NU’EST Drops Melancholic 2017 ver. of Hit Track, ‘Hello’ as Thank You to Fans
NU’EST drops heart-wrenching new rendition of their hit track ‘Hello’ (여보세요), performed by four members JR, Aron, Baekho and Ren. Through this acoustic instrumental version that highlights the boys’ vocals with heavy piano notes, the boys send their yearning and thanks to waiting L.O.V.Es, yet with a heavy undertone of awaiting their fifth member, Minhyun (as seen in the hashtag ‘Waiting_you’).
In place of the fellow lead vocals’, we hear vocalists Aron and Ren stepping up to fill the lines; Aron’s dialogue at the beginning and end on top of the beautiful harmonies adds a melancholic touch. JR’s rapping makes for break and added dynamics. Last but not least, this is the first fans have heard Baekho’s vocals since the Produce 101 concert, and his gentle lines mixed with husky tone adds depth to this beautiful rendition.
The emotional release is a stark contrast from the pop ballad version released in 2013, and marks the growth and maturity of the members’ vocals since as well.
While there is no digital release of this version, ‘ 여보세요_2017′ have trended on Twitter in no.1 spot, while ‘ 뉴이스트’ have trended no.1 in Naver and MelOn. ‘여보세요’ is now trending no.2 on MelOn. The video has since earned over 110k views at the time this article was written.
