Hyolyn bares her soul on new song, “You Know Better”

The first from her ‘xhyolynx’ project.

Hyolyn has returned with “You Know Better,” the first single from her xhyolynx project.

The powerhouse vocalist gets in her feelings on the mid-tempo tropical house song, which features lyrics written by the singer. “I wanted to trust you until the end / I could’ve given you everything of me / I was wrong, I just needed a friend / I guess you didn’t,” she belts. Hyolyn also co-composed the track with Michel Schulz and Melanie Fontana, who both co-wrote BTS’ “Boy With Luv” and TXT’s “Crown.”

The single dropped alongside a stripped-back video which opened with an interview excerpt from Hyolyn: “Over the past year, I learned and experienced a lot, but the biggest change occurred within myself. I [used to] lack courage and confidence, [and] had much more fear. I wanted to avoid and run away from those feelings in every situation. [I know] there’ll be more pressure ahead, so I hope I can endure better.”


“You Know Better” is Hyolyn’s first release since last August’s “Bae,” which capped off her Set Up Time trilogy.
