EXO’s Baekhyun and rapper Loco got together on the motivational “Young,” released today (Aug. 31). As the second single out of SM Entertainment and SK Telecom's new digital singles project Station x 0, the groovy electro-pop track urges youth to pursue their dreams.
The song revels in the vocalist’s expressive tone and Loco’s rhythmic style as it critiques societal norms, such as education, that make "Young" people turn away from their own distinct paths. "Find the way from you want from today on," Baekhyun sings. "Let yourself be more free, yeah do some foolish imagining/ you are still so young." Loco serves up similarly-themed verses, rapping about how his decisions to veer off the straight and narrow have led him to where he is.
A cinematically-shot music video released on the same day ties into the song’s motivational lyrics, with the pair presiding over -- and eventually overturning -- scenes in spaces that evoke the feeling of classrooms and assembly lines.
