The popular South Korean girl group recently dropped the follow-up to I Made, their second EP—together with the the music video for title track, Oh My God (released on 6 April 2020; it currently has more than 45 million views on YouTube).
Oh My God is a song about the realisation that trusting oneself is necessary after feelings of denial, confusion, acceptance, and confidence, colliding with reality. One of the most impressive aspects about G(i)-dle is that every comeback of theirs is different. The urban hip hop track succeeds other hits such as Hann, Senorita, Lion, and Uh-Oh.
