K-pop boy band ENHYPEN released their Spotify K-Pop ON! (온) Single featuring their cover of “I Need U” by Grammy-nominated and fellow HYPE group BTS. 

Produced and released as part of Spotify’s K-Pop ON! (온) First Crush campaign, the song is the first of three Spotify-exclusive covers by a stellar line-up of K-Pop artists, each paying homage to the “sunbaes” (senior artists) who ignited their passion for the genre.

Spotify’s K-Pop ON! (온) First Crush campaign calls on fans around the world to unite over their shared love for K-Pop music, and the artists who started it all.

It was launched in celebration of the anniversary of K-Pop ON! (온), Spotify’s global K-Pop flagship playlist dedicated to giving listeners a platform to discover and tune in to the best from the genre. 

Since 2014, the playlist has since been “saved” by over 5.3 million Spotify users worldwide and garnered billions of streams for Korean artists.

In ENHYPEN’s cover of “I Need U,” laidback acoustic instrumentals replace the electronic synth sounds from the original version for an Afro-rhythm twist. While presenting a more mellow version of the track, the members’ performance delivers the emotions of the lyrics with sincerity and showcases the group’s unique color and charm.

“This Spotify K-Pop ON! (온) Single means so much to us. In addition to bringing ENGENEs (our fans) a new track, this was our chance to tell the stories of our beginnings with K-Pop through a song loved by the members,” said ENHYPEN.
