AFTER a surprise announcement and countless teasers, the day has finally arrived for Wendy, the main vocalist of K-pop girl group Red Velvet, to come up with her solo album.
Her debut mini-album ‘Like Water’ was released yesterday and a music video for the title track.
In the clip, Wendy performs the emotional ballad alone in a mansion filled with overgrown plants. It also features shots of the singer in a glass pavilion, similarly surrounded by bright red flora.
“We’re destined / We complete each other and comfort one another / It makes you heal / Always like water,” she belts in the song’s climactic final chorus.
The five-track record features production by Yoo Young Jin Kenzie, minGtion, and Coach&Sendo. It also includes the song ‘Best Friend’, which is a collaboration with fellow Red Velvet member Seulgi.
News of the singer’s solo debut was first reported in March by South Korean entertainment outlet StarNews.
Following the report, SM confirmed that the singer would be releasing a solo project.
“Wendy is working with the goal of releasing a solo album in April. Please look forward to it,” the company said.
Before her album drop, Wendy shared a special message to her fans via Spotify. In her message, she dedicated the record to her fans who have been supporting her and been there for her ‘like water’.
“To all my fans who know me and think of me more than anybody, even myself, you are the most precious and most indispensable to me on earth just like water. I will always stand by your side no matter what. I wish I could be the reason for your life like you are to me,” says Wendy.
Fans have been pouring in their love for the K-Pop star ever since she released her first solo track titled Like Water.
Fans and followers of the singer took to their Twitter handles and stated that they are proud of her and also excited about the fact that her track has surpassed one million views on YouTube in less than 24 hours.
‘Like Water’ makes Wendy the first Red Velvet member to release a solo project.
Prior to 2021, Wendy had been on a year-long hiatus due to a stage accident during the 2019 SBS Gayo Daejeon music festival.
The singer suffered a pelvic fracture and broken wrist, among other injuries, and had to be hospitalized for two months.
However, despite her hiatus, the singer still released a handful of songs in 2020, for the soundtracks of TV dramas such as The King: Eternal Monarch and Start-Up. She had also participated in her group’s remake of BoA’s 2003 hit, ‘Milky Way’. (NP)
