Newcomer R&B/hiphop duo WAEB, who are Wanna and JEBB, have released their first mini album and music video ‘PARTY’.
JEBB (real name: 김재욱, Jaewook Kim) has won the newcomer award at the Korean Popular Culture and Arts Awards in 2012 and 2013 as part of the idol group ‘TOUCH’ (터치). Wanna (real name: 황준원, Joonwon Hwang) is a singer-songwriter and was the main singer of idol group BOYZ (보이즈).
These two are making music based on R&B, hiphop, and future bass, and are skilled artists who can sing, rap, write lyrics, compose, and produce.
Their first album ‘PARTY’ has tracks produced by hot composers mOnSteR nO.9 and 멧돼지 (Boar). The album includes three tracks as well as their instrumental versions. ‘PARTY’ is a future bass track about a man who cannot forget the women he met the night before at a party. The second track ‘Blue Bird’ with its addictive melody is full of gratitude towards the two members’ friends and family for supporting and believing in them. The third track ‘Domino’ is the two artists’ first collaboration and was pre-released last year, before WAEB was created. It uses the metaphor of dominos that keep going forward even though they fall down and features EK of M.B.A Crew.
Check out the music video of ‘PARTY’ below, the album can be previewed on Korean music portals. The duo also has a few cover songs on their YouTube channel so make sure to check those out as well!
