When I Grow Up



When I Grow Up is the third and final studio album by Korean-Pop girl group, Mi•Mi. The record was released on January 25th, 2021 by Five Pesky Kids and SM Entertainment with additional support from Dahlhouse Entertainment. The project comes after a lengthy 6 year legal battle with Mi•Mi's Korean label, SM Entertainment. The album was initially planned to be the follow up for He Say She Say, the album that solidified Mi•Mi household name. However, the album was pushed back for years after the success of the group sparked disagreements between the label and the artists, a 3-year tour sitting at the center of the debacle. In 2020, the courts sided with Mi•Mi and it was soon announced that the final album would see the light of day.

When they were just 12 years old, all 4 girls auditioned for a chance to sign on with SM Entertainment under a development deal and this led to the formation of the girl group as we know it. In 2013, Mi•Mi released their debut top 10 album In Our Youth. In 2015, He Say She Say was released, the sophomore album becoming the group's first #1 album. In the fall of 2016, Mi•Mi took to tumblr to leak a song titled "0923", confirming that they were already working on a new album. Many speculated about the song's meaning, the lyric's criticising their experience with labels at such an early age. The speculation didn't last for long, Mi•Mi and their team annoincing that they were taking legal actions against SM Entertainment just weeks later.

After declaring legal war on SM Entertainment with their standalone M&M's Chocolate funded single, "Melt", Mi•Mi was relatively quiet for a year and a half while on tour, leaving fans worried that they were disbanding soon. wiht no hopes of an album ever coming out. As stated by insiders, "When I Grow Up" was finished and sent out to be approved in January 2016, but SM Entertainment found it to be extremely disrespectful towards their label. In retaliation, rapper Miki Lee lost her patience and leaked her very own mixtape, How To Get 'Em Heated. No one knows just how disrespectful the original version of "When I Grow Up" might have been towards SM Entertainment but it's safe to say, Miki's mixtape was way worse, with rap lyrics that called them out by name like, "Listen.. M to the I-M-I/Who SM gon' make a slave? Not I!"

In April of 2017, Mi•Mi was forced to release The Show Must Go On as the lead single from When I Grow Up. The single does not appear on the final cut of the album. At the time, SM Entertainment had tried to compromise with the girl group by placing racy love songs on When I Grow Up. No songs about love appear on the album. In the same vein, Mi•Mi could not include songs from Miki's mixtape, How To Get 'Em Heated, nor could they put M&M promotional single, Melt, on the project. Still, Mi•Mi had the upperhand in the negotiations and the record stands as the first project where the girls of Mi•Mi maintained full control over the release of their album.

Many songs on the album were written all the way back in 2015, surviving years of tracklist revisions. Those tracks include "Bigger", a cut from the Consequences OST, as well as "First Step", "Green Mile" and the title track, "When I Grow Up". These songs have a soft starry feel to them, with alternatively electronic R&B production that creates a dreamy atmosphere used to bring in the first half of the album. In 2017, Mi•Mi began to record more rhythmic songs with heavy Funk/Soul influence like, "We Can Be Replaced", "The Runaround", and "Step It Up" . In the following years, newer tracks were made with the hopes of wrapping up the album, some of the most recent being "Be You" and "No Excuses" which serve as songs that bring more life to the record.

We're all so ambitious, up until it's our turn
Prepared to bring change, still haven't even learned
Those words that we moan hold more power than we admit
So quick to step up without getting the gist

It's all so clear when we
sit here silent
Not even trying to hide it
Feeling that if we fought it
No one would buy it


There's only one way to give it your all, your all
One way, to give it your all, your all

That's what you've gotta tell yourself
That's what you've gotta tell yourself
That's what you've gotta tell yourself
There's level to change, just take the first step


Can't suggest too much, you’re scared to get your hopes up
How could you be so hesitant when you've already made your mind up?
There are promises you keep, shouldn't be any different this time
You've made a vow that you will survive

And pave a way for
every person
Through the twists and turns and
Learn stating your worth
Shouldn't be so uncertain


