Happy New Year!
Last year, I compiled a list of my favorite K-Pop (Korean Pop) songs from that year. This year, I decided to do something little bit different, and focus on the little guy. Seeing how this is my first post of the New Year, I wanted to make it count. So it was very important that it felt authentic. These songs were all chosen based on feeling. And how often I went back to play then after my initial excitement was gone.
Hailing from Saint Paul, Minnesota this Salvadorian triple threat is an artist to watch out for. I first came across SΔLVMAKNAE two years ago randomly searching YouTube. It was a video sharing his experience auditioning for SM Entertainment. SM? One of Premier South Korean Record Labels. That caught my attention right away. Afterwards, I proceeded to watch his English cover for TXVQ’s Something. Fast forward two years, he’s growth is quite impressive. Even cooler, he brought his friends along for the ride. Forming a group called WNAX with friends TFR, Dio C and Ezylite being notable members.
