Narsha is probably the ultimate K-diva. She’s talented, but not too talented to the point of being boring; sexy and stylish, but in a completely camp kind of way, and her music is creative enough to be interesting but still sticks to a style that appeals to true K-diva fans (i.e. the gays). The only thing to fault NarshAllah on is the size of her solo discography, which is so small that it consists of just one EP and a lone digital single. Other than that, the closest thing we’ve got to more Narsha tunes is a couple of collaborations with her Brown Eyed Girls bandmate Miryo, like the legendary “Leggo” and the charming but uneventful “Tonight.”
Now, four years after Narsha changed the game by singing in four different languages and making out with a white guy in “Mamma Mia,” she’s finally returned to the electro-pop genre by lending her sweet vocals to Humming Urban Stereo’s “Bullshit.”
The new song is lifted from Stereo’s 10th anniversary album, which features all-new versions of a selection of the band’s past tracks. “Bullshit” sticks to the standard Humming Urban Stereo blueprint, meaning glitchy electro beats galore. This one’s also peppered with symphonic bursts, which really compliments an accomplished vocalist like Narsha.
With a title as great as “Bullshit” I wish I could understand the lyrics (or at least find a translation), but the production alone is so off the chain that it doesn’t really matter.
I’d give Minzy’s new v-line jaw for a new Narsha album, but I’d even settle for a few more K-indie EDM joints with her on the vocals. But considering how badly Nega Network handled the last Brown Eyed Girls album, I’m not surprised that we still haven’t received a proper follow-up to Narsha’s self-titled opus.
Anyway, get into it below, and then go hunt down the rest of Humming Urban Stereo’s new tracks for more similar collabs with the likes of G.NA, NS Yoon-G, and Ladies’ Code hottie Ashley.
