South Korean girl group STAYC has returned with their first mini-album “STEREOTYPE” on September 6, 2021, along with a music video for the title track of the same name.
The album comes five months after their second single album, “STAYDOM“. The latest album consists of four songs in total, “STEREOTYPE”, “I’LL BE THERE”, “SLOW DOWN” and “COMPLEX.”
The group’s last release was the song ‘ASAP‘ from their second single album.
The title track along with the other three songs in the album has been written and produced by Black Eyed Pilseung along with Jeon Goon, and arranged by Rado.
The song showcases a refreshing concept while the members show off their youthful charms. It is of the pop genre and utilizes Synth and Brass sounds in order to create an uplifting atmosphere. The members’ bright vocals only add to the energy of the song.
The lyrics of the song sing about one’s desire to not be seen through the prejudices of society, but rather live one’s own life however one wants to. The lyrics are unapologetic and spread the message of not grouping people into stereotypes, and not care about other people’s opinions.
“Don’t look with your tinted glasses on,
Don’t judge me with your prejudiced eyes,
I’m a different woman”Stereotype by stayc
The music video for the song is in a high school setting wherein we see them sing about not wanting to be judged by people based on their prejudices. The video is filled with bright colours with the girls dressed in various colourful ensembles. It embodies the meaning of the song well and serves as a perfect accompaniment to it.
