[REVIEW] 160205 DREAM - Baekhyun & Suzy: Hold up, Brush up, and Wrap up!



Hold up, hold up!
I know it’s been a long time since it was released, but let’s do a quick brush up on Baekhyun’s newest collaborative single with Miss A’s Suzy, entitled Dream.

A jazz inspired track blended with vibrant pop R&B soul beats with neo-soul sounds, this song definitely gives off a laid back feel to the listener, a good change of pace once in a while from the fast, electrifying beats that the K-pop genre is distinctively known for. The single was written by Park Geun Tae, Choi Jin Seok, and Kim Eana, who has previously worked with EXO, as the lyricist for the Korean version of the song Lucky, from EXO’s 1st full repackaged album, Growl. The lyrics, rich of sweet words spoken by a love struck couple who feels that their love is like a dream, that’s too good to be true. 


Here’s a few opening lines that no doubt, make a woman’s heart flutter:

You are beautiful just as you were yesterday

No, you’re more beautiful than you were yesterday


Thanks to the voices of Baekhyun and Suzy, the song creates a mellow yet classy feel, attributing to the MV as well; where the video is set in vintage styled room, with the vocalists sitting at the middle, surrounded by a jazz band accompaniment which gives off a heartwarming feeling as the chemistry of the voices sound so beautifully harmonious.


As good as the song is, the single debuted at number one on South Korea's Gaon weekly digital chart and remained at this position for three consecutive weeks. The physical version also debuted at the same position on the Gaon weekly album chart. Recently, it has won the first Triple Crown of the year on SBS’s Inkigayo, and it also has a total of 5 music show wins in three weeks without any promotion or live performances from the duet.


To wrap this up, Dream is a refreshing song to one’s ear, a replay button killer and a must listen for everyone out there.

Probably you could say that this is a coffee-shop-type-of-song, but as for me, if this song was likened to coffee, then the taste of caffeine has never been this sweet.
