It’s difficult to consider the collaboration between Tiger JK, Yoon Mirae, and Bizzy as an entirely independent release, but since their backgrounds are as independent artists, I figure it’s close enough.
MFBTY is a three song single from the trio. The first song is a callback to the older styles of TigerJK and Yoon Mirae with bass-heavy samples and verses unlike what popular music is showing. With the history the trio have, their vocals are highly tuned and a mixture of Korean and English. The delivery of lyrics on “BizzyTigerYoonmirae (MFBTY)” is impressive on the speed and melody that the song uses. It’s an excellent introduction.
“Sweet Dream” is the main single that combines an interesting instrumental that favors synth and pop in the beginning, but adds an electro-hip-hop theme. Yoon Mirae is able to use her impressive singing vocals as a base for the start of verses, but also extends her amazing hip-hop delivery on the song as well. Tiger JK and Bizzy both show off their outstanding skills as vocalists on the song. It’s a great example of three artists given an equal amount of time on the debut song.
The last song is a remix of Sweet Dreams that is very club friendly and adds a strange dimension to the song. It is a little weaker than the original because it’s focused more on dance beats and the original song is a lot more interesting.
It’s going to be interesting to see how this collaboration grows, but for the first single, MFBTY have really destroyed any expectations of what the trio were going to be.
