Tracks Farewell, Tell Me First and Stress are also ranked high on the charts, displaying Taeyeon′s mighty power as a solo artist.I is a medium tempo pop song featuring a electronic guitar melody and strong drum rhythm, lyrics, which Taeyeon helped write for the first time ever, that relay autobiographical stories and rapping by VerbalJint.
The music video for I is set to be released on Taeyeon′s official website and SMTOWN′s official YouTube channel at noon on October 7.
As I is a song with autobiographical lyrics written by Taeyeon, the singer will play two characters in the music video, expressing the process of finding one′s other self. Shot by a helicam, the music video captures New Zealand′s magnificent nature and Taeyeon′s unique charms, presenting beautiful visuals.
Taeyeon will kick off music program promotions with Mnet′s M COUNTDOWN on October 8, before performing on KBS′ Music Bank on October 9 and MBC′s Music Core on October 10.
