Forever (약속) is the second digital single by aespa. It was released on February 5, 2021.

Forever is the remake of the same name song by Yoo Young Jin as a part of S.M. Entertainment’s holiday album “Winter Vacation in” in 2000.

The song is a mid-tempo ballad with an acoustic guitar sound and warm lyrics about promising forever to a loved one. It will showcase a different side of aespa, from their powerful debut song Black Mamba. Yoo Young Jin is said to have personally rearranged the song for the group.[1]
