KpopCharts Update: Infinite vs B.A.P. vs Xia

OKOKOK WAIT. We didn’t include Batoost’s “Shadow” in this week’s videos because we filmed this on Thursday, and Batoost came out on Friday. Hell: WHY SO LATE? Anyhow, here’s who we talked about:

B.A.P. “Hurricane” – Vote for it Here

The Engrish of this song is too damn high

Infinite “Destiny” – Vote for it Here

Oh man, this is great. Really great. I want to review it. But I want to know more about Version A before we make a decision as to whether we’ll choose this or postpone it till later. Anyone know if Version A will come out? If so, when? If we talk about this, we won’t talk about Version A, similar to Exo’s Wolf. We can’t review the same song twice. So what should we do? What if we delay reviewing this and then Big Bang and Girls Generation come out with two videos? Infinite will be screwed and you’ll hate us forever. It’ll be like the Chaser all over again. So many choices, guise. Why can’t labels just release the videos at once, you know?

Xia “Incredible” – Vote for it Here

Xia! I see you rolling down your sexy windows at us. That’s clearly a reference to your old dance from Ayy Gurl, isn’t it? You even have a dispassionate American rapper featuring on your song. Quincy’s lines aren’t as memorable as Kanye’s, though. WHAT’S YO FRIENS ATTITUDE WHY SHE SO DAM RUDE HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA. Oh man, that was classic. Also, my apologies for being so out of touch with Western music, but who the hell is Quincy anyways? Is he a big deal now? It’s hard for us to keep up to date with Western pop music, because A) We don’t hear it here and B) We barely give a shit. Ha! I don’t think I’ve ever listened to Chris Brown or Drake before in my life, really. I did listen the hell out of Frank Ocean last year and Kendrick Lamar, but they’re not really mainstream, are they? I don’t know. Point is, Quincy bored me, Junsu would have done better without him, but would have done BEST if I was involved. Just saying…

  5. Infinite’s Version A had scenes with a plane graveyard so they edited it out after the Asiana plane crash. They are still debating whether or not to put Version A up, but I wouldn’t wait on it because they have filmed at least one music video that they haven’t released. Also some fans, mainly myself, are still waiting for the dance version of Man In Love.
    I say don’t wait on Version A.

  6. Seriously though, if you decide to postpone the Infinite video, I’d rather you review Junsu’s instead. We’ve already seen several B.A.P reviews this year, and frankly Junsu’s video was more interesting. There’s not much that you could say about ‘the loof is on fire’, other than… well… simply making fun of it.

  7. As far as I know Quincy is not main stream at all. Not that I listen to American pop/rap music even if I do live here. But my friends who do, have no clue who he is. His claim to fame, for all I can tell, is that he is Puff Daddy’s son. Either way, the song could have done without him, even though his lines are hysterical.

    And excuse my outburst here JUNSUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (catches breathe)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For me it’s the best song (minus that rap solo) and the MV is KMM gold. Infinite’s Destiny is really good and I really hope Woolim won’t shelve the other version of the video. It would be such a waste. And BAP’s Hurricane is growing on me, but the MV is also great fodder for KMM.

  8. My favorite song of this list is Junsu’s, but Please you should reveiw B.A.P’s Hurricane….for those whistles……..on the loof..

    I really liked almost all of the songs on this weeks updates, the almost being bap (sorry guise the engrish…normally i can ignore it, but yikes.)

    But Increadable is tottally up my alley, and I’m not Junsu biased,

  9. When I read the name Quincy, I thought of the Quincies in Bleach. I’m an otaku and a K-pop fan, okay, I don’t know anything about American music!
    Also -shorter Music Mondays? But … I like the long ones…

    • I agree that video needs more votes to get up to the top 3. Let’s get on that Nasties!!

  12. I do appreciate B.A.P. with the old school hip-hop lyric. It makes me want to listen to the original song from Rock Master Scott and the Dynamic Three.

    That… or watch House Party again…

  15. My 2 favorite groups and one of my favorite artists out there… This is just too hard for me. And even though that LOOF is too precious to NOT talk about it, I will be happy with any choice. :D

  16. Infinite- please please

  17. I will say this though, this is the most conflicted I’ve ever felt towards picking KMM. I’m just voting for everything at this point.

  18. Woollim Entertainment stated that Infinite’s Destiny version A is just version B without some airplane crash scenes. So I guess they’re pretty much the same (and there won’t be any 25 minute version). Please review it without delay :D

  19. Hurricane, hands down!! There’s just so much to talk about besides the loof (louvre?)! Like Zelo’s Michi Go inspired outfit! Or the Playboy-bunny-pool scenes…or the glorious, high class Ross and CVS!!

