South Korean rapper-songwriter Zico recently topped charts at home with the release of his new single “SoulMate,” a collaborative track with popular songstress IU. He sat down to discuss the song and his work ethic with Billboard in a recent video interview.
“'SoulMate' is someone you could meet, or never get to meet in the lifetime,” Zico says about the song’s title. “Some might not have realized that they met, some might be meeting one soon, and all the possible situations that we could encounter is the message I wanted to say. I tried not to be too [detailed] in the lyrics. If a song had a lot of messages in it, the fans might think it has 'too much information.' I leaned toward portraying a situational scene.”
