HEIZE firmly stays on top of major charts
Singer/songwriter/rapper Heize’s EP “You, Clouds, Rain” is being played all over the radio, in stores and is still dominating the charts. One of her title songs was actually a hidden track that Heize had promised to unveil when it rains (and it did). “You, Clouds, Rain” featuring Shin Yong-jae is number one on four major domestic charts. Her initial title song, “Don’t know you,” and other tracks including “rainy,” “Dark Clouds” (featuring Nafla), and “rainin’ with you” all seem to be a perfect fit for the rainy season in Korea.
Despite the help of the weather, growing popularity of hip-hop music in Korea, as well as the rising popularity of female rappers seems to have contributed to Heize’s growing fame. The 26-year-old was on the hip-hop competition show Unpretty Rapstar.
