Dolla – Malay and Indonesian

Yay, my posts have motivated at least one person, mission accomplished! πŸ™‚

Today Youtube suggested a video discussing whether this new group from Malaysia is similar to Blackpink from Korea.

I went to check them out and I gotta say – they are better than Blackpink!!! The song is really catchy and powerful and I think I listened to it at least 10 times today. I also really like how the language sounds, something completely new and different from K-pop (the comment section agrees with me).

Since I’m learning Indonesian, I got curious how much of this song is similar with the language I’m learning, so I searched it up. To be honest, I didn’t get an exact answer, so I emailed the lyrics to our Indonesian teacher (luckily, she’s also a young girl) asking her about this. Let’s see what she replies πŸ™‚

In any case, this definitely gave me a much needed boost for learning Indonesian, until now I was learning it simply because the Indonesian embassy offered a free course, but now I’m starting to build emotional connections as well, which is great πŸ™‚
