Veteran singer BoA will begin a series of new projects to celebrate the 20th anniversary since her debut, starting remakes of five of her top hits by some of the biggest artists in and outside of Korea. 
 
Through the project dubbed "Our Beloved BoA," some of the singer's most popular songs will be remade by prominent singers including Baekhyun of boy band Exo, BOL4, Red Velvet and pop singer Gallant.  
 
Baekhyun will remake "Garden In The Air" (2005), BOL4 will sing "Atlantis Princess" (2003), Red Velvet will redo "Milky Way" (2003) and Gallant will show off his take on "Only One" (2012). 
 
A special classical rendition of "Tree" (2003) will be created by SM Entertainment's classical music label SM Classics, the agency said. 
 
The tracks will be revealed through SM Entertainment's digital song distribution platform SM Station. The agency did not reveal the release dates of the remake. 
 
BoA made her debut in 2000 with "ID:PEACE B" at the age of just 13, and stormed the Asian music scene with her talented vocal and dancing skills, which she flaunted through hits such as "No. 1" (2002), "Valenti" (2002) and "Hurricane Venus" (2010). 
 
She rewrote K-pop history by becoming one of the first successful artists to launch into the Japanese and American music market in the early 2000s.
