Yes but unfortunately BoA isn't helping herself :/
Don't get me wrong, I love Kiss My Lips and all but it doesn't show any of her abilities. The coreography is easy like all the girlgroups and she doesn't show any of her vocal skills. That's why some knetizens said that she "downgraded" from Only One.
I know she's not a rookie but she needs to show to the "new" public what she's capable of
Even her Sketchbook performances were lacking compared to 2012's performances :'(
I really have to disagree with your comment about how "Kiss My Lips did not show any of her abilities". The choreography was not the best but its because of the type of song that she made. With this song, she is on point with how she channeled her emotions and singing skills onto the song. Her production skills were top notch in my opinion with the mastering, instrumentals, and her voice production. I asked a lot of my friends who produce music and write lyrics and they told me that she did an outstanding job which I totally agree with. Kiss My Lips was meant to be a sultry and sensual song; and she expressed through her lyrics and vocal channeling perfectly what the song was intentionally made for.
She did show the "new" public her potential, but the music has an 80's American sensual funk sound that of course, is not meant for everyone. Especially the korean public, as you can see with their reaction. Also with regards with her Sketchbook performances, having to be requested to sing the same old hits songs AGAIN & AGAIN is kind of tedious, like "NO.1" and "My Name". As a singer and musician, I would be sick and tired of having to sing the same old hits from 10 years back in every concert or live performance, and variety show. The crowd really needs to move on from the old BoA and see/listen to the BoA that is present now.
