I was surprised that BoA had announced this single even before “WHO’S BACK” was released and was wondering why she just didn’t stick this and its B-side on the album (because it really needed new songs). That said, listening to the leading track, FLY is actually a ballad from her and might not have fully fit with that album. BoA sounds great in her ballads of recent and this is no exception! Not bad overall and brings her back down after all those dance songs lol.

The B-side though has more of a funky vibe that kind of reminds me of stuff in the middle of her career like “MADE IN GALAXY (20)” and “THE FACE”. Though at the same time is it weird I could hear Hikki perform this song for some reason? Either way, I love the flow of this one as well and BoA sounds sweet and cutesy here and it’s a neat track for sure.
BoA for some reason quickly released FLY after her album and for the most part it’s OK, nothing poor, but nothing that really echoes how good a lot of those songs from “WHO’S BACK” were. FLY is a nice ballad and Airport de Machiawase is a nice funky song, but it is what it is….nice. I can only hope her next release will be awesome!
