Whether your day is sunny or rainy, there’s no doubt that you need the perfect soundtrack. And even if it’s rainy, there’s no doubt that MOD SUN is the way to go! MOD has given us so much incredible music since 2010, and that includes his iconic collabs with some of our other faves. It’s about time we all update our playlists, so here are three MOD SUN collabs you need in your rotation!
‘SEXOXO’ With Charlotte Sands
Let’s start with MOD’s most recent collaboration, the thoughtful ‘SEXOXO’ featuring Charlotte Sands! We’ve been hoping for a Mod x Charlotte track for ages, and this track delivered in the best way possible. The duality between reflecting on bad times with an ex and the bittersweet idea that you’d never get over the person you’re currently in love with is so intriguing. We can’t wait to hear ‘SEXOXO’ on the tracklist of his God Save The Teen album this February or live on his tour of the same name next year – grab tickets right here so you don’t miss it!
For me, every great song has a haunting quality. A place where past and present can live together. The lyrics of ‘SEXOXO’ are just that…moving on, starting again, happiness, sadness, fear, and excitement. It’s all there. This song was created on a rainy day in the mountains of California and that landscape will always be ingrained in this song. I think Charlotte Sands is on the road to superstardom, she has an incredibly unique voice and when you see her perform, the quality of her artistry triples. I needed her to sing on this song, there was no one else that could give the haunting quality that I was looking for but her.
‘0X1=LOVESONG’ With TOMORROW X TOGETHER
Have we mentioned we love it when our favorite western artists team up with our favorite Korean artists? Because we love it when our favorite western artists team up with our favorite Korean artists, and MOD’s remix of TXT’s ‘0X1=LOVESONG’ is a perfect example of why. He brought such an amazing, gritty rock flair to a song we already adored and really made it into something unique!
‘Flames’ With Avril Lavigne
Of course, we can’t forget MOD’s masterpiece with his fiancé, Avril Lavigne! Everything about ‘Flames’ is simply iconic, showcasing both of their unique talents and marrying them together (pun maybe intended) into one pop-punk masterpiece. The two fell in love after meeting in a songwriting session, and ‘Flames’ is the ultimate testament to their artistic and romantic chemistry.
