The song boasts of an unequaled composition that spectacularly highlights the vocalist’s rich notes.
“EYE ON YOU” capsulizes the essence of the title of the album OBSESSION as seen in its lyrics with lines like – “I got you stuck inside my head, inside my head | I get thirstier as I drink you down | I want to keep you inside me every second | Can’t get you out | I cannot refuse, again I fall into you | Obsessed with you more, I want you on my body | I can’t escape, feel the moment”.
The electro-house pop piece features a sharp synth line that backs Wonho’s understated vocals add a touch of minimalism in a sensational way to evoke a passionate and moody vibe. Moreover, the powerful bass and heavy drums express the gradually rising tension summarised in the track’s perfervid lyrics rendering this track an out-and-out addictive bop!
Wonho expands on his artistic vision through this atmospheric number in a bewitching manner. “Somebody” features a riveting mix of an acoustic piano, synths, and guitar. The pop-style song further sees the inclusion of a strong bass riff and a powerful and groovy bass sound that harmonizes like a dream with Wonho’s vocals.
The song is one that lays heavy prominence on Wonho’s signature breathy tones and angelic falsetto as he sings of love and loneliness. This only amplifies the allure of the track as it tugs at heartstrings with its emotive lines that express the artist’s yearning in a delicate manner.
