This marks the fourth music video he released to accompany the tracks in the album.
Blue sticks to V’s individual music colour, which is relatively more laid-back and easy on the ears.
While its song title is the name of a colour, the music video is presented with a monochromatic effect ironically. There’s only colour in the opening scene of the 2-minute clip.
Like his other tracks in the album, Blue has that lo-fi feel to it. And it pays homage to old-school R&B but presented with a modern twist.
Compared to BTS’ colourful, dynamic and fun music videos, Blue definitely feels comparatively plain and simple. But that’s what V intended for anyway, to show fans who he really is without unnecessary extravaganza.
So it worked out well for him.
Other than Love Me Again, the other tracks feel like they’re forgettable. But make no mistake: each track is well-produced and executed.
These are tunes that are no doubt calming and soothing, but they lack that oomph to it. So there’s no actual impression created after hearing it just once or twice.
Perhaps it’s also because there are no specific addictive hooks, which are very much commonplace in K-pop tracks nowadays.
Of course, it’s a little of a pity because V definitely has much more to offer. But maybe it’s not time for that just yet, as he has got other things in store for fans.
