In our first track review of the semester, WXCU Pop Music Director Cameron Ferguson takes a look at K-Pop superstar’s RED VELVET’s newest single!
Red Velvet. Red for strong and elegant and Velvet for soft and feminine. These two forces combine to create the comebacks and concepts of the South Korean girl group Red Velvet. Their latest single is a upbeat Pop-Funk song titled “Rookie”. The music video had 1 million views by mid day of its release. That number jumped to over 9 million 6 days after. My favorite part of this song are all the little parts that jump out after another listen. There is a screaming background vocal at :36 that oddly fits into the song very well.
At 1:31 there is an amazing bass guitar part that is hard to notice if you focus on the vocals. Rookie is an example of a song that can be looped and get better every time.
