Share This Post

K-Pop ‘TEENFRESH’ pioneers STAYC have recently released their Spotify K-Pop ON! (온) Single featuring their own rendition of TWICE’s “FANCY.” This is under the K-Pop ON! (온) First Crush campaign.

The single is the final of three Spotify-exclusive covers produced and released as part of Spotify’s K-Pop ON! (온) First Crush campaign, which invites listeners to celebrate a shared passion for K-Pop as they reminisce about the first artists who ignited their love for the genre.

Launched in commemoration of the anniversary of K-Pop ON! (온), Spotify’s global genre flagship playlist dedicated to bringing millions of listeners around the world of K-Pop’s very best, the K-Pop ON! (온) First Crush campaign serves as a testament to how the genre touches lives, spreads positivity and unites listeners. Since its inception in 2014, the playlist has amassed more than 5.3 million saves by Spotify users worldwide, transcending regional boundaries, languages and cultures, and racking up billions of streams for Korean artists.

For STAYC, their Spotify K-Pop ON! (온) Single is both a tribute to TWICE, whom they regard as role models, and a trip down memory lane to their predebut days. Originally released back in 2019, TWICE’s “FANCY” quickly became one of the members’ most-loved songs at the time and one they’d practice in the studio as trainees.

Now, STAYC come full circle with “Fancy – Spotify Singles,” which features an R&B twist to the 2019 electro-pop hit. In their cover, SUMIN, SIEUN, ISA, SEEUN, YOON and J showcase their falsetto, performing the song at a more laidback pace while delivering the sophistication and playfulness of the iconic track.

“We’re really excited to be working with Spotify to bring SWITHs (our fans) our rendition of a song that we as a group hold dear. We’ve always loved and respected TWICE growing up, and “FANCY” in particular has given us many shared fond memories from our days as trainees. It’s a peek into the soundtrack of our journey as K-Pop artists and fans ourselves, and we hope SWITHs will enjoy our cover and join us in celebrating our First K-Pop Crush!” said STAYC.

To let fans in on discovering more about STAYC’s rendition of “FANCY,” Spotify will be rolling out a series of exclusive bonus content on its K-Pop ON! (온) Video Podcast and YouTube channels. On March 16 STAYC performed their Spotify K-Pop ON! (온) Single, and on March 18, Spotify and the members of STAYC took fans on a trip down memory lane to unpack the group’s beginnings with K-Pop. On March 20, Spotify will take you behind the scenes for a peek into the Making of STAYC’s Spotify K-Pop ON! (온) Single.
