ASTRO sings to their 'Baby' in new mini album 'Dream Part 01'

ASTRO has dropped their 4th mini album 'Dream Part. 01'.

The title song to the mini album is "Baby", a tropic house genre that shows ASTRO's characteristic brightness perfectly. The MV is a colorful, dreamy one to match their album title, where the boys sell dreams.

[MV & Album Review] ASTRO -- 'Dream Part.01'

Following up their successful 'Winter Dream' album, ASTRO is primed for a summer comeback with 'Dream Part.01!' There's eight fresh tracks on this EP, including the title track "Baby."

Starting with a synth booping happily, "Dreams Come True" is a club-banger, although done in a completely happy upbeat style, rather than anything forceful. The boys voices come through clearly on this one, particularly Moonbin's, though I love JinJin's raps on the track too. The song almost has a cute feel to it, like you can almost see ASTRO making heart signs and such while performing it.
