2. ‘Villain’ [Title Track]
According to the tracklist, the mini-album ‘Villain’ from Drippin is a six-track EP that the members will release with ‘Villain’ as its lead single. Woollim Entertainment revealed that the title track is characterized by a groovy electric bass as well as minimalistic beat which makes the song more passionate and dangerous as compared to other K-pop songs.
Fans consider that this single could work well as a background score for anti-heroes or villains in dramas and movies. With the release of the mini-album, ‘Villain’ fans will be able to witness the expanded musical horizon that Drippin is reaching for with songs that show duality like ‘Villain’ as well as ‘Shy’.
Drippin has successfully raised a lot of curiosity amongst fans of the group that will see the members of this rookie group in a 'mature' concept with the release of the EP ‘Villain’. So far, the few concept photos that were released by Drippin to promote their upcoming album have caught the eye of many fans who have been charmed by the visuals created by the septet which radiate a dangerous energy. All seven members of the group appear to be standing in a space filled with colorful chandeliers and red lighting, which is a departure from their earlier colorful and cool-toned concepts from previous releases.
In addition, Drippin members’ chic charismas and villainous glares are reflecting in the various solo concept images released by the label too. The boys are seen wearing leather jackets and harnesses that is raising many questions about the story that will be narrated through Drippin’s upcoming album concept. Over all, with raised expectations, fans are excited to see these young boys transform into powerful villains.
Drippin will drop the music video for ‘Villain’, the title track of their third mini-album of the same name on January 17, at 6 pm KST (4 am ET).
