Ballad singer KCM’s official 4th album [Kingdom]

KCM released his 3rd album in 2006 and now he is back with his 4th album. The whole album was produced by Korea’s best composer Jo Young Soo. This album consists of KCM’s sad ballads and many varieties of genres. The title song is called “Classic”, which is a great ballad that brings out a nice orchestra instrumental and KCM’s powerful vocal skills. This song was created by Jo Young Soo and Ahn Young Min. Another song to check out is track 2 “One Day Diary”, which is also created by Jo Young Soo and Ahn Young Min. It’s another great ballad that has a nice acoustic sound and melody to it along with meaningful lyrics. The song “I Use To Love” is a hip hop song featuring Carlos (member of Up Town), who also wrote the lyrics for the rap part. The song was composed by Kim Tae Hyun and written by Kim Hae Sun. It is a song that showcases Carlos’ rap skills, which blend well with KCM’s high-tone voice. Female singer Zia also contributed by singing a jazzy duet with KCM. There is also a dance song that KCM personally composed himself, called “I Am”. There are a total of 14 tracks in this album and every single track is worth listening to.

The nice instrumental in this song blends ISU and JinYi’s voices together, giving a nice harmony. The music video was directed by director Ahn Hong Chul. Both ISU and JinYi make an appearance in the music video. This duet is sung by the best two vocalists and it is expected to become a big hit.