There's only one way to give it your all, your all
One way, to give it your all, your all

That's what you've gotta tell yourself
That's what you've gotta tell yourself
That's what you've gotta tell yourself
There's level to change, just take the first step


Give it your all, your all yeah

Oh, oh
Woah, woah
Woah, woah
Oh, oh
Woah, woah
Woah, woah


Grab your coat, grab your hat
Once you go out for this walk, you can't go back

Get your boots, tie your shoes
Got some people to step on, got some stumbling to do

You're overdressed, you talk too much
They don't come to see you think, they come to hear you sing

Belt out your dreams, whisper your fears
Don't let nobody near


Even the stars get shy, under the city lights
The only real way to shine, is showing every bit of strength matters
When you're all made of the same matter


You've been dreaming about these stairs for a while
Now every little step you take is all that counts

Don't forget to smile, walking the green mile
With every celebration comes a new tribulation
Remember, this is only the beginning of your trials

Don't forget to smile, walking the green mile

Oh, oh
Woah, woah
Woah, woah


Sign your name, on the line
Don't forget to cross your t's, ooh you got to dot your i's
There goes the sun, here comes the lights
Learn to take it all in, just a bite


No one's gonna walk you through it
Sometimes you’ve just gotta do it
You'll have to bite more than what you're chewing
Just as long as you stay tru-ue then


You've been dreaming about these stairs for a while
Now every little step you take is all that counts

Don't forget to smile, walking the green mile
With every celebration comes a new tribulation
Remember, this is only the beginning of your trials

Don't forget to smile, walking the green mile

Oh, oh
Woah, woah
Woah, woah
Walking the green mile...
there they go!
Oh, oh
Woah, woah
Woah, woah
Walking the green mile


(Don't forget to smile!)

We end every show with the lights dimmed a structured low
"No one's going solo, this is our heart and soul"
Tell them all to chase a dream, even though ours have become a black hole
Is it so wrong? In a world like this it's normal

How have I sold out when there's still so much left?
There's that voice in my head, yeah
Reminding me that I'm a true artist, I just can't express it

To you, I'm profitable
To them, I'm but a single

I can't win

You've got what you wanted
We're stuck right here, writing out our fears
In songs you'll never give promotion
Staring at the charts and things
Knowing well we can be replaced


Thought it was coooool
The way the stages lit up, the way the arms offered hugs, thought it was all true
With everything perfect and dreams coming to fruition
There was always something I was missing
They say it's always best to know the deal before you get in
I never knew my size before the fittings
Allowed myself to dilute just so I could fit in
Now we're all dressed the same and nothing seems to fit
There's room for all of us, but the unison is crazy
I swear I'm seeing double and the reasoning is far from hazy
They tell me that I'm reaching when I speak out
The only reason why I'm here is cause I reached out
I took the time to build that courage, to define myself
Did it by myself but you swore I wouldn’t have made it without your help
We're generic, we're all just fucking trash
"I've seen it one too many times," but only through the wrong glass


You've got what you wanted
We're stuck right here, writing out our fears
In songs you'll never give promotion
Staring at the charts and things
Knowing well we can be replaced


We end every show, on the same damn note
No harmony
What a shame to waste a talent
Falter dreams over your faulty checks
All this exposure I thought I wanted
To think, I thanked you
for your offering
Not knowing I'd be.. the only, only, only sacrifiiice!

You've got what you wanted (is this what you've wanted?)
We're stuck right here, writing out our fears
In songs you'll never give promotion
Staring at the charts and things
Knowing well we can be replaced

You've got what you wanted
(oh, oh)
We're stuck right here, writing out our fears
In songs you'll never give promotion
Staring at the charts and things
Knowing well we can be replaced

Slowing down, it's easier said than done
I got fear for no one, just scared of missing out on the things that make me human
How do I give in when my time's come?
(Just succumb)
Working so hard, seems chasing fulfillment leads to a lone heart
The closer I get, the more me and the world grows apart
Seems solitude comes with the success I dream of, so what?


