South Korean rapper and singer-songwriter Penomeco finally released his double single, “Organic,” today (August 25). Simultaneously, he shared the music video for the first track, “Shy (eh o).”
The second track, “BOLO,” features iconic South Korean hip hop veteran YDG. Penomeco’s latest project sees him experimenting more with afro-pop, a marked difference from his debut album with P Nation, Dry Flower.
Released under Psy-Owned label P Nation, “Shy (eh o)” sees Penomeco vying for a lady’s attention. Penomeco poses against a white car in the dark-lit music video as the camera cuts away to shots of a woman dancing. The second track, “BOLO” follows equally addictive drums and is titled after the Nigerian slang word for ‘fool.’
The music video for “BOLO” is yet to be released but on August 22, P Nation shared a teaser via their social media channels.
