Asian Music Show: Year End Edition 12/30/2013

2014 is just around the corner, so we’re counting down the Top 10 Songs of 2013, as well as many other great songs.  Join us as we take a look back at some of my favorite songs from the past year!

10.) Drunken Tiger, Yoon Mirae, & Bizzy (MFBTY) – “Sweet Dream”

Korean hip-hop legend and New York native Drunken Tiger (AKA Tiger JK) got together with his wife, Korean-American rapper and singer Yoon Mirae (AKA T or Tasha), and their good friend Korean-Australian Bizzy.  The trio lives in the same town in Korea and were already recording and producing together, so the next logical step was to start recording songs together, and thus the project group My Fans Are Better Than Yours was born.

Bizzy and Tiger JK have been working together for decades now, and all three members are K-pop industry veterans.  Having already established themselves, and each having unique rapping and singing styles, MFBTY became a vehicle for the three to go a little more experimental with their sound.  They came up with “Sweet Dream”, a catchy mix of melody and rapping with a killer music video.

9.) Cho Yong Pil – “HELLO (feat. Verbal Jint)”

This year, Cho Yong Pil came back with his nineteenth studio album to take his place as the rightful King of K-Pop.  Having started with music in the late 1960s, he emerged as a popular trot singer in South Korea in the early 1980s, and has been enjoying his wide commercial success since then.  The man is 63 years old, but he proved he can still rock out with “Hello.” Read More…
