“Blue & Grey” is a slow pop song combined with the feel of a ballad that discussed anxiety, burnout, depression and unhappiness due to the pandemic. The song was orginally in only English but was changed to be a mic of both Korean and English in the final cut. Many critics have claimed “Blue &Grey” to be the standout track on the entire “Be” album.
