Get You Alone
While this is Baekhyun’s first solo Japanese venture, EXO had released other Japanese tracks before. Their first studio album Countdown dropped in 2018, along with lead single ‘Electric Kiss’. The record went on to receive a gold certification for exceeding 100,000 copies within only ten days of its release.
In May, Baekhyun released his EP Delight. The album, which became one of the best-sellers in Korea at the time, featured lead single ‘Candy’ and was also available in different versions.
‘Candy’ was nominated in Song of the Year and Best Vocal Performance Solo for this year’s Mnet Asian Music Awards, while Baekhyun also received nods for Best Male Artist, Artist of the Year, as well as Best Collaboration and Song of the Year for BOL4’s ‘Leo’.
