Music Monday | BIBI — PADO

Music Monday | BIBI — PADO

Hello my BAYOG luvlies~ We’re back with what I guess is my official final summer 2021 edition of Music Monday~ Today, I decided to share another pretty recent release. It was hard picking a final summer track, but I really like this singer. I also really liked this song since it dropped. Today, I’m sharing BIBI’s ‘PADO’, which just dropped back on September 10.

We did previously kind of go over BIBI in a previous Music Monday post a few weeks ago. I’m pretty much just gonna copy and paste the background info I put on the [‘Meu Tempo’ Music Monday post] a couple of weeks ago (with a few minor details added)…

BIBI (비비) is one of my favorite more current female vocalists and K-R&B artists. She started off as a self-produced SoundCloud artist under the name Nakedbibi. She was signed under Feel Ghood Music in 2017 after Yoon Mi Rae discovered her songs on SoundCloud. Feel Ghood Music is a label by Tiger JK (aka Drunken Tiger), a very well known rapper and name in Korean hip-hop. Yoon Mi Rae (aka Tasha Yoon Mi Rae and Tasha Reid) is Korean-American rapper and R&B vocalist, as well as Tiger JK’s wife. Y’all can think of them like the Korean Jay-Z and Beyoncé. Both are considered legends and important figures in Korean hip-hop and R&B. BIBI was a [contestant on the show The Fan], and finished in second place. She made her debut in May 2019 with [“BINU (Soap)”]. She also wrote the lyrics for [TWICE’s ‘More & More’ with JYP]. More recently, she was also featured on [‘Second’ by HYO (Hyoyeon of Girls’ Generation/SNSD)]. I love BIBI’s vocals, but also that she uses a variety of genres in her music from R&B, soul, hip-hop, and ballads. Also, she’s super quirky and out of the box. I also just like that you can tell that she genuinely loves music and is really into it. My recommended tracks would be [“Restless(신경쓰여) (LISTEN 035)“] for something chill, and [“사장님 도박은 재미로 하셔야 합니다 (KAZINO)”] if you wanna get turnt. [‘Eat My Love’] is a really fun and funky track to listen to~ I also liked Min Kyung Hoon x Kim Heechul (Super Junior)’s [“한량 (Hanryang) (feat. 비비(BIBI)) (prod.딘딘)”], which is a hip-hop track with a traditional flair to it. Of course, one of my other favorites is her feature on [Heo Won Hyuk’s ‘Meu Tempo’]. If you wanna get another look at BIBI’s music, vocals, and her quirkiness…check out her peformance on [Dingo Killing Voice]. She thinks she’s not particularly pretty or talented in singing or being a performer but believes in her strong point as a lyricist. Although, I honestly think that she’s gorgeous and hella talented all around. BIBI is also just really funny and down to earth, I recommend this clip of her on [Kangnam’s show]. Also, as a fun fact, you’ll notice that she always has 2 dots or “moles” drawn under her eye. It’s how she differentiates her persona as a performer and her actual self. It also kind of helps give her courage to perform. If you’re interested in learning more about BIBI, I recommend the clip of her being interviewed on Jessi’s show, [Jessi’s Showterview].

Artist: BIBI/비비
Single: PADO (파도)
Genre: K-R&B, K-Pop
Language: Korean
Origin: South Korea
Release: September 2021

Alright, so let’s get into it. Today’s track is PADO, which is BIBI’s latest single to drop just the other week. PADO (파도) means “wave” or “tide”. Although, with this song…I’d say more “wave”. To simply put it, it’s a summer romance track. It definitely screams summer vibes with the guitar parts. It starts off chill, like a gentle wave, with the start of the guitar and the actual sounds of the ocean waves in the track. The way the music and BIBI’s vocals in this song really do kind of feel like a wave of emotions as it starts to build up towards the chorus. The chorus particularly feels like a powerful wave engulfing you, which basically captures that feeling of being hit with those strong emotions of love. It’s all about the different waves of this emotion you’re feeling. I honestly love this song. It’s a bit different from her other tracks that I love, but I love it still. I find it to be a really fun track to listen to. Also, I’m just gonna throw it out there that the lyrics can be a bit more uh…considered a double entendre haha.

