WATCH: ONEWE members tug at the heartstrings with the delicate and emotive ‘Universe’ MV
On the afternoon of January 4th, ONEWE's second mini-album 'Planet Nine: VOYAGER' was released through various music sites. With their first mini-album 'Planet Nine: Alter Ego' released in June, ONEWE, who brought mature music and identity, is expected to show the peak of the charm of the five members through this album. In particular, in this album, each member's own song is included, which adds to the meaning.
The title song 'Universe' is a self-composed song by member Yonghoon. As a continuation of the 'Universe Series', which can be seen as the identity of Onewe, the composition amplified from the empty synth sound and quiet breathing expresses each other's stars becoming one and each other's universe.
The song talks about being there for their loved ones through thick and thin. The song brings about many emotions through the slow instrumentation in the beginning which has a beautiful resolve in the second chorus as they skillfully play their instruments, blending it with their soulful voices. The MV was similar to the lyrics as the members spend time with their loved ones, as if dedicating those heartwarming lyrics to them. The song truly earns its keep as a ballad.
