Wheesung to release US digital single and upcoming 6th album

OK, Im very happy that his Vol 6 is going to be release on 8th Oct, but Im not so thrill about the other news (US single).

Quite a number of asian singers (Korean and Japanese) have released singles in the US and up until now, I dont see their impact (or maybe I didnt follow US charts that much so correct me if Im wrong).

The new album (from the Japanese article) is going to be named as “Vocalate” … “Vocalate” is a combination of “Vocal” and “Chocolate”.

There’s 1 or 2 paragraph in the J-news that I dont time yet to try and decipher so maybe that I may try to decipher later (when I have the time).

Wheesung to Make US Debut Next Year

Wheesung with Rodney Jenkins

Wheesung, a South Korean R&B singer, is getting ready to take a step into the world’s largest pop market.

Popup Entertainment, the singer’s agency, said Wednesday that Wheesung will join forces with Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, one of America’s top producers, to debut in the United States early next year.

Wheesung’s debut album in the U.S. ― a digital single ― will contain two to three songs, the agency said. The singer’s American debut is drawing special attention because he signed a distribution and investment contract with Universal Music, the world’s largest record label.

Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins is a Grammy Award-winning songwriter, record producer and musician who produced such hit songs as “You Rock My World” by Michael Jackson, “Say My Name” by Destiny’s Child and “Dejavu” by Beyonce.

Wheesung’s U.S. entry has been made possible as Kim Hyung-seok, a famous local songwriter, recommended him to an acquaintance of Jerkins.

Popup Entertainment said, “Wheesung had already completed recording two songs in the U.S. Jerkins praised him for being a good singer.”

Wheesung, 27, was quoted as saying, “I am glad to have a good chance. I will do my best to reap fruitful results.”

He plans to release his sixth album in South Korea early next month.
