San E has released the single ‘달고나 (Sugar and Me)‘ together with Raina yesterday.
Exactly two years after the two charmed everyone with ‘A Midsummer Night’s Sweetness‘ in 2014, the duo has returned with another tooth-achingly sweet track.
Their second project single ‘달고나 (Sugar and Me)’ is an R&B hiphop track with a more refined and mature sound than its predecessor. While the latter was about the fresh feelings of two people falling in love, in ‘Sugar & Me’ the two are now in a sweet, loving relationship. San E scores with his typical witty storytelling which is perfected by Raina’s honey-sweet voice.
The song was co-produced by XEPY, San E’s long-time colleague with who he has worked amongst others on ‘이별식탁 (Break-Up Dinner)’, ‘Rap Genius’, and ‘나 왜이래 (Why Am I Like This)’.
The music video which features Kim Doyeon of popular girl group I.O.I was directed by DIGIPEDI.
