[Review] Call Your Name – JBJ

Despite some talks of contract extensions for the popular JBJ, they have just unveiled their final comeback song, Call Your Name. Call Your Name is featured on their 1st full-length album, which consists of all their previous tracks such as My Flower and Fantasy, while also featuring 2 new tracks. It will be sad to see them go however it does mean that they will be returning to their original groups and hopefully we will see them all on stage once again.

Listening to the song the first time around, it sounded very bittersweet. It didn’t help that I watched the video as well. More on that later. While it is an upbeat sound, there is still a heavy atmosphere surrounding the song. The lyrics aren’t much help with dissolving this atmosphere with touching lines like ‘We both knew the end but why did we give love to each other‘ and ‘Let’s meet again on a fine day‘. Even though I was not a fan of JBJ, it does sadden me when I see such lyrics in a farewell song. The song had a nice yet very typical (in today’s standard) instrumental. I like the alternating vocals and raps throughout the song and the rapping in this song (for both rappers) felt extremely fitting. I particularly loved the rapping just before each chorus, pairing well with the violins in the background. The drops into the chorus were nice and following that buildup, felt somewhat epic.

As mentioned previously, the music video was no help with the bittersweet feels from the song. There were moments throughout the video where the members (individually) looked away from what was going on, knowing that these are their final moments together. Arghhh… The feels. Besides that, the music video featured a nice beach scenery, where the members hang out for the day, before going back inland to camp. The music video looked like they were having a lot of fun and I thought they pretty much enjoyed their time.

As far as I am aware, there is no choreography for this comeback. As far as I know, they won’t be promoting it. This final comeback was just their final say of goodbyes to their fans. Though, if something is uploaded involving a choreography, I will update this part as soon as possible.

Song – 9/10
Music Video – 9/10
Overall – 9/10
