STOP LIFE. STOP IT RIGHT NOW: NEW GIRL GROUP ALERT!!!
Anyone who’s ANYONE knows that one thing we LOVE (besides Godney) is a girl group.
Anyone who’s ANYONE knows that the other thing we LOVE (besides a girl group) is music of the Asian persuasion.
Meet BLUSH: Five girls making “edgy and fun” music. Together. AND ALL OF ASIAN DESCENT.
I AM ABSOLUTELY SEIZING.
Above is a viral animated clip (created by animator Shawn Harris with the iPad Brush App!) for “Undivided,” the groups’ lead single featuring Snoop Dogg (!).
The song is an summery mid-tempo electronica/R&B scorcher, much in the same vein as the recent output of Jessica Mauboy or Girlicious: “I love him and everything in me says don’t fight it / When I look into his eyes, I know we will be undivided,” the girls croon above the infectious, slow-grinding beat that bumps with an early ’00’s power-pop punch.
(PS: Do you hear those cries of “Aishiteru!” and “Wo Ai Ni” at the end? MY HEART. WON’T SKIP…A BEAT.)
And now, the roll-call for your new favorite band:
• Victoria–‘Queen V’–is the regal and poised singer/dancer with model-looks and an extensive gymnast background who while being raised in Hong Kong recorded several successful singles for the Chinese market.
• Natsuko–‘Nacho’–is the Japanese dance-crew veteran with a Hip-Hop vocal soul.
• Angeli is the sensual singer from the Philippines who was former lead singer of two bands as well as a top contestant on Pinoy Idol.
• Ji Ha born and raised in Korea, is the seemingly shy former law student with an R&B heart who has earned the nickname ‘Tiger’ because of her wild side.
• Alisha–‘L’il Ali’–is the youngest member, a multi-talented and multi-lingual Hindi singer/dancer who brings together Bollywood and Salsa with Hip-Hop and World Pop.
Regal and poised singer?! Multi-talented Hindi dancer?! MY GOD…YES!!!!
According to their official website, their upcoming studio album will feature production by several MuuMuse approved acts including Tal Herzberg, DJ Alex Guadino and Morgan Page.
