Twice - FANCY YOU Album Listening Post


Fancy MV Post

Fave tracks? Honestly this is such a solid album but I really enjoy HOT in particular. Strawberry is serving some f(x) 4-walls era realness.

The whole album is fucking great but Hot in particular is disco perfection

I also really love Girls Like Us, Charli and MNEK came through for us 😩

Maybe it's just me or are the raps a bit better written than usual too? I enjoyed Momo rapping, she should do more of it

Btw what is the truth of their charting situation? Someone talk me down lol. I didn't expect them to beat BTS but there's another artist ahead of them too I heard. Also their first day sales are lower than both Izone and BP??? What???

Ah IDK D: I don't really follow the charts but that would be really unfortunate since I think this is one of their strongest releases album wise! Truly this album deserves to succeed imo!
ironmangina 24th-Apr-2019 09:34 am (UTC)
The other artist ahead of them (along with bol4) is a band called jannabi, they were recently featured on a pretty popular TV show "I Live Alone" and the song above Fancy is right up Korea's boring ballad alley. As for the sales, Hanteo for some reason decided to start counting their sales even though some stores hadn't started shipping the album out, they did this for Yes or Yes too. BP's numbers seem to have been very front loaded and iz*one is a produce group so.

Regarding the charts I see no issue. WIL, Signal, DTNA and some others didn’t have stellar charting and 2 of them ended up as SOTY, also, many digimon released in april, but they still reached 1st on release and peaked a record number of UL. Regarding their album sales, an user above explained and they usually sell 300k stuff, so no worries.

Haha cool I feel better now. This is the title that deserves to flop the least

What does UL mean?

Highest unique listeners in the first 24 hours by Idol Groups on MelOn this year (so far):

1. Boy With Luv — 934,298
2. FANCY — 763,049
3. Kill This Love — 733,801
4. Gogobebe — 674,283

They broke BP 2019 record. And here you can see how BTS is doing amazing for an idol group given they are huge right now.
dior_chic 24th-Apr-2019 01:51 pm (UTC)
Oh yea BTS being #1 I’m used to it lol, I have some issues with them but overall I’m content with their success

I guess my confusion is more what does a unique listener entail/count as?
kimbafierce 25th-Apr-2019 01:17 pm (UTC)
It's the count of the new listeners who are tuning in and listening to your music, not people who've been blasting the song on repeat for hours. It's an indication of the song's popularity.

ugh dahyun looks so beautiful with the blue hair! i'm glad it's not that green mess from the promo pics.

my faves are "fancy", "hot", and "turn it up". the whole mini is one of their best releases, though.
lightframes 24th-Apr-2019 04:38 am (UTC)
My favorite part of the choreo is right at the beginning when they walk out of the long line, group into 3 lines and FLEX

I love this mini album. Definitively buying a physical copy - though I'll wait to see if they're repacking it (as they've done with the last two minis). It's cohesive and I don't skip any song, which hadn't happened to me with a Twice release for a while. They found a good balance between their cheerful energy and a more mature concept.
My favourite bside so far is Hot, but honestly the only song I don't love is Stuck In My Head (I don't skip it either but it's just fine). Girls Like Us is my kind of uplifting, anthemic pop ; Turn It Up is surprisingly funky ! and Strawberry is a nice, chill way to end the mini.
myrrhcat 24th-Apr-2019 10:30 am (UTC)
easily their best album!! this is right at the intersection of "twice's sound" and the sound i like most. my favorite track right now (besides fancy) is "hot".
also, does anyone else think "turn it up" sounds like a disco-fied version of uni.t's "i mean"?

And knowing that the girls wrote most of the lyrics makes it all the more special. Momo and Sana did great with HOT and Turn It Up and recognized lyricists Jihyo and Chaeyoung are cementing their career with the constant bops they release. I have no idea how they have time to do stuff like that, tho. My faves are HOT, FANCY and Turn it up
dior_chic 24th-Apr-2019 12:17 pm (UTC)
HOT and Turn It Up is amazing, and knowing two of my faves worked on it :)))) I'm a happy fan

This album is amazing!

Usually, with Twice albums, I have one or two b-sides from each album that I'm like oh, this is nice!...and thats about it. Touchdown and Be As One are the main two I'd listen to regularly. But here I have 4 more b-sides I'm def going to replay a lot this summer. Hot is perfect, I wish it could get a special MV for the fans. It's a great summer nights song, I kinda wish this was released before DTNA (not dissing that song, I love DTNA but I think Hot fits more what ifans are looking for). Stuck In My Head, Girls Like Us, Turn It Up all deliver for me. Strawberry is the only one I'm skipping, I love chill music but idk that one just doesn't do it for me. Knowing MNEK was involved in Girls Like Us makes it even more special for me, my faves coming together :)

