New York pop artist Max has shared a music video for his new single “Blueberry Eyes” featuring rapper Suga of BTS.
“Blueberry Eyes” is from Max’s upcoming third album, Colour Vision. Its music video features the singer lazing in a blueberry-filled bathtub with his wife Emily Cannon. He proposes to her, and the vibrant color defines their life together from that point on—including Cannon’s pregnancy with Max’s child. Though Suga doesn’t appear in the video, the couple lip-sync to his Korean lyrics.
“Bringing this music video to life has been such a special experience,” Max wrote on YouTube. “I wanted it to feel as if Disney magically made a baby with Wes Anderson in the world of Colour Vision with every bit of our souls intertwined… We studied and memorized all of the Korean lyrics to Suga’s incredible and romantic verse and all of the blueberries in the bathtub ended up being reused to create limited edition blueberry-dyed blueberry eyes shirts.”
Max revealed in an interview with Teen Vogue that he actually sent the entirety of Colour Vision to the rapper and let him choose which track he would appear on. “Blueberry Eyes” was the winner, and the first take Suga sent back to Max ended up being the verse used on the final track.
Colour Vision will be released tomorrow, September 18. Watch the video for “Blueberry Eyes” here:
