It's official! She's back! The queen of the world, Kim Taeyeon! And she's back with Dean with her new song “Starlight”! I don't know how to contain my excitement for this event. I've been thinking about it all day at work but I didn't think it would be available already when I got home from work! Super excited for this, will shut up now and watch the video.
The music video for “Starlight” was really beautiful. The colors, the beach, the visuals, it was all phenomenal, but the truly stunning part of this video was of course, Taeyeon. Even more than “I”, I liked this video just because it's Taeyeon in short shorts. There were a lot of interesting things in the music video. Was Taeyeon using a pager? And was that, I think it was a phone booth. The setting was really nice. The beach looked brilliant and super inviting. And even more than that, Taeyeon, her hair, eyes, legs, that throwback vest she wore at the beginning. It was all amazing!
The song felt like an ambient, up tempo ballad song. There was a ton of delay and reverb on the entire track and a kind of subtle filtered out piano beneath the track. Taeyeon's voice was incredible but my one criticism with this song is that it didn't seem like a Taeyeon song, but rather a Dean song featuring Taeyeon. Dean had choruses, a bridge portion while Taeyeon sang the verses and her voice was kind of covered up by Dean's voice in the chorus. It upsets me because I came for Taeyeon, not Dean. Overall though it's an amazing song that I will definitely listen to for a while.
I hope you enjoyed my review of Taeyeon's newest single “Starlight”. There are things I loved and things I wish they would've done differently, but overall I can see why they went the way they did. The song turned out phenomenal and the video was a brilliant masterpiece. Please like, comment, and share this post all over the internet. Thank you all for continuing to support me and look out for the next music video review.
