SM’s new boy group Riize to release follow-up single

October 27, 2023

Riize, a rookie boy group under SM Entertainment, will drop “Talk Saxy” on Friday, a new digital single that follows up its popular debut song, “Get a Guitar.”

The name of the new song was inspired by the word “saxy,” meaning a very attractive saxophone player, according to SM.

The tune features ear-catching saxophone and 808 drum sounds from the beginning, the agency added.

The boys sing about their feelings of attraction toward a stranger honestly and confidently.

“As you can feel from the title, the saxophone sound is charming. The moment I saw the song’s dance sketch for the first time, I just wanted to do it quickly. We’ll be able to show you our most confident performance yet,” the group said through the agency.

The team that consists of seven members — Shotaro, Eunseok, Sungchan, Wonbin, Seunghan, Sohee and Anton — debuted last month with “Get a Guitar.” The first single became an instant hit, selling over a million copies.
