Red Velvet Wiki

"Be Natural" is Red Velvet's second single, released on October 13, 2014 (though the music video release was on October 9 and promotions of this song had began on the same day) featuring labelmate NCT member Taeyong, who was credited then under SM Entertainment's pre-debut group SM Rookies. It is a remake of the company's former girl group S.E.S.'s song with the very same name.

Background and release

"Be Natural" is a remake of the 2000 song of the same name by the company's former girl group, S.E.S. Red Velvet had also added a more sultry and mature sound to the song. It is described as a neo-soul song with a simple hip hop beat and modern jazz sound. Members Seulgi and Irene previously performed a portion of the remake in a pre-debut video under the company's pre-debut group SMROOKIES as part of promotions of the group.

Teaser images were released in early October, showing all 4 members in suits, hinting at a transition to a more mature concept from their first single, "Happiness".

The music video is shot using the one-take filming technique. In it, they presented a dynamic, seductive and masculine performance with a new dance routine involving chairs that highlighted their flexibility and curves wearing suits.

"Be Natural" debuted at number 33 on the Gaon Singles Chart.
