EXID released their AMAZING Ah Yeah mini-album teaser yesterday, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that they’d tacked “Every Night” on to the end of it.
I still consider “Every Night” to be EXID’s best song (I know many K-pop fans agree with me), so I’m glad to see it being recycled again. I mean, it’s been out since 2012, and I still listen to it fairly regularly.
Anyway, this is now the third time that “Every Night” has been released.
The first was as part of EXID’s excellent Hippity Hop mini-album, where it appeared in its original, bouncy synth-pop form with its original title, “Phone Call.”
It was then remixed, renamed to “Every Night,” and officially released as a digital single with a ridiculously good music video.
Although it became a minor hit and became well known and much loved among most K-pop stans, it still feels like a waste that it wasn’t even bigger and that EXID’s sexy gas mask concept didn’t reach iconic status.
Not that this will ever happen, but how great would it be if the inclusion of “Every Night” on the Ah Yeah album (which is 100% going to hit daebak) made it race back up the charts like “Up & Down” did? Another sleeper smash for the Queens!
God, if you exist, please make that happen. PLEASE.
I’m gonna need EXID to make “Every Night” part of their double comeback stages. Ah Yeah sounds like it has some life changing b-sides that deserve to be performed, but I’m team #JusticeForEveryNight!
