K-pop diva Ailee is back, and she’s heating things up with her new single, “Room Shaker.”
Over two years have passed since Ailee’s last single, “Reminiscing,” in 2017, and three since the release of her most recent EP, A New Empire, in 2016, but the artist has returned in a big way with her fierce new single. “Room Shaker” is a hip-hop-oriented dance track, blending Ailee’s powerful vocals with dance music, trap beats, and sing-song raps.
“Room Shaker” arrived with a music video that features the singer donning impassioned purple hair, fur coats, power suits and a variety of other show-stopping looks as she makes her way through classrooms, parking garages and other, often shimmering, sets, casting a magical spell as she performs her room shaking choreography while declaring her dominance.
Ailee, who hails from the U.S., got her start in the South Korean music world with her breakout single, “Heaven,” in 2012. She has gone on to become one of the country’s most prominent young female vocalists, both through her solo efforts and through collaborations, as well as appearances on soundtracks of popular Korean television shows. In 2017, her song “I Will Go to You Like the First Snow” from the soundtrack of the fantasy show Goblin (also known as Gaurdian: The Lonely and Great God) became one of the year’s biggest hits.
