Summer Magic

  • I. Introduction

    Red Velvet released its seventh extended play (EP) and second special summer release, Summer Magic, on August 6, 2018. The EP featured 7 songs that reflect a portion of Red Velvet's unique musical approach. It typically includes a blend of "red" (primarily bright pop) and "velvet" (more r&b and ballads) songs. However, this EP, marketed as a special summer release, featured primarily "red" songs. The iTunes release also included a special podcast audio track "Red Radio." The album was released physically in 6 versions, with a standard version and a special version for each member.

    The EP and its lead track debuted at the top of all of the Korean music charts, achieving a "perfect all-kill," including the Gaon Album, Gaon Digital and Gaon Download Chart. All of the EP's songs charted in the Digital Chart except the English version of "Bad Boy". All the tracks charted on the Gaon Download Chart. Red Velvet also had its best US sales, debuting at #3 on the Billboard World Albums and Top Heatseekers Album Charts. It also charted at #21 on the Digital Albums and #91 on the Top Album Sales chart. The album also charted in France, the UK, Australia and Japan.
