The relationship with this agency has been troublesome, as her previous comeback “Don’t Make Me Cry”, received little to no promotion from the label. This time around, however,Jessi has released a full album, and promoted her latest song, “Gucci”, on several music shows. This shows a marked difference between her “promotions” last time around which were non-existent. Jessi has shown through her previous releases, that not only is she a very talented vocalist, she also has rap skills. She tends to release music that reflects  her mood at a specific time. Whilst her previous comeback was a more soulful ballad that showcased her vocal talents, this time around we get a more hip hop rap that shows...

Let’s take a look at their new summer song “Red Flavour (sorry, Canadian!)” Song Out of all the songs released this season none of them ooze the summer feeling like ‘Red Flavour’. The lyrics and the music hit you straight away at the beginning of the song. There is no build up, no drawn out intro, just the women and their powerful vocals. The song starts with the chorus, and the catchiness...

Mark x Xiumin “Young & Free” [SM Station]

One of the things I really like about the SM Station project is the collaborations that are borne from it. We get to hear unique collaborations, such as BoA and Beenzino from season 1, and Onew and Rocoberry from this season. This time around, we get to hear the collaboration between EXO’s vocal talent, Xiumin and NCT’s hardest working rapper, Mark. Young and Free Song The song begins with a rather upbeat tone, which makes sense, given it’s  summer release. The punchy piano sound helps give it a depth that, if it was without, would leave the song severely...
