The original After School leader doesn't disappoint after more than a year away from the K-pop scene.
Kahi, the original leader of K-pop girl group After School, made her return to the music scene. After graduating from the group in September 2012 -- After School is the only K-pop act with a graduation/admission system -- the singer/rapper took her time to craft a follow-up to her underrated ballad-dance hybrid "Come Back You Bad Person." The result comes with "It's Me," another genre concoction with Kahi opting for a funky, tango-influenced electropop single with a side of hip-hop, courtesy of a verse by rising rapper Dumbfoundead.
Eighties synths are sprinkled over piano loops and burlesque-like snaps to back remarkably strong vocals from the K-diva. It's a refreshing aural shift when Dumbfoundead jumps in on the bridge, but it is curious why Kahi would not handle a rap section herself. The 32-year-old stunner proved her MC capabilities many times on After School and her solo material.
