What defines good music? Some say good music comes from good lyrics. Some say it’s from the Beautiful and soothing voices from the singer. Some say it’s from the composition. Well, we’re grateful enough to witness the release of Lee Hi HOLO, a single sthat fulfills those criteria. The song made its way to the public in 2020, around the time when Lee Hi joined AOMG.
Lee Hi HOLO: If You’re in the Midst of Loneliness, Don’t Worry
Lee Hi once again proved the world on how good she was when it comes to music. Beginning her debut in 2012 after finishing 2nd on the first season of SBS K-pop Star, she showed us that there’s no signs of declining in terms of her vocals and musical skills. Lee Hi HOLO is her first single after joining hip hop label, AOMG.
The piano playing in the background makes this song even more beautiful, along with Lee Hi excellent and expressive voices and the lyrics that are somehow relatable to some people. The lyrics, have some deep meaning. The song mainly talks about what being lonely is all about, especially on hard times like this.
Lee Hi Holo lyrics:
“Whether being alone or together, the loneliness feels the same.”
And this song provides consolation to people who are trapped in the midst of loneliness.
