Amber just released another MV for new music, and fans are especially touched and happy with it!
On December 11, Amber released the MV for her new song, “Ready For The Ride”. The lyrics speak of a love that develops between two friends who spend a night together, making them then question if things could escalate to them being more than just friends.
The song and its accompanying MV has been getting a lot of hot attention, for the MV is heavily-laden with bisexual leanings and symbols, and fans were excited for what it means.
1. Bisexuality Color Scheme
The MV plays with a lot of lighting, and the colors are mostly blue and pink. When the two colors meet, they produce various hues of purple, coating both Amber and Arden Cho (the lead actress), in the mixed colors.
The bisexuality flag is the most well-known symbol of the bisexual community, and features the colors pink (homosexuality) and blue (heterosexuality), with a purple stripe in the middle that symbolizes the union of the two colors (bisexuality). Pink, blue and purple are well-known to be part of the bisexuality color scheme, and Amber brought in this symbol to enunciate who this music is for.
2) Woman As The Main Starring Actress
With the lyrics talking about two friends confused about their feelings for each other, when the main lead starring alongside Amber turned out to be a woman (Arden Cho), fans were more sure than ever that this song was about a budding bisexual relationship. The lyrics are also composed of sentences like:
I hope you didn’t forget
The last night that we spent
Admit it’s more than just friends
I don’t care what they say ’bout me
‘Cause you’re the only one I need to see
They think we can break so easy
But I know the feeling’s gotta be right
The lyrics are a statement that means that Amber doesn’t care if people judge her for being in a relationship with the woman, because she’s the only one she needs.
3) Amber Lying Beaten Up In The Arms Of A Crying Arden Cho
At the end of the MV, we see that Amber is all bruised up and bloody, and Arden Cho holds her in her arms and cries while looking at an unseen assailant. This further implies that Amber was beaten up for loving a woman, and persecuted for her sexual orientation.
Amber later took to Instagram to confirm all theories, and posted a heartfelt caption about how love is the greatest feeling there is, and has taught her so much about herself and others. She then dedicated the music and its video to those who have stood up for those that they love, and to those who have been persecuted for who they love, because love is love, and it is beautiful.

Being able to love & being loved is the greatest feeling. It pushes me to be better & helps me persevere. It’s taught me that there is more to life than what the world teaches us is “important.” This video is dedicated to the people who have stood up for the ones they love and for those who have been persecuted because of WHO they love. Love is love. Love is beautiful.
