Omega X ‘Story written in music’: Release date, music video and all about 1st studio album
Omega X has also become the second K-pop group after Pentagon to credit their fandom as lyricists for the song 'For Baby'
After an exciting year and being awarded the ‘Rookie of The Year’ award at the Seoul Music Awards, Omega X is back with their first full-length studio album. Having shown new sides to them with each comeback as evident with the January release ‘Love Me Like’, expectations are high for ‘Story written in music’, their 13-track studio album in which they have also participated in the making and composition. The album is as diverse as it can get as they experiment with ballads, hip hop, R&B and dance genres.
Unlike their previous moombahton and Latin-infused title tracks, for Omega X’s upcoming release, ‘Play Dumb’ is a fun and cheerful lead single that showcases the members’ youthful side and personality that fans loved from their TikTok content. The choreography is equally playful, having been created by Choi Young-jun who is known for TWICE’s viral dance ‘TT’, Monsta X’s ‘Dramarama’, Seventeen’s ‘Adore U’ and more. Fans are also excited for the ‘Story written in music‘ era, as we have three Omega X members making their acting debut with Jaehan and Yechan in the BL K-drama ‘A Shoulder To Cry On’ and Hyuk in 'Bad Girlfriend'.
