STAYC’s ‘DDU-DU DDU-DU’ stage is said to be the best cover version to date
Recently, at the KCON 2022 music event in Seoul, STAYC performed a cover of BLACKPINK’s hit “DDU-DU DDU-DU”. The group’s cover performance of this hit song is attracting the attention of a large number of fans, receiving praise from netizens.
Before that, STAYC was often said to be a ‘visual group’ as the members’ singing ability was not really good. However, with this cover, STAYC showed off its ability to sing live very well.
BLACKPINK’s music is often commented on as difficult to cover, however, STAYC was not overwhelmed by this hit song and the girls still delivered a confident performance.
In particular, the 6 girls showed respect to their seniors by not changing the slogan of BLACKPINK in the original song. Thanks to that, they also received many compliments from the public. This performance is also praised as the best cover that fans have ever seen.
Besides a lot of praise, there were also suggestions that the rap part was not even good. However, it is understandable for STAYC that rapping was not their strongest, and that the verse from Jennie and Lisa in the original was masterful.
Some comments from netizens:
- The best cover of any I’ve seen. It’s hard to cover YG’s songs, but the group’s doing so well!
- This is the best version to date. It’s not perfect but they respected BLACKPINK and did not change the slogan
- The rap wasn’t done well, but this was the best Girl Group to do a cover of this song anyway.
