I apologize beforehand for my poor writing skills. My computer crashed last night and hasn’t been recovered yet, so I’m typing this all on my tablet. Many of you know that tablet writing is not the most enjoyable. However, I’m very excited for this because it is my girls, Red Velvet with their recent comeback “Rookie”. I haven’t listened to any of the teasers or checked out anything regarding this release because I want the moment I watch it to be a complete surprise.
I have no idea what I just watched. It looked like “Happiness” mixed with “One of These Nights” mixed with “Mr. Ambiguous” mixed with a meth trip. The concept of the video seemed to be “what’s behind that door” as well as puppeteering. Seulgi seemed to control everything and most of the video seemed to be through her eyes. What that means, I’m not sure, but I love me some Seulgi. The video was very colorful and extremely abstract. This is the purpose Red Velvet has on the earth.
I like the song and I’m sure I’ll come to like it more, but it is not necessarily my favorite Red Velvet song. It seems like SM is sticking with this quirky hip hop vibe for Red Velvet. Like I said though, this isn’t a terrible song but it seems like Red Velvet is becoming a hip hop version of f(x) and f(x) is becoming just EDM. The overall tone of the song was upbeat with a flair of funk intertwined in each beat. I think that’s the reason I like it. If it were lacking the funk, I would almost guaranteed not like this song, but because it has that funk aspect, I can dig it and will probably get more into it as time goes by.
This has been my review of “Rookie” by Red Velvet. The girls are back! I hope you enjoyed my review and will give me some love by liking and sharing this post on social media. Please also comment your thoughts below. Thank you guys for the support even in this difficult time where I’m trying to revive my computer. I’ll hopefully see ya in the next one.
