How to Listen to Paranoia by Heartsteel and Baekhyun
Paranoia, Heartsteel’s debut single, is releasing on Monday, October 23, on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Deezer. To listen to League of Legends’ newest heartthrobs, simply search for their name or click here to pre-save or listen.
We have no word on a music video for Heartsteel, but judging by K/DA’s 568 million views on Pop/Stars, I’m willing to bet we’ll see one eventually. The power of thirst is too real. Too powerful. Expect a possible performance at the League of Legends World Championship, too.
Which Artists Are Part of Heartsteel? — All Heartsteel Members
Being fictional characters — apologies if I was the one to break the news to you — Heartsteel requires real-life talent to give them a voice and a beat. Riot has handpicked four talented artists to bring these LoL Champions to life: Baekhyun, Cal Scruby, Tobi Lou, and 0ZI.
While there are six members of the Heartsteel, Aphelios and Yone have non-vocal roles. Aphelios is the group’s songwriter and instrumentalist, while Yone is the producer. Riot describes Heartsteel as having a “bold, one-of-a-kind identity,” with their sound drawing inspiration from “modern music collectives and a range of influences from across genres and eras.” Judging by the talent behind them, Paranoia is shaping up to be an absolute banger.
All Heartsteel Members and Their Artists
Speaking of talent, here’s every member of Heartsteel, their role, and the artists behind the Champions.
- Ezrael — The group’s lead vocalist, performed by Baekhyun of EXO and SuperM K-Pop stardom.
- Kayn — Performed by LA Rapper Cal Scruby, Kayn provides rap vocals and is one of the group’s instrumentalists. You’re missing out if you’ve never heard Money Buy Drugs by Cal.
- K’Sante — Nigerian rapper, singer, and record producer Tobi Lou is behind K’Sante, the group’s co-leader and vocalist.
- ØZI — Golden Melody Best New Artist award winner ØZI plays Sett as the group’s other rapper and co-leader.
- Aphelios — Heartsteel’s very own songwriter. Although who in the real world is writing Heartsteel’s songs, we don’t know. A group effort, maybe?
- Yone — The group’s brooding producer.
Of course, each champion will have skins to match their new flashy outfits. Expect to see your timelines flooded with all types of fan art very soon.
And remember, it’s HeartSTEEL, not Heartsteal. Though, they will be stealing plenty of hearts. For more League of Legends goodness, check our LoL tag page for guides, news articles, and more. Teemo screamo group next, Riot? They should hire me.
