July has certainly been a full month as far as K-Pop is concerned. As with MAMAMOO and KARD, SEVENTEEN has also graced us with a new mini-album, entitled “You Make My Day.” With six fresh summer jams, the boys have outdone themselves yet again with this comeback. Each of the songs will lighten up your summer holiday, no matter where you are in the world. Much like their album “Teen, Age,” released last year, the 13-member group are topping both local and international music charts.
For the modern R&B lovers out there, “Oh My!” will definitely be your summer jam. As usual, with impeccable vocals, each member shines brightly in this tune. This is another one of SEVENTEEN’s specialty club-bangers, and they couldn’t have done a better job.
What summer album would be complete without a song dedicated to a vacation? “Holiday” is the second song in the mini-album and features tropical vibes, truly making you feel like you could be on holiday. It’s definitely a dance jam that will surely brighten up your mood.
Come to Me
Presented by SEVENTEEN’s Vocal Unit (D.K, Jeonghan, Joshua, Seungkwan and Woozi), “Come To Me” is without a doubt built on a tropical house beat. The song is done extremely well. With the soulful vocals of the subunit, the song is also very soothing.
After the Vocal Unit comes the Hip Hop Unit (S.Coups, Wonwoo, Mingyu and Vernon) with “What’s Good.” A funky beat and lines playfully spun by the four members makes this a perfect summer jam. I purely like the song because of the banging beats. Not because they tell me it will be my favorite song.
Much like their other comebacks, SEVENTEEN has once again given us songs produced by all three subunits. This time around, the performance unit (Dino, The8, Hoshi and Jun), created “Moonwalker.” Compared to the absolute fun of “What’s Good,” “Moonwalker” is just a little bit more contained. It’s still a bop, though.
Our dawn is hotter than day
“Our dawn is hotter than day” is the last song in the mini-album. It’s more uplifting than “Moonwalker” but still has the same chill R&B vibes of the rest of the album. It is a nice choice as a wrap-up for this tracklist.
As a Karat, I am slightly more biased than someone who is not. Bu, you cannot deny the talent that SEVENTEEN continues to show off. This album proves that. It also proves that they are finding themselves as artists and truly finding their individual sound. I like SEVENTEEN because they are usually just a really chill group to listen to on a summer drive, with some hard beats, but mainly smooth R&B.
Overall, I really like this album. It’s more cohesive than some of their other albums, which I as a listener really appreciate. I love that the group is continuing to show the individual talent of the separate subunits as well.
