SHINee‘s Key has a favorite song on his new album, and he shared the touching reason why it’s so important to him!
Key recently made a comeback with his album and title track “Bad Love”, and in a recent interview, talked about his song, artistry, and more!
From all the amazing songs in his album, Key revealed that he had one song that was incredibly special to him, and shared that “Eighteen (End Of My World)” is a song he’d want to dedicate to his younger self.
[‘Eighteen’] is what I want to say to 18-year-old Key. Something like: ‘You go boy, you can do whatever you want. You’re going to fail sometimes, but don’t get hurt from that. You’ll be Key. So don’t worry’.
Through the song, Key reminisced about his high school days, and wrote the song as a means to comfort and cheer for his young self.
The song is really bright, but when I was writing the lyrics, it wasn’t really [pleasurable], you know what I mean? I keep thinking about when I was really young, so I was kind of sad, very sentimental.
I worked really hard in high school, so I wanted to cheer [that Key] up.
All throughout his hardships during his younger days, he never gave up, and is killing it now! You can listen to “Eighteen (End Of My World)” here:
