E-TRIBE revealed, “I used the hook technique to turn the song into a sort of riddle. I wanted the unique expressions to arouse the curiosity of listeners. The ‘let me see ya lalala, love me hey yayaya’ part just means ‘please look at me, as I love you.’ The ‘u-hee, u-hee’ part is a mimetic word and my way of expressing the way a girl smiles while looking at her crush. The ‘go it go it go it go’ part means ‘I’ll fold my heart up and send it to you.’”
If you’ve listened to T-ara’s “YaYaYa” track, it might have sounded a bit nonsensical. Composer E-TRIBE took a moment to explain the meaning behind his lyrics for T-ara’s comeback track.
He continued, “I wanted to express the unique music through lyrics that sounded like a spell. Please don’t misunderstand it and just enjoy the exciting music. I meant to explain the song before its reveal, but instead decided to find a way to converse with the public as a composer and thought this would be the opportunity. Please be understanding.”
On the 5th, T-ara was on SBS TV’s Inkigayo with MCs Jong Yonghwa, Sulli, and Jokwon.
But on that day, T-ara’s lyrics for ‘YaYaYa’ is still being criticized. The repetitiveness of the phrases ‘YaYaYa’ ‘Go It Go It’ ‘Hot Hot’ and ‘Yeah, Oh my oh my’ has been compared to by people to situations such as a father coming home and yelling at a mother for having dinner ready too early
On that day, KARA, 2AM, The Ballad, BEAST, SISTAR, Orange Caramel, KCM, Lisa&Bryan, Yang Donggeun, VNT, Bohemian, and many other performed.
