NCT’s Taeyong Takes to the Skies in Music Video for Solo Track ‘Long Flight’


Right before the arrival of NCT 127’s new English version of their song “Highway to Heaven” earlier Thursday (July 18), fans of the group were gifted with a solo track from rapper Taeyong. The 22-year-old NCT member shared his self-penned “Long Flight” through SM Entertainment’s digital release project SM Station and a high-flying music video.

The song is a laid-back, groovy alt-R&B track that features Taeyong showing off not only his rap but also his smooth vocals. Throughout, he expresses wistful thoughts from a “Long Flight,” expressing desires to soar higher over the clouds.

"Long Flight" was co-written by Royal Dive, who has written songs with GOT7, Nu'EST, Wanna One and many other popular K-pop acts in recent years.

The music video for “Long Flight” focuses on Taeyong, splicing picturesque celestial and botanical imagery with those of the K-pop star enjoying a flight, with some of the best looking in-flight meals of all time.
