BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon reinterpreted the iconic song of rock and roll’s king, Elvis Presley.
On July 18th, G-Dragon uploaded a tribute video to “Can’t Help Falling in Love” to his official YouTube channel. Baz Luhrmann directs a new arrangement and performance of Elvis Presley‘s songs, with new vocals.
The charm of G-Dragon‘s rendition of “Can’t Help Falling in Love” was distinct from the original. G-Dragon‘s voice, which seemed to softly memorize to the accompaniment of the piano, created a dreamlike atmosphere.
“Can’t Help Falling in Love” by G-Dragon, which changed to a rock band sound with a faster rhythm in the middle of the song, displayed a different allure than the original.
The intense drum beat, the pounding electric guitar playing, Elvis Presley‘s photos, and G-Dragon‘s free-spirited gestures all harmonize with one another, adding sensual significance to the meeting of the two icons.
Even though G-Dragon‘s “Can’t Help Falling in Love” music video was released at midnight, it has already amassed 1.25 million cumulative views on social media and YouTube in just 12 hours and is receiving explosive responses from fans around the globe.
Fans are responding enthusiastically, leaving comments such as “The music makes my heart race,” “I cry when I hear a masterpiece reborn with G-Dragon’s emotions,” and “I thought about G-Dragon’s life while watching ‘Elvis’“.
On the other hand, Baz Luhrmann’s film “Elvis” was recently released and is receiving positive reviews. In this film, the unknown singer “Elvis” (Austin Butler) was driving a truck when he met “Tom Parker” (Tom Hanks), who recognized him at a glance, and the music and stage that heated the world until he became a legend, depicted a life that was even hotter.
