    The collaboration, along with its music video, was officially released on Thursday.

    While the Thai (G)I-DLE member has previously contributed songs to K-drama OSTs (original soundtracks), such as 2020’s “Getaway” for the MBN series “My Dangerous Wife,” this is her first official solo single.

    As for Anne-Marie, she is no newcomer to K-pop. In August 2022, she collaborated with SEVENTEEN on a new version of their single “_WORLD.”
