A, iGOT7, are you ready for this? Let's go. One step, two step girl...lol. Just kidding. Anyways...Hey guys! So I have officially moved and I will be posting a blog post about that soon-ish. I definitely had internet a lot faster than I had originally planned. But you didn't come here to listen to me blather about my internet, you came for the goods. I present...GOT7.

Before I start this blog though, let me tell you about a contest that I am running. So I got to thinking that since I am doing profiles on these groups, that I would pick two and put them in a head to head battle. Well, since I thought that, why not pick two groups that have performed the same song. So here we are GOT7 vs BTS. If you follow them you'll know which song I am referring to.


Here is the original performance of "This Love" by Shinhwa. Now, let's take a look at the BTS cover.


BTS also performed the song "T.O.P." by Shinhwa in the same performance, so here is a look at the original "T.O.P" performance by Shinhwa so you get an idea.


And last but not least, here is GOT7's performance of "This Love".


So who do you think performed it better? Well that is what this is all about!

1. CNBLUE
2. BTS
3. GOT7
4. NU'EST
5. 2NE1

*fans self* So these guys are HOT. This is one of JYP's first hip-hop groups who debuted in 2014. They started flipping their acrobatic ways into hearts worldwide. Now let's meet these boys.

Music. In order to talk about GOT7 music I need to talk about JJ Project first. So JJ Project was a small thing that JYP put together in 2012 with two future members of GOT7. Debuting as JJ Project were GOT7 members Junior (now called Jinyoung) and JB. Junior got his nickname because he is Junior JYP and he recently decided that he wants to live up to the name Jinyoung instead of being just Junior. Anyway, JJ Project released an EP called Bounce. GOT7 actually wound up performing this song years later. Then in 2014 GOT7 debuted and here they are on their way to releasing their newest FLIGHT LOG: Turbulence album. Let's take a look at the albums that have already been released (I'll talk about individual songs after).

So GOT7 has an extensive list of songs under their belt for only being around for 3 years. I can't wait to see what else they have in store for us. Now let's look at individual songs and share with you some videos. 

"Bounce" 

This song is fun and you get to see JB as a hot blonde. Plus, seeing GOT7 performing this song is something else. It fits with the style of GOT7. 



"Girls Girls Girls"

GOT7's debut song. Filled with confidence and flipping tricks. 



"I Like You" 

A fun and cute song that shows off a different side of these boys. 



"Follow Me" 

"Oops!" So you get to hear Jinyoung rapping in a GOT7 song showing that even though he does a lot of singing now he still has it with rapping. Plus this is just an all-around fun track. 


"Hello" 

This is a hip-hop track introducing you to the many talents of GOT7. 

"A"

This is totally Youngjae's breakout song. 



"Stop Stop It" 



"Gimme" 

This song makes you want to give yourself over to these boys. I certainly wouldn't say no if they asked me to make them my man....


"Magnetic" 

Sorry....I was too busy focusing on how cute they are...


"Just Right" 




"Nice" 

The Just Right version of Hello...seriously. 

"If You Do" 




"Confession Song" 



"HOME RUN"

Hitting a home run into my heart....okay that was corny. 




"Fly" 



"FISH" 

Welcome to the Fish Tank. This song reminds me of their older work like Follow Me and I Like You. It's fun and very easy to get caught up in.

I can't wait to see what new music they have for us. Apparently one of the new tracks from this album being released at the end of the month will be a continuation of the If You Do theme. That's pretty damn exciting. So that is all for this time! Don't forget to participate in the contest for those pretty awesome prizes. Sorry that I couldn't get you guys something cooler, but I am pretty broke right now from moving...plus I wound up adopting a cat who was in desperate need of home. I'll introduce you to her soon unless you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat in which you've already met her.

See you all next time! 

Ja ne! 

xx Kat
