Groovy Londoners PREP have joined up with a K-pop star and a Korean indie artist for their new song. “Don’t Look Back,” a jazzy R&B song that overflows with lush synths, features a verse from Monsta X’s Shownu and backing vocals and crisp guitar from Se So Neon’s So!YoON! It is the first time PREP is working with either artist.
The woozy collaboration, written and produced by PREP, came about due to the act’s sizable fandom throughout Asia, and Shownu himself sought out the band to work together. On it, the K-pop star's silky English tone counters singer Tom Havelock’s ruminating falsetto as they sing about the realization that you may not be the only person in someone’s life. According to Havelock, the lush, dreamy song is about, “Jealousy. Looking for hidden meanings. The heavy pause after his name gets mentioned.”
