Details on Girls’ Generation’s 4th Korean Album ‘I Got A Boy’ Revealed


Girls’ Generation’s fourth official album “I Got A Boy” will be released online as well as in stores on January 1st.

On January 1st at 5PM KST, the album being released on various music sites will carry a total of ten songs, including the title song “I Got A Boy”, previously released “Dancing Queen”, and songs of various genres from dance, ballads, retro pop, and swing jazz. Girls’ Generation’s new music and performance is expected to have a hot reaction from fans all around the world who have been waiting.

Along with the well-known European production team Dsign Music, singer/songwriter Pixie Lott, Joe Belmaati, Yoo Youngjin, Kenzie, Park Changhyun, and other local (Korean) hit makers have taken part in the album, increasing the perfection of the album. There are also songs that members Sooyoung, Yuri and Seohyun also participated in writing the lyrics for, so it’s more than enough to see Girls’ Generation’s various music colors.



The title song, “I Got A Boy”, is an electronic dance song that has a mix of pop, retro and urban genres. The hook’s addictive melody leaves an impression, and the main theme of the lyrics is “girl talk”. It carries small talk about everyday life between girlfriends, increasing the fun.

Also, the song that singer/songwriter Pixie Lott participated in composing, “Baby Maybe”, has lyrics written by members Sooyoung, Yuri, and Seohyun, and is about the nervous feelings of a girl in love, along with a cheerful melody. “XYZ”, which has an impressionable synth pattern, was also written by Yuri and Seohyun, so there is high anticipation for it.

Taeyeon and Tiffany’s duet song, “Glass Child”, is a song that carries the sad feelings of a break-up. Taeyeon’s deep, moderated vocals and Tiffany’s colorful, impressive voice display a fantastic harmony. Girls’ Generation’s previously released “Dancing Queen” is a remake of Duffy’s “Mercy”, and “Boomerang”, from Girls’ Generation’s second official Japanese album, will be presented with new Korean lyrics as “Tell Me”.

Aside from those songs, “Promise” is a mid-tempo ballad, and “Express 999″ is a retro pop song. “Look at Me” will be a song with an organic beat and playful melody, and the hook will have lyrics that are easy to sing along to. “Romantic Road” will be a swing, jazz style song that will remind you of a warm winter. A total of ten songs will be included in the album, and it is expected to charm music fans completely.

Also, on December 31st, a highlight medley for the album will be released through Girls’ Generation’s official homepage, SM TOWN’s official YouTube channel, Twitter, Facebook, Weibo, and Naver. The highlight medley will contain songs from their fourth album, along with various images of the members, expecting to amplify interest in the album.

Girls’ Generation’s “Romantic Fantasy” comeback show will be airing on January 1st, at 11:15PM KST on MBC.

smh, i was cringing enough at the A-YO GG sign in the dance teaser

1.) Wonder Girls don't own that title. The Who, Diddy and Justin Bieber also have songs by that name.

2.) I also saw it translated as 'Talk To Me'.

I didn't say they did, but it was their breakout hit and an extremely well known song, and it would be just like SM to do something like that. If JYP named a Wonder Girls song 'Gee' I doubt sone would appreciate it. So I really hope it is translated as Talk To Me.
lazmy 31st-Dec-2012 05:17 am (UTC)
well to be fair 'tell me' is way more common than 'gee'

either way, it will probably only end up being an association for international fans, since the song has no real english title and it'll be up to the fans to agree upon a translation
but considering that it's a remake of boomerang and the song has "talk about it" all throughout the background of the japanese version, i feel like it could be translated as something along those lines instead of "tell me" (though tell me would be the most accurate translation of 말해봐, probably)
ultraflyy23 31st-Dec-2012 05:35 am (UTC)
"Tell Me" is way more common than "Gee." as somebody mentioned, other popular artists have songs with the title "Tell Me" whilst nobody else has a song entitled "Gee." So the comparison is flawed.
rylee900 31st-Dec-2012 11:02 am (UTC)
I'd maybe see the problem if this was the song they were gonna promote but I mean....It's just one track on the album ffs.
ideservestars 31st-Dec-2012 04:28 am (UTC)
So this is a ratchet concept oh
unicornios 31st-Dec-2012 04:50 am (UTC)

The picture is from their MBC special 'Romantic Fantasy' not the music video.
aleexnews 1st-Jan-2013 08:46 am (UTC)
and they are wearing the exact same clothes in the music video as well, dats wat I was saying
soft_daisy 31st-Dec-2012 05:07 am (UTC)
Jessica, Hyoyeon, and Yuri look amazing in those two pictures. Wish that was the album cover/concept instead.

The 31st...? Is that tonight if I wait long enough?
dalpaengee 31st-Dec-2012 05:22 am (UTC)
thankfully there's only one remake! i wonder how this new korean version on boomerang will differ from the one from so long ago...
as for tell me, the song doesn't technically have an english name (it's 말해봐), so it's not like they're trying to compare to wonder girls or even bring to mind their song. if anything, it'll only happen with international fans if this becomes the agreed upon translation
i'm excited that this release seems to have more variation than the boys, which was a mess of an album with stuff like the boys and trick paired up with songs like my j and sunflower :\ and just that there doesn't seem to be any that will be as horribly cutesy as the latter two

ahhhh im so excited in general though :D and the girls getting more involved in the process makes me so happy i want it to be january first nowwwww
kamakazza 31st-Dec-2012 06:17 am (UTC)
the "Twingkle" on the sign just made me laugh!!! Really SM, I mean really??? You have two fluent english speakers and you did even spell it right and it was a solo track for your company!! Copy and Paste SM!!!
imyoona 31st-Dec-2012 06:33 am (UTC)
That was MBC. It's from their MBC special
kamakazza 31st-Dec-2012 07:15 am (UTC)
Well then MBC needs to invest in spellcheck and get a kick in the face. SM I take back my mean words tho u have an awful track record. MBC I am sending u the 5 dollars for spell check.. I hope the girl saw it and got a nice laugh from it
allegsiseu 31st-Dec-2012 06:50 am (UTC)
haters can't bring me down, so excited for this. literally have not been disappointed in anything released so far.
timetobegin 31st-Dec-2012 06:57 am (UTC)
MTE. I need this album NOW.
flumes 31st-Dec-2012 07:00 am (UTC)
wow
flumes 31st-Dec-2012 07:01 am (UTC)
this better not suck but i'm not expecting much but i'm sf excited
frootums 31st-Dec-2012 07:09 am (UTC)
I feel the same way, trying not to get my hopes up.
miwa201 31st-Dec-2012 12:32 pm (UTC)
lol mte I tried listening to the highlight video but gave up halfway.
frootums 31st-Dec-2012 07:08 am (UTC)
I don't want to get too excited because I'm scared of disappointment, the last time I was this pissy with excitement was with Ga-In's Tinkerbell which was a huge let down for me. Plus I haven't really liked many things from GG since Run Devil Run.
boba_holic 31st-Dec-2012 09:05 am (UTC)
Hmmm, not really feeling those song descriptions. I wish Sunny, Jessica or Soo could have been in the duet instead, considering Taefany already had the whole Twinkle album this year.

YES TO ALL OF THIS!!! XD

rylee900 31st-Dec-2012 10:57 am (UTC)
"Romantic Road” will be a swing, jazz style song that will remind you of a warm winter.

Lol why are these song descriptions always so ridiculous.
eishastan 31st-Dec-2012 05:46 pm (UTC)
mte it's so ridic, almost as bad as adding netizens comments on news articles.
