The rapper appears on a new remix of “Crying Over You,” the UK electro-soul duo’s single that features London singer Beka and currently boasts more than 10 million plays on Spotify. Released on Wednesday, March 27, RM delivers a new, self-written bridge to add to the track’s emotionally reflective mood. He raps in English, “We thought we gave each other a whole world but turns out that we didn’t know such a thing / Guess life’s like this, shit happens / And we look for the magic but / Good things always come to an end.”
It’s the second time HONNE has linked up with RM after previously producing the track “Seoul” that appeared on the 24-year-old’s Mono. mixtape that hit No. 26 on the Billboard 200 to become the highest-charting album by a Korean solo singer.
HONNE shared in a statement that they always envisioned a rapper on the song and say RM’s lyrics were perfect for the song’s message. “We always wanted a rapper over ‘Crying Over You,’ so it was great when RM was up for featuring on the track,” the band said. “The part he’s written has continued to explore, and add to, the emotion of our original version.”
“I’m so excited for the track release,” RM added in his own statement. “It was a pleasure to work with such a great band like HONNE. They helped produce ‘Seoul’ on my playlist Mono. and I’m really glad that I could be a part of their work this time.”
Previous to this remix, RM recently collaborated with the likes of Fall Out Boy (and helped their “Champions (Remix)” rise to new peaks on the Rock charts), as well as Tiger JK (“Timeless” went Top 5 on World Digital Song Sales chart).
