On October 23, the makers of League of Legends, Riot Games, debuted their latest musical artist, the boy group HEARTSTEEL. Dubbed the “male K/DA“, HEARTSTEEL consists of six reimagined versions of League of Legends champions Ezreal, Kayn, Aphelios, Yone, K’Sante, and Sett, voiced by various musical artists.
The artists lending their voices to the project include EXO‘s Baekhyun along with Cal Scruby, tobi lou, and ØZI, who are voicing Ezreal, Kayn, K’Sante, and Sett respectively.
Their first song, “PARANOIA”, came with an exciting and high-intensity music video with jaw-dropping animation and highly expressive characters that make it addicting to watch.
Overall, the response to the song and accompanying music video were pretty positive. The comments section on YouTube is full of nothing but praise for the music, animation, and effort put into the project.
On a Reddit post discussing “PARANOIA”, the sentiments were pretty much on the same page, with a lot of praise directed towards Baekhyun specifically.
On a different forum post, though, reactions were a little more mixed. More people seemed disappointed that Baekhyun didn’t have any epic high notes in the bridge, while others say they would have rather had another K/DA comeback instead.
