Background and release

On February 18, as part of an exclusive, Xports News reported that Red Velvet would be having a comeback in March.[1] Less than an hour later, SM Entertainment confirmed themselves that Red Velvet are preparing an album with the goal of releasing it in March.[2] On March 2, it was announced that the group will be coming back on March 21 with their ninth mini album, The ReVe Festival 2022 - Feel My Rhythm.[3][4] The album contains six songs in various genres including the title track, "Feel My Rhythm". Pre-orders for the album started on March 2.[4] A scheduler was posted on March 7 which revealed when pictures/videos will be released.[5]

Composition

"Feel My Rhythm" is described as a dance pop song that samples Johann Sebastian Bach's "Air On The G String". The song has a strong trap beat, elegant and delicate string melody, and the members' fantasy like vocals. The lyrics unravel the journey about freely enjoying traveling through space and time.[6] "Rainbow Halo" is described as an R&B pop dance song that features a clap sound on a soft bell sound and a groovy bass. [7] "Beg For Me" is described as an R&B pop dance song that talks about someone who skillfully is able to control their partner who is always begging for everything. The dynamic and rhythmical song shows the charms, as if they are playing hard to get, through their chic vocals.[7] "Bamboleo" is described as a retro dance pop song that blends the electronic guitar and rhythmic bass with the synth and dreamy EP sound. "Bamboleo" means 'sway' in spanish and the lyrics talk about being able to dance freely throughout the night and be immersed in one's own time while looking in the mirror.[8] "Good, Bad, Ugly" is described as a R&B medium tempo song. The song has sensuous chord progression and a rhythmic brass sound that is on top of the groovy shuffle rhythm. The lyrics compare the moment in a person's life that are unpredictable to picking chocolate out of a box and contains a positive message.[8] "In My Dreams" is described as a R&B slow-tempo ballad. The base of the song has a minimal trap rhythm with the signature sound of a music box being featured in the beginning and end of the song. The energy also explodes in the chorus. The lyrics talk about being able to express the desire to be with the person you love for the rest of your life even in your dreams.[8]
