The countdown for August 16, 2021 begins.
After their week-long promotional project “Queens Mystical General Store” on Instagram and their 7th anniversary live broadcast as a group, Red Velvet is back to releasing new music with a mini album (rightfully) titled “Queendom”.
A “big” announcement on August 2 was hinted by the Red Velvet members during the Naver V Live Broadcast that celebrated their 7th anniversary as a group, which thrilled fans and got them curious. Fan accounts on Twitter suddenly tweeted an announcement for Red Velvet’s Online Fan meeting on August 16, 2021, which drew in a lot of attention from fans before the girl group’s actual big announcement.

This mini album marks Red Velvet’s return as a full group since December 2019 with “The ReVe Festival: Finale” and the title track “Psycho”. The group will also be holding an Online Fan Meeting on the same day as their comeback, at 8 PM KST.
With their reigning title as “Summer Queens”, Red Velvet’s summer release is expected to gain a lot of attention from fans and music critics everywhere. Their past summer tracks, namely “Red Flavor”, “Power Up”, and “Umpah Umpah” have received much love for their upbeat sound and visuals, gaining attention internationally and putting Red Velvet on Billboard’s radar. Billboard has even named them as “The Best Idol Group Alive” back in November 2019.
ReVeluvs everywhere are excited to hear Red Velvet’s iconic summer sound on August 16, 2021, and who wouldn’t be? Let’s all greet the QUEENS of K-Pop with grace and excitement!
