In The Spotlight

Hojean – “Pose For Me”

Born in New York as Justin Hojean Yi and raised in Georgia, this rising Korean-American singer, songwriter, producer and visual artist first took to the stage in high school to impress a crush. He’s since taught himself to play guitar and creates his music in the comfort of his bedroom. Influenced by Frank Ocean, The Internet and New Edition, he debuted with “It’s All Static From Here” in 2017.

Striking a sonic pose with a classic R&B beat and an 80s-doused funk-pop vibe, his new single is an retro journey of melodic delights. With a rich driving rhythm, infectious synths and fresh guitar laying down an invigorating tune, it’s the suave smoothness of his vocals and the modern production that make this sophisticated groove a vintage-infused, honey-dipped and pastel-colored sweet treat.
