Lee Ha Yi to Release a Ballad Song Next

Rookie singer Lee Ha Yi (aka Lee Hi) will take on the ballad genre for her next song.

On November 19, YG Entertainment made a surprise announcement that Lee Ha Yi will release her second song on November 22.

Well known for her soulful voice during SBS’s popular audition program “K-Pop Star,” Lee Ha Yi went above everyone’s expectations debuting with a retro track and topping local music charts, a feat difficult for non-rookies as the market becomes more saturated with idols and artists debuting practically every day.

Lee Ha Yi has previously broke the record of the fastest artist to hit #1 since debut and is currently creating a new record of placing first on music charts for 23 days with her debut track.

Soompiers, do you think it’s a smart move that she changes up and tackles the ballad genre now? Or should she stick with soul?
