SHINee’s Key enlisted in the South Korean military for his mandatory two years of service on March 4. But before he left, the K-pop idol released I Wanna Be as a parting gift for fans.
The 13-track album is a repackaging of the singer’s debut full-length, Face. The LP includes all ten original songs, alongside three new ones: the title track, which features (G)I-DLE’s Soyeon, “Show Me” and the SM STATION single “Cold.” A video for “I Wanna Be” also accompanied the project’s release.
In the clip for the dance pop tune, Key explores a neon-colored world, wandering down hallways and around geometric rooms. “Inside your heart is where I wanna be / Think of me when you’re feeling alone / Even before this song ends / Always inside your heart is where I wanna be,” he harmonizes with Soyeon on the chorus.
