Latest K-HipHop and K-R&B Songs:

Heize – ‘HAPPEN’

From her 7th mini-album with the same name, ‘HAPPEN’, the title track features a poignant theme of contemporary social isolation. This meaningful theme is brought to life not just by Heize’s soft vocals and elite penmanship but is also brought out in the visuals of the K-Drama-like fashioned music video which features the renowned actor Song Joong Ki as the male lead beside Heize. It is a track that just washes over its listeners in a quiet, gentle way and leaves them feeling the depth of the Heize-wave that just swept over them.

Huh! – ‘business boy (ft. Kim Nong-mil, BLOO)’

The trio of MKIT RAIN’s BLOO, Kim Nong-mil (formerly known as Oh Dam Ryul/ Chin Chilla) and Huh! (formerly known as Rose De Penny) might seem like an odd pairing to some, but the freshness of this track is proof of what the synergies of these three rappers can produce! Starting out the track, Huh! lays the foundations of the chill, real flexing vibe of the track in his gritty tone, which is passed on Kim Nong-mil who plays the rhythm like a fiddle coolly. The short appearance of BLOO in the end before Huh! changes up the flow and finishes strong, seems like a hidden ingredient to amp up the sauciness of ‘business boy’.

The consistent melody of the instrumentals throughout the track where she mellifluently sings, “Baby I got you on loop, on loop”, also seems to support the looping theme of the romantic symphony.
