San E - BAD YEAR (album cover)

San E releases single ‘BAD YEAR’

In Music Release, Singles by Lena

San E has released the digital single ‘나쁜X (BAD YEAR)‘ on November 24.

Living up to his title of ‘rap genius’, San E wraps his thoughts about the current political situation in a break-up song.
Here is a translation of part of the lyrics:

Sigh…hey… [pun: in Korean these two syllables can also mean ‘resign’], did I trust in you / for this? / Every time you promised something / you went back on your word. Change your repertoire! / To top it off, it turns out that / there was another guy by your side / You come back from kissing him / and make excuses with your dirty tongue / You’re nothing but a puppet / I’m saying you were just a marionette

Read our interpretation of the lyrics here.

Also note that the track’s title is a pun on the word ‘년’ which can mean both ‘year’ and ‘b*tch’, giving the title the underlying meaning of ‘bad b*tch’.
After KittiB, San E is the second Brand New Music artist to officially release a track about Choi Soon-sil Gate.
