(G)I-DLE has always made empowering music with profound messages hidden within their lyrics. The group’s main objective is to become a genreless act that continues to grow over time. And the girl’s latest project [I NEVER DIE] is a testament to their growth.
“[I NEVER DIE] is an album that captures (G)I-DLE’s feelings and thoughts about what is given to them and all prejudices of the world. (G)I-DLE, who faces the world without backing off, keeps their values, saying, “I’m just me.” In my opinion, “I NEVER DIE” is a transcended body of work that touches on topics very relatable to today’s youth and shows that (G)I-DLE is here to stay, and they will never die.

The album contains nine songs that explore different genres, with “TOMBOY” being the lead single. The title track exudes confidence as they sing lines like “I’m not a doll” and “Just me I-DLE.” These lyrics express their desire to be independent figures who carve out their own life paths. In (G)I-DLE’s showcase hosted by REELS Corporation, they went more in-depth with the meaning behind “TOMBOY.”
Soyeon: This song shows (G)I-DLE’s confident attitude. ‘I’m not a doll, just me (G)I-DLE’ The direct lyrics tell the message that I’m just me and nothing can restrict us.
They also describe the meaning of the MV, which was rumored to have a noir concept. Miyeon confidently answered, “It’s not about a girl who’s crying about love. Our music video is about a rebellious, bold woman who can’t be hurt by anything.” (G)I-DLE also talked about how this album was a labor of love and that they hope that it fills the void left by their one-year absence.
