IU changes 'Red Queen' lyrics at recent concert to pay tribute to Sulli

AKP STAFF

IU is reported to have changed the lyrics to her song "Red Queen" at a recent concert to pay tribute to Sulli, who passed away last month

At IU's 'Love Poem' concerts in Gwangju on November 2-3, fans noted she changed her lyrics to her 2015 song "Red Queen" featuring Zion.T, which she previously revealed was inspired by Sulli's self-portrait. In place of Zion.T's rap, she revealed the lyrics below:

"Fill up a black martini
Fill up the glass for the queen without pity
Made her eyes so thinly bloodshot
Will she smile at the world one more time?
Hey, don't bother queen no more
Please don't wake queen up no more
Red queen's going back go on
My queen keep it up go on
Fill up a black martini
Fill up the glass for the queen without pity
A bouquet of flowers in the dark
I give her lullaby bye bye bye
Bye, my majesty"

Listen to IU's original version of "Red Queen" and her tribute version below.

  1. Sulli
  2. IU
  3. RED QUEEN

It is sad to see Jieun paying tribute to a friend for a second time during her concert. Both were gone too young. I hope she is doing alright and have people to rely on.

I think the most beautiful thing about IU is not her singing, her looks or her acting. It's her heart. Her pure friendship with Sulli is just somethimg so untainted and unrestrained.
