The best things in life are always unexpected.
Late last night (02/05), NCT's Taeyong dropped a surprise single featuring EXO vocalist and fellow SuperM member Baekhyun that was released exclusively via SoundCloud. Entitled 'Monroe', the track was written and composed by Taeyong alongside hip-hop producer SQUAR.

'Monroe' comes as the latest in a string of SoundCloud-released tracks from Taeyong. Previously, he dropped 'Dark Clouds', 'GTA', and 'Blue'.
The track also follows Baekhyun's latest Japanese mini-album Bambi that was released last March.
