aespa to remaster S.E.S track “Dreams Come True”
According to an online press conference, live-streamed through YouTube, K-Pop company SM Entertainment will be partnering with YouTube’s massive remastering project to highlight the history of K-Pop.
“We joined the project with the goal of providing a wider range of music to our users, and we’ll also be recording K-pop‘s history through it. What our users know about K-pop right now is only the half of all, and we look forward to introducing the other half, expanding knowledge and interest in the genre.”Lee Sun (executive director of artist relations in the Asia-Pacific region for YouTube).
- The conference was joined by Lyor Cohen (YouTube global head of music). Cohen emphasized YouTube’s desire for fans to enjoy the “diverse catalogue of K-Pop.”
The first track released from this partnership was the remastered version of legendary group H.O.T’s “Warriors’ Descendent.” Throughout this project, SM is planning to unveil a remastered music video every week.
Furthermore, fans are excited for the remastering of the 1998 hit track “Dreams Come True.” Released by SM girl group S.E.S, “Dreams Come True” is an iconic track from K-Pop history.
- As part of the project, SM’s 2020-debut girl group aespa will be remastering the track with their version and music video to come out in December.
- aespa have already proved their SM remastering ability by releasing their track “Forever,” a remake of a Yoo Youngjin track, in January 2021.
“I grew up listening and singing along to S.E.S.’ songs and it’s an honor for us to re-create the song in our style.”Karina (aespa leader, vocalist, dancer, and rapper)
“Since the song was such a big hit, we had our concerns about how we would add our color into it. We’ll try our best to make sure that the song can receive the same love with our new version.”Giselle (aespa member, rapper, and vocalist)
Partnering with UMG (Universal Music Group), YouTube has already remastered countless classic tracks globally since 2019. Artists whose made-for-TV music videos have received a make-over include Boyz II Men, Janet Jackson, Lionel Richie, and Gwen Stefanie.
