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.