(You'll lose it right away)
I'm aware of what they say
(Just thought you should hear that)
(Because when it all goes bad)
There's no turning back, I got it
You can't stop a madman once you start him
But there's a wildfire inside and I'm already out on a limb

(Blah blah blah)
Wasting precious time just staring at the wick
I'm gonna light it!


When this world makes you feel small
You've gotta think big
There's only 2 kind of people on this planet
Those who tag and those who get tagged in
I'm tired of being it
I've gotta think big


Slowing down, I never seem to catch on
Thank me now, later I might be gone
Outgrew my love, I’m reaching out all alone
Can't stop now, no, I won’t stop now
Jungle boy and jungle girl
Keep your standards low and you won’t make it when it all unfurls
See, you can't woo me with guns and pearls
I came to claim the world, gain the whole world


(And lose it right away)
I'm aware of what they say
(Just thought you should hear that)
(Because when it all goes bad)
There's no turning back, I got it
Just because it shines don't mean it's starlit
How many times do I have to say it? I'm more than just a starlet

(Blah blah blah)
Stuck bored of this same old conversation, staler than layered Charlotte
Don't get me started!


When this world makes you feel small (Oooh!)
You've gotta think big (You've gotta think for yourself!)
There's only 2 kind of people on this planet
Those who tag and those who get tagged in
I'm tired of being it
I've gotta think big


Ooh, ooh, ooh, oh...I'm in for a penny, I'm in for a pound
They say what goes around comes around
This time, I'm throwing my weight around
This time, I'll give
you the runaround

When this world makes you feel small
You've gotta think big
There's only 2 kind of people on this planet
Those who tag and those who get tagged in
I'm tired of being it
I’ve got to think big

Consequences Soundtrack wrote:
Bigger is a track originaly featured on the original soundtrack of the hit TV-show, Consequences. It is a mid-tempo pop driven ballad that contains dark, chilling, and tense elements within its production. The song consists of guitars (all played by inZane), piano (played by FancyN) and synths which play over a pulsing bass line and amazing vocals from the K-pop girl group, Mi•Mi. The single was written for the popular HBO series Consequences in the key of F# minor, in common time, with a tempo of 83 beats per minute. The vocal range of the group spans from F♯3 to C5 as they deliver vocals full of emotion, perfectly showcasing their fears and struggles.

Lyrically, Bigger is about a "little girl" throwing herself out into the big blue world, finding that she's too 'small' to defend herself. Just like in Consequences, the "little girl" always finds herself getting hurt despite the scenario because she always ends up fighting an entity that is over her head and bigger than her. Being a group that used to be known for their innocence and have expressed their fear of fame in their previous albums, "In Our Youth" and "He Say She Say", they fit the theme of the song like a glove.

Knew yourself, knew your worth
Learned what they like and why it worked

Just to mistake lands mines for fireworks
Burned out your tires from these twists and turns

You're going nowhere, tracking dirt
Took on the world, and it cost you the earth

You're just a little girl..spinning

Who's gon' stop these carousels?
Yelling for help but the world's still spinning
You can only go so far by just thinking for yourself
If only you were bigger

It took a while, to get you to smile
A while to build you up, even still, you're so fragile

Thought you were grown, just goes to show
When you make the wrong move, it all goes wrong


Cause you're just a little girl..spinning
Who's gon' stop these carousels?

Yelling for help but the world's still spinning
You can only go so far thinking for yourself
If only you were bigger!

Bigger in body and mind!
If you were just bigger in their eyes, you wouldn't be victimized!
You wouldn't even make these same mistakes
If you were bigger, you'd know to when to throw your weight

But you're just a little girl..spinning!

