Got7 Girls Girls Girls

“Girls Girls Girls” is one of the songs from the first Got7 full-length album, Identify released in November of 2014.  This is definitely their most confident and in your face song on the album’s tracklist.

Story

Despite the fact that this feels solely like a dance video, there actually is some underlying story below it.  The music video begins with the boys getting on these nifty little scooter meets skateboard type things.  We don’t have anything like that by me, so that was really cool to watch.  Anyways, they get on these and rid to a shop, which is actually a hidden dance club of sorts.  As they’re going in, a girl find something they dropped and follows them.  She finds her way into the back and sees what they’re hiding behind their ‘school’ personas, and ends of being fascinated.

What I found interesting about this was how different they looked and moved from the beginning to the end.  There was the same sense of confidence throughout, but as they changed and started to dance, their confidence skyrocketed.  What I didn’t like was the fact that there was no conclusion to the story.  We see the girl become interested in the group, but we see nothing done beyond that.

Some fans have theorized that the girl represents the general fan population viewing Got7 for the first time and seeing their confidence and skills.  While I’m not sure how valid that is, I can see where they’re coming from.  There is definitely that sense of discovery, observance, and fascination mixed in throughout the music video.

Costumes and Set

I absolutely loved the set for this.  It was dark and had some floor and backlighting that really set the mood.  It truly felt like a hidden club, one of those non-mainstream places for dancing and hanging out.  The people scattered throughout were a nice touch too.  Each of them had on different colors and outfits, so it felt a lot more natural and felt like they’d just come in from their jobs or classes.

The costuming for the group left a bit to be desired.  I loved the outfits themselves and the way they matched but had unique touches, but at the same time, they were really neutral in color and tended to blend into the surroundings a little too much.  It was hard to keep track of the ones in the back once the light wasn’t directly on them.

One thing that I think should be mentioned was the cinematography.  It had the feel of a single-take shot, where there were no retakes or fixes, just the one shot.  The split screens were part of what gave it that feel since you could focus on the individual and the dancers at the same time and eventually they’d shift right back into the scene.

Song

This song just oozes sex appeal and confidence, though not in a bad way.  The entire song focuses on how they’re super attractive and girls can’t keep their hands off them.  While that seems like it’d be a bit too much, it didn’t actually seem to take away from the song as a whole. The background music definitely helped make up for it since it kept your head bobbing the entire time.  The hooks, while repetitive, were rather catchy.

Overall, the vocals and raps blended well and each person got at least a small part to show off their strong points.

Lyrics

I don’t have to try, don’t know why
Just seeing me makes them go crazy
My look, my style, my swagger
Oh, I don’t do anything, just love myself
Just give a glance with a casual approach
Hey girl! How you doing?

(Girls Girls Girls they love me)
What’s with my body?
(Girls Girls Girls they love me)
From birth until forever

I just show up
Give a glance
Stay breathing
(Girls Girls Girls they love me)
Wear a little smile
Move slightly
Nothing much done
(Girls Girls Girls they love me)

Don’t know whether it’s love or not
So many temptations everyday
This girl, that girl, all day long
Oh, better make my mind up on just one
That’s what I want to do,
But they won’t let go

(Girls Girls Girls they love me)
What’s with my body?
(Girls Girls Girls they love me)
From birth until forever

I just show up
Give a glance
Stay breathing
(Girls Girls Girls they love me)
Wear a little smile
Move slightly
Nothing much done
(Girls Girls Girls they love me)

I’m not exaggerating, unfortunately
This is not just a song, take my word for it
Don’t give a twist,
Please listen to me
Don’t know if you’ll understand,
But it’s like I ate a magnet
My body pulls the girls to me,
I can’t do a thing
So many times already in a single day,
I’m too popular

Whether young or old,
They grab me and say let’s play
Whether they know me or not,
They say “Whatcha doin’? Let’s have a talk”
I wish I had a twin
Maybe clone myself like the Matrix
I am the only one, but am in high demand
Every lady wants a piece of me

I just show up
Give a glance
Stay breathing
(Girls Girls Girls they love me)
Wear a little smile
Move slightly
Nothing much done
(Girls Girls Girls they love me)

Dance

I wasn’t actually a huge fan of the dance at first, but the more I watched the videos, the more I noticed the little things about it that really appealed to me.  Firstly, those flips.  That’s all I have to say about it.  Second, the way they incorporate stomps into the dance fascinates me.  It’s more obvious in the second video since you can hear it more, but they’re really on beat with the actual song when they hit the ground.

The dance is one of those pieces that fits extremely well with the theme of the song and combines, dare I say, aegyo with hip-hop.  You don’t often see that done successfully, since most groups focus on aeygo for fanmeets instead of actually tossing it in their videos!
