Choi Ye Na wants to make you smile with upbeat debut MV 'SMILEY' featuring BIBI

AKP STAFF

Choi Ye Na has officially made her solo debut!

On January 17 KST, the former IZ*ONE member unveiled her solo debut mini album 'ˣ‿ˣ (SMiLEY)' featuring title track "SMILEY." 

The upbeat track, featuring R&B star BIBI, encourages everyone to throw out negativity and instead face the world with a smile. In the music video, Choi Ye Na plays the role of a superhero named 'Smiley Yena,' whose superpower is to make others around her smile. BIBI enters the music video in a playful villain role; however, her sadness-starting powers are no match for Smiley Yena's positivity.

Meanwhile, 'ˣ‿ˣ (SMiLEY)' features five songs in total: "Before Anyone Else," title track "SMILEY," "LxxK 2 U," "Pretty Boys," and "Vacay."

The song reminds me of Disney TV shows.

I love Yena, but I couldn't help thinking - A Korean artist under a Chinese company aiming for a Japanese audience while watching this, lol. Anyway, the song was bouncy, but nothing really stood out. Maybe I'll warm up to it later, like with Wa Da Da.