Who's gon' stop these carousels?
Yelling for help but the world's still spinning
You can only go so far thinking for yourself

You're just a little girl..spinning
Who's gon' stop these carousels?
Yelling for help but the world's still spinning
You can only go so far by just thinking for yourself

If only you were bigger

When I grow up I'll learn how to sing
Gonna change the world with my melodies
Teach myself to love myself
Do all I can without any help

When I grow up I'll use my voice
Speak up for myself even when I'm hoarse
Teach the world to love 'cause that's all we have
Smile looking forward, smile looking back


[a light piano jingle leads up to the second half of the song]




It's never too late to flip the page and write your own story
Count all the days, still I can't wait to see myself in all my glory

Glow's already showing, I'm still growing and I just know my future's bright
When I fall, I get up and get back on track right on time


I know when I grow up!
I'll be just the same, big heart, bigger dreams
I know when I grow up!
I'll always remain, fear can't chase me away

While you're still young!
Write all your best songs!
Make them sing along!
Let no one stand in your way!
It's all in your mindset, not your age!
Always prepared for the next stage!
I know what I'll be when I grow up!

So you're used to backing down
Never knew which way was up
When they told you to jump you jumped
But now you're out of luck
Here, you've gotta move on your own
Sometimes a need is a want
Just lift that joint babe
Let your big toe point


(You put your right foot in)
They say take your time but the time has long been lost
(You put your right foot out)
Uh, strut with the boss!
(You put your left foot in)
When you fall you better get back up on your feet
Gotta shake it shake it shake it, I know that you'll make it
Just do it like Mi•Mi


Step it up
I said you gotta step it up
Don't you know how to step it up?
Oooh!

Step by step now!
Come on, step by step now!
Step by step now!
Come on, step by step now!

So you're used to game time
Only on the sidelines
I remember feeling all the energy
Not being able to make it mine
It's no doubt we're the same
I see myself in your face
You gotta put your foot down, step out of your frame
Only the suckers get stuck in a lane


(You put your right foot in)
They say take your time but the time has long been lost
(You put your right foot out)
Uh, strut with the boss!
(You put your left foot in)
When you fall you better get back up on your feet
Gotta shake it shake it shake it, I know that you'll make it
Just do it like Mi•Mi


Step it up
I said you gotta step it up
Don't you know how to step it up?
Oooh!

Step by step now!
Come on, step by step now!
Step by step now!
Come on, step by step now!

I like this!
Ooh, hey!
Look'a here, bring it on!


I can't be held down
You can't make me run away
I put my foot down
Learn to lead my own parade
We can’t be silenced, ignored, or swayed
Women like Mi•Mi don’t play

Do one thing for me
I better get
(PAID!) Hey!
You BETTER have my pay!

You know we gonna step it up
Now, you gotta step it up
Don't you know how to step it up?
Oooh!


Strut with the boss, babe
Strut with the boss, babe
Strut with the boss, babe
Strut with the boss, babe

WE DONT MAKE EXCUSES
Fresh out of court
My lawyers ballin, they fresh off the courts
Label been stallin, they owe me Dior
We beat the case, I'm richer than before
Hmm, bored, I'll buy my own island!
No one allowed on the jet 'cause I'm private
Got all my girls on a yacht, we some pirates
Took a hot girl vacay, never hiding

WE DONT MAKE EXCUSES, we just make music
We just pulled the album out the vault, it's exclusive
Everything I said I'ma do, I'ma do it!
Leave my doubters with the stuck face, looking foolish
Party can't start til my girls all here
My conscious never clear til my check's all clear
I make up for lost time, I know what they wanna hear
Come back with a bang, leave em singing all year


We don't make excuses, we really do this
We look evil in the eye and then pursue it
We don't make excuses, we really do this
We look evil in the eye and then pursue it

WE DONT MAKE EXCUSES

Fresh out the stu'
This album got me feeling fresher than you
A bitch can't get me hot, I'm too cool
Taking a stand against me? You fool!
You can tell I'm a boss cus my outfit really cost
She just bought the Fendi that they sent me when it dropped
Just look at me! Cream of the crop
No excuses, I get it done and you get clocked
I was on the road, now I'm go
Now I'm on call
Stand with my girls at war or at the mall
Mi•Mi never fall
End it on a good note and they can't say you fell off
Ran it together, now we running wild
I feel sorry for you if Mi•Mi ain't your style
I'm not that humble, I blow like a cow
And my haters can blow me, toodles for now!


