Hip-hop trio Epik High’s new tracks from album We’ve Done Something Wonderful have been shooting up the charts since the album’s release on Monday.
“Love Story," a song with a sentimental tone featuring IU is about unforgettable memories after a breakup. “Home is Far Away,” featuring Oh Hyuk, the leader of indie band Hyukoh, is a song for people that have a hard time because of dreams they haven’t been able to achieve.
These two lead tracks took the first two spots on seven major Korean streaming services, and the album made it on to number one on the Apple iTunes album charts in ten countries.
Winner’s Mino, Akdong Musician’s Lee Soo-hyun, and Crush are just a few, of the many artists, who feature in the 11-track album. “We’ve Done Something Wonderful” is the group's ninth full-length album and their first in three years.
Wheesung releases first single under own label
R&B singer Wheesung has returned with his new single "Aroma" featuring rapper Hash Swan. It's the first song to be released from his independent label Realslow, which was launched earlier this year. He also changed his stage name to Realslow, which the artist had been called in the past. "Aroma" is a slow tempo R&B piece based on slow jam style. It’s not too fancy, and Realslow says he let go of his usual powerful vocals this time, focusing more on rhythm. The 35-year-old singer is expected to be active with his new song, as well as performing for a musical beginning at the end of next month.
