Crush’s “Step by Step” was released in 2020 as part of his mini album, With Her. The song features Yoon Mirae.
Joy’s “Day by Day” is from her 2021 remake album, Hello. The song was originally released in 1999 by As One, a female R&B duo.
Both songs were released after Crush and Joy joined forces for their duet, “Mayday.”
“Step by Step” is about wanting to be in a relationship with someone but letting them set the pace and decide when to take things to the next level.
“Day by Day” is about asking someone to be patient with you as your love for them grows a bit more every day and you slowly open up to them.
Crush wrote the lyrics for “Step by Step,” and Joy chose to include “Day by Day” on her remake album.
Although there’s no official confirmation that “Step by Step” and “Day by Day” reveal Crush and Joy’s feelings for each other, fans definitely seem to think that these songs contain the couple’s messages to each other!
Now after today’s news Joy’s Day by Day performance will hit even harder
