Beautiful Stranger (from Electric Shock – 2012)

A unit track from Amber, Luna and Krystal, Beautiful Stranger makes itself known with a dramatic electronic opening before laying down its stomping beat. The song opens with a standout rap courtesy of Amber, followed by a verse that’s just as catchy. The chorus hits with the force of a rock song, though the instrumental employs synth textures instead. It’s a lengthy series of refrains, but they come together to create a nice centerpiece. The production feels a bit more canned than it could have been, but Stranger’s bones are sturdy. At just over four minutes, the track gives itself enough time to fully lean into its theatricality.
