Today, NCT sub-group WayV released their fourth mini album, Phantom , via SM Entertainment . Watch the video for the title track “Phantom” HERE .
“Phantom” is a hip-hop-based dance-pop song with avant-garde elements, smooth vocal harmonies, and magnificent string sound. The lyrics compare adversity and hardship to a phantom, expressing one’s will to overcome the phantom instead of being controlled by it.
The EP consists of a total of eight tracks, including six brand new songs and two previously released unit singles – “ Back To You ” by KUN and XIAOJUN and “ Low Low ” by TEN and YANGYANG – which were praised by global music fans and critics, and covered by the likes of NME, Hypebae , and more.
Ahead of the release, the group shared a special track video for the progressive R&B hip-hop song “ Diamonds Only .” Elsewhere on the album, the medium-tempo R&B song “ Good Life ” depicts a story of moving toward a beautiful life, and the impressive pop ballad song “ Broken Love ” compares time to a puzzle. The track video for “ Good Life ” will be released on January 8, and the live clip for “ Broken Love ” on January 15.
