FIESTAR, the recent rookie participants of LOEN Entertainment‘s LOEN Tree Summer Story album, have now dropped their single for “Wicked.” This collaboration pops with the addition of Korean hip-hop icon, Tiger JK, while it also showcases FIESTAR’s addictive, pre-official debut musical prowess.
These girls know they’re “Wicked,” but so is this track. Starting off with some extremely intriguing vocals, read: near chipmunk-style high-pitched stuff, “Wicked” shines when Tiger JK lends his very own hip-hop spin. Specifically, Tiger does well keeping up with the breakneck pace. But when members Yesi and Cheska’s take on hip-hop bamfery, it punctuates the crank of the song’s house music chorus, pitting pretty sick rapping next to a Tony Basil-esq “Hey Mickey” back beat. As for Yesi and Cheska’s slick rhymes, see below…
Yesi: Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend Feat. Lil Mama”
Cheska: Kreayshawn’s “Gucci Gucci”
Their rookie promise aside, this is just the beginning of FIESTAR’s success. “Wicked” is definitely a refreshing hint of what’s to come. Plus, if Tiger JK has given his go-ahead, then there’s no reason not to believe in FIESTAR. We’ll see just what that is on August 31, when they drop their debut single.
