1. BAAM -Japanese ver.-
Not even a couple seconds in and I already knew the group was going to cash in on the explosive popularity that “BBoom BBoom” had for them earlier in 2018. The song is VERY VERY similar to previously mentioned track from the beats to the prechorus from Yeonwoo to the rap verse from JooE & Daisy. It’s just scary that it’s essentially a retread of their big hit. That said, the song is still pretty damn good and is just as much an earworm! So I suppose the idea was that if it’s not broken don’t fix for this A-side. I will say also that I think I prefer the Japanese cut of the Korean original, must be taste I guess.
2. Only one you -Japanese ver.-
So the B-side actually comes from the same mini-album that “BAAM” did in Korea so I suppose it was another track that stood out from it perhaps? Though this one chills things out after the party banger, “BAAM” for this rather cute pop track. Like the B-side from their last single, this is kind of the song I would’ve expected MOMOLAND to release over and over. I do enjoy the vocals here and everyone sounds airy and pretty. Just gives me a 90’s pop love song so that’s quite nice.
I knew I was right when “BAAM” was chosen as their second single in Japan and just as much I feel exactly the same with this single as I did with “BBoom BBoom”. The main track is pretty good even if its by the books a clone of the aforementioned track while Only one you was a cute pop song. I hope MOMOLAND for their 3rd single changes the game up because having both A-side side-by-side is really make them feel like a one trick pony when I know there’s so much more to them!
