Another Smash! Red Velvet Unveils Their Colorful “Sappy” Video
K-Pop Queens Red Velvet are kicking off 2019 with another smash. The quintet was particularly generous last year, dropping a slew of mini-albums. Summer Magic had the distinction of featuring their first all-English track, a re-recorded version of “Bad Boy.” Their second all-English track – “RBB (Really Bad Boy)” – acted as an amped-up sequel of sorts and arrived back in November. Glamorous member WENDY also partnered with John Legend for the romantic “Written In The Stars.” That’s just a taste of what they unveiled, and it looks like they aren’t planning on slowing down anytime soon. Instead, over the weekend the girls dropped a new Japanese-language song, “Sappy.”
The anthem comes after the July release of their debut Japanese mini-album, #Cookie Jar. And it sounds like it may be the group’s next global hit. Boasting another vibrant production and some exemplary vocals, it is a testament to their undeniable star power. And the accompanying video is just as great. Filled to bursting with chic looks and choreographed routines, it is a colorful explosion with some fun twists. The release is also on track to be their next viral video. At the time of publishing, it has been viewed more than 6 million times. That’s enough to have it sitting within the Top 20 on YouTube’s trending page.
“Sappy” is sure to get plenty more love if it makes it on the setlist for the group’s ongoing tour. They’re currently playing a handful of shows in Japan and will touch down in North America in February. In the meantime, check out Red Velvet’s latest release below!
