Lee Hi Makes a Long-Awaited Comeback with New EP!
After a two-year hiatus, soloist Lee Hi is back to heat up the summer with her latest EP titled 24°C! With a total of five brand new songs off the album, Lee Hi brings an array of sounds that fans will enjoy from beginning to end.
NO ONE feat. B.I of iKON
No Way feat. G.Soul
Love Is Over
1, 2 feat. Choi Hyunsuk of TREASURE
While Lee Hi is known for her cute and bright music videos as well as her slow and emotional ballads, she brings out a more mature and sultry style with “NO ONE.” The song is definitely fit for summer thanks to the tropical drums and beat mixed with Latin flair; it’s the type of song that will have fans shaking their hips. The song especially spices up once the chorus hits the flute instrumentals, drums and B.I’s voice laced in the background. But that’s not all for B.I—the iKON member does have his own dedicated verse in “NO ONE” which serves as a perfect complement to Lee Hi’s velvety vocals.
Lee Hi once again delivers another ethereal music video that blends vintage fashion and fantasy together. But unlike usual, she has traded the fun and cute vibe for a smoother and more sophisticated feeling throughout the music video, with the theme of cats also prevalent. Whether it was the actual animal itself, through the fashion, or portraying Lee Hi’s love interest, cats served as a medium for expressing the smooth and sophisticated themes. There is a magical quality to the cinematics that will have fans and viewers in awe and hitting that replay button over and over again.
The rest of the EP offers a colorful mix of songs that fans new and old will appreciate. As the album is centered around the summer heat, all the songs have a steady and sultry burn that will get fans grooving. “No Way” is a jazz-R&B ballad that features G.Soul, and it is a song for all the hopeless romantics out there. “Love Is Over” is the complete opposite of the previous track, which serves as the soulful break up ballad. For those fans who are looking for another song to groove and dance to, “1, 2” is the perfect song thanks to the Latin influence sprinkled throughout the instrumentals. Lastly, the album ends on with acoustic ballad “20MIN.”
Lee Hi does not fail to bring another solid album to her growing library. There is hope that she will return once again and not keep fans waiting as long for new content. Congratulations Lee Hi on another successful comeback!
