This summer is really starting to heat up with a variety of artists, both in and out of the international fans’ eye, dropping release after release. An artist that you might not be familiar with is Ra.D. He is an artist who debuted in 2002 and has a smooth blended hip-hop/R&B style. He first came to my attention last year with his release “Thank You”. The music video, which featured Lee Jung Hyuk and Kim Seul Gie and was one of my favorites from last year, telling the cute and very realistic story of a couple struggling to maintain their relationship. If you are not familiar, with the song you should watch it now, I highly recommend it!
As a bonus, he recorded the main song (the one played at pivotal moments) for one of my favorite dramas “Dating Agency: Cyrano.” I cannot hear the opening five seconds of this song without instantly picturing the main couple playfully called Gong Stone and Byun Hyung. Did you watch this drama? Do you remember this song as well as I do?
His newest song is called “Fly Away.” The video is a little different though, it shows Ra.D getting prepared to sky-dive and then ultimately follow him out of the plane and into his freefall. The song is also very smooth and summery and fits in very nicely with Ra.D’s most recent releases.
What do you think of Ra.D? Were you already familiar with his work or is this your first time hearing him? Let us know in the comments below!
