Ready for some heart-rending content, EXO-Ls? Chanyeol unveiled a special song cover just in time for the release of his new movie The Box!

EXO’s Chanyeol keeps on proving his great musical prowess as he releases a special song cover, featuring the timeless song “Without You.”

On March 25, the idol dropped his majestic rendition of the song on EXO’s official YouTube channel as well as SNS accounts. 

British band Badfinger originally sang the heartfelt and powerful ballad. It was later on revived by other famous artists such as Harry Nilsson and Mariah Carey. 

“Without You” expresses feelings of deep love, sorrow and regret. Moreover, it talks about having the courage to tell your loved ones how much they mean you before it is too late.


In the minimalist-themed clip, Chanyeol showcased his innocent and sweet visuals in a mood filled with gloom. While sporting his signature clean look, the charming idol revealed his soothing and honey-like vocals. You would not believe that he is a rapper in his group if you are not an avid fan.

Delivering a spectacular performance, he was able to capture the main theme of the song through his awe-inspiring delivery. His warm and sincere emotions are also felt all throughout the whole clip.

Proving he is indeed an all-rounder, Chanyeol also let his own musical color shine in his version. As he creates a beautiful melody with his graceful and soft guitar-playing skills, the idol is a sight to behold despite just merely sitting across a microphone.

Through his unique and mesmerizing tone, the multitalented artist transformed the track into a lullaby that can heal the souls and hearts of spectators. When he reached the middle of the song, Chanyeol also made EXO-Ls swoon over his effortless high notes.

The idol’s genuineness and warmness are all that can be felt as the song reaches its end. Indeed, no one is doing it like Park Chanyeol.

This particular cover is extra special since the track is part of the official OST of Chanyeol’s newest movie The Box. It tells the story of Jihoon, the character played by the dazzling artist, who is afraid to perform in front of a huge crowd. Later on, he realized that he can only let others hear his voice by placing himself in a box.


Other cover songs such as Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy,” Coldplay’s “Sky Full of Stars,” Chet Baker’s “My Funny Valentine” and Pharell Williams’ “Happy” are also in the OST’s lineup.

Moreover, it also included an original song created solely for the film titled “Break Your Box.” In fact, Chanyeol also surprised fans with a separate music video for this specific release.

As of current writing, the clip featuring “Without You” has already amassed 447,000 YouTube views. Meanwhile, the MV for “Break Your Box” already has 317,000 views on the same platform.

Chanyeol is now preparing for his upcoming military enlistment scheduled on March 29. Moreover, his newest movie scored the No. 1 spot at the Korean box office, a day since its release.
