From their upcoming Japanese-language studio debut ‘Bloom’
Red Velvet have unveiled the music video for their new single ‘Wildside’ from their upcoming debut Japanese-language studio album ‘Bloom’.
In the new visual, the members of Red Velvet play robbers, dodging lasers as they break into a vault containing diamond-encrusted jewellery and other valuables. “Inside out, my wild side, my wild side / The unseen me who has overcome weakness / Far away, far away / Higher and higher / To the place unseen,” they sing on the chorus.
Red Velvet’s debut Japanese-language studio album ‘Bloom’ arrives April 6.
In addition to lead single ‘Wildside’, the 11-track record is set to include four other Japanese-language original songs, including ‘Marionette’, ‘Jackpot’, ‘Snap Snap’ and ‘Color of Love’. ‘Bloom’ will mark the girl group’s first Japanese release in almost two years, following May 2019’s ‘Sappy’, which spawned the singles ‘Sappy’ and ‘Sayonara’.
Last week, Red Velvet returned with their seventh Korean mini-album ‘The ReVe Festival 2022 – Feel My Rhythm’ and its lead single ‘Feel My Rhythm’. The new record will marks the group’s first music project since their August 2021 mini-album ‘Queendom’.
Prior to the release of ‘The ReVe Festival 2022 – Feel My Rhythm’, the group’s members Irene, Joy and Yeri tested positive for COVID-19, leading to the postponement of their their Seoul concerts ‘2022 The ReVe Festival: Prologue’.
“The future status of the event will be decided after reviewing the COVID-19 situation and the artists’ health,” shared their agency SM Entertainment.
