Today is SM Station day again, and this time around SM released a video by Yoon Mi Rae, who I didn't actually know is under SM Entertainment. The song is called “Because of You”. I don't know much about Yoon Mi Rae. She released a song not too long ago that I really liked, but I don't remember the title or anything like that. The thumbnail for this video is a picture of her singing with headphones on, so I'm thinking this is an in-studio live performance, meaning, that the song is studio recorded, but the video will just be her performing it in the studio as if she were recording it.
The music video was pretty much as I predicted. It was their recording process including the orchestra they brought in and shots of webchats and practice sessions. The video wasn't anything to write home about, but it seemed to have a sort of sepia tint to it, not too much, but it was definitely there. Also the video had a film grain filter on different scenes to make the process seem like a memory. I like that aspect, but honestly nothing special about this video.
The song was alright. I wasn't super impressed with it, but it was good. Yoon Mi Rae has powerful vocals that kill at times, and this time was no exception, however, I felt like this song has been done before. And what I mean by that is that it's a ballad-type song with an orchestra and a huge swell towards the end. I would like to see more creative style ballads. Like a guitar and piano ballad would be cool or a violin and guitar. Anyway, the song was good, but it wasn't amazing.
That's my review of Yoon Mi Rae's song “Because of You”. Look forward to Mamamoo's newest video in review form. Did you like this song? What did you like or enjoy about it? Thanks for the support!
