TREASURE‘s Bang Yedam released his solo debut song “WAYO” on June 5, 2020.
Not only was it a hit among his fellow YG Entertainment artists, but it also climbed within the Top 100 chart of MelOn, a notable achievement for a debut.
Explaining the history of the song in an online broadcast, Bang Yedam revealed that “WAYO” was a fateful coincidence.
He apparently sang the demo years ago with many artists recording it since then. None of them were the right fit for it, however, and it somehow found its way back to him—not as a demo, but as his solo song!
When I first received the song, the demo was a very exciting tropical music. I didn’t know it would be my song. It find it really amazing.
– Bang Yedam
“WAYO” is further notable for being composed by renowned producer Future Bounce, WINNER’s Kang Seungyoon, and Andrew Choi. The lyrics were written by Kang Seungyoon, AKMU’s Lee Chanhyuk, and Future Bounce.
