Korea’s number one diva, Gummy, started differently from other rookie singers. Ever since her debut, her singing ability was already perfected and soon enough she was labeled the “Great female singer”. However she had a lot of passion as a musician and vocalist. In order to achieve more, she put much effort into her work and three years later, finally released her fourth studio album titled ‘Comfort’.

Through the fourth album, Gummy took on new challenges by trying out various genres. Gummy, who has previously had title tracks that were sad R&B ballads such as “When You Return” and “Amnesia”, has come back this time with an electronic dance track called ‘I’m Sorry’, which features T.O.P’s rapping.

In addition to the title track, ‘Let’s Get it Party’ has a Latin rhythm and hip-hop beat to it. The dance track, ‘Last Party’, was composed and written by Psy and Skull of Stony Skunk is featured in ‘Up to Here’, which has a reggae feel to it. Of course, Gummy’s specialties in ballads and R&B tracks aren’t neglected. Fans who have enjoyed Gummy’s past styles and fans who wanted a change in style will all enjoy ‘Comfort’.
