Kang Daniel Mini Album Vol. 1 - Color On Me
Welcome back Daniel!
July 29, 2019 Picked By Violet See all this editor's picks
After six months of waiting, Kang Daniel is finally back with his first solo mini-album Color On Me! Widely known as the winner of Produce 101 Season 2, Daniel has always impressed audiences with his rap, dance and vocals – not to mention his cute personality and nice physique. Besides singing and rapping, the all-rounder also surprises fans with his songwriting in his first solo release!

Produced by Flow Blow, Intro (Through the night) (Track 1) lifts the curtain of this highly anticipated album. It only takes about one and a half minute to listen to the future bass track, which includes lyrics – "If you walk away, I can't breathe. I will hide among the scars. So I wish you, be with me, we gonna be dancing through the night" – that show his love for fans and his hope for them to always stand by him.

Penned by Devine Channel and Thama, lead single "What are you up to" (Track 3) offers a dreamy synth melody filled with rhythmical 808 sounds and beats. The song is co-written by Daniel and expresses the feeling of wondering what your crush is doing right now. Prior to this collaboration, Devine Channel worked with Daniel before on Produce 101 for the concept evaluation song "Open Up." Because of this, I actually expected the title track to also be a sexy and charismatic song where Daniel can showcase his powerful dance moves. To my surprise, it's a style that was rarely seen during his Wanna One era – and it's awesomely fresh! The producers also composed the side track Horizon (Track 4), which sounds comparatively more melancholic.

Again co-written by Daniel, the synth-based groovy R&B tune Color (Track 2) tells of the hard times when the singer was confused about his true self and his own style: "Where am I heading to? I want an answer… Take what I've been loving. Go find myself, my color again." In the chorus, he shows his confidence and determination with the following lyrics: "I ain't gonna lie, I ain't gonna lie. I just go wild, I just go wild. See this is my color."

Apart from the intro track, Flow Blow also produced I HOPE (Track 5), which carries a more hopeful and positive melody among the side tracks. In contrast to the desperate feelings of Intro (Through the night), this track delivers hope and anticipation for and from the singer – "Stay with me, you are the one I need. So you just take my hand, I hope you smile." The song marks a perfect end for the entire album.

Daniel has not only presented an album of synth-themed music but also shared his gratitude to fans and his wish for them to stay with him. Though it's a pity that he's not performing on music shows, I truly appreciate all the effort and hard work put into this release, especially in such short period of time. All the best to this talented boy!
