Well, 4minute is now auditioning to join YG with "Hate". Read below to see why a song with a lot of potential will be remembered as one of the worst songs of 2016.
Upon listening to "Hate," I was expecting some kind of epic rock ballad by the way it starts out. It's a well-worn path, and it generally works. I didn't even mind the warbles introduced with Hyuna's verse, as it wasn't overbearing the rest of the instruments. Even the added electronic beats added to Sohyun's verse didn't bother me. Sure, at this point, this song was a bit disjointed, and I was willing to wait to see if these different instrumentals would end up blending together.
Then a tragedy happens. We are subject to a chorus featuring a robot who farted into an empty metal trash can in the studio. The music producer, obviously stoned or drunk at the time, thought it would be a good idea to use this as a chorus of a song.
The chorus is so bad it ruins whatever good parts the rest of the song had. Without a good chorus, I don't give a fuck about the rest of the song. However, the rest of the song was just as disjointed as the first minute of the song.
If your fetish is robots farting into a metal trash can with hot Asian girls singing to the "beat," then this song will be up your alley. For the rest of us, move on.
