While I am writing a blog post, I tend to like to listen to the songs I'm writing about. Sometimes, I get into the writing and I let the song go to the next song. Usually, especially these couple of weeks, the next song is one I know well. As I wrote yesterday's post, the next song came on, and it was one I had not heard before.... nor did the artist sound familiar.
So, that isn't the typical way I get to posts for this blog. But Jessi is not your typical K-Pop artist.
Because she was born in Queens. In New York. The Korean-American rapper was raised in New Jersey until age 15, when she moved to South Korea in search of her music career. After early problems aclimating to the Korean culture, the hard-edged hip-hop artist has gained some momentum.
This song was released in March 2021 and is her latest single, cowritten by PSY. Yes. That PSY. I promise that wasn't planned.