We don't make excuses, we really do this
We look evil in the eye and then pursue it
We don't make excuses, we really do this
We look evil in the eye and then pursue it

WE DONT MAKE EXCUSES

Single: Be You ft. iCandy
Artist: Mi•Mi
Label: Five Pesky Kids, SM Entertainment, Dahlhouse Entertainment, Big Diamond Records
Release Date: January 22nd, 2021
Genre: K-pop
Written by: Geum Namae, "Jasmine" of iCandy
Produced by: GogoGigi, Flame1&2
Length: 3:14


Be You is the collaboration between K-Pop girl group Mi•Mi and newer K-Pop girl group iCandy, serving as the lead single from Mi•Mi's third and final studio album, When I Grow Up. Apart of a 4 song collection on the album where each member of the group takes the lead and reintroduces themselves as a solo act, Be You is Mae's introduction. One of the elss popular members of the group, Mae is astrong song-writer who's soft sound preserves the K-Pop in Mi•Mi's westernized music. Produced by newer producer, Gogogigi, and older production duo, Flame1&2, the song was released with the album on January 25th 2021 and impacted US radio on the same day. Be You is a fast-tempo K-pop song with a heavy electronic influence. One of the most playful and pure K-pop songs the girls have released in a while, Mi•Mi takes the time out to remind the world how important it is to honor one's true colors.

“When I was told to make a song for the album that was purely about me, I couldn't help but put together my dream K-pop girl group collaboartion. [laughs] There weren't always a lot of Korean Pop girl groups around in the western market but now that there are, I just had to get one on a song.” Mae says, explaining why she chose iCandy as the first and only K-Pop group Mi•Mi will ever collaborate with. "I've had my eyes on iCandy ever since they came out and I just wanted them to know how much Mi•Mi loves them. They have our blessing, we are truly passing our torch to them and we're so excited to see what they have to bring to this world."

Mean words can't bring me down, I just ignore it (That's right!)
You've got to love the way you are, always stand by your side

All of my angels
Michael and Gabriel
Some I can't even name
Sing in my left ear
Guide me through all fear
See that I survive this plane
Know you're protected
Through all rejection
Somebody's making a way
Never have to settle
Your fire melts metal
And chains were meant to break


Flap flap flap my wings
I'm a bird set free
Wind's just right for me
I trace the clouds when I flee


Break out of your cage
Break out of your cage

When the world's your stage, some places you can't stay
Living in the dark, you deserve to see the day
when you..
Break out of your cage

It's time to break out

No one can scare me
I've seen some scary
Today, I still stand
Many have left me
My heart is heavy
Tell me you'll take my hand
I'll never leave you
We'll always be two
Take you everywhere I can
No need to be so fixed
Love melts the resistance
You pick where we land


Flap flap flap my wings
I'm a bird set free
Wind's just right for me
I trace the clouds when I flee


Break out of your cage
Break out of your cage

When the world's your stage, some places you can't stay
Living in the dark, you deserve to see the day
when you..
Break out of your cage

Break out of your cage
Break out of your cage
Break out of your cage

Break out of your cage
Break out of your cage
Break out of your cage
Break out of your cage

It's time to
The time has come
Its time to
It's time to break out
It's time to
It's time to....

Used to dream about how we'd be real big
Topping charts and selling out the Garden
Bunch of girls taking over hand in hand

Didn't take long
Even now, we hold the same intentions
Split up to fulfill our one true mission
4 bad girls with good reputations

Not for long

'Til infinity and beyond
Way after they stop buying our songs
I'm talking when even the Sun can't carry on

Catch me before the next dawn

I'll be standing right here with nothing but my soul to bare
We'll catch up on a lifetime with a game of truth or dare
Couldn't always be there, you probably think I never cared
I've always cared
And that's forever
Forever ever

Forever ever

Used to get so mad when no one called back
Nowadays we've learned so much from that
Treating every conversation like it's our last

Make it extra long

'Til infinity and back
Way after they stop playing our tracks
I'm talking when the trees wither up and Earth cracks

