aespa – Savage

Continuing their unparalleled universe from their debut single, ‘Black Mamba‘, the title track, ‘Savage‘ focuses on the fantastical, futuristic elements, inspired by the movie franchise, ‘The Matrix‘. The song focuses on their powerful side as they join hands with their avatars from the metaverse, ‘ae’. The stunning members along with ae, pose as warriors as they head to fight the monster ‘Black Mamba’. The song is an empowering anthem, lined with Trap hooks over dynamic beats and a dominant bass line with an addictive chorus. The members sing about how they can crush their opponent with their savage nature, focusing on their singing forte. Hoping to bring more diversity to their musical imprint, the members wish the album is well received as their universe expands.

The album also features a collaboration with American singer-songwriter Hayley Kiyoko, who is credited as a composer for the tracks, ‘Lucid Dream‘ and ‘Yeppi Yeppi‘. Seeing the tremendous success of the album, fans cannot wait to see more from them already!
