NewJeans is HYBE’s newest girl group. Debuting under the ADOR sub-label, the group became a hot topic for their fresh (some say too fresh) look and throwback R&B sound.

The first song released from their debut EP is a mid-tempo R&B song called Attention. This track will bring back fond memories for those who recall when this style of R&B dominated the genre in the 90s and early 2000s.

With Attention being a call back to the style of music of the formative days of my teenage years, I instantly took a liking to it. Its minimalist production style left a lot of options open when stripping the track to its separate elements.

After thinking about what to do for my interpretation, I decided to do two remixes. This version sticks closely to what makes the original so great. I only added a bit of a groove in the beat to make it a little more dance floor friendly.

When I get to the second remix of Attention, I will probably try reinventing the wheel. But for this one? I felt it was better to go with what makes the song unique and not lose those who love it the way it is.