Catch me before it all grows back

I'll be standing right here with nothing but my soul to bare
We'll catch up on a lifetime with a game of truth or dare
Couldn't always be there, you probably think I never cared
I've always cared
And that's forever
I'll be standing right here with nothing but my soul to bare
We'll catch up on a lifetime with a game of truth or dare
Couldn't always be there, you probably think I never cared
I've always cared
And that's forever
Forever ever
Forever ever



(starts at 2:35)

[Old audio of Mi•Mi in the studio with Rum & Coke, the writers of the song. They are showing the Korean group the track “Ms Jackson” by Outkast for the first time. This is the song that inspired the hook. Both Rum & Coke rap their hearts out to the song from Outkast who the duo lists as their biggest influence. This moment is full circle because Rum & Coke is also the duo that helped Mi•Mi write, arrange and produce all of their songs.]

Rum & Coke: ...On the oak tree, I hope we feel like this for eva! For eva? For eva-EVA??

Everybody: FAH EVA EVA!

[All 6 girls break out into uncontrollable laughter. The song comes back in]


I'll be standing right here with nothing but my soul to bare
We'll catch up on a lifetime with a game of truth or dare
Couldn't always be there, you probably think I never cared

We'll catch up on a lifetime with a game of truth or dare
Couldn't always be there, you probably think I never cared
I've always cared
And that's forever

Forever ever

(Forever never seems that long until you’re grown...)

Billy: Bittersweet that this album is finally out. It's a wonderful record and triumph after all of the pushbacks the group has endured. The amount of strongly worded phone calls and emails I've had with that other company. Trash. Bullying works though! Fucking amazing album and I'm real happy it has finally seen the light of day. It's rather sad to see the end of the project but I'm sure all you ladies will go on to bigger and brighter things. It has been a pleasure having you all at Pesky.

OOC: Your first album in 84 years OMG!! It's great to see you back and also completing older projects. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing something finally completed triumphantly! Honestly forgot just HOW good of a writer you are. Your lyrics are very concise and pack a punch. Very intelligent while still having a fun, poppy sensibility to them. This album honestly looks like it'd be something I'd purchase in real life. You did that! Can't wait to see other project resurface and flourish again in 2021!

Miki Lee: Oh my god, please stop. It's not like we're dead.

Daena: We'll all still be around! Right, Mae?

Mae: Don't do this!! I'm working on solo music too, I promise.

Miki Lee: Well, at least she can live off of our royalties forever. Don't feel too bad, Daena.

Daena: *hangs her head in sorrow* I just dont want my sister to go out like this. Our family is supposed to be booked not unemployed! Please please baby jesus, plant some inspo in her head for a solo album. I'm begging you.

Misu: *rubs her back* That's right baby, just pray on it. It's gonna take a miracle.

Tyler: Who knew Miki had some bars on her she is really good.

Chris: umm so I was looking through the notes and I was supposed to get a shout-out in one of these songs and I thought there was going to be chairs and sexy time music but the second song was more depressing than mood setting. Don't think I forgot, sexy passion time. the album was great but it seemed like people went in and thought "You know what let's hit them with some adult serious shit." shame on you guys for having to turn on my brain to actually listen to content and meaning.

David and Rose do a quick Instagram direct to say to some followers and after speaking of some Jollies' daily situations, covid and some future plans, they get to the questions part.
One asks this.


Did you hear Mi•Mi's new album

David: Mi•Mi? Oh yeah, I did. I mean I'm not very much into RnB, it's not my thing but they are so talented. I especially like the second part of their album, I like how it makes you dance and there's this sexy song... 'Step It Up'

Rose: I love it! I don't know Davey, the first part is soo calming and gets me thinking. I thought you liked 'We Can Be Replaced'? (Smiles)

David: Ohh right, yeah, that song has such a sexy sax... Saxophone, don't misunderstand my word sounds hey. (Rose giggles) Anyway yeah I hope they release 'Step It Up' or 'No Excuses' as singles they're sassy.
