my heart if YB did the same. Honestly, I’m not a happy consumer and would like YG to work harder in getting to know more of their international audience.

      1. *broke offf in the middle, like I was saying…

        -and I kind of wished he didn’t choose YB as his sounding board but whatever. I’m thankful for all the effort that YG has put into YB with SOLAR. You can tell that they did a lot for him and I’m thankful for that.

        Yes there were a lot of mistakes made and I do wish YG would just hire me already cause I think I would know what I’m doing since I’m so passionate about YB (understandably not the #1 propriety). However, it is what it is, I’ve already aired my grievances. Plus I’ll give YG props because YB is a hard sell.

        YB isn’t coming to the US any time soon if ever cause he’s busy with BB. He probably wont do another solo project till 2012. However, I’m happy with what we’ve been given.

        1. Even though YB isn’t coming to the US soon or going on a world tour, we should keep in mind that business is business whether it’s local, domestic or international. I’m expecting professionalism from a well know company because the truth is that in other countires, their music industry is different with a whole new set of culture and norm. If YG is thinking about expanding the they should think and plan well because Kpop is expanding worldwide.

        2. ^
          I agree, that’s why they are using YB as an experiment. YG’s money makers are BB and 2NE1. With YB being busy with BB in Japan (YG’s #1 propriety) there isn’t any fear of using him as an experiment to test out how to reach international fans since his solo career is a side project. YB arguably has the most international (or western) fans of any YG artist and has the most appeal outside of normal kpop listeners in the west.

          YG already has plans to debut 2NE1 in the US and Se7en is going to continue trying. YG can use YB to see what appeals to a Western audience and how to lay ground work for future projects. Plus YB will be coming out with another album eventually, YG will make plans to see what exactly fans love about him.

          Remember this is YGE’s very first time doing something like this, in fact I wasn’t sure how much they planned this. I will say that so far I think their efforts overall (with both SOLAR and SOLAR 2.0) was fair, I’ll grade them a 70%, or a C-. There was a lot they could have done but it is what it is and they didn’t exactly do poorly.

  41. i love youngbae and all but
    it’s so painful listening to WD in english.
    why,he just slurs the words like he was drunk or something.i’m sorry.i have to get that out of my chest.:(

    connection on the other is such a feel good song.
    like,walking down the park with your dog and you have your ipod on.you’ll be like bobbing your head listening to it.and you can sing along too!:D

    what i don’t understand is why there’s this huge difference in YB’s english in both songs.
    i can’t understand him in WD but his pronounciation in connection was just fine.

    1. I agree.

      I was looking forward to singing along to Wedding Dress in English,since me trying to sing in Korean is like murdering the Korean language,but unfortunately the singing is very indistinct,but having said that it could have been a lot worse. Although I do question why they didn’t go over it to make sure everything’s spot on.

      On the other hand connection is awesome,it almost makes up for it! 😀

  42. prefer the WD in korean though..
    like the Connection.. the beat is awesome.. I;m feeling it. lol..
    but i think YB only sang a few there.. or is it me.. that i didn’t recognize his voice?????

  43. hmmnn,i think i’m getting use to listening to YB singing WD in english ver.:)
    gah,his voice no matter what language is pure love.

  44. everyone thinks that his pronunciation in WD not so good, but you should also look at the other side. He speaks very good English for someone that English isnt his first language or the official language in which country he lives. So his pronunciation will still be pretty good.

    1. yes we know that lol, that’s exactly why I was surprised because I was expecting good pronunciation (not the best because he’s still improving),and connection was sung with pretty good pronunciation, it was just WD.

      I think it was just a one off, they should have gone over it and made sure everything was good to go. >.<

      1. Ja, me too, but act. I like it, maybe the pronun. not so good, the song is still good, it sounds good.. 🙂
        Anyway, everyone like it;) ithink,

  45. anyone feeling that connection could be a song suited on justified by justin timberlake its got that timberlake/pharrell williams feel

    and the problem with english releases of korean songs is that its hard to fit words to a strict melody…whereas songs like connection were made for english…i still really like the english version of wedding dress its good except i agree why change “oh no” to “oh yes” lol

  46. Some say it’s not over ‘till it’s over
    Guess this is really over now
    There’s something I gotta say before I let you go
    Listen

    Can’t believe what’s going’ on
    Gotta keep my cool, be calm
    When I heard you and he was screamin’ out of control
    All I can think about is “No, no, no… he won’t
    hurt the one I’ve cared for so long, long… Hell, no.”
    I know we’re done, and now it’s none of my concern but how
    can two be windin’ out from only weeks in goin’ out
    Just makes me feel that what we had was real
    Could it be or is it too late? (Oh, oh baby)

    Refrain:
    Baby! Listen to your heart, I won’t let you down
    Cause you should be my Lady!
    Now that we’re upon love, we’ll show how Life carries on…
    I’ve never felt so strong Life can lead us
    to a happiness never ending
    If we just know that we belong to each other
    Never worry, grow old as we go See you in your wedding dress
    I can see you in your wedding dress
    I see you walking down in your … (wedding dress)
    I can see you in your wedding dress (Oh, yea~)

    I was never perfect no
    But I’d never let it go
    to a point where I’m ragin’, throwin’ making you uncomfortable
    What he undid to you was unacceptable
    You claimed everything was okay. That’s impossible
    Just know I’m here for you All clear for you from night to sun
    God, I’ve been near to you, the feel of you gives me a rush
    It makes me feel that what we have is real
    It could never be too late

    Refrain:
    Baby! Listen to your heart, I won’t let you down
    Cause you should be my Lady!
    Now that we’re upon love, we’ll show how Life carries on…
    I’ve never felt so strong Life can lead us
    to a happiness never ending
    If we just know that we belong to each other
    Never worry, grow old as we go See you in your wedding dress
    I can see you in your wedding dress
    I see you walking down in your … (wedding dress)
    I can see you in your wedding dress (Oh, yea~)

    Baby girl you won’t regret
    Come along just take my hand
    Let’s start this journey livin’ life so beautiful
    This happy hope that we spread love, and see it goes deeper so deep from my heart (Whoa oh)

    I’ve never felt so strong
    Life can lead us to a happiness never ending
    If we just know that we belong to each other
    Never worry, grow old as we go
    See you in your wedding dress I could see you in your wedding dress
    I’m never let go… never let go

    your welcome 😀
