Red Velvet Releases Thrilling Mood Sampler For ‘Birthday’

On November 15, Red Velvet unveiled an exciting concept on their upcoming mini-album with the title track “Birthday”.

A mood sampler for the song was released that day, indicating the song’s overall feel. Based on the clip, “Birthday” is pop-dance in a trap rhythm, combined with impressive rhythmic drums and cool synthesizer sounds.

This is expected to flaunt the “velvet” side of the group, which is casual, classy and subdued with amazing vocal harmonies.

The mood sampler also revealed that “Birthday” sampled George Gershwin’s classical music titled “Rhapsody in Blue”.

Expectations are high whether the heated reactions of music fans to “Feel My Rhythm”, which sampled Bach’s “Air on the G String”, will continue and create a new craze with this song.

ReVeluvs also said it reminded them of old Red Velvet songs and even an older girl group vibe.

  • “The beat reminded me a bit of Dumb Dumb + Russian Roulette + Psycho”
  • “Reminds me of Pink Tape F(x).”
  • “I’m a fan of another band, but personally I think Red Velvet deserves to be highly rated in terms of craftsmanship.
  • The symbolic objects that are added by default to match the concept of the album are innovative, and the directorial power behind them is one of the main factors…
  • “The name Red Velvet is well made. Even if you ask an ordinary person whether it is a red or velvet concept, they will immediately understand you. Musically speaking, Red Velvet has been a success.”
