The 9-Member Girl Group Pens Lyrics in their Heartfelt Album
By: Brooke Price
It’s been five months since Twice’s latest comeback and the girls have been working hard. Their new album, “Feel Special” exhumes an elegant and upbeat essence, with a mesmerizing title track and delectable B-sides.
The title track, “Feel Special” is an upbeat pop song with a powerful message. The song is about having someone there for you when you feel alone, who makes you feel that you are loved and worth something; “one moment I feel like I’m nothing at all, like no one would notice if I were gone. But then when I hear you calling me I feel loved, I feel so special.”
In the music video for “Feel Special” the members dance in elegant clothes with blinged-out jewelry; diamond earrings, pearl necklaces and glittery tops and dance in front of a shimmering gold background with extravagant chandeliers.
The girls later pair up with each other, and one member, Jeongyeon, pairs up with herself, as they have found the person who makes them feel loved and special.
The fact that Jeongyeon pairs up with herself in the music video is impactful since it shows that she was able to look inside herself and realize that the only person that she needed to make her feel validated was herself.
“Rainbow” is the second track on the album and is written by lead vocalist, lead dancer, and center of the group, Nayeon. This song has an upbeat tune and discusses doing whatever you want and having the power to make your own decisions. It also mentions having confidence in yourself and discusses being yourself and staying true to you.
Jihyo, the group’s leader and main vocalist wrote part of “Get Loud,” which has an electro pop beat, which can make the listeners pumped up while they listen to this song.
“Get Loud” talks about karma and how if someone does something bad, such as lie or spread rumors about someone, they’ll have something bad happen to them in return; “you don’t know that the arrowheads you shot will return to you in the end.”
“Trick it” was co-written by lead rapper and vocalist, Dahyun. This song has an upbeat sound with a catchy chorus that will be sure to get stuck in your head.
Momo, the main dancer, vocalist and rapper, wrote part of “Love Foolish.” This song discusses that the longer a person is in a relationship with someone, the more they start to dislike them and that the person was foolish for falling in love with them in the first place. “Love Foolish” also incorporates pop and electronic elements into the song, which makes it pleasant to listen to.
Twice’s song “21:29” was written by all 9 members. The members finished writing their lyrics to the song at 9:29 PM, which can also be written as 21:29. According to thestandom.com, the girls “finished writing lyrics at that time and all the members found themselves in the same room, as they were in the middle of the tour.”
The song “21:29” is a ballad. In the song, the members discuss their gratitude for their fans and dedicate their song to them.
The last song on their album, “Breakthrough” is a Korean version of their Japanese single. The song has an electro pop tune which makes it catchy to listen to.
“Breakthrough” has a feel good message that discusses staying true to one’s self and regardless of what anyone says, being unapologetically yourself.
Nayeon, Jeongyeon, Momo, Sana, Jihyo, Mina, Dahyun, Chaeyoung and Tzuyu have put their all into this comeback, which doesn’t disappoint. The album flows nicely and the fact that the members were able to become part of the songwriting process gave the album a nice touch and made it more personalized to the fans.
