B.A.P is back once again with their 5th single album, “Put ‘Em Up,” after the conclusion of the world tour in Seoul, South Korea , Live On Earth 2016: True Awake!
Released on August 8th, B.A.P has joined the list of summer comebacks with their music video and title track, “That’s My Jam.” As this is their 5th single album, BABYz (B.A.P’s fandom name) can once again see B.A.P in a bright and colorful album.
Following is a review of their most recent album and overall rating.
Track 1: Do What I Feel
Right from the beginning, the intro of the song makes listeners and fans feel as if they are are in a festival filled with bright lights and dancing around, having fun. The track then leads into an EDM-type instrumental. The track is very fun and upbeat, similar to “Carnival” from their Carnival album. Just from the instrumentals alone, it encourages listeners to let loose and do exactly what they feel. True to the concept of the album, this song is perfect for the summer season and one to add to that funky and upbeat music playlist.
Title Track: That’s My Jam
Another EDM-type track that will have listeners and fans jumping up and dancing around just like B.A.P does in the music videos. One of the most impressive parts of this song, is how member, Jongup, hits these high notes that showcases his growth as a vocalist and shows his ability to sing. The song is also fun and reminiscent of their past songs, “Feel So Good” and “Stop It.” There is an element of freshness that the song gives and like their first track from this album, “Do What I Feel”, it is perfectly suited for the summer. The music video accentuates the funky and upbeat song, having bright colors, fun scenes involving the members of B.A.P, and even a dance party. B.A.P also alludes to their past music video concepts, adding to the fun vibe of the music video.

Track 3: 뭐라고 할까 (What More Can I Say)
The only slower track from the single album with an R&B and a song that fans and listeners will once again enjoy. This track is an example that B.A.P can hit a diverse style of music. Though the first tracks are upbeat and fast, this track balances out the rest of the mini album with its smooth and slow instrumentals and vocals. For the first time on this track, the youngest member from B.A.P, Zelo, sings on the track. There is also a sense of nostalgia, similar to music released in the early 2000’s and this track also showcases the B.A.P members vocal abilities. Overall, such a sweet track to listen to the album.
B.A.P once again are able to deliver a solid album, one that fans (old and new) will truly appreciate. With a mix of upbeat and mellow, this album is an album worth adding to the music library. B.A.P’s “Put ‘Em Up” definitely encourages the action with the exciting and cheery songs while giving giving a song to slow down and enjoy at the end. It is clear that B.A.P is here to continue on with releasing music and show their ability to cover a large range of sounds.
Overall Rating: 10/10
