For those who have heard Red Velvet‘s recent comeback hit “Dumb Dumb” will most likely have noticed the mention of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, but there’s more to it than that.
If you’re not a huge Michael Jackson fan, you might not have caught on, but don’t worry, we’ll lay it out for you.
On September 19th, a netizen published on online community board Instiz a post titled “Secrets of Red Velvet’s ‘Dumb Dumb’ lyrics” and commented, “Irene-Joy’s rap lyrics. Did you know they put Michael Jackson’s song titles in them!!”
You need to “Beat It”
That boy Michael Jackson “Bad“
I’m not your“Billie Jean”
Don’t you “Leave Me Alone”
You keep confusing me I want it “Black Or White”
Won’t give you up “Man In The Mirror”
“Why You Wanna Trip On Me”
You’re playing me too much
Boy, you make me “Scream“
Why am I being like this
I guess it’s cuz your “Love really Never Felt So Good”
It’s so thtilling it’s like Watching the “Thriller“
The original poster continues, “The lyricist’s sense…ㄷㄷ”.
This song seems like an amazing tribute to the late King of Pop, who passed away in June 2009 at the age of 50.
