Blackpink stole the show at SBS Gayo Daejun 2017 on Monday, December 25.
On Christmas day, Blackpink not only turned heads on the red carpet with their immaculate and perfect look but they also performed an incredible cover of Wonder Girls’ So Hot during special stage performance at SBS Gayo Daejun 2017.
We have been waiting for Blackpink to hit the stage again this year, and finally our patience is paid off. Their performance was beyond awesome!
The theme for this year’s SBS Gayo Daejeon was “Number One”, featuring all artists who placed number 1 in the charts. There were special stages and collaborations that cover hit songs throughout the show.
On Friday, December 22, 2017, Blackpink and FromYG Official Instagram posted a poster confirming Blackpink will perform a cover of Wonder Girls’ So Hot during SBS Gayo Daejun Special stage performance.
YG Entertainment also revealed that the audio from BLACKPINK’s cover will officially be released through SoundCloud and YouTube at 9 p.m. KST on December 25, the same day that the 2017 SBS Gayo Daejun will take place.
“So Hot” a song by Wonder Girls was initially released on May 22, 2008 for digital download. Afterwards, the maxi-single titled So Hot (The 3rd Project) was released on June 3, 2008. The single became an instant hit and quickly a number one hit on various online and offline charts. “So Hot” became an instant hit and was the number one song on MBC’s show Music Core and on SBS’s Inkigayo for three consecutive weeks.
When we heard the news for the first time, we became even more curious how Blackpink will slay the song since ‘So Hot’ doesnt sound like Blackpink style. 🤔
But Teddy, Blackpink producer can never go wrong. He is brilliant and he knows how to make the song really fits Blackpink. He then rearranged the So Hot original song by adding a bit ‘black’ and ‘pink’ sense to the song. Therefore it sounds more hip hop and more into Blackpink music style.
Those remix combined with Blackpink unique and diverse vocals made the performance became so lit. Their spectacular show heated up the entire building, even though it was freezing outside, inside the Gocheok Sky Dome it was ‘So Hoooot’. 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Live Performance: Blackpink – So Hot Remix
Blackpink live performance of So Hot hit 36,000 views on Naver TV, which is dominantly first place among other idol groups. On Youtube, it hit almost 2 million views in 15 hours, (on December 30, 2017 it has 6,955,036 views already). Amazing!!! 👏🏼
