Some of our favorite K-pop girl groups like Wonder Girls, Girls' Generation and 2NE1 have dabbled in the American market with English releases, and today a new act joins them. SPICA made their U.S. debut (via Billboard) with the funky, summery "I Did It."
The bumpin', brassy production has a sound similar to recent hits like Ariana Grande's "Problem" and Jessie J's "Bang Bang," featuring the girls singing and rapping empowering, girl-power lyrics. Our favorite moment comes when Juhyun raps, "SPICA SPICA, we blowin' up ya speaker / We run the town like the boys need to wake up / You watch my legs, you watch my rear / Whatcha lookin' at? My eyes are up here!" You tell 'em, girl.
From their 2012 debut, SPICA has stood out in K-pop for their powerful, Christina Aguilera-esque vocals and the girls sound right at home harmonizing through this modern-day, throwback track.
The accompanying video stays with the old-school-yet-modern theme as the gals rock fashionable, sexy looks while strutting and shimmying in a slew of '60s-inspired sets.
"I Did It" is the first offering from SPICA's upcoming English album. While we love the new track, we're also keeping our fingers crossed for an English version of "Tonight" (below). Or maybe "Painkiller" or "You Don't Love Me"? Oh just translate them all, SPICA. We can't decide!!!
