B2UTIES, this one is for you! On August 20, BEAST‘s Yoon Doo Joon and Yong Jun Hyung released a free digital duet track “I Am A Man” just for their fans.
“I Am A Man” was first revealed in BEAST’s comeback concert in July. The two BEAST members promised fans that if their comeback title song “Shadow” hits number one in various music programs, that they will release “I Am A Man” for free.
Since “Shadow” did win the number one spot for all three music programs for KBS, MBC and SBS, Yoon Doo Joon and Yong Jun Hyung kept their promise and recorded “I Am A Man” in the studio for their fans.
As soon as “I Am A Man” was released through BEAST’s official website, the servers crashed due to the high volume of traffic. The agency was reportedly busy preparing more server space to provide fans with the song.
“I Am A Man” is written and composed by Yong Jun Hyung and pairs the husky but soft voice of Yoon Doo Joon with Yong Jun Hyung’s rhymical rapping.
The United Cube YouTube channel uploaded a short video of Yoon Doo Joon and Yong Jun Hyung saying a few words about their new duet. The clip starts off with Yong Jun Hyung apologizing for not releasing “I Am A Man” earlier. He also continues by saying that he wanted to create a new song for the fans. Yoon Doo Joon cutely added that he just pretty much followed Yong Jun Hyung’s lead but Yong Jun Hyung defended him by saying, “We both talked a lot about the song.”
Yong Jun Hyung also revealed that there is a special message at the end of the song so he tells fans to listen all the way to the end. He also shares that Yoon Doo Joon was not feeling well during the recording of the song but he worked hard until the end.
Lastly, Yoon Doo Joon asks fans to enjoy the song, stay healthy and keep out of the heat with “I Am A Man,” when Yong Jun Hyung humorously interjects, “I think they might get hotter while listening to it.”
The clip ends with the special message that was put at the end of the song and it goes, “This song is only for the B2UTIES. We hope you enjoy this song. Thank you and thank you again. Peace.”
