SVT HIPHOPTEAM drops Trauma MV for Before Al1 project
On October 1, 2017, SEVENTEEN continued to bless our ears with their sub-unit project’s release. Following previously shared SVT Leaders Unit’s Change Up Music Video, which marked the Chapter 2 of 2017 SEVENTEEN Project. Hip-Hop unit, which includes members S.Coups, Wonwoo, Mingyu and Vernon dropped an MV titled Trauma.
The HIPHOPTEAM’s release is called 2017 Seventeen Project Chapter 0.5 BEFORE Al1. It is a prequel to their Al1 album, which was released earlier this year.
In Trauma Music Video each member is seen in their own setting. They convey their feelings through their individual rap verses. Meanwhile, Mingyu sings the chorus with his sexy raspy vocals. The music video and the track itself has a rather dark concept and feel to it, compared to SEVENTEEN’s usual content. Trauma single is a mix of hip-hop and trap music genres.
Meaning of SVT HIPHOPTEAM Trauma Lyrics
The lyrics focus on members talking about their traumatic experiences on the way to success. Mingyu sings about a trauma he can’t forget and that got him sick. Then, Vernon raps about dropping out during the second year of middle school to pursue his career. He mentions feeling lonely and being stuck in a fantasy, hoping it becomes reality. S.Coups describes something similar to a stage fright. He talks about forgetting how to do it (rap?), when the light is on him and the stage shrinks to 1 square meter. Wonwoo talks about having doubts and questioning the meaning of his existence. Also not knowing where this trauma will get him and needing a hand to hold. Quite dramatic, SVT HIPHOPTEAM.
Furthermore, SVT Performance Team will release an MV on October 9. And SVT Vocal Team will be releasing their Music Video on October 16, so stay tuned for that.
Also, it was recently reported by OSEN, that SEVENTEEN is planning to release an album as a whole group on November 6. This will be group’s second full studio album after Love & Letter, which was released in April of 2016th.
