The Wonder Girls Release "Like Money" Feat. Akon

Wonder Girls released their mv for "Like Money" featuring Akon today, and I'm sure their fans, the Wonderfuls (cute right?) were spazzing happily.







I thought the mv was cute and well done (and expensive!) and I like the whole space theme and their fun outfits.  However, I'm not a fan of the way Akon's part dragged on so long.  I wish they'd interspersed his vocals amongst the rest of the song but sadly I was not the producer so it's not to be.  Sighhh...  I'd have liked the song a bit more then.  As of right now I'm thinking the song is cute but it's not something I'd go out of my way to download or listen to.

What I do like is that some Kpop companies are making an effort to produce music videos that are different.    It's nice to know that not every mv is going to be set in a box (hint, hint).  




I also noticed today that the Wonder Girls have garnered some attention here in the U.S. with their new release.  There's a great little article about "Like Money" that was posted on Billboard.com today.  Be sure to go check it out here and comment accordingly if you're a Wonder Girls fan.  Perez Hilton was also moved to write about what he calls one of his fave groups today here.  Finally, MTV called them out on their Buzzworthy blog here.


"I'm taking u down, bishes!" 


Will the Wonder Girls drive right over their competition?  We shall see, won't we?

  1. Ha ha, we are never going to agree on music I don't think. I love this track. This kinda sound is very, very big in the UK now thanks to David Guetta, DJ Fresh & Calvin Harris. The fusion of electro pop and hip hop is dominating the UK charts. This could be a hit in the UK apart from the girls image and the mediocre dance routine.

    Reminds me a bit of "Turn Me On" by David Guetta and Nicki Minaj. In fact I'm sure they've used the video idea a bit too. Check it out.

    Me thinks if "Like Money" got any airplay here it could be a top 20 hit.

    1. Oops I forgot to reply to this post. I actually normally like that hip hop/techno fusion. I just don't like that Akon has such a lonnnggg part in this. I wish it had been interspersed throughout the song like he normally does. Seems like it would be awkward to perform unless he was actually there too.
