TAEYEON MV/Song Review: “Make Me Love You”

South Korean singer Taeyeon’s latest single “Make Me Love You” comes from the deluxe version of her first album entitled My Voice.

The music video for “Make Me Love You” is all about light. The way light moves across a window, or filters in from above, or bursts from a bulb. Light, aside from Taeyeon, is the main character in this video. Plentiful camera zooms and editing tricks are also in play.  The flower floor/ceiling and Taeyeon looking down at herself are the most notable moments. That said, and despite some beautiful visuals, it’s a video I would watch again only for the audio. Isn’t it frustrating when a great song gets a boring video? So lets move onto the great song! My heart swelled from a beat and vocals that would make Kelly Clarkson tip her hat. The chorus is anthemic and subtly builds in power each time it is heard. Not to mention it’s completely in English. “Make Me Love You” is the most satisfying song Taeyeon has released this year.
