Okay, so Taemin of SHINee is back again with his second video release of this year. This is Taemin – Press Your Number. I've already listened to the entire album except this song. I've been waiting all day for this. Believe me, I was jamming out to Soldier, One by One and Hypnosis at 8:30 this morning. So I have definitely been waiting for this moment. I put off listening to this song to give me a fresh perspective on watching it. I didn't want to taint anything by listening to the song beforehand. I guess this is it!
The music video was very artistic. There were tons of symbolism in there that I can't name all of them. A few were the blue roses, the cards, the tree, and of course the gas and lighter at the end. The video, while strange, doesn't seem very far off from SHINee especially with View last year. View was a crazy weird video. This video seemed to express the emotional struggle of someone having done something bad in the past and regretting it. In the video, Taemin holds a girl up at a convenient store and robs her. He and his friends go and celebrate their new earnings, but not before the cops show up. Then I think Taemin crashes his car trying to get away. That's where he remembers everything he's done and sets fire to his car to try to erase the memories he has.
The song is bomb. This album is gold and everything about it is just phenomenal. The song definitely sounds like something that Bruno Mars would produce. It has that smooth jazz style underlying the fullness of the song. While it felt like Bruno Mars, it definitely felt like something SHINee would have done, especially in the more recent years. So I'm glad that those two paired up. It's a great match. Also, Taemin's dance moves are yet again on fire. And that crotch grab!
Anyway, that's my music video review for Taemin's Press Your Number. I loved it and can't wait to binge this entire album over the next little while. Did you like it? What was your favorite part of the song/video? Do you think that Taemin/SHINee and Bruno Mars should partner up again in the future? Leave your comments below. I'd love to hear from you.
