Key and Taeyeon display their mournful harmony with a heartmelting duet that shook the K-pop industry!

The whole entertainment scene surely was at the edge of their seats when the collaboration of SHINee’s Key and Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon was announced. Seeing the two was a familiar image, perhaps, as the aces are actively showing off their unrivaled chemistry on tvN’s Amazing Saturday.

In specific, Key has announced his solo comeback after being active with SHINee for “Don’t Call Me” and “Superstar” earlier this year. Key-ro (Key’s nickname from Amazing Saturday) is returning as a solo three years since the release of his repackaged album I Wanna Be. The said album was presented to the public months before he enlisted in the military in March 2019.

Combining their sentimental sound was heaven-sent as “Hate that…” displayed such wonderful harmonization from these two artists from legendary groups. In particular, “Hate that…” is an R&B genre song with an impressive tender guitar melody and sophisticated rhythm. The track flawlessly expressed the selfish hopes of a person from an ex-lover to refrain from being happy.

Listening to the song was a breath of fresh air as the two delicately convey the feelings of handling an unfortunate separation. It was also impressive how their different tones and singing styles matched perfectly together, resulting in majestic harmony.

Especially, the second chorus where Key and Taeyeon joined their mournful voices were absolutely marvelous, to say the least.

“And I hate that I hate that you’re happy without me / And I pray and I pray / I want you to be painful as much as I do baby / I can feel the breakup falling apart alone”

Meanwhile, global Shawol and Sone can now stream to Key’s pre-release single “Hate that…” featuring Taeyeon on various online music sites and through SMTOWN’s official YouTube channel. Further details regarding Key’s upcoming mini-album will also be revealed in the following days.
