“Got It” crosses a sound mixed between K-Pop, Pop, R&B & Retro that boasts Kevin’s sexiness & versatility. The single was released worldwide on June 30.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, July 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kevin Woo has released his US debut single “Got It’, collaborating with top producer Shintaro Yasuda (Ariana Grande’s “Off the Table” featuring The Weeknd), on all streaming platforms worldwide on June 30th.
“Got It” marks the beginning of Kevin’s journey as a crossover K-Pop artist, with a mature and sexy sound, a shift and progression from the soloist’s former styles. The sultry yet powerful song is inspired by the genres of Retro, R&B, and K-Pop beats. It is a medium-tempo song that is a balance anchored between a dark and feel-good vibe. Sonically, the producer Shintaro chose darker sounds and instruments inspired by 80s analog synthesizers. As the song opens, the drums drive a groovy and uplifting chorus that inspires people to dance and feel good. The mood is envisioning summer nights with the transition from dusk to dawn over time.
Kevin states, “While writing ’Got It’, I thought about how this song expresses my honest feelings of being in a toxic relationship and having a hard time leaving something that ultimately made me feel good. This song also correlates with my professional and personal life because although it is hard to constantly be in the spotlight under pressure in the public eye, I choose to remain steadfast and continue to strive to be a great artist. At the end of the day, I genuinely love to sing and perform and that is ultimately what makes me feel alive.” He added, “This is the first song that I’ve written as an artist. To work with Shintaro, who has worked with household names like Ariana Grande and The Weeknd, was a huge inspiration for me.”
Shintaro says “Working with Kevin is such a great experience. Due to the pandemic, we initially met and started the song over Zoom, but finally was able to come together and work in person. We both shared the same vision for the song, and it is so nice that he knows where he wants to go creatively. Initially, we had long conversations about life, and I think we immediately bonded. The song came about naturally and unforced. I really wanted Kevin to be in the moment and really have fun working on the song and trusting his instinct. We are both perfectionists but still managed to have fun in the writing and recording process. By the time we were halfway done with the song, we already knew the visual direction we wanted to take the song and immediately discussed the music video. Kevin is so focused and driven it was such a blast writing this with him!”
Kevin added, “As an independent solo artist, I have full control over my creativity as an artist and project planning. It’s been a wild ride and a pretty steep learning curve, but it feels liberating to take matters into my own hands and grow as an artist.”
