To ensure I have something to post on the blog every week, a random song review will appear at least once every week. After all the laziness, I’ve also finally made a category for this.
I didn’t know what to think about this duo at first. I was just happy that SEVENTEEN is releasing more music. What caught my eye was that Lee Hi was the feature. It’s such a unique combination. And I was not disappointed.
Mingyu and Wonwoo are part of SEVENTEEN’s rap line, so I thought Bittersweet would be a rap-centric song. Boy, was I wrong. Can we talk about the vocals? So smooth. I love the mellow and jazzy vibe. It has a rainy cafe-Esque atmosphere, and I am HERE FOR IT.
I love everything about this. But what surprised me was Lee Hi’s voice. Is it just me, or does her voice sound so different here? It’s higher than her usual low tone, but it fits so well with the song.
I wasn’t expecting this to be so catchy either. The melody isn’t fast enough to be pop, but it’s not a ballad either. It’s the sweet spot in the middle, and it’s easy to listen to that it can easily be background music when working or studying.
Lastly, I love how the storyline for the MV is open to interpretation. I’ll just pretend that Mingyu and Wonwoo chose each other. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
SEVENTEEN’s latest unit and single releases have been so good lately that my expectations are just getting higher and higher. I would love to hear a Vernon and Joshua duo one day.
Listen to this masterpiece below~ (It would’ve been nice if the girl in the MV was Lee Hi, but I guess we can’t have everything. T~T)