    (Totally not B.A.P. biased here…nope…not at all…)

  20. Man this weeks top 3 is strong! Whatever shall S and M pick? The loof, the loof, the loof is on fiyah is what I aim for :)

  21. So…Google informs me that Quincy is P.Diddy (Puff Daddy)’s son. Huh, who knew?
    As an American who does listen to Western music, I had absolutely no clue who Quincy was. I’ve never heard of him before. Unless I’m listening to the wrong radio stations.

    • Apparently he was on MTV via the show “My Super Sweet 16”. So he is known more because of that but still not well known aka Main stream. That just may be his situation in America. There are a few artist that do okay in America but are loved in Europe ex: Kelly Rowland.

      When I saw the Junsu video, I didn’t think it was for the North American audience. I immediately thought it was targeted for the European audience. The video looks like it was shot in Ibiza. A lot of the times when people say west or western, they are lumping North America and Europe together. On the contrary, North American culture has a lot of differences to European culture. One being that Europeans really love electronic music, while most Americans don’t.

  23. JUNSUUUU! ;)

    • Agreed! BAP and Infinite can battle it out next week. Give Junsu a chance. Its bad enough that Loen backed out of promoting his album beyond the showcase. And the pimp suit bed scene!!! Its KPMM GOLD!!!! Junsu just had to add some hip thrusting near a girl’s crotch into an otherwise PG video.

  24. Wow the Junsu song is great and the video is mostly awesome but I got soooo much secondhand embarresment from the bedroom scenes.

        • Really I thought the Gold PJ reminded me of G-dragon and his all gold outfit haha!!! :D But I think Junsu rocked that gold outfit more than G-dragon but that’s my opinion though!!! :D hahaha!!!

        • I think JYP had a hand in this somehow, that suit looks like came straight out his closet!!! But all I got to say is…regrets are eternal!

  25. i would like to say this….if Infinite is qualified to win…REVIEW THEM
    if u dont…i’ll be like The Chaser all over again since a lot of big comeback will come out later
    like Taeyang,GD, 2ne1 might release another song….
    so yeah~

  26. Maybe you guys can just postpone Infinite’s Destiny till version A comes out~ Wollim Entertainment already said they are going to release it after they edit the plane crash.

    3 years ago
  27. How about like this, since Infinite is currently in the first place, and you guys want to review it, just take the vote for this for the A version later because yeah unfair to us too to vote for the same song twice, even it’s a same song. So if Destiny is your choice, you can save a spot for them when they release the A Version so just review others this week but make sure to review the A version or we’ll fall to The Chaser bitterness again lol :)

  28. An official from Woollim Ent said that Ver A contained footage of plane crash as shown in the teaser and they did not upload it in light of the recent Asiana Airlines plane crash. They are doing some edits and the date for publish is still not set yet.

        • I know Bruce Vanderveer and he’s really proud of his work here, and I think he should be. This song is a GIANT boost from the previous tracks he had released (some of which Bruce Vanderveer was also apart of) but this single blew me away. The video did well to inspire Summer frenzies but I think that if they had a different approach, it would have looked less like a cheesy 1996 rap video and speak more to the “incredible” song it is.

        • Jo

          tell him his rap writing skills are below subpar! “shake your spaceship candy”? srsly?!

  32. If you’re leaning towards reviewing INFINITE, please just do it now. Woollim (Infinite’s agency) had to edit out their original music video because of scenes of a plane crash due to Asiana’s recent plane crash in SF. The original video is Ver. A. They’ve announced today that they MIGHT release it when things calm down but no date has been set yet.

  33. so this is a WIN, WIN, WIN, WIN situation that you guys have going. Have fun taking your pick.

  34. An article of allkpop said that the MV of Infinite Destiny here is just an edited version of the original. Version A had airplane scenes but because of the Asiana Airlines crash, they cut it out because they wanted to be respectful.

    Apparently, the company is probably going to release it but they haven’t said when exactly. Here’s an excerpt of the article:

    “INFINITE returned with their “Destiny” MV which was marked “ver. B” in the title, indicating that there is perhaps a “ver. A” waiting for us, and Woollim Entertainment confirmed that there is a “ver. A” heading our way.

    Woollim Entertainment explained that the version we saw was actually an edited version of the original. The video was edited after the unfortunate Asiana plane crash in order to show respect for the tragic event. Thus, all the plane scenes that were included in the MV had been cut out.

    The agency commented, “We are currently discussing our plans about whether to release [ver. A]. We are discussing towards the direction of releasing it, but the exact time period has not yet been decided.”

  35. This week’s choices are so hardcore. Seriously, I think it’s the first time since you guys did the top 3 choices rule that all 3 are so review-able. I really don’t know who to chose…

  36. Woollim released version B instead of A because the version A had scenes of plane crash and due to the recent accident with Asiana Airlines Woollim decided to take these scenes of the video. They said that the version A will be released, but as they had to make cuts don’t know, for now, the exact date.
