Released as a holiday gift for fans, the Canadian-Dutch-Korean Kpop Idol JEON SOMI recently released a new music video for ‘Anymore’, a B-side and also her first full English single from the album ‘XOXO’. Often portrayed as the girl next door, this new solo track is bound to be a slam dunk success
Now based in Korean, SOMI wrote about how she copes with heartbreak. The song starts out with a simple muted strum pattern of the acoustic guitar, then gradually introduces other instruments, building to a catchy pop-tune, a somewhat familiar sound reminiscent of SOMI’s muses Cyndi Lauper and Rihanna.
SOMI has also released two posters before officially dropping the full length MV as a special treat to her fans.
