This is one collaboration we never expected to see!
Xia Junsu (준수) has released a new track, titled “Cake Love”, and it is a collaboration with YG Entertainment’s sub-label HIGHGRND. While there is currently no music video for the track, the lyric video was made public at midnight today (Tuesday, 20th December).
Produced by The Black Skirts (검정치마), an one-man indie rock band who is signed under HIGHGRND, the track showcases Junsu’s soothing vocals. While the singer usually performs in upbeat tracks and utilises his higher registers, “Cake Love” shows us that the singer is capable of more. It is not what fans are used to, but that isn’t necessary a bad thing ;)
The lyric video is simple, but exudes an air of confusion and sadness. Lyrics such as “Now even when I go far, don’t worry too much” and “Wherever you are is our house” are also peppered in the track. While we can’t understand Korean, the melancholic melody explains the mood of the track well enough.
On a sadder note, Xia Junsu is slated to enlist for his mandatory military service after the end of his “Death Note” musical. He will be starting his conscription on 9th February, alongside BIGBANG rapper T.O.P.
