Yoon Mi Rae New Track ‘Because of You’ From SM Entertainment
Yoon Mi Rae has recently collaborated with SM Entertainment for the third track of their STATION project. Previous tracks were sung by Taeyeon who performed ‘Secret’ and Yu Young Jin with D.O. , whom were previously teamed up for ‘Tell Me What is Love’. The Yoon Mi Rae track, ‘Because of You’, was produced by Kenzie and Matthew Tishler, both of whom are responsible for the production of Taeyeon’s ‘Rain’ and ‘U R’ (along with EXO’s ‘Sing for You’). If you’re familiar with those songs then you may also be able to guess that Yoon Mi Rae’s ‘Because of You’ is also a ballad.
MFBTY’s leading lady seems to be the ‘It Girl’ for ballad tracks. While they’ve all but composed her recent solo tracks (yeah, I haven’t forgotten Capture the City), it’s great to see Yoon Mi Rae branching out and continue knocking down the prejudices in the music scene. Who would’ve thought a day where Yoon Mi Rae and SM got together would come?
The song is beautiful, and Yoon Mi Rae’s unique voice truly breathes life to the song. There is a short music video that also accompanies the song. It shows Yoon Mi Rae and Matthew in South Korea and Los Angeles, respectively, and shows an edited video of the collaboration process, from production to Yoon Mi Rae slaying the song whilst being advised via webcam from Matthew. It clearly expresses SM Entertainment’s goal to make their STATION project international.
For those of you who don’t know what the STATION project is, it’s a digital music channel where for every week of the year a new song will be released on a certain day. It’s not only an Asian project but artists from overseas will international project. March 4th will be the day the fourth song of the project will be released, can anyone guess who it will be?
