With so much sadness, anger, hurt and frustration in the world of K-Pop this week, I decided we needed a bright and happy Tune of the Week to cheer us up and make us all feel better and wouldn’t you know, Megan Lee has made her debut with a song that should do the trick. Bright, cheery and adorable, Megan Lee’s “8dayz” is such a sweet, feel-good song, I was instantly inspired to make it this week’s featured tune.
For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Megan Lee and her work, she was born and raised in California and began her career in the American entertainment industry at the age of 10, appearing in numerous commercials and television shows before launching her YouTube channel, cutiepiemeg918 several years ago. From there, Megan signed with Soulshop Entertainment and has spent her time as a trainee, working towards her debut, which she made this week with her super sweet song, “8dayz.”
If you ask me, “8dayz” is one of those rare songs that makes you smile from the very beginning, as the peppy folk rock feel of the song makes me want to get up a dance with a giant smile plastered on my face. I really love the way the instruments of this song are blended as the clean sound of the acoustic guitar is supported by the other instruments, rather than overshadowed by them and I would honestly enjoy an instrumental version of this song almost as much as the original if it weren’t for the fact that Yong JunHyung makes a guest appearance towards the end. I’m not gonna lie, I’d much rather listen to Yong JunHyung’s rapping than an instrumental track any day. (Yeah, I’m a fangirl, what can I say?) For the record, I really did love “8dayz” from the very beginning but then Yong JunHyung appeared, that pretty much sealed the deal for me. How can you not love a song that combines the sweet vocals of Megan Lee with the rapping of Yong JunHyung to give us a truly adorable, feel-good song? To me, it’s pretty much impossible which is why I’m here toting the praises of this song. Even if you’re not a fan of folk rock, you should at least check out the MV for “8dayz” just to catch a glimpse of Yong JunHyung being all adorable.
There is also an English version of “8dayz” that you can check out here…
but, as you can see, it’s sadly lacking an appearance by Yong JunHyung. JunHyung aside, both version of “8dayz” are super cute and ridiculously catchy and I have to say, I’m quite impressed by Megan Lee. She’s really a talented singer and musician and I hope that this debut does well for her because I think she has the potential to wow us with her talent for years to come.
So what do you think of Megan Lee and her debut song, “8dayz”? Do you love it like I do or are you not that impressed? As always, I’d love to know your thoughts to be sure to leave me a comment below!
