IU returned with her new single, “Eight (Prod. & Feat. Suga of BTS)”! “Eight” (에잇) is the seventh digital single by IU. It was released on May 6, 2020 and features Suga.
The “Eight” digital single is a continuation of her age series that began with “Twenty-Three” and “Palette”, and features IU taking on a new style from her past titles thanks to Suga’s skillful producing. “Eight” is like a short confession to her age of twenty-eight, where the lyrics play with the word “Eight” as if it is another person she is talking to through her singing.
The song features a rap segment by Suga as well, bringing a new layer to the track. The music video creates an atmosphere of fantasy, showing IU reflecting on her memories in a sci-fi like setting.
