I really dig this debut, the song is fun and works well with Somi's somewhat limited vocal ability. And Somi is this dorky and mildly eccentric girl crush through and through, this style suits her so well.

Two thumbs up.  :thumbup :thumbup

So yeah, I should probably reply to this thread.  XD

First of all, I had a bit of a love-hate relationship with Somi at first.
I know many girls who look kind of similar, which made me biased against her.
But! She's definitely proven herself and I fully support her now. Loved her debut single.

She actually visited the Netherlands last year.
Here are some clips from national and local news outlets:





I'm not gonna lie, the fact that she's part Dutch definitely gives her tons of bonus points, haha.
If she ever comes here again, I will do my utmost best to go and meet her.
