In the poignant visual, Taeyeon struggles to let go of a painful relationship as she rewinds and idealises past memories as part of a fictional play. The lines between her imagined and true selves begin to blur, and her unhappiness begins to show on stage.
“You call me crazy, so what (ah ah, ah ah) / ‘Cause I can’t control myself (ah ah, ah ah) / In front of you, everything goes out of control / It feels like everything is going to explodes,” she sings on the heartfelt chorus.
‘Can’t Control Myself’ marks Taeyeon’s first solo release in over six months, following the disco-pop track ‘Weekend’. The new song is set to be part of the idol’s upcoming, as-yet-untitled full-length album.
Alongside fellow Girls’ Generation member Hyoyeon, Taeyeon recently made her debut as part of GOT The Beat, the first sub-unit of SM Entertainment’s new supergroup Girls On Top. The seven-member unit also includes soloist BoA, Red Velvet’s Seulgi and Wendy, and aespa’s Winter and Karina.
Earlier this month, GOT The Beat officially released the song ‘Step Back’ on streaming services worldwide. Prior to that, GOT The Beat had performed ‘Step Back’ at SM’s online concert SMTOWN LIVE 2022: SMCU EXPRESS@KWANGYA, which took place on January 1.
In other news, ENHYPEN have returned with a powerful new single called ‘Blessed-Cursed’. The release was accompanied by a vibrant visual for the single, which features the members in a series of stunning individual sets.
‘Blessed-Cursed’ is a cut from ‘Dimension : Answer’, the repackaged version of their October album ‘Dimension : Dilemma’, which they had released last October alongside its lead single ‘Tamed-Dashed’.
