For this post, I will be reviewing LAY’s latest single. I once featured his song – “Honey” as my song of the week. If you have not read that post, use this link to check it out 👉🏼 LAY – HONEY: Song Of The Week
On December 15th, LAY dropped an MV for his new single “Grandma”. This song is a tribute to his late grandmother, who passed away in July of this year. He lived with his grandparents growing up and even wrote the song “I Need U” about them.
(Note – this is a real-time review, meaning I am typing down my exact thoughts while listening to this song.)
Reaction to Official MV:
- I love that song starts out with him just singing the melody.
- And then he says, “I miss you, I miss you.” 😢😢
- I was expecting a slow song, but it is a bit upbeat.
- Unfortunately, the music video does not have English captions.
- I really love the pre-chorus and chorus sections. LAY’s voice shined more in those parts.
- I feel like I am missing out on a lot because I cannot understand what he is saying.
- He seems to be going to all the places that he once visited with grandma. Kind off like walking through his memories of her.
- I love it when videos show the scope of a city.
- He must really miss his grandma. Also, I read that she wanted to attend his concert but could not make it.
- I am going to search for a lyric video now.
- Found one –
- Now that I can understand the lyrics, I am definitely enjoying the song more.
- The lyrics are so heartbreaking but touching. Stay strong, LAY.
- This song is basically about his memories of living with his grandparents and his grandma’s words of encouragement to him during her last moments. He also talks about wanting to make her proud and how he wishes to return to her embrace.
- Apparently, the lyrics during the chorus section and bridge is actually an old lullaby that grandma used to sing to him.
- This is a beautiful and heartfelt song. I really love it.
- I am not going to be rating “Grandma” by LAY because it represents his feelings and pain.
- My sincere condolences to LAY and his family, may her soul rest in peace. I wish you all the best, LAY.
