Since debuting in 2019, she has caught the attention of fans for her talent, and this song will allow her to gain much-deserved love from global fans.
3. Henry Lau

Yet, the singer is very much a part of the soundtrack collaborating on the track “Baba Says” with Adawa and Shayiting EL. Once again, Henry showcases just how diverse and talented he is in the song.
4. Zion. T

Making her debut in 2020, Seori has quickly caught the attention of fans worldwide with her unique tone and catchy songs. She also gained love after collaborating with the group TXT on their track “0X1=Lovesong (I Know I Love You)” earlier in the year. Her track “Warriors” with Warren Hue is calm and showcases what her sound is.
