1. Leave A Message
Wow, what a shift of style when it comes to their 3rd song, Leave a Message. It’s definitely taking a different ride by having a mix of this funky 80’s vibe with its bass and the flow has a certain K-pop meets J-pop meets club banger! I think the mix is pretty damn classy and just shines a new light to the group. I have to say though Jenny’s rap is just bangin’ and is a VERY edgy and sassy rap at that (which is not something that’s done as well as this in other J-pop groups). I also liked Chii’s addition too (she’s kind of reminding me of Rika Ishikawa of former Morning Musume fame, from the cute, innocent, but sharp attitude, though she has a much better tone overall). I did notice Mei in the bridge and Micchi towards the end which is great as they show some nice line distribution as well! Great song and a nice departure from the last single.
As the groups 2nd single, Leave A Message like I said is a total departure from their debut, by being edgier, sassier, and just taking names! I was surprised of the switch of sound, but I think it shows variety in a group and this means 4TE can really handle a good portion of styles. The tune is just a true club-banger and their producer, PromWolf is probably someone I should follow as this song is just really good musically!
