Hey guys!

One of my favorite things to do when I was back home in L.A. was to take drives with my friend B Nice so that we can listen to our newly discovered favorite songs by BTS. We both discovered BTS over the pandemic and have been crazy for all things BTS. When I moved to Vegas, those drives stopped but I decided that I’m going to use my blog to share what songs I’m listening to each week with both B Nice and everyone else who reads this blog.

Here’s what I’m listening to this week:


This song is my favorite Jimin song. The song, his performance of this song at the concerts, and just everything about this song hits all my favorite buttons. I love listening to him sing this song too. He’s so stinkin’ talented and one of my favorite dancers in the group. Man but this is a great song.


I can almost sing this song without looking at the easy lyrics. I’m so proud, haha. This song is a bop. I freaking love every note, every lyric, and the minute the first chords start playing, I’m already in a better mood. This song is freaking good and when Jungkook sings it in concert, I be like….okayyyy JKKKKKKK!!! When I first read the lyrics for this song, I was cracking up because these guys are not lying…they sure are pied pipers!


I’m not going to lie, when I watched the concert where Jin performed this song, I teared up. He sang this song so well and with so much emotion that it was hard not to feel what he was singing. It was because of that performance that I became a huge fan of the song. I listen to this song all the time and I’ve listened to it a lot this week. So stinkin’ good.

Eye Candy Friday: Min Yoongi, Suga from BTS

Posted January 15, 2021 by Rowena in Features, Music | 2 Comments


Eye Candy Friday is something that I’ve been doing since I first started my personal blog way back in 2003. That first personal blog is long gone but I’ve never really grown out of the eye candy phase. I’m always up for some eye candy. Whether it’s a character from a book (male or female, I don’t discriminate), a character from a movie or TV Show, if I loved them and want to gush about how much I loved them, you’ll find them here. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

This week features my bias wrecker in BTS. Min Yoongi aka Suga. Suga is my favorite rapper in the group and his grumpy nature appeals to me. I’ve watched countless performances, Run BTS episodes and all of their other content and Yoongi is such a highlight for me. He’s one of the older members of BTS and it really shows. He’s the grandpa of the group because he’s got no time for idiocy, he’s always tired from staying up all night working on music but he takes good of his younger members. He cooks most of the boy’s meals along with Jin and the boys described his manner of taking care of them as quiet. He doesn’t make a big production of taking care of the members. He just does it and I heart him.












I loved seeing this so much. I believe it’s during one of their Bon Voyage trips, yeah to Hawaii and V and Suga are on the same team. They’re the definition of opposite and Suga’s way of dealing with their disagreements is to hold V’s hand. LOL, the cuteness!

Until next week…enjoy!

Hey guys!

One of my favorite things to do when I was back home in L.A. was to take drives with my friend B Nice so that we can listen to our newly discovered favorite songs by BTS. We both discovered BTS over the pandemic and have been crazy for all things BTS. When I moved to Vegas, those drives stopped but I decided that I’m going to use my blog to share what songs I’m listening to each week with both B Nice and everyone else who reads this blog.

Here’s what I’m listening to this week:


Dude, why didn’t anyone tell me how hard this song goes? I’ve been busy listening to all of the popular songs that I’ve been sleeping on these underrated bops. I reviewed the album that this song is on yesterday and ever since I discovered this song, it’s been constantly on rotation on my playlist. B Nice, this one is another banger to add to your playlist. This is definitely our kind of jam.


I heard this song while watching one of their fan event concerts, I can’t remember which one but I had no clue what song it was so I was a happy camper when it came up while I was checking out the Dark and Wild album. This album was so stinkin’ good. This song is so stinkin’ good too. I’m telling you, BTS be feeding us good. I have like over 100 songs, group songs, solo songs, and they talking about more new stuff coming out this year too? Thank you, more please!


This has been my jam for a while now but it’s not a popular BTS song, at least I don’t be seeing it anywhere so I’m adding it to this post. If you’re new to BTS like me and dig pop and R&B songs, check this one out. Baby Vocal Line are the bomb in this one and so are the rappers. This song is just all around good.

