BamBam is back with new music. Ahead of a new project that will be released in 2022, BamBam is signing off 2021 with the pre-single “Who Are You”, featuring Red Velvet’s Seulgi.
The track, a soft mid-tempo pop song which perfectly matches BamBam and Seulgi’s whispering voices, is paired with a music video in which the pair dance in sync and mirror each other’s movements in dark, charismatic, and enigmatic settings.
BamBam and Seulgi’s voices echo each other over an overly atmospheric arrangement that gives the track a subtly dramatic tone in the duet. The lyrics match the drama and subtle angst, “If you’re gonna say what I think / Go ahead and say it already / I keep wandering and wanting you / I can’t even escape” and “I know well / You don’t know yet, I’m wandering around / I want to wake you up for you / So that you won’t be / Into a dark illusion called love”.
“Who Are You” has been well received by both BamBam and Seulgi fans, and it’s making outstanding achievements worldwide. In Korea, the pre-single has reached No.1 on Genie’s Real-Time Chart – BamBam has previously achieved this with “riBBon” in June. Worldwide the song has topped the iTunes Top Songs Chart in 22 countries, including Argentina, Brazil, France, Malaysia, Poland, and Thailand; entered the Worldwide iTunes Song Chart at #10 and, at the time of writing, the music video has surpassed 5 million views on YouTube.
“Who Are You” is a pre-single and anticipates BamBam’s 2022 project. With composition by Grey (Kyle Trewartha, Michael Trewartha), Mikael Temrowski, and Livvi Franc, BamBam participated in the lyrics, and Lee Seuran, Lee Ha Jin, Grey (Kyle Trewartha, Michael Trewartha), Mikael Temrowski, and Livvi Franc.
