Days after NCT U released ‘Boss‘, they’ve released ‘Baby Don’t Stop’.
‘Baby Don’t Stop’ is the second release in the ‘NCT 2018’ project and features Taeyong and TEN. It marks the return of TEN who has been missing from promotions due to an injury – and what a welcome return it is!
The song is a beat-driven, perfect pop track. The start of the song sounds like a continuation of ‘Boss‘, but from there it delves head first into it’s own funk dance explosion. The song kicks off with a strong bass line that it retains throughout, but employs swirling synths and percussion that never allow the track to settle into a static groove. The track is always on the move and that is where the addictive beat will get you! The song builds from the minimalist bass at the outset into the moveable feast it becomes throughout the track.
The vocals from Taeyong and TEN are simply outstanding and captivate you from the first line. As with the music behind the vocals, the song moves easily from vocal to rap and back again. Allowing the vocal to build with the music, until you are hypnotised by the rhythmic hook and Taeyong and TEN low-key growling at you to ‘Baby Don’t Stop’
The clip itself looks like it was shot in the Ukraine where ‘Boss‘ was filmed. It moves easily from a worn-down concert hall to outside shots that are kind of bleak and dreary which keeps your attention focussed on the song itself.
The choreography is, as you would expect, completely next level with both of them pulling off the high-energy moves with complete ease. The entire concept of this track is laid-back sexy and Taeyong and TEN are the perfect pairing to pull this off.
