Currently, Netizens are discussing whether Wonder Girls’ new retro dance song “So Hot” includes a sampling of Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” because they say that the former has the similar keyboard instrumentals of the latter.
However, today, May 28, through a phone interview with Edaily SPN, JYP Entertainmanet, Wonder Girls’ agency, cleared the issue.
“Eurythmics’ ‘Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)’ was a famous song but it wasn’t used as a sampling for ‘So Hot.’ The song is an original composition of Park Jin Young,” a JYP official explained.
On a side note, Wonder Girls’ hit song “Tell Me” has the sampling of Stacy Q’s “Two of Hearts.”
Wonder Girls is set to make its comeback performance on May 31 in MBC “Music Core.” Sadly, Yoobin, the group’s rapper, will have to lip sync during the performance because she was recently diagnosed with vocal cord lesions and spasmodic dysphonia. Yoobin was adviced to take a 4-week rest and to get treatment for her vocal cord.
