Girls’ Generation’s “I Got A Boy” Video: Good Luck Topping This in 2013, Everyone Else

All Other Music Videos, You're On Notice
K-pop sensation Girls’ Generation released their fourth album I Got A Boy on New Year’s Day, and on New Year’s Eve they premiered the video for the title track. In just three days, that clip has already amassed over six million views on Youtube. And for good reason: for starters, “I Got A Boy” is essentially six songs in one. It begins as some undulating future-R&B that transforms into a fist-in-the-air, “ooh-ooh-ooh” singalong, before taking a sharp left turn into what sounds like Major Lazer‘s “Hold The Line” on steroids. Oh, and there’s an absolutely ferocious breakdown at 3:36.

The bombastic track gets equally over-the-top visuals, with a color palette that would make Nicki Minaj yelp with excitement and synchronized dance moves that are swag personified. We know it’s early in the year, but it’ll be tough to find anything else in 2013 that packs such a glorious sensory overload into such a short amount of time.

    Great job GG. No doubt this track will become a huge #1 hit in Korea. But still I think Europe and US are not ready for this kind of mashed up track. Despite it is innovative and somehow even danceable, the only way for KPop artist to gain success in Western countries is to become well…more western. See Psy and his Benny Benassi sound-a-like Gangnam Style or Wonder Girls who teamed up with Akon.
