INVU is the title track from Taeyeon’s third studio album of the same name. The original version is a mid-tempo EDM/Pop song about unrequited love. Style-wise, this is quite different from the type of music she is known to perform as a soloist.
Since the song is very close to the type of music I produce, I figured this would be something I could work with. So rather than stick with the pop feel of the original, I went with something that emphasized the melancholy feeling of the lyrics.
So that meant a slower-paced rhythm section accompanied by subtle, effect-heavy pads, leads, a soft piano, and acoustic guitar. The biggest change I made was during the second half of the chorus, where I changed the bass line pattern and melody.
