“Today’s the day, it’s your birthday, birthday!”
Red Velvet finally makes their return after 8 months with ‘The ReVe Festival 2022 – Birthday”, with the title track “Birthday” on November 28, 2022 at 6 P.M. KST. The release is the newest addition to the girl group’s newest trilogy, “The ReVe Festival 2022”, following ‘The ReVe Festival 2022 – Feel My Rhythm,” their release in March 2022.
The mini-album received a pre-order volume of more than 710,000 copies, granting Red Velvet a brand new record, after “The ReVe Festival 2022 – Feel My Rhythm”.
Red Velvet’s newest EP consists of 5 tracks, highlighting mostly R&B sounds with pop, trap, hyperpop and ballad sounds. The title track, “Birthday”, samples another famous composition that is recognizable by anyone—“Rhapsody in Blue” by George Gershwin, and is a pop dance song featuring trap, drum, and synth rhythms. The lyrics expresses a confession that wants to give the person they like a day to remember by making their birthday wishes and dreams come true.
And today’s truly that day, with ReVeluvs gushing all about it over social media. And obviously, one specific scene from the MV stood out among the rest—it’s definitely not a Red Velvet music video if you don’t see them looking like a cult.

Red Velvet received praise for leading the (use of) classical music in Kpop from "Feel My Rhythm" to "Birthday"
