Seventeen – Q&A (ft. Ailee)

 

Seventeen-Ailee-QASeventeen (my favorite debut group of the year), have gifted us a surprise collaboration single with popular solo artist Ailee. Better yet, the song features a unit group of my three favorite members (S.Coups, Vernon & Woozi). Essentially, it’s a light hip-hop track that’s a lot less in your face than their full-group singles. It’s also a total grower. That breezy hook is indelible, and works its way inside your head without you even noticing it. While Ailee’s vocals can sometimes be overpowering in her own material, they work well here to accentuate the smooth verses. Better yet, the hip-hop portions of the track, which can sometimes simply float by without any fanfare, are full with character and catchy flow. Much of this is due to Vernon’s characteristic voice. Seriously, he has the absolute best tone for an idol rapper — charismatic and playful and sometimes a little all over the place. It helps that the video is also adorable and requires very little translation to get its point across.