The BTS Listen: Dark and Wild by BTS

Posted January 13, 2021 by Rowena in Music, Reviews | 0 Comments

I started listening to BTS albums from the beginning of their musical journey and this series will feature my thoughts on each of those albums. There are a lot of albums but there are also a lot of solo work that I’m interested in covering here on the blog so I decided to just name this feature, The BTS Listen because I’m an organization nerd and things need to be well organized for me or I get itchy.

This week, I’ll be featuring the following albums: Dark & Wild. So let’s get started, shall we?

Dark & Wild

Release Date: August 19, 2014
Run Time: 51 minutes, 31 seconds
Tracklist: Intro : What am I to you, Danger, War of Hormone, Hip Hop Phile, Let Me Know, Rain, BTS Cypher PT.3 : KILLER (Feat. Supreme Boi), Interlude : What are you doing now, Could you turn off your cell phone, Embarrassed, 24/7=heaven, Look here, So 4 more, Outro : Do you think it makes sense?
Songs in Order of How I Liked Them: 24/7=Heaven, Embarrassed, Danger, 2nd Grade, Could You Turn Off Your Cell Phone, War of Hormones, 2nd Grade, Outro: Do You Think It Make Sense?, Look Here, Let Me Know, Hip Hop Phile, BTS Cypher Pt. 3 Killer, Rain
Favorite Line from Song: Tomorrow is the date day that I’ve been dreaming of, Such pretty stars and such a pretty moon, The light that lights me up seems even more tonight, The whole world seems made for me, right?

In their first studio album in a year and two months, BTS sings about love gone awry in DARK & WILD. They warn the girl who acts like she doesn’t love them not to test their love anymore.

The boys are no longer in their school uniforms. They have become tougher, singing that their love is not to be treated lightly. A year and two months into their debut, BTS made sure that the visuals, performance, and all the elements of their first studio album are flawless. Tracks that highlight the different genres of hip hop—South, West, Boom Bap, and Trap—provide a clear direction of BTS’ music. The title track “Danger” is a tightly-composed hybrid hip hop song with a piercing punk-rock guitar sound that features stark rap, a powerful hook, and exhilarating shouting.
This album was longer than the other albums that I’ve listened to so far, coming in at 51 minutes long. There are 14 songs (1 of them was just an intro though but it was a bomb-ass intro, I wanted more from that one) and most of them are more on the hip hop side but I enjoyed the entire album. I don’t think I skipped any of the songs at all. Rapper Jungkook makes an appearance and I’m a huge fan of that. I wish he rapped more now but then I’d probably miss Singer Jungkook more because that guy is badass.

My favorite song from this bunch is definitely 24/7=Heaven. That song was such a sweet song and I’m a sucker for those kinds of songs. It’s a young love kind of ballad that I enjoyed from beginning to end. I looked like a little schoolgirl grinning like a crazy person listening to this song, I’m sure but I don’t give a damn. This was a great song. I was scared of V with his grown man’s voice in this song too, haha.

All in all, this was another fabulous album with a great balance of songs for the rap line and songs for the vocal line. There was enough goodness to share the spotlight and it was another album that hit every high note for me. I’m loving this musical journey through all of BTS’s albums. There’s so much to love and just when you think you can’t love another song of theirs more, you hear hidden gems like Embarrassed, 2nd Grade, and Could You Turn Off Your Phone to prove you wrong. So much good stuff on this album. I definitely recommend it.

Favorite Performance from This Album

This is one of my favorite dance performances of theirs. Their lines are clean, their moves are sharp and they all know where they’re supposed to be at every second of this dance. This is such a fun performance and though I love the War of Hormone dance, Danger is my top favorite performance on this album.
Final Thoughts

Loved It

Eye Candy Friday: Kim Taehyung, V from BTS

Thanks for coming along for the ride.

Today’s eye candy is my bias from BTS, Kim Taehyung aka V. If you’re a fan of BTS, it shouldn’t be a surprise why I love this guy. He’s a complete savage in interviews and with the other members of the group, he’s low key an airhead and just so freaking funny I can’t stand it. I tried to capture his personality in the gifs shared below so enjoy!
