Gabi and Shriya Lenka
Earlier this month, on the 26th of May, BLACKSWAN’s company, DR Music or DR Entertainment, announced the addition of two new members: Dutch-Brazillian former-1MILLION-dancer Gabi and 18-year-old Indian-born performer Shriya Lenka.
BLACKSWAN has made headlines with their unique member lineup since their debut, being the first group to have members of African and Brazillian descent. The group, in addition to their Korean members Judy and Youngheun, includes Fatou, who was born in Senegal and raised in Belgium, and Leia, who is a Japanese-Brazillian Vocalist/Rapper raised in Brazil.
As a result of their international talented members, BLACKSWAN and their music quickly gained traction with a wide variety of fans around the globe. Their first debut track, released on the 16th of October, has gained over 4 million YouTube views, an impressive amount for a rookie group under a lesser-known label.
Only a month after their debut, Korean-member Hyeme left the group, after staying with the label throughout her six-year career in the former group RaNia. The group restructured and returned to the stage a year later with their sophomore track “Close To Me.”
Now, after seven months, fans look forward to BLACKSWAN settling into their new member lineup and establishing themselves firmly in K-Pop’s mainstream industry.
