MAX gets lost in “Blueberry Eyes” ft SUGA!
MAX released the digital single ”Blueberry Eyes” on the 15 September 2020. The single features Suga of BTS. MAX also released an official music video for the same on his official YouTube channel as well.
The song is co written by MAX, SUGA, Michael Pollack, Roget Chayahed and IMAD-ROY EL-AMINE. Roget Chayahed and IMAD ROYAL have produced the track.
MAX is expecting his first child with his wife Emily and this song holds a lot of emotional meaning to him. He stated the following:
“Bringing this music video to life has been such a special experience. I wanted it to feel as if Disney magically made a baby with Wes Anderson in the world of Colour Vision with every bit of our souls intertwined.~ MAX (via Official YouTube Channel)
Emily is my actual wife and she is really pregnant right now with our first child, so art imitates life in a fun way with this video.
We studied and memorized all of the Korean lyrics to Suga’s incredible and romantic verse and all of the blueberries in the bathtub ended up being reused to create limited edition blueberry dyed blueberry eyes shirts.
This video is a piece of our hearts and I hope it sparks the same magic in you viewing it as it did for us creating it. Thank you to Suga for being so brilliant on this song and more importantly for being a wonderful friend. Much love.”

The music is light yet has a soft sensation to it. The crystal-clear piano and subtle electric layering make the song loop in one’s head. The beginning has a bit of intentional radio disturbance to give the song a pop of retro vibe to it. The genre of the song is pop because of the arrangement choice, but it has a vast spectrum of musical aspects to fit just in one.
The whole song has a swift beat, and SUGA’s rap adds a new horizon to the song. The song finishes with a hushed piano piece.
MAX and his wife Emily are actually portraying their own story through the music video. The video starts with both of them sitting in a bathtub full of blueberries and max proposes Emily. This scene follows by them having breakfast and Emily sees the ultrasound of their baby hidden in between the pancakes.
The next scene cuts to them read the Korean lyrics of the rap and almost as if vowing to each other.
The music video features bright yellow and royal blue contrasting throughout that makes it one of those features that keeps the music video fresh in one’s brain. This video leaves us clinging with a warm feeling in our hearts
The lyrics are the metaphor of being in love. MAX is seen trying to portray the simplicity of the love he is experiencing for his wife right now.
SUGA’s raps about how his beloved has turned his monotonous life into something he looks forward to every day. This transition from “me” to “we” has given him support and strength.
He has also tried to incorporate the name of BTS fans “ARMY” in the song. The part saying you are my light, has “AR” and “MY” in capital letters. He is trying to point out that his beloved, his people are ARMY and that they are his light in the darkness.
