STAYC have returned with a vibrant new music video for ‘RUN2U’, the lead single of their sophomore mini-album ‘YOUNG-LUV.COM’.
In the brand-new visual, STAYC perform the choreography to the new track, dressed in glitter-accented outfits. Each member features in her own stunning solo scene, from Yoon riding a motorbike through a futuristic tunnel, to Isa breaking out of a giant snow globe. “So I’ll run to you / If there’s a line, I’ll cross it over and over / If it hurts, it’s okay / I’ll run to you,” they sing on the chorus.
Aside from its title track, ‘YOUNG-LUV.COM’ also feature five other new tracks, two of which were both produced and written by High Up Entertainment heads and hitmaker duo Black Eyed Pilseung. Other writers credited on the girl group’s new record include frequent EXID and Apink collaborators BEOMxNANG on ‘247’ and ‘Butterfly’.
First announced earlier this month through a cryptic motion teaser, ‘YOUNG-LUV.COM’ is set to arrive about five months after STAYC’s first mini-album ‘Stereotype’, which was released in September 2021. That project had been the follow-up to their viral breakout hit ‘ASAP’, which dropped in April.
STAYC was named one of NME’s 100 Emerging Artists of 2022, where they were praised for their distinctive sound and “sheer pop optimism”. Closer to home, the girl group had also taken home a trophy for Best Performance at the 31st Seoul Music Awards, and a Digital Song Bonsang for ‘ASAP’ at the 36th Golden Disc Awards last month.
