WayV just released a music video for ‘Love Talk’

Just as fans were recovering from Take Over the Moon, WayV released a music video for the song “Love Talk.” The music video features English lyrics and shows all seven members of WayV wearing white. The most seductive song on the album, the music video effectively ended all WayV fans.

“‘I KNOW YOU DON’T SPEAK MY LANGUAGE BUT I LOVE THE WAY SHE’S TALKING TO ME’ every international fans can relate. #WayV_LoveTalk,” one fan tweeted.

“I love the message of Love Talk. In my interpretation, it’s a song for us— fans. Even though we don’t speak the same language, somehow we understand e/o. Our connection is beyond the language, something no one can take away from us. It’s the language of love. #WayV_LoveTalk,” another fan tweeted.

‘Moonwalk’ is the lead single of WayV’s album

The lead single from WayV’s new C-pop album is called “Moonwalk.” The song and music video start with a soft piano melody as the seven members of WayV are seen separately. As the members join together and dance with dynamic choreography, the song intensifies, as does the interstellar elements surrounding the group.

Lucas sits on the top of a bus as meteors fall overhead. Ten dances in a space ship, unaffected by the lack of gravity that causes his jacket to float in the air. Hendery controls a drone and the other members are seen in different cosmic settings.

“sm: how much beauty do you want to show in this mv wayv: yes #MoonwalkWithWayV #WayV_MoonWalk,” a Twitter user wrote.

‘Take Over the Moon’ has six songs

WayV’s EP Take Over the Moon has six songs. Take Over the Moon is the group’s third EP and second mini-album. In addition to “Moonwalk” and “Love Talk,” “Yeah Yeah Yeah,” “King of Hearts,” “Face to Face,” and “We go nanana” round out the album.

For two of the songs, WayV splits up into units. The rappers, Winwin, Lucas, Hendery, and Yangyang, perform “King of Hearts. “Face to Face” is performed by WayV’s vocalists, Kun, Ten, and Xiaojun.

During a livestream on Lucas’ Instagram account, each member of WayV said their favorite song from the album. Xiaojun likes “Face to Face” and Kun likes that song as well as “Moonwalk.” Lucas and Winwin both like “Yeah Yeah Yeah” the most. Ten likes both “Yeah Yeah Yeah” and “Love Talk.” Hendery prefers “King of Hearts” and YangYang did not get a chance to say his favorite because the members were too busy joking around.
