The rapper, who wrote the lyrics for “Turn It Up” and “Special“, tweeted what he wanted to express with his lyrics in “Special”, saying, “I think even the [scariest relationships have beauty inside of them]. I wrote the lyrics to Lee Hi’s ‘Special’ with that thought in mind. To those experiencing painful love, have strength! #LEEHI.”
“Special” is about longing for a past love despite being in pain. In the chorus, Lee sings, “You are so special to me,” expressing just what Tablo meant.
So far, Lee Hi has released 5 of her songs from ‘First Love’, and on the 21st, she’ll be releasing the rest of them along with her second title track “Rose“.
