As the Pinoy Pop scene continues to evolve and diversify, more and more local talents brimming with passion and creativity are striving to make a name for themselves and are worthy of attention and support. Just like the four-piece girl group DIONE, who might be still rookies in the game but are already killing it with their music, performances, and visuals. If you need a bit of an introduction, then let it be their latest comeback offering, Break You Down.
YOU CANNOT BRING ME DOWN
When DIONE made their debut early last year under the Seoul-based music label FirstOne Entertainment, it’s clear that the girls were here to stay and slay. In their debut pop banger Bling Bling, Joyden, Clara, Ella, and DK all brought their A-game with their energy, moves, beats, attitude, and their music video that’s bursting with colors, vivacity, and verve. Almost a year later, with Bling Bling now viewed over a million times, DIONE is back with more fire (literally and figuratively) than ever.
On the night April 12, 2023, Talies’ (DIONE’s fandom) long wait for a comeback was finally over as their mains dropped the music video for Break You Down, a month after the lyric video was released. And it sure is worth the wait as DIONE did not hold back with their latest offering where they’re feistier and braver than ever. While Bling Bling is about pursuing one’s dreams despite life’s problems, DIONE takes the same optimism and adds a much bolder attitude and fiercer oomph into Break You Down.
“You tryna break my crown / I’ll mark a smile on your face / Before I break you down.” Composed by South Korean collaborators CiELO, ONE.KI, and DIONE themselves, Break You Down is an upbeat bop that lyrically conveys how the girls are in control of their own destinies and that no one can ever stop them, as they should. And this other level of confidence and courage are front and center in the visuals as the girls unapologetically smash a luxury car and just embody fearlessness in every shot.
Apart from the catchy beats and literally fiery visuals, the Break You Down M/V (which has now been viewed over 100 thousand times) also finds Joyden, Clara, Ella, and DK acing their blazing choreography alongside their no-ordinary backup dancers, the proudly Pinoy dance crew, Junior New System. And just like the lyrics of their new music, you might need your double coz DIONE brings you a satisfying kind of trouble with their comeback. One that excites you about what they’ll serve us next. But for now, it looks like nobody’s gonna break their crown soon.
