K-pop soloist Chung Ha released “Love U,” a vivacious tropical house song, on Wednesday (July 19).
Her third single since going solo last year after her time in temporary girl group I.O.I came to an end, the breezy “Love U” is guided by fizzy synths and bright melodies as Chung Ha expresses her desire. “I just wanna, wanna love you,” she croons during the chorus.
Upon the song’s release, the 22-year-old addressed the similarities between “Love U” and her debut single, last year’s “Why Don’t You Know,” both of which feature bright tropical synths, light use of strings, and tinny beats. According to the Korea Herald, she said the new song is more reflective of her girlish side than the charisma she showcased with her forthright debut song.
