On May 16, C-real (Chemi, Re Dee, Effie, Ann J, Lenny) released “Sorry But I” as a digital single.
C-real have become popular with their dance songs like “No No No No No,” released in October, and “Joma Joma,” released in March. “Sorry But I” is their first ballad.
The song has been in the upper ranks of the charts since it was released, and it finally ranked eighth on Melon’s real-time chart at 8:25 a.m. It attracted attention as it entered the top ten with the songs of IU, Baek Ji Young, Tae Ti Seo, Sistar, Ulala Session, Park Jin Young, and Busker Busker.
“Sorry But I” is composed by Kim Se Jin, who made such hit songs as Seo Young Eun and Jung Yeop’s “What An Awful Word” and Wheesung’s “After A Year,” and his partner Seo Jung Jin. It’s characterized by a lyrical melody and a groove with folk rock and analogue synth combined.
Through the song, C-real also show off their singing abilities.
NAP Entertainment, C-real’s agency, says, “Choi Kap Won, C-real’s producer and lyric writer, has tried to express the feelings of girls who are excited yet worried about love through the song.”
