Lorde’s Unexpected Dream Partner For a Music Collab = YG Entertainment’s Lee Hi

Posted By Kristine Ortiz On December 4, 2013 @ 7:47 pm In Pop Culture | Comments Disabled

After expressing her interest in writing lyrics for a K-Pop song in an interview earlier this year, teenage singer-songwriter Lorde, whose debut album was just named to Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums of 2013 [1], has continued to show her love for and rather impressive knowledge of hallyu.  In an interview with Universal Music, Lorde notes that a collaboration between her and YG Entertainment’s Lee Hi is something on her wish list, as she’s a fan of the K-Pop Star-bred songstress.  “I particularly like her,” she notes.

Lorde praised the K-Pop industry for its fresh take on pop music, something she says that she doesn’t see in the West:

“The melodies and songs [in K-Pop] are very interesting. Their melodies are a lot more charming than the Western pop which I grew up listening to. If it is pop music, it should be to that extent.”

She later goes on to demonstrate her (somewhat surprising) K-Pop knowledge, as she mentions being a fan of 2NE1 [2] and wanting dance lessons from Girls’ Generation [3].

But the prospect of a Lee Hi x Lorde collaboration is definitely something we’re interested in hearing.  With both being 17-year old’s with singing chops that go way beyond their years (it should be noted that both were named to Billboard’s 21 Under 21 [4]), we’d love to hear what a duet could sound like.

So if you’re reading, YG and Universal Music — make it happen.  Please.
