Ailee Returns with new Album
Along with her brand new album, Korean-American vocal legend Ailee has released her dazzling new track, “Don’t Teach Me.”
- The twelve-track album is named “AMY,” titled after the singer’s birth name. The album marks the first record released by Ailee under THE L1VE (a label founded by K-Pop icon Ravi).
The title track is a powerful anthem that showcases all of the dynamic vocal skills mastered by this incredible artist. Mixing Ailee’s stunning vocals with a jazzy swing sound created by the big band’s brass instruments gives the track a unique sound and feel.
The music video reflects the grandness of Ailee’s voice with lavish, luxurious visuals and sets of glittering ballrooms filled with extravagantly dressed and masked guests.
The track and concept perfectly suit this talented artist. As the third album released by Ailee, “AMY” is a brilliant addition to this artist’s incredible discography.
As one of the most talented and skilled vocal artists in the Korean music industry, Ailee has released some of the most popular OST tracks for dramas like “Lovers of the Red Sun,” “Doom at Your Service,” “Start Up,” and “Guardian” to name a just few.
Other artists released on the 27/28th of October include Park Jihoon’s “HOT&COLD” and K-Hip-Hop artist BLOO’s “MOON AND BACK.”
