Update: MONSTA X's rapper, I.M released his mixtape titled 'Horizon' last week and everyone was buzzing about the title track with the same name, featuring American singer-songwriter, ELHAE.
The song surprised fans as it showed a different side of I.M as it deviates from the usual hard-hitting K-pop beats that they are used to hearing from MONSTA X. 'Horizon' is an alternative R&B track that showcases a groovier side of I.M, who recorded the song in English together with ELHAE.
The music video was also released starring I.M and a digitally rendered version of ELHAE. The video reflects the moody tone of the song perfectly as I.M roams through Seoul alone at night, bathed in neon lights. Watch the video below for the full effect:
