Video of the Day: G-Dragon's "Coup D'etat" + Lyrics And A Playlist

"People
The revolution will not be televised
The revolution is in your mind
The revolution is here"

G-Dragon is back, and he's just released the mv for his revolutionary new song, "Coup D'etat", as well as part 1 of the album.  Yes I said part 1.  We'll get into that later.  Have you seen the mv yet?  I had to watch it a few times just to get my thoughts together, so let's watch it again:

"Coup D'etat" was co-produced by world famous dj Diplo, as well as Baauer, who produces trap and bass music like the song "Harlem Shake".  Yes, GD got the guy that made the song "Harlem Shake" for his album because he is that epic.  Of course you know that meant that this song had to have an obnoxious bassline, as well as some nasty drops.  It's the perfect song to bump super loud in your car as you're driving down the highway, which I will for sure be doing.

This song definitely took some getting used to, because it was the last thing I was expecting.  I'm not quite sure what I was expecting, I just know that this was not it.  It has grown on me though.

"Coup D'etat" is certainly no "One of A Kind" and it is a far, far cry from "Crayon".  This is Dark GD, who seems to be a more jaded and grown up "Heartbreaker" GD.  An even weirder GD, if that's possible.

The imagery in this mv is intense.  It's like our cotton candy Kpop world gone corrupt, awry and dystopian.  To me, this is GD as a skewed fantasy version of Lestat the vampire x a f*cked up anime character.  However, that's just my take on it.  I really can't make any references to anything else, it's just plain old crazy ass G-Dragon at his finest.

Have I mentioned yet how much I love his hair and his suits?  Everything from the makeup on down to the way they framed each shot is impeccable.

This should be the cover of the best fantasy novel ever.

GD has done the faux hipster hip hop look and the millennial trendster look so why not a vampire?  It fits this dark world he's created, where he's the world weary warrior, besieged on all sides by the media and fangirls alike.

I'm going to assume the crows represent sasaeng fans and crazy netizens, because that seems highly plausible.

They're the bane of any idol's life, right?

I'm completely flabbergasted by this:

Everything about this shot is bad ass, including the Heartbreaker masks in the background.

Is he trying to tell us he was an innocent babe when he made the "Heartbreaker" album, and now he's become this distorted version of himself?  Or maybe he just wanted to paint himself black and wear a vampire grill...  Only he knows the truth.

Check out the lyrics so you can make your own decisions.

Coup D'etat lyrics English subbed:

People
The revolution will not be televised
The revolution is in your mind
The revolution is here 


This is my Coup D'etat
Boomerang going from mouth to mouth
Hand's up get high
The song starts
I’m the tagger
Hid more tightly, I can see your hair
I’m a new boiler in your dad’s house
Yeah this is a spoiler
I'm so fly
I’m scary F-Killer
Gorilla that steals girls’ hearts 

Bang bang bang
I earn money with my teeth
With my one song
You can get robbed at the company
In this GAME I am the hood to the winker
You are lo to the ser
You’ll never know
FAME 

This is my Coup D'etat
Boomerang going from mouth to mouth
Hand's up get high
The song starts
I’m the tagger
If time is money I’m so poor
1 year, 365 days, Hong Kildong, God’s grace
My phone keeps on ringing
Like a new born child
My phone keeps on barking
Like that dog next door
Bow wow wow 
yippie yo yippie yay
I’m the best at self-admiration and being cocky
I’m shameless
I'm so fresh so clean
I compete with the laundry house
And my flow so sick
Keeps on going to the intensive care unit
WHAT
This is my Coup D'etat
Boomerang going from mouth to mouth
Hand's up get high
The song starts
I’m the tagger
Head shoulder knees and toes
swag check mic check
one two three four
I’m Pacman who eats MC
Head shoulder knees and toes
swag check mic check
one two three four
This is a gospel AMEN
Ay you want some
you want some more It's not enough
Ay give me some
give me some more alright y'all 

This is my Coup D'etat
Boomerang going from mouth to mouth
Hand's up get high
The song starts
I’m the tagger
This is my Coup D'etat
Boomerang going from mouth to mouth
Hand's up get high
The song starts
I’m the tagger

Here's a Coup D'etat album playlist for your listening pleasure:


Now go buy the album.  As you might already know, the album has been divided into 3 parts:

The 2nd part will be released on September 5th, and the last part on September 13th.  This all has something to do with G-Dragon being a perfectionist and wanting to change stuff until the last minute.  Luckily for us, he realized that VIPs would've lost their shit if the album was postponed, which makes him a very smart man.


What do you think of G-Dragon's Coup D'etat mv and album?  Have you bought it yet?
