About two days ago, Ailee released her new single “Sweater” in two versions, Korean and English. For this review, I will be checking out both versions. Amy Lee, popularly known as Ailee, is a Korean-American singer-songwriter based primarily in South Korea. The singer made her official debut in 2012 with the single “Heaven”. I really love that song. Ailee is also known for her powerful voice and emotional OSTs. With the release of her new single “Sweater’, Ailee also announced her plans to enter the U.S. market. I guess that is why we got an English version for this song.
(Note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to this song.)
Reaction to official MVs:
- I will be watching the Korean version first.
- She looks stunning, as always.
- Yesss, I missed her soulful voice.
- Oh, I got chills when she sang – “I’ll wear your Christmas sweater on me tonight.”
- Did the wife of the guy in the video pass away? Sad
- Everyone in the music video seems to be missing someone.
- I love the visuals when she is sitting with the dry trees around her.
- Okay, this is definitely a sad song, and I have not even listened to the English version yet.
- Ailee’s voice is lovely.
- This is a simple song, but I still enjoyed listening to it.
- Time to check out the English version –
- The instrumental accompanying the song is melancholic and definitely gives off that feeling of despair.
- Her voice is so soothing but also powerful when it has to be.
- I love both versions equally.
- All the Christmas songs I have listened to so far showed different perspectives of what people might be feeling during this season.
- Not everyone is happy during this holiday. The music video shows individuals that have lost their loved ones and have to spend their first Christmas without them. So sad.
- My rating for “Sweater” is 9/10. It is a beautiful song, but it did not captivate me as much as the other songs I have been listening to since yesterday.
- All the same, I wish Ailee success on her U.S debut and future activities in Korea.
