Our favorite Maknae is back! SHINee’s Taemin, the idol of idols has returned with yet another hit! Advice might be his best work to date and we are truly obsessed with the music video! If you haven’t watched the video yet, what are you waiting for?
Taemin is breaking every gender norm with this music video and his outfits. The idol has always been very open about wanting to seem alluring yet genderless and ‘Advice‘ hits the nail on the head! Taemin’s long hair, the outfits, and the fast but sharp choreography blew us away on the first watch. And we haven’t been able to stop hitting the rewatch button yet!
‘Advice’ is an R&B song that creates a magnificent atmosphere by harmonizing minor piano melody and choir on a trap beat. And we get Taemin actually rapping during the verses! The chorus is performed in a really high register, which Taemin does effortlessly. Truly insane what Taemin is able to do. We can’t believe this is his last comeback before his one-and-a-half-year hiatus due to the singer having to enlist in the military at the end of May.
We will dearly miss this trendsetter and breaker of gender norms! At least with the hard choreography, Taemin has given his juniors some homework. We are excited to see who dares to cover this masterpiece.
His Best Album Yet
But not only is the title of the idol’s third mini-album an experience but so are the rest of the songs. Our personal favorite might be ‘If I could tell you.’ A beautiful duet with Girls’ Generation Taeyeon. The singers have some of the best and most flawless vocal harmonies we have heard. Magical.
The soft pop-dance ‘Light,’ which expresses a loving lover against the light, has us swooning since the lyrics compare the lover to a string instrument.
‘Strings,’ is Taemin’s next sexy masterpiece, apparently, Taemin didn’t even let his parents hear this song before it came out. We have glanced at the lyrics and it’s super sexy.
Last but not least is the beautiful ‘SAD KIDS,’ which is an extension of Taemin‘s pre-release single for his third album Never Gonna Dance Again, ‘2 KIDS,’ which recalls the love of childhood. Both songs are supposedly part of the love story SHINee have been keeping alive through ‘Replay,’ ‘Love Sick,’ and ‘Marry You.’
A masterpiece all around, but nothing less was expected from this master of his art. There is truly no one who is able to compare to SHINee‘s youngest, Taemin. Every time we think this is it, this is the best he has ever done, the idol just outdoes himself again and again!
All hail, Taemin! We will miss you dearly and hope you stay safe and healthy in the military. Until 2023!
