Chanyeol sings about the seasons in ‘SSFW’
EXO member Park Chanyeol has made his solo debut with the song ‘SSFW‘ (Spring Summer Fall Winter) released through SM Station 3.
The song is (as promised) an upbeat pop ballad which has a lazy, hazy opening which continues with a relaxed, laid-back vibe running through. The electric guitar, synths and drums provide the groove that supports but never drowns out the vocal. This style suits Chanyeol‘s resonant and mellow vocal style perfectly and allows his singing and rap lines to meld into each other seamlessly. The track is the perfect blend of cool and warm as it meanders through the track.
The song was recorded in Korean, Chinese and Japanese. The lyrics compare relationships to the changing of the seasons.
The accompanying music video is as warm and laid-back as the song and the beautiful scenery brings to mind the changing of the seasons.
Soon after its release ‘SSFW‘ topped the iTunes Album Charts in 14 different countries and was ranked #1 on QQ Music, China’s biggest music streaming site.