Music Video and Lyrics

The music video was actually pretty interesting for me. I didn’t think I’d particularly care for it since I actually don’t pay attention to music videos that much these days. However, I thought it was a fun video. It was bittersweet, but I still liked it. Again, it tells the story of a summer romance. Particularly, it’s a romance of BIBI and this guy that’s saved her. BIBI is a mermaid that’s been stranded ashore and saved by this dude. Ironically, the guy seems to be a chef that specializes in fish. It then shows them spending time together and seemingly developing feelings for each other. It’s pretty sweet. So time passes, and the waves of emotions grow. It shows what seems to be BIBI having legs and being able to walk with loverboy. However, this seems to be but a dream. In the end, the lovers separate as BIBI returns to the sea. It seems like their love is just impossible. As quickly it came with the waves, it also quickly left with the waves. In between all that, you have scenes of BIBI performing the song on the beach with a band…as well as product placement since it seems that BIBI is a presenter for Puma. Overall though, I think the MV did take more of the bittersweet route than you’d expect from the lyrics. It’s still good though~

Again, the lyrics is about being in love with someone and how it’s like a wave. There are gentle and soft waves to it, to more intense waves, and waves that crash into you, feel overwhelming and even make it hard to breathe. All the while, the lyrics can also be taken to have a double meaning and be more steamy.

With your eyes closed
You leaned on me
Every time you tickle me with your hair
With a light kiss
My heavy heart gets erased
And I can’t seem to snap out of it

You shake me up
You lift me up and pull me down
Making my feet float up
I just can’t figure it out
If someone hear me call me 911

You are my WAVE
Save me, MAYDAY
I can only think about you
I’m a castaway

I’m trapped in your arms
As if my breath will cut off
You don’t seem to want to let me go
I try pushing you away
But you wash over me again
Giving me no time to think

Soaking me slowly
Drowning me cruely
Killing me gently
Call him if u see my S.O.S

You are my WAVE
Save me, MAYDAY
I can only think about you
I’m a castaway

I don’t care if I drown, so come wash over me
I can go deeper so please soak me

Wanted to surf
Don’t wanna dive
Don’t wanna swirl
I’m gonna die
Imma go with the flow
I’m gonna ride
But you’re too big

You make me salty babe
Don’t wanna trip too hard
Either let me go
Or completely catch me

You are my WAVE
Save me, MAYDAY
I can only think about you
I’m a castaway

I don’t care if I drown, so come wash over me
I can go deeper so please soak me

I’m a little overwhelmed…I know, I did it to myself…

Also, I might be taking a week off of posting so don’t be alarmed. Not gonna lie, yo’ girl has been swamped with things. I was doing the partnership thing with WordExcerpt, discussion meetings with Manta, my IRL job, subbing, and a whole bunch of other stuff. I got insomnia again too. So yeah… that’s all catching up to me. I don’t look it, but I’m old now… lulz… So I’m gonna take a couple of days to chill and recharge. Cuz my brain is like out of it lolol If I don’t recharge well enough, I’ll probably skip posting next week~ Thank you for your patience and understanding~ Y’all can still catch me on my socials and Discord though!~ Anyway… Stay safe, take care, and have a wonderful day!~ Also, HAPPY MID-AUTUMN FESTIVAL to many of my fellow Asian friends~

Stay safe and healthy out there, y’all.


AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We are all too familiar with the racism that we, our friends, and family have faced on a daily basis. Every life is precious. However, as BIPOC, we also recognize that black people are a group of people that face extreme racism and at a higher risk for their safety. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation and understanding. Make sure to have those conversations. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

You can also check out the following:


As an Asian-American, racism, xenophobia, and hate crimes against AAPI isn’t new. It’s always been around. Unfortunately, misinformation and the pandemic has caused an insane surge in racism and xenophobia. There has also been an insane rise in hate crimes. More recently, we’re seeing a surge of hate crimes against the Asian elderly. Particularly in the California and New York areas. Some cases even leading to injuries and even death. The sad thing is that many cases do not get alot of attention, or are just looked passed. It breaks my heart and is cause for concern since it affects our community. Since some of the BAYOG Crew (including myself) are Asian-Americans ourselves, I wanted to use our small platform to help in anyway. Hate, racism, and xenophobia is an ugly thing. We’re friends, in the same community, and against the same social injustices. So be kind and let’s fight these things together.

You can also check the following for more information, ways to help, & to donate:

Please report hate crimes at Stop AAPI Hate:

You can see if your community has a volunteer chaperone or neighborhood watch/patrol program.
Some examples:

Volunteer at any other organizations that provide assistance to Asian-Americans; Particularly the elderly.
Some examples:

  • Heart of Dinner @ NYC, New York|
    An organization that supports local businesses and provides meals and care packages to the Asian elderly in NYC.
