[New Release] HEIZE
Although Heize became known to the public as a semi-finalist on the all-female hip-hop audition program “Unpretty Rapstar 2” in 2015 as a rapper, this album really shows off her singing abilities.
However, she does manage to show glimpses of her rhyming abilities on “Don’t Know You,” going bar-to-bar with Los Angeles-based rapper Nafla.
Out of the album’s five tracks, “You, Clouds, Rain” is a standout. Although sung quietly, the plaintive lyrics along with a powerful guest verse from one of the best vocalists in the country, Shin Yong-jae, makes the song perfect for a rainy, sentimental day.
Soon after the album became available, “You, Clouds, Rain” surpassed the lead single and hit number one on major domestic charts.
