On October 30th, Korea’s monster girl group Twice, released their comeback single, “Likey” from their first full album titled, Twicetagram, which contains 13 tracks. This is the third comeback for the girl group this year, and they’re back with a fun and fresh concept.
“Likey” is a fun synth-pop track produced by Black Eyed Pilseung, who has produced several of Twice’s title tracks, including “TT” and “Cheer Up.” The group is known for its catchy hooks, and “Likey” is a best example. It starts off with Sana singing, “Me likey likey likey” which becomes the main highlight of the song. The members sing about getting that special attention from that special someone.
Unlike their last title track “Signal,” I fell in love with this track at first listen. It’s a very vibrant track that makes me feel happy. There is one part of the song that caught my attention was the rap section by members Dahyun and Chaeyoung. I enjoyed the rap section, especially Dahyun’s line where she says, “Oh wait wait, I finally got an answer, woo!” It was a little sassy, but cute at the same time.
The music video was filmed in Vancouver, and it gives a little nod to the 90s, with the clothing and most of the filters being used in most scenes, where Jihyo was holding a handheld camera. There are also little references to social media, especially in the choreography where they point to the left side, where a heart would be on Instagram.
On Twicetagram, members Dahyun, Chaeyoung, Nayeon, Jihyo and Jeongyeon were able to contribute their writing skills onto the album. Along with the title track, there are standout tracks on this album like the dance track “24/7” written by Nayeon and Jihyo, and “Look at Me,” a sweet, light synth-pop track with another catchy chorus.
This is a really nice comeback for Twice. I appreciate that most of the members are starting to write and contribute something extra to the album. It’s definitely an improvement from their last comeback track.
