In the vibrant visual, Choi is a gamer who guides an avatar of herself through a playground filled with whimsical mascots, eventually stopping at a shooting game inspired by the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise.
“Mix and match as you like / Airplane in my hands / No matter where you’re going or what you’re going to do, get connected / This star is too narrow to contain me,” Choi sings.
Apart from the title track, ‘Smartphone’ includes four other songs – two of which credit Choi as lyrics co-writer. The idol is credited as one of the writers for B-sides ‘Make U Smile’ and ‘WithOrWithout’, as well as title track ‘Smartphone’. Other tracks on the record include ‘Lemon-Aid’ and U’.
‘Smartphone’ arrives nearly eight months after the singer’s solo debut with ‘Smiley’ in January, which was led by the single of the same title. That single, which included vocals from South Korean singer-songwriter BIBI, made it to NME’s list of the 15 best K-pop songs of 2022 so far.
