On March 22nd, chart topping soloist IU released the MV teaser to ‘Coin’; one of her two title tracks for her upcoming 5th full album, ‘Lilac’. With the album name being the same as its second title track, anticipation is high as this release marks her first full album since 2017’s ‘Palette’. Check out ‘Coin’s MV teaser down below!
In the 30 second clip, we see the artist wearing a retro fit of suspenders with a white blouse and loosened striped tie to go with. She inserts a coin into a machine leading it to ring as we cut to a gambling table. Cards in hand, she bets with her stacks of chips trying to earn a score. Playing seriously by tying up her hair, she glares across the counter as she finishes by chicly throwing a card towards the viewer. Between these scenes, there is a short choreography segment with four backup dancers as she elegantly yet precisely moves her shoulders in a daring white and red ensemble. The background follows the casino theme with black spade cards fill the backdrop.
Musically, the track features a cool quick saxophone and strings to create a classy upbeat vibe. As the strings increase their play, it builds up leading to the singer to harmonically state the lyrics, “All in”.
Prior to this teaser, songstress released multiple other teasers in the form of the album’s track list, short films, lyric and video teasers for the various songs in the 10-tune collection. She also pre-released another single included in this upcoming drop, ‘Celebrity’. The electropop track topped the Korean charts and has maintained its position in the top 3 to this day since its release almost two months later. We can only anticipate how well each of her other tracks will perform upon their arrival. Being one of the nation’s sweethearts, we expect she will fill many of the chart positions high up in the ranks.
IU’s 5th full album, ‘Lilac’ with the double title tracks ‘Coin’ and ‘Lilac’ is scheduled for release on March 5th, 6PM KST!
