Sistar's Hyolyn and Dasom drop addictive ‘Summer or Summer' single, Star1s want group comeback
Hyolyn and Dasom, both members of popular K-pop group Sistar, came together for their charity single, 'Summer or Summer.' Sistar was formed in 2010 and debuted in 2011 with two other members Bora and Soyou under the agency, Starship Entertainment. In May of 2017, it was announced that Sistar would disband. All the members went on with their solo careers in acting as well as music in the years to follow.
Members of Sistar, being one of the most popular second generation girl groups, were labeled the "summer queens." Now, Hyolyn and Dasom have collaborated for VIVO’s ‘How To Spend 2021 Well’, a music project with all its proceeds to be donated to those struggling because of the ongoing pandemic. With their sudden collaboration, Hyolyn and Dasom have ignited the hopes of Star1s who want to see the group come together again despite their solo ventures.
Hyolyn and Dasom reclaim their title
The music video for their latest collaborative single, ‘Summer or Summer’ was released on August 10, 2021 at 6 PM KST (5 AM ET) on YouTube globally on Stone Music Entertainment’s official YouTube channel. The single was also released on all major music streaming platforms like Spotify, Apple Music, MelOn and more. The song is composed by Duble Sidekick, EastWest, Woo Tae Woon and White99. Both Hyolyn and Dasom contributed to the lyrics of the song with support from Woo Tae Woon.
'Saving this year's summer'
‘Summer or Summer’ is a refreshing dance track which one would ideally play on a hot summer day at a pool party. It could also replace your perfect summer ride song. Calling fans to go out of their city lives, near the ocean and have fun with their friends, Hyolyn and Dasom attempt to make fans feel good about summer. This song has smooth and sultry undertones to it which could easily become a song one sings to confess one’s feelings. Fans have claimed to have experienced a one-of-a-kind rap in the single, one that they claim to be unlike that of any other Sistar’s older songs.
