Sunmi has returned with her first single of 2021, “Tail.”
The ex-Wonder Girls member transforms into DC Comics character Catwoman in the video. After being left for dead by a former lover, the singer is brought back to life by a litter of mysterious and magical black cats, and she sets out to get revenge.
“We’re madly in love / Kiss each other like crazy / Rock your head like crazy / We’re madly in love / Kiss each other like crazy / Wag our tails frantically,” she sings on the sensual dance-pop song. Sunmi wrote lyrics for the song and co-composed it with longtime collaborator Frants.
During a recent press conference, Sunmi explained how the track came about. “Animals use their tail to express their emotions. They’ll shake their tails gently when they’re in a good mood and flick it hard if frustrated. I liked the frankness of this instinctive behavior and the word ‘tail’ just left a huge impact in my mind,” she said, according to The Korea Herald.
