Throwback Thursday: QBS – Like the Wind’s First Anniversary! #QBS1stAnniversary
It’s Throwback Thursday (at least on the West coast still) and since QBS‘s first anniversary was yesterday (26th June 2014), this article is dedicated to our three girls that shined as a sub-unit in Japan. Just a little more than a year ago, Qri, Boram and Soyeon promoted their sub-unit while the rest of their younger sisters had their N4 in Korea.
“Like the Wind” might not be your typical T-ara K-kop or J-pop kind of song simply because the whole concept is really like the wind. It’s supposed to be soothing, calm, and sweet, which I think it was a good change and deviation from the group’s regular style. After all, it’s their sub-unit, so it’s really a chance to show a new side of themselves. Soyeon’s vocals filled most of the song, with Qri and Boram supporting their maknae (Soyeon, since she’s the youngest of the three).
I would say that it is a success in Japan because the fans enjoyed it, as much as they had enjoyed the other Japanese performances of T-ara as a whole. The concept itself fits the three of them very well, especially the MV that emphasizes on purity and serenity of the beach, breeze and water. If you’re a fan of T-ara’s Japanese original songs (mainly because Soyeon sings like an absolute J-pop artist!), QBS’s “Like the Wind” could probably be one of their best. It is definitely a song for QUEEN’S to remember.
Happy birthday QBS~!
