Recently, a track resembling Girls’ Generation‘s ‘I Got a Boy’, sang by UK singer Katy Tiz, surfaced online, giving a start to discussion about it being the English demo version of the group’s recent hit.
Some netizens speculate if this is just an English cover or a remix like the video itself suggests. But there are some points that make this song an official English demo of ‘I Got a Boy’. First of all, it’s recorded in studio quality, and only people with the rights for the track can use it. Second, a recently signed recording artist, who isn’t credited in the track’s production credits, recorded the track hints that the demo was probably pitched to this artist for release before being sent to SM Entertainment. Girls’ Generation’s album booklet states that the originally, the song was titled ‘Shiner On You’, which Katy Tiz sings in the chorus of her recording.
Do you think this is really the English demo of ‘I Got a Boy’?
