B.I is on his way to melt hearts as the artist prepares for his highly anticipated arrival with some mesmerizing new music soon!
Kim Hanbin is on his way to captivate listeners with his sweet tunes. Through his agency 131 Label, B.I unveiled a delightful music video teaser for his upcoming release. Titled “Midnight Blue”, the track is part of the rapper-singer’s upcoming album.
Reminiscent of an early 90s anime, the music video teaser certainly evokes a nostalgic vibe that is further amplified by the maudlin nature of the soft piano melody.
The teaser sees an animated boy with a band-aid on his face. He bears quite a wistful demeanor yet radiates warmth with his gentle features and mellow smile as he communicates in sign language.
Perhaps what’s even more heartwarming is the description of the track under the music video teaser on YouTube.
It reads as, “‘Midnight Blue’ is a track that gives a warm embrace to the audience with a calm piano melody and warm vocal tone. Like the lyrics ‘I will cover your heart with a blanket in the dark midnight’, hope this track can be a comfort to anyone who is enduring its wound alone.”
Additionally, about a month ago, B.I had uploaded on his SoundCloud account 131 of what seems to be a preview of the soon-to-be-released song.
In contrast to the teaser, however, the SoundCloud release does not feature a prominent piano tune and sees B.I sing in acapella instead. Nonetheless, this version truly beguiles as the multifaceted musician stirs with his angelic vocals.
Besides, B.I made a comeback earlier this year as he was featured on a supercool track, titled “Acceptance Speech”, from Epik High’s latest album Epik High Is Here 上, Part 1. The nearing release of his album will, however, mark Hanbin’s first release as a solo artist since 2018.
Meanwhile, B.I will be making his grand return with his album Love Streaming, which is to be released on March 19 at 6 PM KST. Moreover, as part of the music donation project, the loveable artist is said to be donating all of the profits and copyright fees from this album as well.
