“I want that remix, ain’t no serafim” — Did (G)I-DLE throw shade at LE SSERAFIM in their new song?

K-Pop fans worldwide are buzzing about a potential feud between two popular girl groups, (G)I-DLE and LE SSERAFIM.

The controversy centers on lyrics in (G)I-DLE‘s latest English mini album, HEAT. But is there any truth to these claims?

When (G)I-DLE dropped their title track, “I Want That,” some fans thought they heard a dig at LE SSERAFIM.

This misunderstanding stemmed from a misheard lyric in the chorus, with people thinking it said, “I want that remix, ain’t no serafim.”

However, it was later clarified to be “I want that, oui, merci, no, c’est la vie.” So, how did this connection between the lyrics and the groups emerge?

Firstly, some fans pointed out similarities between “I Want That” and LE SSERAFIM‘s track “Eve, Psyche, and The Bluebeard’s Wife.”

Given that LE SSERAFIM‘s song made waves earlier in the year, it’s not unreasonable for fans to draw comparisons between two songs with a similar vibe and genre. But drawing inspiration from popular trends is a common practice in the music industry.

Another reason for the speculation may be Source Music‘s promotional strategies for LE SSERAFIM. Even though “Eve, Psyche, and The Bluebeard’s Wife” was a B-side track, it gained significant attention.

To capitalize on its unexpected popularity, Source Music released a series of remixes with well-known international artists like Upsahl, Rina Sawayama, and even Demi Lovato, all within a month.

This strategic promotion might have led fans to find the misheard lyrics amusing and claim they were a “diss.”

Some fans are taking the supposed diss lightly, suggesting that the resemblance in the lyrics is just a playful joke since they sound alike.

Misinterpreting lyrics or blowing things out of proportion is not uncommon among fans.

While the music industry does see friendly competition and occasional feuds, it’s essential to ensure that rumors don’t get exaggerated. Misheard lyrics can lead to misunderstandings, as seen in this case with (G)I-DLE and LE SSERAFIM.

With the actual lyrics of “I Want That” by (G)I-DLE now confirmed, it’s safe to say that the claims are untrue for now.
