K-pop boy band NU’EST offered up a lush romantic ode in the form of their groovy new single “Love Me,” out on Monday (Oct. 21).
A vibrant deep house track that rhythmically bounces along with the members’ warm tones, “Love Me” NU’EST serving up sweet promises of how they’ll act in a relationship once the object of their affection returns their feelings.
According to the blurb on the YouTube page of the music video for “Love Me,” NU’EST use the song to send “the message that one should be more honest when in love in their own direct yet rhythmical way.”
Throughout the video, the five band members are seen reveling in their candy-like love through a variety of date night activities, such as baking or watching a movie with popcorn, all the while performing the sleek, funky choreography. Towards the end, they blast off Back to the Future style in an old-fashioned car, only to spend the to watch a movie and have fun with one another.
The song title also could be seen as a subtle reference to the group’s fandom, known as L.O.Λ.E, who have supported the group’s career through its ups and downs.
“Love Me” was co-written by Baekho with NU’EST longterm collaborator Bumzu, while JR is credited as a lyricist and Park Gi-tae and Nmore also are credited as songwriters.
The new single is featured on the quintet’s newly released The Table EP, the group’s seventh Korean EP since their start in 2012, and also released on Oct. 21. The album is said to revolve around the theme of love and, “Expresses a variety of emotions and memories that anyone can encounter throughout their lives.” The release has a very intimate vibe, with each song on the album said to represent the sort of story that friends and family members share with one another about their romances when sitting around the dinner table.
The Table follows the April release of Happily Ever After, which peaked at No. 8 on the World Albums chart.
