Wendy's beautiful blues

After seven years of wait, Red Velvet's Wendy finally gifts us her long-awaited first solo mini-album Like Water! Having gone through hardships in her yearlong hiatus, Wendy comes back in a stronger self, and with a stronger voice, to welcome a new chapter of her life.

Wendy shows off her vocal color and skills all at once in the mellow but powerful main title track Like Water (Track 2). Produced by Coach & Sendo, the acoustic pop ballad describes a love that is soft, healing and important Like Water: "My love is like water, filling up your painful spots, wrapping around your wounds, and hugging you tightly, making you stand up again."

We're used to hearing Wendy sing high notes in Red Velvet songs, but she also nails low-pitch tones, like in the slow-tempo ballad When This Rain Stops (Track 1). Featured as one of the title tracks, this song heals with lyrics telling us it's alright to take a moment for ourselves: "As far as the distance has gotten away / I can run again / Now, I make myself to be heard again / Breathe again."

The ambience then changes to rhythmical and swingy with the mid-tempo pop R&B Why Can't You Love Me? (Track 3). Wendy sings about having a crush on someone in a melodic number that just fits perfectly with the atmosphere of spring. Following three sweet ballads, Wendy goes sentimental about a past flame in the modern rock ballad "The Road" (Track 4). The album is wrapped up with Best Friend (Track 5) – her duet with bandmate Seul Gi – to celebrate their everlasting friendship and share their gratitude towards each other. The heartwarming ballad is penned by producer minGtion, who also wrote When This Rain Stops.

We've all missed Wendy and her angelic voice, and her solo debut is perhaps the best thing to happen to ReVeluvs in half a year. Wendy shows her qualities as one of the best K-pop vocalists of her generation with her warm and beautiful blues in Like Water.
