f(x)‘s Amber gives us courage with her new track “Borders” for SM STATION!
Amber is such an inspiration to all of us! This girl’s new track “Borders” is a call for everyone struggling with life, experiencing unfairness and loneliness, or losing hope in achieving his/her dream. “Borders” combines Amber‘s honest rap and soothing vocals, and it was created entirely by the singer herself. The piano sound serves as a perfect frame for Amber’s beautiful voice.

The music video displays the reality of a person, who has been stuck in life. Without any embellishments, the music video shows the behind-the-scenes of a person, who loses his true face trying to fit into “society’s standards”. Amber has gone through the same herself, that’s why she wants to teach us a lesson on how to fight for yourself, your dreams, your beliefs and your life. Prior to the release, she also left a sincere message on her Twitter that explained the meaning of the song:
“Before the song is released there are a couple things I’d like to share. This song took me a lot of courage to write because I was always apprehensive of the subject it talked about. I’ve been doing this job for a long time and right now I speak not as Amber of f(x) nor “celebrity” Amber, but just Amber. Just plain, simple, human Amber. “Borders” is more than a song; no glamorous concepts, no “trying to be cool.” Its a raw and real story about reality. Its shares, not only about my personal experiences but of people very close to me. Everyone involved in this project- the producers, my team DPR, the actors, to the staff- were people specifically chosen as they have never given up on me and believed in my vision. For that, I want to thank them for making this possible for me. When you guys listen to “Borders”, there is just one thing i wish everyone could take from it: NEVER give up on yourself. There is always hope in the midst of this dark, demanding world. In the end, live for those that did not get the chance to and just keep fighting. Always, thank you you guys. You guys made it possible.”
