Expectations for Red Velvet’s upcoming mini-album Queendom are already through the roof.
Queendom, scheduled to be released on the 16th, contains a total of 6 tracks, including the title song “Queendom.” From pop-dance and electro-punk to R&B ballad, Red Velvet will boast their “irreplaceable” charm.
Let’s look at the 3 reasons that make us so anxious for Queendom.
#Comeback as a whole group
The last time Red Velvet released an album as a whole group was about a year and 8 months ago. In December 2019, they dropped The ReVe Festival’ Finale.
Also, multiple hit-makers have teamed up for this new smash: composers KENZIE and minGtion, producers Moonshine and Andreas Oberg, and lyricists Jo Yoon Kyung and Lee Seuran.
#The return of “Summer Queen”
Previously, Red Velvet made back-to-back hits with “Red Flavor,” “Power Up,” and “Umpah Umpah.” Soon, the group proved that “summer” equals “Red Velvet,” becoming the next “Summer Queen” of K-pop.
Since all summer-related playlists include Red Velvet’s tracks, their upcoming summer comeback is at the center of attention. The new title track “Queendom” is a pop dance song with lyrics that conveys positive messages.
#The new concept of “Concept Queen”
Since Red Velvet’s comeback was officialized, SM has released teaser images of Red Velvet. First, there is the colorful “ReVe” concept and the much more comfortable “Homecoming” concept. Then there’s the “Journey” concept that shows members’ journey of becoming the “Queen” and lastly, the “Carnival” concept. The special storytelling of these images is heightening the comeback fever.
The new image of “Concept Queen” Red Velvet for this new album will, for sure, catch the fans’ ears and eyes.
