Hurry up, everyone, we need to talk about NCT Doyoung’s angel voice immediately. At The Honey POP, we love vocals like honey, and believe us when we say Doyoung is one of the top names on our list with his sweet vocals. We swear the world is healing every time we hear him sing. And nope, we are not being extra. Doyoung gives his singing everything he has, and now it’s time to repay him, fam. Let’s honor Doyoung’s straight-from-heaven voice with a mini-Doyoung covers marathon.
‘Falling’ — Harry Styles
Where should we begin with Doyoung’s cover of ‘Falling?’ We couldn’t understand how Doyoung could take an already emotional song and make it much more emotional. We knew he had that kind of power, but he still manages to catch us off guard. We swear that this precious man’s gift will be the end of us.
‘Dear Name’ — IU
Another cover that proved Doyoung is a vocal legend. Our queen IU once said that ‘Dear Name’ is the hardest to sing among her songs, and Doyoung literally smashed this song with his incredible talent. Ignoring the fact that we always cry whenever we listen to the ‘Dear Name’ cover of Doyoung, we can’t stop ourselves from playing it on loop. Damn, those high notes, tho.
Also, the behind-the-scenes of this beautiful cover video warms our hearts. So, let’s remember it as well!
‘idontwannabeyouanymore’ — Billie Eilish
It’s been three years since Doyoung delighted us with his cover of ‘idontwannabeyouanymore,’ but we’re still surprised that he gave a free concert at a subway station. How could he do this for free?!?!?!?! The nicest part about this cover is that you can hear his voice in its entirety. There was no microphone, no sound effects, nothing. Doyoung’s exceptional talent makes us love and admire him more and more each day, and no one can blame us.
‘breathin’ — Ariana Grande
Doyoung’s ethereal voice has this effect on us. Kim Doyoung flexes his surreal vocals once more with his cover of Ariana Grande‘s ‘breathin.’ This is one of those covers that makes you say, “Wow, he was born to be a singer!”
Special thanks to Kun for the beautiful piano and arrangement of the song to help Doyoung bless us, by the way.
‘Rain’ — TAEYEON
Another stunning cover by Doyoung that made our skin clearer, made the weather warmer, and helped the sun shine brighter. He literally paid his respect to TAEYEON’s lovely song ‘Rain.’ Our favorite part about this cover? Doyoung doing his own back vocals and harmonizing with himself. It’s just *chef’s kiss* and we won’t get tired of it ever.
‘Beautiful’ — Crush
Apart from Doyoung’s voice, we love this cover because of the audience’s reactions. So, if you ever think we are being extra about Doyoung’s voice, watch this video. You will see Czennies aren’t alone in this journey. This ‘Beautiful’ cover also shows Doyoung’s artistic talent too, as he arranged this song to make it “more-Doyoung.” He puts a bit of his soul into every song he sings, and Crush’s ‘Beautiful’ was no exception.
Doyoung has one of the most soothing voices out there in the K-POP industry, and we will stand by it until our last breaths. What do you think? Which Doyoung cover is your all-time favorite?
