N.Flying is another group who has made a very busy year so far. They kicked off 2018 with Hot Potato and returned in May with How R U Today?. Last week, the band returned with a special single which begins their Fly High Project, where the band aims to release a new song every two months for a period of a year. I personally apologise for the delay for this review, as everytime I get around to starting this review, I get tired or am busy with other stuff. But here it is, almost a week later.
This isn’t the first time N.Flying has released a ballad. Some of their earlier works have been of the ballad kind, such as Lonely. Like A Flower is a rather nice ballad. Unfortunately, it isn’t one of those mind-blowing ballads that I would search up and listen to it on its own. Rather, having it random appearing on a playlist will be more impactful. That is because the instrumental is very soft and you would want to stop for a second to appreciate the calmness. I personally like that about this track. With a ballad this slow, I kind of expected only vocals, so I genuinely surprised to see some slow rapping in the song. And for the vocals, they were spectacular. Some people may say this is a typical ballad but I can assure it is not.
For 3/4 of the video, a black and white filter was used. I don’t know why they decided to go with colour at the end but I guess it was done to add some impact and match the peak of the song. I also liked how some of the scenes were slowed down, making it quite fitting for the song. All of this, along with the acting by the members, you can get a sense of how emotional the song is. Personally, I thought the music video was good but it took on board very typical components of a music video for a slow song.
