I don’t always cover new Jay Park music on the blog, but Candy offers the kind of funk-pop sound I tend to be interested in. It also pairs him with vocalist Zion.T — a name we don’t hear all that often anymore. They make a powerful duo, even if Candy sets its ambitions relatively low.
The song’s breezy groove is well-suited to summer, with a catchy chorus repeated often. It meets expectations, but never goes beyond them. I wish the beat went harder. It feels washed out and muted when it could have attacked with the force of a So Good. Luckily, Jay Park and Zion.T’s smooth, confident vocals give Candy flavor of its own.
I’ve missed zion.t and this is catchy for sure. Not a lot to it but it goes down well
Way too much autotune, and kinda lazy performance, there’s no soul in his voice for me to emotionally resonate with.
Zion.T killed his verse tho.
i counted the amount of 7’s and below you gave the songs you reviewed this year, and i got 54 7’s, 8 6’s, and 1 5 😬😬
and this month we got 17 7’s 😬😬😬
Sounds about right! K-pop’s been giving strong “7” energy this year… 😐
and only 4 kpop songs (not counting buried treasures) got above just an 8 this month!
