Jessi drops her brand new single “Cold Blooded” in collaboration with Mnet’s reality survival show Street Woman Fighter. All the six dance crews go hard in the powerful music video which matches the laidback yet rugged vibe of the song. Being the dynamic artist she is, Jessi experiments with various genres like Trap, Moombahton, Dubstep, and Neurobass, mixing them with modern Hip-hop. She also exudes her influential aura with her vocals and the rap bars that she wrote. Although the song has an interesting hook and lyrics, it is not recommended for minors.

TRI.BE – Would You Run

Rookie girl group TRI.BE has released their first EP ‘VENI VIDI VICI‘ that is made up of seven songs including their previous singles “DOOM DOOM TA” and “RUB-A-DUM” and the title track “Would You Run“. The title track is completely influenced by Latin Moombahton. The song finds itself away from the intrepid beats during the chorus where the instrumentation gives way for the girls’ vocals to shine. The song portrays the strong determination TRI.BE has to continue reaching new heights and achieve their dreams.

Eric Nam – I Don’t Know You Anymore

Korean-American artist Eric Nam has released his first single as an independent artist. ‘I Don’t Know You Anymore‘ is his attempt to bring a new soundscape to his discography with Southern influences. The song borders on the Emo Punk-Rock and Synthpop where he sings of a toxic lover but now he’s over them and the detestable feelings he harbored. The music video also has the Georgian touch where he impressively introduces us to a new side of him.
