Wendy of Red Velvet has released her long-awaited solo debut EP, Like Water.
The five-track project features songs written by frequent Red Velvet collaborators, including South Korean songwriters Kenzie and Yoo Young-jin. It also includes “Best Friend,” a duet with fellow groupmate Seulgi.
“I want to show a new side of myself as a solo singer, but I also thought a lot about how to keep the color of Red Velvet,” she said during a recent press conference, per Soompi. “I just want to share comfort and emotion with many people through my voice. I hope that I can become an artist that many people relate to.”
Like Water dropped alongside a video for the title track that features Wendy performing the emotional ballad alone in a mansion filled with a myriad of colorful plants. “My love is like water / Filling your sore spots / It covers the deep wounds / And embraces you tightly / It makes you rise again,” she croons on the chorus.
