omg – omg – omg
What a fresh interpretation of the song! From the first listen, it felt like a different story altogether though keeping the sadness of the original. I love how they changed up the lyrics – and English – woohoo! Tablo-Tukutz-Taeyang ftw!
Tablo said “I worked as though I was writing an original song. I wrote new lyrics and made a new hook, DJ Tukutz created a track that was darker and different from the original, and Taeyang sang the original bridge and climax, but with a new feel. I wanted to give the fans a gift that would feel like a welcoming surprise. Plus, it’s not like we’re the type of people to do a typical cover song anyway.” Read about what else he had to say on the remix on icaruswalks.
YG is also launching another cover contest for Eyes Nose and Lips beginning June 27 and I’d really love to see how people reinterpret the song in their own way. This cover is a great example of how it can be done – looking forward to the fans’ take on it.
