Is there any doubt that there is no one cooler than Zion.T? If you’ve heard or watched the M/V for Zion.T’s track Babay, I doubt you’ll need any further proof that the man is the poster boy for freshness.
In case you have yet to watch the M/V or think you need further proof that this man is real, then I’ll let you in on the plot.
Decked out wearing a skinny pimp suit and geometric steampunk sunglasses Zion.T handles a gold cane to usher us into a marvelous magical museum he’s determined to defile. Zion.T swings between pimp persona and madman as he slays through lyrics meant to whoo some helpless victim to his side.
As madman ‘T is dressed as that evil top hat villain in a cape who ties women to railroad tracks in old-timey movies. Oddly and unexpectedly hot actually.
Then the night guard, played by Gaeko, appears to put a stop to madman Zion.T’s devious plot, but it’s too late. Evil ‘T prevails in his artistic destruction.
The song Babay has a distorted, funk feel similar to something you might hear in a DaftPunk track. Psychedelic church organ meets groove master bass to create a crunchy upbeat backdrop for Zion.T’s particular brand of smooth, funky R&B.
Things heat up again when Gaeko appears on the track to further impress upon us that we are all their bitches so just deal.
The song is a legend among K-pop R&B tracks. Babay peaked at No. 9 on the charts back in 2013 and made Zion.T a household name.