You don't like Sunset? *clutches pearls in shock*
dior_chic 25th-Apr-2019 12:10 pm (UTC)
I think I ignored most of YoY’s b sides because I had to think what album was Sunset from 😬 looking the titles over, I really didnt remember these so I relistened. I really enjoy Sunset and After Moon so they made my main playlist, Lalala is pretty good too :)

kimbafierce 25th-Apr-2019 01:31 pm (UTC)
i honestly forgot it was on the yoy ep since I deleted all of it apart from Sunset
but now that you reminded me, it should have been the title even if it was released in the middle of winter --_--
kcaomei 24th-Apr-2019 02:55 pm (UTC)
i'm loving this album so much!! i knew MNEK would come through on his track and the fact that multiple members participated in so much lyric writing makes me so happy (and they did such a great job!). fancy, hot, and girls like us are my faves but honestly i really enjoy every song... even strawberry which is my least fave. all of the girls look amazing this era esp dahyun with her blue hair and long haired jeongyeon<3 the last time i really loved every aspect of a twice comeback was likey so i'm super hyped and happy! ٩(^ᴗ^)۶
binderwritings 24th-Apr-2019 03:46 pm (UTC)
This album is really good, it's one of the better releases of this year. Fancy is great but some of these b-sides are even greater! Is it common for their songs to be 3:00 and under? I was really getting into Girls like us and then it ended.
kimbafierce 24th-Apr-2019 05:32 pm (UTC)
Commenting while jamming to HOT. Hime Momo brought the house down with this self-confidence anthem.

This is a first to me, to like every track in a Twice mini (tbh any mini in kpop), usually I like the title track and one or two songs from the whole EP. But this is so good, like Strawberry is not a even sound I thought I'd ever enjoy, but surprisingly I like it. Sure it's my least favorite, but I don't skip it when it comes on shuffle.

Fancy is the best track on the album, it's a worthy title

HOT my favorite bside. I love everything about it, even the repetitive phrases at the very end of HOT don't bother me. I love it so much and I can't wait to see them perform it on tour. I swear if they don't... I'll RIOT!

Stuck in my Head has some amazing parts (Mina's soft pre-chorus part, and Sana's part after the second chorus) and one low part (the rap, sorry DubChaeng) and because of that it is my second least favorite song.

Girls Like Us, after the album's highlight teaser I expected this song to be my favorite, but it wasn't. IDKW. I LOVE the chorus, the verses are really good, and while the rap is not the best I don't hate it. Overall, it's a great song and I love it, but not as much as I expected to.

The start of Turn it Up throw me off, I thought I'd be a boring balled, but I'm SOOOO glad it isn't. and Momo got a tiny rap part yay!

Overall Twice's best EP.

i love "hot" too! i also like girls like us. those are my favs of the mini. overall pretty good but my fav minis of this year are still loona, gwsn and clc
yxerin 25th-Apr-2019 08:40 am (UTC)
ppl were saying this was twice’s best album which kinda fucked up my expectations while listening i wasn’t really feeling it at first. smth happened during my second relisten of the album tho and suddenly i was jamming out during hot so yeah it’s certified fresh™
dunno if i would call it their best album (put some respect on the signal mini’s name) but it’s up there

my favs are fancy, girls like us and hot. turn it up could’ve been the funky bop we deserve but the chorus is kind of a let down

also noahfence but why does chaeyoung sound like... That. her rap in stuck in my head was so unexpectedly bad it cracked me up like she can sound good so idg why she insists on sounding like a fucking clown while rapping
snowphone 25th-Apr-2019 12:23 pm (UTC)
i've listened to the album a bunch of times now, and i'm a bit surprised to find that i actually don't really like any of the songs besides fancy. i'm not sure why.
suggestivepeach 25th-Apr-2019 12:48 pm (UTC)

I’m late to the post but ahhhhhhh. This album was everything I wanted from them and more. Pop EXCELLENCE with no piano ballads (not that their piano ballads are bad.... but they’re not what I regularly listen to)

I’m still not liking the repetitiveness of the chorus in Stuck In My Head, even though I like the rest of the song.

Strawberry is very cute and has Chaeyoung written all over it.

Girls Like Us is gorgeous, although it’s still inferior to Sunset because I was slightly let down by that rap.

Hot and Turn It Up and probably???? My favourite b-sides on the album? Lyricists Momo and Sana RISE.

I’m so so so excited for them moving forward.

This is extremely surprisingly good!! I haven't fully enjoyed Twice music since like the Cheer Up album lol

LOVED Hot and Turn It Up!
ohlookshiny 1st-May-2019 08:59 pm (UTC)
their best album for sure. i like hot (perfection) and strawberry the most.

i usually only buy twice repacks, but this album is too good. i bought version c!

Enjoyed most of the songs on the album and Fancy has grown on me. The girls looks good but I am just so used to their cute imagine this will take time to get used to.
