CHEN’s Best-ever Spring Song that Evokes Sensitivity! Title Song, ‘Beautiful goodbye’
The title song, ‘Beautiful goodbye’, is a ballad song that gives a strong impression with delicate piano performance. The lyrics depicts a scene where a man recalls the beautiful memory on the first day he met her while preparing for a parting after feeling that she is losing interest in him as time passes by. The sad mood of the song mesmerizes ears as the plaintive voice of CHEN blends into it.
‘Flower’ sends a comforting message that wishes a wounded heart to be healed as though the flower blooms again in spring after winter and CHEN participated in the writing of the lyrics. ‘Sorry not sorry’ features the combination of piano and strings and the lyrics make the song more charming by telling a story in a calm voice about man who ended up telling her to break up as he failed to stop the growing rift between him and her.
‘Love words’ is an urban & soul song that sounds modern and new, sending the words of love to comfort those who are exhausted inside. ‘I’ll be there’ is an emotional song that depicted the wish to be remembered in someone else’s memory for a long time. ‘Portrait of you’ is a pop ballad song that combines the beautiful piano melody with orchestra performance and delicate vocals. All six songs will be a full experience of CHEN’s warm music and voice.
