BoA - Bump Bump! feat Verbal MV


BoA - Bump Bump! feat Verbal


BoA hooked up with Verbal again for her latest Japanese single called Bump Bump!. I'm diggin this cut! And the music video is awesome. It has a a real organic feel to it. I thought at first that the music video was going into a Black Eyed Peas kind of direction, but no... its quite Jpop-ish actually. BoA is also sporting a new haircut. A short-haired BoA? I thought I'd never see the day. I like the new look though. Its fresh. And Verbal never ceases to amaze me. He always seems to wear the most outrageous and flamboyant gear and still looks fly. Verbal's fashion-sense is literally out of this world. He really, really reminds me of a Japanese Shock-G (from Digital Underground). Shock-G also wore some really funky gear back in the Digital Underground days.

If the instrumental sounds familiar to you...that's because Bump Bump! samples the very same Soul Power '74 by Maceo & The Macks, as Jennifer Lopez's 2005 smash-hit: Get Right.
