Quick Review

A Red Velvet song is not a Red Velvet song if it does not contain an unforgettable rhythm – a feature that “Umpah Umpah” proudly boasts of.

Its light and upbeat sound captures listeners’ attention without a fail, and is so catchy to the point where it seems impossible to get it out of your head once you hear it.

Do not get fooled by its cheerful rhythm though, as it showcases a killer bridge and a highlight of the girls’ vocal abilities.

Plus, which Reveluv would have missed the very clever placing of every lead track title from their their discography on the songs’ lyrics?

The music video also reflected the happy, summery vibes that the song gives off with its cheery concept. In true Red Velvet fashion, “Umpah Umpah” also contains an explosion of vibrant colors which made the five girls stand out even more.

What’s more is that the music video also definitely gave fans so many outfit ideas to copy, as well as beauty pegs inspired by Irene, Seulgi, Wendy, Joy, and Yeri’s utterly refreshing visuals.
