Girls of I.O.I (Ideal of Idol) formed by the popular audition variety show “Produce 101” have finally debuted under YMC Entertainment.
On May 4th, the I.O.I girls released their first mini-album ‘Chrysalis’ and MV titled Dream Girls co-written by singer-songwriter-producer Famousbro and composer Paul, with rap lyrics by members Lim Na-young and Choi Yoo-jung.
Dream Girls is a peppy trap pop dance track that signifies a motivational message of cherishing and following your dream, without giving up. That’s quite spot on considering the journey of these girls from trainees to their final debut. Take a look at the MV below.
The album not just showcases individual charms and dreams of these girls but also showcases their participation in deciding on tracks, writing rap lyrics and helping overall to produce the album with their opinions. I.O.I mini-album shall contain four songs including I.O.I (Intro), Dream Girls (title track), Doo-Wap and Knock Knock Knock. It shall also contain I.O.I’s version of special tracks Pick Me, Crush and When the Cherry Blossoms Fade.
