Infused with a luminous palette of synths and vibrant sonics woven into catchy pop melodies, “friendly fire” explores the complexities of a tumultuous relationship, where words become weapons leading to a terminal state, as eaJ sings: “I know I need to let you go / Can’t get back where we were before.

“friendly fire” follows eaJ’s previous single, Mad, continuing his exploration of emotional depth and personal growth. A poignant story of betrayal and loss, “Mad” made waves on multiple hit radio stations across Asia including 987FM (Singapore), Hitz (Malaysia), Tofu Pop Radio (Thailand), and Asia Pop 40, garnering over 1 million total streams since its release.

Transitioning from his prominent role in K-pop with the internationally acclaimed group, DAY6, eaJ has emerged as a formidable solo recording artist based in Los Angeles. Known for his authenticity and ability to blend musical elements of indie, alternative, and R&B into compelling anthems like “Car Crash” and “typical story”, eaJ continues to amass millions of streams and a dedicated fan base across Asia, earning previous spots on the Spotify Viral 50 charts in the Philippines and Taiwan.

As a solo artist, eaJ has headlined beloved festivals in Asia including 88rising’s ‘Head In The Clouds’ in Jakarta and Manila, along with sold-out headline shows in Singapore and Taipei in 2022.
