DescriptionEdit

Song ReviewEdit

According to Allkpop, "[LATATA is] Chock-full of interesting hooks against R&B melodies, "LATATA" picks up especially during the chorus, where an army of girls is proclaiming boldly. The power of the beat and the in-your-face attitude is what makes this song work so well." [2]

According to ᴍɪɴᴀʜ | #sᴛᴀɴ(ɢ)ɪ-ᴅʟᴇ (Amino), "I knew this track would be lit. After I heard the teasers and I'm not disappointed. LATATA is a upbeat and catchy song and shows perfectly their talent. All of them have their own vocal colour but they're matching well together in the song. In my opinion, Soyeon did a great job with introducing the song and her own rap part. Also, I really enjoy listening to Minnie's, Shuhua's and Yuqi's part. all of them are foreigners and mostly the foreigners are getting dragged in the dance line and are not that experienced sometimes in singing in korean, but all of them did an amazing job - especially yuqi. she is the main vocalist, but has a deeper voice than most vocalist. I think that's one of her charming points and it's relaxing to listen to all their voices. LATATA is in general a catchy but also a relaxing song. it makes me feel not so stressed anymore and let me easily dance along with the amazing beat. also the I love ya part in the background is really cool and the every day every night LATATA line is absolutely amazing."[3]

MV ReviewEdit

Here's another MV where you really have little idea what's going on, but it looks like fun. Everything from playing with controllers, sitting on a pink horse statue, eating lollipops, and playing mini-golf. If this appears to be a random collection of scenes, it is, only connected by the presence of the girls themselves. Badass girls out for a night on the town.

They dance well, though, with confident, definite movements. They use elbows, arms, and side profiles to their advantage in rowing motions, and the leg work isn't too bad (especially considering what they have to do to stay in frame). They clearly came well-prepared and they bring their A game here.

기나긴 너와 이 밤을 너와 이렇게 너와

기다린 너와 시간을 너와 이렇게 너와

어둠 속 Red light

시선은 Left right 불 위를 걷나

시작의 점화 가까이 온다 누가 뭐 겁나


Uh oh 어디까지 더 깊이 빠져들지

중독된 향기까지 그렇게 뒤섞여버리지

I love ya

Every day every night latata

With you like this on a long night

With you during this long time

In the darkness, there’s a red light

My eyes go left right, walking on the light

The starting point is coming near, what’s there to be scared about?


Uh oh, how much deeper can it get?

The addicting scents get mixed together

So we can burn it up even more

There’s no tomorrow


I love ya

I’m singing for you, so you can fall deeper, Lata

I love ya

I’m dancing for you, so I can trap you inside me, Lata

I love ya

Latata latata latata latata

Latata latata latata latata

Sing for me, so I’ll never forget you, Lata

I love ya


I love ya

Every day every night latata

I love ya

Every day every night latata


Don’t be lazy, come to me baby

Time is too short, this is still too basic

Go in deeper, swallow me up

You can get drunk, tomorrow doesn’t matter

I’m gonna burn it all up

It’s not hard, everyone’s jealous of you

Nice, let’s burn this night up

Muah muah muah


Uh oh, how much naughtier are we gonna get?

Til the night turns to morning, we’ll get even crazier

So we can burn it up even more

There’s no tomorrow


I love ya

I’m singing for you, so you can fall deeper, Lata

I love ya

I’m dancing for you, so I can trap you inside me, Lata
