SANG: Hi, thank you for having me! I’ve been really busy spending the last month preparing for my debut while also going to law school, but I’m so excited to finally be releasing my music!
Q: Can you talk to us more about your debut single “Fantasy” that’s out now?
SANG: “Fantasy” is about telling the girl that if she believes in me and trusts in me, then I can fulfill any of her wildest fantasies. In order to portray the visual aspect of fantasy, I prepared a music video for this song as well, which would help my new fans to get to know me more as an artist. You can listen to “Fantasy” below:
Q: Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
SANG: There was no particular event that inspired me to write this song. However, when I and other songwriters were writing this song, we tried to make a hip-hop song that has a catchy hook. While writing lyrics for the song, we discovered that the word “Fantasy” goes well in general with other lyrics in the song so we integrated the word “Fantasy” as a hook.
Q: How was the filming process and experience behind the upcoming music video?
SANG: Filming the upcoming music video was a challenge for me since it was my first time preparing and filming it. However, it was great that I had an opportunity to work with amazing directors and Dytto who was featured as a lead actress for the upcoming music video.
Q: How was the recording and writing process?
SANG: It went well. Even though I spent countless nights in studio with my producer and other songwriters for this song, I truly enjoyed spending time with them in the studio.
Q: What role does LA play in your music?
SANG: Being in LA helps me to surround myself with talented people who could be artists, songwriters, producers, audio engineers, etc. I hope I can provide more songs for my future fans by working with talented people who live in LA.
Q: How has your upbringing influenced your writing?
SANG: I think studying economics during my undergrad and going to law school influenced me to become a person who likes to analyze and set a structure. For example, when I and other songwriters finish making a rough beat and melody for the song, I noticed that I divide parts of the song into verse, pre-chorus and chorus before jumping into writing lyrics.
Q: Do you tend to take a different approach when you are collaborating with someone else, rather than on your own?
SANG: For my music career, I tend to collaborate more with someone else rather than working on my own since I believe in having a synergy through working with another person who has a creative mindset.
Q: Does your upcoming single mean we can expect even more material throughout 2019?
SANG: Of course. I already have a few other songs that will be ready to be released within a couple months. Once I release my first single, I am planning to keep releasing more songs throughout 2019.
Q: Any plans to perform live?
SANG: Yes. I definitely have plans to perform live this year! Keep up with me on Instagram for performance announcements:
