Song Review: MCND – nanana

I’ve got a potentially controversial opinion: it’s time to reduce the amount of rap in idol songs.

It’s become such a staple that K-pop’s melodies are beginning to follow suit, losing their robust, artfully-constructed refrains in favor of throwaway sing-talk. I suspect much of this is due to the logistics of idoldom in a rapidly-expanding market. After all, it’s much easier to find a dozen pretty, charismatic people who can sing-talk than find the same number of pretty, charismatic people who also happen to be excellent vocalists.

I mention this because MCND’s nanana is the latest K-pop comeback to be short on melody. It’s a noisy, lumbering beast, underpinned by those aggressive, Monsta X-esque synths we’ve all become so familiar with over the past few years. Unlike SuperM’s 100, which went for a similarly unrelenting energy, nanana’s instrumental is not particularly pleasant. It lacks warmth and depth, preferring a more frenzied, chaotic sound. I appreciate how the tempo doesn’t twist itself in unnecessary directions. In fact, it actually speeds up for the chorus – a rarity in today’s K-pop. I just wish that every moment of it didn’t give me a headache.

What little melody nanana delivers is very much within the sing-talk realm. Its chorus has that juvenile, taunting sound that I’ve come to expect from songs with wordless titles like this. There’s way too much going on, and very little is pleasant to the ear. The track’s pre-chorus is our only oasis, though the melody here is rather forgettable. In between, we have the core of any MCND song: the rap. This time around, their preferred style is not subtle, and leaves little room for dynamics. Instead, the guys SHOUT EVERYTHING. Yep, this is a song in all caps. And, it’s absolutely exhausting.

  1. I was also reminded of Monsta X (although this seems more like a dollar store version, sorry MCND). I wonder if your opinion about rap in idol songs is really controversial; I’ve heard it before from friends. Usually it ends up being more sing-talk than actual rap and that can range from just unnecessary to very annoying. It does work sometimes though (see Itzy).

    • I think what I did is make a sweeping, un-nuanced statement that elicited controversy when it didn’t need to.

      Rap has become a bigger part of idol music over the past decade, just as it’s become a bigger part of pop music everywhere. And, a well-placed, well-delivered rap verse has been the highlight of many songs. Hip-hop in general has been the driver of tons of great K-pop, from Epik High to G-Dragon to BTS to BLACKPINK and so on.

      My issue (which I didn’t state well at all) is that too often it feels like K-pop is using rap (or more commonly, sing-talk) as a gimmick — shoehorning it into songs that aren’t designed to support it.

      I would never want rap to disappear from K-pop altogether. It’s been a vital part of its framework since the early-90’s, informing so much of its strengths and appeal.

  2. It’s a rough day in the neighborhood when a song makes me miss “Ice Age”. I know plenty here loved that song, and I didn’t except for its bombast. It is perhaps a reverse example of the Rocket Punch “Juicy” divide, which I love and most of you hate. But some nine months and a geologic age on from last listen, I still know the song quite well. That, dear children, is because “Ice Age” has an Actual Hook.

    Back to this song. Oh my word. Oof, doof. Who at the agency thought this would be good? Who in that agency starts with picking a song like “Ice Age” and then socks these boys with this trap crap, when they can sell the shit out of a song like “Ice Age”. No group active today can sell the shit out of this song; it is the actual shits.

    Boys, I feel for you. You deserve better.

    Nick, you amaze me, how pleasantly you can describe your disappointment. My initial reaction was all emojis.

  3. Wow, try to hide your judgement at least a bit? Before what little foot traffic you have comes in here with their equally bitter judgement. There’ve been songs put out like this for YEARS — HotShot, MadTown, etc. Why are you acting like it’s some sort of spectacle? I think it’s time to take off the earbuds and break from tedious, gritting essays on the musical malpractice of random Teens-With-Dreams before a tirade of black folk infiltrate your comments on how your antiblack sentiment is showing more and more with every glimmer of a trap break (they wouldn’t be wrong). Twitter adolescence with the range of 3 insults have given less lackluster reviews to today’s releases. Maybe 2021 will be the year of retro, although in your own conniving words — “temper your expectations,” as if you were speaking about the release of this winter’s coronavirus vaccine and not the genre of Korean pop.

    For quick promotions — JO1’s new album in stores 8/26, people. Maybe it’ll finally live up to some expectations around here, although I doubt that much.

    • Why would he hide his judgement? It’s his review site. Just leave if it upsets you so much. I don’t think he’s going to stop just because of a rando on the internet. Also, it’s not “antiblack sentiment” to dislike a trap break??? What???? A musical preference is not racist. There’s good trap out there but this is not it. Either way, you should probably stop reading this site since his opinions offend you so much.

      Where was I acting like that? I acknowledged that this is a well-worn trope in the review. And for the record, I actually liked a lot of songs by HotShot and Madtown.

      I can’t even with this. For one, reducing black people to “trap music” seems a bit offensive and demeaning to me. I don’t know what kind of “sentiment” you’re pushing on me, but let’s not throw out unfounded insults when you don’t even know me or my life.

      • Sorry to sorta go off topic but I thought OPs comment was kinda interesting, if rudely worded and having petty shots:

        I’m a regular reader, I like that this site brings the songs released each day to me. I’ve followed your Twitter, and there’s kinda an issue I’ve had lately that’s touched on in Bo’s comment, and then the tweet about WAP and then the “Trap Sucks” article really brought it to the forefront. Both were shared onto my TL/GCs and started discussions on music criticism and whether there’s implicit racial bias when a reviewer from outside the culture begins engaging with music from it. You might’ve seen a very similar discussion on twitter/in the pop reddits about the phrase/sentiment “____ saved pop music/defeated trap”. (There’s a very popular tweet discussing how pop stans praising Dua Lipa’s songs elevate it on its perceived dissimilarity from currently popular hip hop music rather than elevating it on the qualities of the song they’re actually discussing.)

        Myself and every black follower who read your WAP tweet and article took issue with them, and we all drew connections to earlier discussions this year about how only certain types of popular music (music that is on the opposite end of the spectrum from hip hop) will be praised by white reviewers, and perhaps disproportionately so.

        I’m not saying you’re racist for not liking trap music or that you’re wrong in holding that belief! I can agree that a halftime break with 808 backing isn’t necessary in the 2nd verse of every Kpop song. But as a reviewer, maybe it’s time for a reset of your viewpoint?

        I’m not going to lie, when I saw the “Enough of the Trap Music” article, I did think it was a bit silly, and kind of culturally blind, to write as a music critic: Trap music is more popular than ever, so of course it’s more prevalent in Kpop which draws from Western trends. The list of genres which aren’t relevant at all to the popular musical landscape at the moment, even as a wishlist, also came off as very out of touch in the context of the article. Excuse me if I’m wrong, but you and the general readership of this site seems to skew older, right? Maybe it’s time to do a soft reset of your musical palate, to explore current music that isn’t Kpop and Jpop. A pretty prominent online pop music reviewer Toddintheshadows was also in the same kind of boat as you until he started listening to popular music regardless of if he wanted to review it (ie “”pure”” pop music), and he gained a better appreciation for trap music AND pop music. He was better equipped to tastefully interact with both, and even began identifying qualities of trap he liked. As is, the site does sorta give me “classic rock music was REAL music” vibes that older folks do, maybe making some time each week to pull up a “Today’s Hip Hop Hits” playlist or slotting DaBaby and Megan Thee Stallion between SHINee and Sexyzone on your own playlists will result in some more nuance than “a song’s proximity/distance to/from trap is a strong measure of its quality”.

        “For one, reducing black people to “trap music” seems a bit offensive and demeaning to me.”

        This isn’t offensive lol. Trap music is a part of our music and social culture! I get the desire to not step on any toes, but trying to divorce trap music from its black roots is a disservice.

        I guess I can wrap up my huge comment with this thought: we can’t force critics to think anything, and don’t ask you to, but we can question their motivations: “are we reviewing the song that’s in front of us or the song we WISH was in front of us?” I do question “Is Nick evaluating the song this artist put out or ranking them on how similar they sound to The Chaser/Sherlock, etc.?” more often now, and the “enough trap” article followed by “enough rap” starting off this article made me sort of partial with Bo. Again, maybe consuming music that’s popular elsewhere and is now influencing Kpop rather than passively reacting to Kpop releases might increase the depth you’re reviewing at?

        • Agree or disagree is another thing… But I really respect your way of keeping your opinion. It’s very interesting, respectful and thought inducing.

          Personally I really don’t know anything about genres so I can’t speak much on it…for me the only thing that matters is whether I like the song or not.

          To the original comment I would like to say that at the end of the day the only songs that are going to be added to our playlist will depend solely on how we feel about that song. It’s not like we are influenced by the reviews or can lie to ourselves about how we feel about it(even if it’s your bias gp)

          The only difference is that we don’t write reviews so nobody sees how we’re judging the song.
          We all have our own criterias so sometimes its difficult to understand other’s point of view about a certain thing.

          And there’s no problem if you don’t like a person’s point of view regarding a certain topic.

          SO WHAT’S THE THING THAT MATTERS?

          Being respectful.

          Share your opinion about the song. No need to be shy or overthinking how can I say I love it when others are not.
          That’s what the comment section is for, to keep your opinion.
          If you like the song despite Nick giving it a low rating ..do that. Praise the song as much as you want.

          I mean once I said that I love the song and it made me realize why I love K-pop so much and Nick had given it a 7 rating (or something). And he just said he was glad that it connected with me.
          Now imagine him saying how can you, no taste, no class etc. That would be wrong and insulting and that’s exactly what you are doing.

          Just say you love/hate or agree/disagree with the opinion while being tactful.

          It isn’t that hard. Try it.

        • I appreciate this feedback so, so much — both its content and your approach. And, I wish there was a better venue for this than my crappily-organized comments section, because it’s a big discussion and the formatting of these threads tends to get a little convoluted.

          First of all, it breaks my heart that any content on this blog would cause others to feel diminished in any way. Implicit racial bias is a problem. The first step to breaking it down is to acknowledge it, and I am certainly not immune. I’ll do better, and I hope that readers like you will continue to challenge me when I don’t.

          You bring up so many interesting points about music criticism in general. To be honest, when I first launched this site it was simply going to be a K-pop-oriented extension of my previous blog, which was basically just me sharing and writing about music that I liked. I never intended or expected The Bias List to grow so much, and for me to have any sort of platform beyond those who connected with the music I shared. The very nature of reviewing every new release means I’m writing about a lot of genres and styles that may not be ingrained in my personal music history, and that’s bound to cause some level of discomfort. I’ve always tried to be respectful and thoughtful whenever possible, and to educate myself on the history of the Korean music industry.

          With that said, there are certain styles and sounds that I gravitate toward, and much of that has to do with my own life experience and exposure. Many current musical trends are really challenging that, which results in the frustration (and against my better instincts, dismissiveness) that you’re picking up on. When this becomes a dismissiveness of culture in general, that’s a big problem. I hope that I don’t come across like that often. I’ll be more aware of it. There’s no malice intended. Just — as you said – bias.

          About trap music: I am struggling with it. It’s such an omnipresent sound in music right now, and has been for the past few years. Though I don’t listen to much western music anymore, I do constantly peruse the charts out of curiosity and I really have a hard time hearing the appeal of this particular genre. To me, black music has such a rich and diverse history, and it feels like trap has just kind of taken over, while leaving so much of that diversity by the wayside. This could just be my ignorance talking, and I’d welcome any suggestions that might help me begin to appreciate the genre more.

          And yeah, that WAP tweet was stupid. It was just some knee-jerk reaction to what was billed as one of the most anticipated tracks of the year, coming from someone who wasn’t well-informed on the topic in the first place. I think I was just expecting some fun Lil’ Kim/Khia/Trina hookiness only to get… more trap beats.

          Finally, your “classic rock music was REAL music” comment made me chuckle. Like any young person (I’m still relatively young, though!! lol), I SWORE I would never become one of those “back in my day!” music curmudgeons. I hope I’m not there yet, but I feel that grumpiness encroaching and I’m not happy about it. At least in the context of this blog, “back in my day” usually only refers to seven or eight years ago. But… still. I do have the habit of comparing every new song to my absolute favorite ones, which is really only a recipe for disappointment. The monotony of writing about songs that all borrow from the same (or similar) tropes, day after day, has caused this tendency to flourish over the past couple of years. It’s something I need to be aware of.

          Thank you again for your thoughtful feedback, and for sticking with me despite your concerns. I hope you’ll continue to post your thoughts and reactions.

          I’ve had similar thoughts (although I’m not black) but hadn’t quite put them into words. And didn’t see the WAP tweet until you mentioned it and I went looking, actually… but yeah. The call for an end to trap shortly followed by a call for an end to rap in general was not a good look. I think things were just going to continue to go in this direction until someone brought this up, and I’m glad Nick has seen and responded to your comment in particular. I also understand where Bo was coming from, but if we want to see real change happen, it is best to explain where we’re coming from (as you’ve done so thoughtfully here) rather than come swinging right out the gate.

          You also bring up an interesting question about implicit bias in music reviews, as an “outsider” reviewer. The word “bias” is ubiquitous enough in kpop to be included in this site’s title, but maybe we don’t do enough thinking about racial bias in music criticism. Obviously we agree that disliking trap doesn’t mean you’re a racist, but Nick has already made it more than clear that trap is not his cup of tea, so the question is where do we go from here? I like your suggestion about taking a step back and resetting his viewpoint. If someone is a professional critic, generally they’re expected to try to assess music as objectively as possible. I don’t know if Nick makes any money from this at all (I assume it’s more of a passion project) but I would think that doing this sort of “reset” would ultimately be more fulfilling and make things more interesting for him, anyway.

          As a side note, I would be interested in discussing this with regard to gender as well sometime, but that might be a conversation for another day. (It’s just kinda hard for me to read reviews of girl groups that describe the sound as “bratty” and it feels super gendered, but I dunno if that’s just me.)

          • Yes! I’m very happy to have these conversations, and particularly interesting in your “where do we go from here?” comment regarding trap. It’s difficult when you don’t enjoy the sound of something, yet that sound is suddenly present in the vast majority of songs that you write about and otherwise enjoy.

            What do you do? Ignore it? Write the same thing over and over again until it grates on every reader (which is what’s happened), or simply embrace it? I’d like to be able to take that last approach, but I don’t feel like I’ve found an entry point that makes that embrace genuine.

            Feel free to send me a message via the contact button on this blog or dm me on twitter. Or, if you’d rather the conversation be public, perhaps the “about” page is a more suitable place for this discussion?

            I will say, though… I am not a professional music critic, nor have I ever claimed to be. By its nature, this site was never built to be objective, and I don’t have any illusions that my opinions are the right ones, or that everyone (or even anyone!) should agree. I am one of many diverse viewpoints in K-pop fandom. I certainly don’t want to do harm with that viewpoint, but I also know there are plenty of other places where songs I dislike will be celebrated, and vice versa.

            When it comes down to it, The Bias List is a place for me to vent my feelings about songs, and a nice personal record of what I’ve enjoyed or not enjoyed over the years. This blog is a hobby, not a business.

              I’m also not a professional by any means and I know precious little about music theory. But I’m very interested in hearing song analysis. This might be beside the point, but I listen to a podcast called Punch Up The Jam where the goal is to remake ubiquitous huge hit songs that are either very good or very bad. They have a weekly segment where Rob Moose (an amazing musician who has played for Bon Iver, Alabama Shakes, Taylor Swift etc) gives a very brief little “music criticism” section. He is often speaking about music we can assume he REALLY DISLIKES in this section, but rather than just tearing it to shreds, he just makes it about something he’d prefer to talk about instead– like, “this section has a chord progression that you can hear in a lot of other pop songs isn’t that interesting? Absolutely hate this song but I just thought that was interesting.”

              Ultimately I feel as though it would be probably more personally fulfilling and interesting for you (as well as your readership!) to try to find something that tickles you in each song and talk about that and then just give whatever rating and let that speak for itself lol. I mean that’s probably what I’d do in your shoes, anyway. Maybe if I really hated something I’d just write several paragraphs about what I did that day and then say 2/10. lol

              Maybe I’ll shoot you a DM sometime re: the gender stuff, I don’t wanna detract from the other important points made here, and I also don’t have a particular attachment to hashing things out in public. Thanks for being open to it!

    • About every 20th review or so, we get someone who wanders in here, goes on and off about the review and Nick and life and the state of things and the world. Mostly off about things. And then leaves.

      And the rest of us scratch our heads, and think lots of things, and one of we regulars eventually post something in response. I usually keep mine short, others go long form. About every 50th or 100th review, Nick himself responds long form because he spends several hours a day writing kpop reviews using full sentences and full paragraphs for just about every song that is released that day and then someone wanders in here and just shits all over his work. Accuses him of being this that and the other thing. And then leaves.

    The mv looked awesome and clearly wasn’t a waste of time and I think it had a decent budget.

    The Monsta X references are a bit too much though. It sounds like a MX B-side, I can hear even the parts they would sing. But I love me some MX and didn’t like Fantasia so maaaaybe I’ll let it slide.

  9. Coming to the song review. I like it ..not something I would especially come to but it’s okay and right there with many average releases this year. I don’t mind the rap if its done well and enhances the song, but that’s not the case here.
    I don’t think there is a need to reduce the amount of rap but I do agree that sometimes there’s rap part in the song that comes out of nowhere when the song was doing perfectly well without it. Or sometimes the rap part feels additional,like it was just inserted there after the recording. So a big no to that too.

        Even when I really dislike a piece of music or the approach to a song, I try really hard never to make it personal to the performers. I’m not always 100% successful in that regard, but I try. My hope is that any comments would also strive toward the same goal.

        Now, your response was more tongue-in-cheek than anything, but it’s just so easy to say “you don’t have taste” and walk away. It’s not productive. It only gets people riled up. I’m genuinely interested to hear what others think about songs I review, whether they agree or disagree. I’d hope that in the future you’d share your thoughts in more detail.

  11. Hi Nick. I’ve been reading all the comments under this review and I have to say, a lot of interesting points were made and I am full of thoughts right now.

    I want to say a couple of things though.

    First of all, I really REALLY appreciate you and this blog. For who you are, and for what you strive this blog to be. This is the only place I go to check on new Kpop releases. I don’t know how you keep up with everything, but your dedication to not letting even a small idol group from a small company from outback yonder go unnoticed truly impresses me.

    Dare I say that this blog is the only place where I can freely communicate and exchange in a manner of respect and civility in regards to Kpop? If there is any other place like this somebody let me know! All the hype energy, fanning and overreactions that have taken the majority of the community doesn’t really connect with me. I feel truly at home here, I really do.

    Personally, I am grateful to you. I can definitely see your efforts to be respectful and knowledgable about the Korean culture. As a Korean, you have no idea how much it means to me when someone tries their best to understand and appreciate the Korean culture. It’s the little things that show in between the lines of your reviews, your tweets, your comments that have got my attention and made me realize what an amazing person you are.

    I think the only thing we have in common is our love for SWEETUNE and INFINITE and a few tidbits here and there about second verse breakdowns and lack of melodies. Other than that, there are times where I disagree but that’s fine cos it’s how it is you know? Everyone’s different. I always enjoy your rants and praises.

    My gateway to discovering your blog was when I saw your A to Z INFINITE reviews and I was like “WOW! This is cool! I’ve never seen someone do this before!”. Then I read everything else and I was like “WOW! Such eloquent and articulate writing!”. Anyways, what I want to say is keep doing you Nick! I can’t really talk about what’s been discussed in the above comments cos I feel like I’m just not knowledgeable enough about it and might across as ignorant, but I hope you keep the core purpose of your blog the same. I hope that this blog stays the same where it’s still a place for people to come together and discuss about music without feeling unsafe or uncomfortable.

    I know I don’t comment much, but rest assured I’m always reading your reviews and the comments. I’m always supporting you and what you do.

    • Of course! The guys have a ton of potential. I’ve actually followed a few of them since pre-debut, so I feel a bit invested. I ended up liking Ice Age a lot and love their new b-side Bumpin’. So, despite not enjoying nanana, I’ve still got a lot of appreciation for the group.
