I love that GOT7 sees everyone freaking out, apologizing for them not making first place on MCountdown and immediately they reassure fans that everything is fine and it’s not that big of a disappointment. Like….that’s the thing about all of this.
Like, I’m not disappointed that the first place went to another group. I did my part, and the boys did theirs. Like I said in the tags a few posts ago, these boys could come in 50th place or whatever and I would still be out here, screaming my heart out about how much I adore and cherish and love and treasure this group. Music isn’t about accolades and pretty, shiny video views. It’s about soul, it’s about heart, it’s about finding something that speaks to the soul within and touches your heart. That sound, artist or group may not ever see a chart position or even 5 million views on YouTube, but that’s not the point. The point is that the artist moves you so much, connects so deeply, touches parts of you you weren’t even sure existed that you smile when you see that artist or you can’t help but move when songs play.
That is GOT7 to me. I don’t give a shit if they meet or break any records. 7 for 7 is an album that we all can be proud of. Not only was a majority of this album written and produced by members but it was fucking phenomenal. It was their opportunity to open up and show us a side of GOT7 we haven’t seen and hear their distinct voice and how it’s grown over the last few months.
For all of that, let’s not be the rain clouds at our own parade. We still have so much to celebrate, including this album. GOT7 deserves all the love and the smiles and the warmth we can offer. And that’s exactly what I’m giving them because to me, they’re always 1st place and to me they will always be the best, most intriguing, craziest, most fun, most talented KPOP group out there.
