EXO’s Baekhyun returned to the K-pop scene with his third mini-album Bambi.
It is his first solo album released ten months after Delight, which came out in May last year. Along with the title track “Bambi,” the album includes six colorful R&B tracks under the theme of love. The entire album will let you enjoy Baekhyun’s sweet voice. Baekhyun expressed his personality by actively participating in this album, not only in tracks but also in music videos and styling.
Bambi, released on the 30th, topped the iTunes Top Albums Chart in 56 regions worldwide, including Canada, France, Italy, and Australia. It also took the top spot of China’s QQ Music and Kogou Music’s digital album sales charts. Likewise, QQ Music gave the album “Platinum Album” title for achieving 1 million yuan (about $152,330) in just one hour. It is the first K-pop male singer’s album to secure the feat.
In the online showcase held on the 30th, Baekhyun shared his wish, saying, “30-year-old Baekhyun wants to sing more loose and relaxed songs. I hope you listen to the lyrics and emotions when you hear my songs. I want to be that kind of artist.”
1. Love Scene
It is a medium-tempo R&B song written by singer-songwriter Colde. It catches the ears with the lyrics that talk about the feeling of being in a fateful love like a scene from a romantic movie.
It is an R&B song by famous composers DEEZ and YUNSU, and singer-songwriter SAAY. The emotional guitar melody and Baekhyun’s groovy vocals harmonize well. And the song doubles the charm by portraying mature love stories with fairytale-like expressions.
3. All I Got
It is a heartwarming pop and R&B song by hitmaker KENZIE and new artist Tone Stith. The beautiful lyrics confess the love that turns more completed as time goes.
4. Amusement Park
It is a medium-tempo R&B song that combines sweet piano, guitar melody, and Baekhyun’s soft voice. The feeling for one’s lover is expressed using a variety of scenes from the amusement park. It was released at the end of last year as a single for his fans and received great responses.
The piano riff with a vinyl (LP) texture of this Lo-Fi jazz R&B song evokes nostalgia. He wittily unraveled the desire to show the secretive side only to loved ones with the keyword “Privacy.”
6. Cry For Love
It is a pop R&B song that LDN Noise, a British producing team, participated in. It features the beginning and end of clumsy and painful love in a dramatic monologue. Baekhyun’s delicate singing that expresses sadness maximizes the overall mood of the song.
