Queendom is the title track from Red Velvet’s ninth mini-album. It’s a straightforward dance-pop song that is atypical of the current style of music that SM is releasing these days.
A song such as Queendom has a lot of uplifting energy and overwhelming positivity in its lyrics, so putting a different twist on it without losing that aspect of the song was a challenge.
There are several directions one can go with this song, several of which I heard executed to varying degrees of success while searching online for official and unofficial remixes to listen to what others have done.
What I decided to do with my remix is to dip my toes back into the pool of pop-influenced 2-step/ and four on the floor style garage. Taking the lessons learned from past attempts in these genres, I constructed something to give the song some edge without losing its uniqueness.
