Music Monday|YELO— My Yellow

Music Monday|YELO— My Yellow

Hello my BAYOG luvs~ It’s Monday! So y’all know it’s another Music Monday post~ Confession though… I wasn’t really sure of what track to highlight today. I said I was going for a spring theme for this month’s posts. So when I think of spring the words that come to mind are: love, sweet, airy, soft, gentle, flowers, sunlight, colorful, pastels, and cafes/coffeeshops.. However, nothing was really calling out to me. I just wasn’t really feeling anything. Still, in the end the track I was feeling the most was “My Yellow” by YELO. I think this track is more between spring and summer, but I think it was the closest to the vibe I was feeling today. It’s a sweet, chill, and relaxing track~ Plus, I thought it’d be nice to introduce y’all to an indie artist and track~ Anyway, leggoooo~

Not going to lie. I don’t know much about YELO (엘로). I just know she’s a YouTuber who started off with posting covers, and then subsequently started releasing her own music. So yeah, she’s an indie/krnb artist under MonoTree. I think her first video on YouTube was a cover of “Best Part” by Daniel Caesar and H.E.R. I just randomly stumbled on her music when I was going down a late night Spotify rabbit hole. She’s got a really nice voice that’s relaxing and sweet, yet has a bit of soul in it. I actually did end up liking her other songs too~

Artist: YELO (엘로)
Single: My Yellow
Genre: K-Pop, K-Indie, K-R&B, Indie, R&B
Language: English
Origin: South Korea
Release: January 2021

“My Yellow” is a single that Yelo released in January 2021. So yes, it’s a new-ish release. It’s actually entirely in English as well. The track is very soft and mellow R&B track. You also definitely get this bright, warm, and soft image of “yellow”. The vibe is basically mellow, sweet, soft, and warm. Honestly, there’s not really much I can say about it. I just think it’s simply a really sweet and enjoyable track to listen to. I feel like it’s pretty relaxing to listen to as well.

Music Video & Lyrics

The lyrics are simple, but sweet. I love the different imagery and feelings she pulls as she compares this person to all these things that can be represented by the color yellow. It’s a sweet and romantic~ I think the other thing is that these are pretty simple and common things, but they bring out this special and warm feeling. So what seems simple and ordinary, can be something really special. I just personally love the romantic idea of love being seen and felt in subtle ways.

The music video is simple, but cute. I like the aesthetic of the clips being in that vintage looking home movie shots. Again, I also appreciate the idea that the small and simple moments can be seen as something special to the person behind the camera.

I think you’re yellow
You look like 4 o’clock in the afternoon
I think you’re yellow
You taste like the sweetness of honey
I think you’re yellow
You feel like a butterfly on my knee
I think you’re yellow
You smell like sunflowers in bloom

Honey you are my favorite color now
Thinking ’bout you makes me
Write a love song
Funny you and I are drawn together right
For sure

When I’m with you I feel special
Maybe I can show you all my feelings
In a world full of yellow
Sweetly come and kiss me
And you’ll find inside me
Simple and beautiful song
You’re my yellow

I think you’re yellow
You look like the moon and stars
In the night sky
I think you’re yellow
You taste like the sourness of lemonade
I think you’re yellow
You feel like an umbrella in the rain
I think you’re yellow
You smell like dandelions in bloom

Honey you’re my favorite color now
Thinking ’bout you makes me write
A full love song
I think I’m ready to be
Just blown away to you

When I’m with you I feel special
Maybe I can show you all my feelings
In a world full of yellow
Sweetly come and kiss me
And you’ll find inside me
Simple and beautiful song
You’re my yellow

Anyway, that was it. It was a super simple Music Monday post today y’all~ Sorry this is a hella short post. I’m honestly not in the right state of mind so I just wanted to take it easy. Honestly, it’s probably cuz I’ve been hella tired and also so caught up in reading my K-novels…hehe~ Anyway, I hope you enjoyed the track! Did you already know about this track or YELO? Got any other fun artists or songs you’d like to recommend? Also, what comes to your mind when you think of spring?

Take care y’all. Please stay safe and take care of yourself. All jokes and fun aside…Always wash your hands, practice social distancing, and wear a mask! It’s better to be cautious than face irrevocable consequences of health complications or death.


BLACK LIVES MATTER

AS A GROUP OF BIPOC, BAYOG strongly stands with Black Lives Matter. We are all too familiar with the racism that we, our friends, and family have faced on a daily basis. Every life is precious. However, as BIPOC, we also recognize that black people are a group of people that face extreme racism and at a higher risk for their safety. We’ve individually done several donations. Of course, donations to support the cause and support change isn’t the only thing needed. Support for the cause and change also requires conversation and understanding. Make sure to have those conversations. Please remember to be an active supporter, be it through donations, sharing information, and/or conversations and speaking up.

Keep it up fam!

If you can, please consider donating. I’ve donated more than once as well. For one of my donations, I donated through the BTS ARMY x BLM project. I recommend that if you’re unsure of where to donate. This is because the donation will be split amongst several different non-profit organizations. Of course, you can also choose a specific organization(s) if you wish as well. You can find that [HERE].

STOP ASIAN HATE

As an Asian-American, racism, xenophobia, and hate crimes against AAPI isn’t new. It’s always been around. Unfortunately, misinformation and the pandemic has caused an insane surge in racism and xenophobia. There has also been an insane rise in hate crimes. More recently, we’re seeing a surge of hate crimes against the Asian elderly. Particularly in the California and New York areas. Some cases even leading to injuries and even death. The sad thing is that many cases do not get alot of attention, or are just looked passed. It breaks my heart and is cause for concern since it affects our community. Since some of the BAYOG Crew (including myself) are Asian-Americans ourselves, I wanted to use our small platform to help in anyway. Hate, racism, and xenophobia is an ugly thing. We’re friends, in the same community, and against the same social injustices. So be kind and let’s fight these things together.

You can also check the following for more information, ways to help, & to donate:

Please report hate crimes at Stop AAPI Hate:

Volunteer
You can see if your community has a volunteer chaperone or neighborhood watch/patrol program.
Some examples:

Volunteer at any other organizations that provide assistance to Asian-Americans; Particularly the elderly.
Some examples:

  • Heart of Dinner @ NYC, New York| https://www.heartofdinner.org/
    An organization that supports local businesses and provides meals and care packages to the Asian elderly in NYC.
