Yesterday, May 6, IU x BTS member SUGA finally released their collaborative track “Eight,” after a couple of teaser drops! “Eight” was composed, produced, and sang by the two artists. In a V Live broadcast, Suga revealed, “I like it. The production process was very smooth so there wasn’t a lot of back-and-forths. I wrote the beat and the melody came quickly after that.”
In an interview, IU said that she decided to work with Suga to deliver music that feels different from the music style that was previously presented to fans.
Aside from the song itself, the MV’s animated futuristic concept is probably why most fans are excited about this since the first teaser was released last April 28, as it imposed a strong message about love and friendship. The song expresses the story of a 28-year-old, which also reflects the two artists’ age as well.
And of course, to ARMYs, what do you think with Yoongi’s rap verse? Do you love it like we do? Tweet us @kpopchannel_tv! 😊
