Yaeji, or Kathy Lee, is a singer/producer from Seoul, South Korea, now based in New York. Thank you, Genius. I was pretty sure this would be eliminated really early on so for it to beat a number of singles by bigger K-Pop stars is a testament to KPJ's slow but sure acceptance of Yaeji's music. Yes, her music is so different from the K-Pop sound we know but I think that's what makes her exciting. I wouldn't necessarily call myself a fan - no, not with that score - but I will always champion her for being a new interesting voice. One More is definitely not as memorable as 2017's raingurl. But weirdly, I was more receptive to One More on first listen. One More's strength is definitely the production. God, what kind of smoothness? My face can't relate. I don't think I like Yaeji as a vocalist - a common complaint I have for indie artists - but I don't hate her vocals either. This weirdly reminds me of Grimes' music pre-Art Angels. I tried so hard to get into Visions because Grimes seemed so cool to me but I just wasn't into her voice. But then Art Angels came and I now stan forever. I hope I'll have the same journey with Yaeji. Bring on your Art Angels, unnie! eccentricsimply brings up an interesting take: "I... Don't know how to score this in comparison to everything else in the rate. I like it, but also I don't know if I do? Complicated. Have a 6." I agree. This was my exact voting process dddddd. Gintoki wants more from Yaeji: "Like what is this? Only song she released last year and it really sucks? Does she some creative blockage or something because Park Hye Jin did better Yaeji, than Yaeji did Yaeji." Salami returns to reclaim his rate villain throne with his score of 0: "Erm. I didn’t like this at all." Tell us more. ry123 is also unimpressed: "Just not enjoyable." Some unnies took issue with Yaeji's vocals. Reboot: "It’s a cool track, but I feel like I have to knock it down several points for those ASMR vocals." Miyawakiwi: "i hate that ‘baby voice’ singing style but she kinda pulls it off, the music is not bad but it is quite flat." And eliminathan is, for once, a rate villain????????: "I listen to singers. I very rarely listen to people who cannot sing. I absolutely can't get into this song no matter how many times I hear it, very repetitive and not much happens until the very end where a few more layers are added to the music. I do feel bad because it's a supersarang but it's also one of four songs I ranked lower than 4. Let me be the villain for once please." I'm shaken. "Whew... who is this secret queen?," asks thommyh. A Stan is Born. Oleander clocks my raingurl comparison dddd: "The heathens are going to do this so dirty, aren’t they? “This is no raingurl, they’ll say.” And no it’s not but it is excellent." ryjm goes very specific: "Hazy, trippy and borderline creepy. This is giving flashbacks of intoxicated nights in trashy clubs when the sun has already risen but you don’t care and keep mindlessly dancing. I’m fascinated by it but don’t think it has much replayability (it is a word…I googled it)." Clubbing? This shut-in can't relate. Yaeji breathes coolness and a couple of y'all noted that. askew dreams: "I love the barely-there, soft focus synths cushioning Yaeji's voice. I want to be this cool." ThighHighs is already imagining Yaeji as his BFF: "Queen of cool. She seems like she’s by a fun person to get high with and talk about Vanderpump Rules." He shows us once again that he's indeed a member of K-Indiejustice: "Talent. Coolness. Moodiness. I kinda wish she would produce for Korean artists too. This song is a whole mood and it’s rather perfect." Let's have Kuhleezi have the last word: "The good sis Yaeji really out there doing bangers for people into Xanax and not getting enough appreciation for that." Poetic.
