    Just a week after the release of her seventh mini album, I'm Not Cool, HyunA is back with a brand-new music video for her song "Good Girl"! The electronic pop song encourages listeners to be their true, unique selves instead of pretending to be a ~good girl~ just to appease others.

    "I'm not that good girl, that good girl, I do what I like. I look good in everything, this is the original me," she sings. "Won't be that good girl, that good girl that everyone likes. What's so wrong with being myself?"

    This week also saw the release of Kim Myung-soo (aka L)'s "Memory," CIX's "Cinema," Aespa's "Forever," and (G)I-dle's remix of "HWAA" with Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, so be sure to check those out, too! 🤩
