K-pop is once again crossing into our living rooms, and the artist to watch is Jessi. I cannot say it enough, if you are a lover of talent, you will appreciate the different dimensions of Jessi. In her newest song she reminds us about the hardships of breaking up and getting your heart to confirm the needed adjustments. I’ve been married for almost 23 years, but I do recall those struggles. Her newest song showcases how multi-talented she is and once again shows that she should be a real contender for artist currently trending in the US. The song is entirely in English, so here it goes!
If the person in the picture beside Jessi looks familiar it is because he is the brains behind the new label P Nation. He is PSY who sang the popular ‘Ghandm Style’ song years ago. If you were like me you were dancing around the living room with the song on repeat!
In many ways K-pop has been with us for almost a decade, but thanks to groups like BTS, it is now becoming more mainstream with today’s generation. However, without people like PSY, we wouldn’t have those awesome groups that we have grown to love. KISSES ALL.
If you have been following the latest in K-pop groups you have noticed that some of the artist coming from the K-pop scene are serious contenders in talent. While a lot of American artist seem to be skilled at either rapping or singing, many of the Korean artist are skilled at both forms of art. Take one of my favorites Jessi for example! She is a Korean/American female artist who actually comes from New Jersey. She moved to Korea as a teen and has become one of their top female solo artist.
Jessi has managed to stay valid in a country that pretty much likes to discourage women from showing their sexuality. In many K-pop videos women are dressed up to model almost a perfect dream of what a woman should be. However, Jessi pushes upwards with her unique style and unrelenting talent. She is gritty, beautiful, soulful and a truly awesome female rap artist.
In her newest song, she reminds you just how multi-talented she is and her presence as always commands attention with sounds that pop and stress the importance of being true to self. In many ways Jessi would belong in the K-pop hip hop group because she is just as talented as a rapper as she is a singer. Her song Drip which is entirely in English cased some heads to turn when commentators stated that she was being culturally insensitive when she compared her diamonds like blue Crips. Yet, many people forget she is from Jersey and some do not realize that Korea also has Crips and Bloods. So here’s my girl and her new song.
Jackson Wang is also one of those multi-talented artist. He is Chinese and is also a singer in the K-pop group GOT7.
Have a great weekend! To my readers in India, what are some names of Indian artist? I would love to get to know some new Bollywood.
