Underrated Comebacks with Four Women in the Music Industry; deserve more recognition in the field
Music is a representation of ourselves and the culture in which we live. Here are four female artists you probably haven’t listened to, but definitely should.
TeZATalks writes in her Spotify bio that her songs are about things she struggles to talk about. His pop song “Gas Up” is a brilliant reflection of it. The slow and dark atmosphere of the song resonated in my ears, but I was especially fascinated by certain lyrics.
“Dancing in my breakup blanket
This skin was meant for love
Where the fuck is mine.
When I listen to sad songs that focus on the absence of love, I hear artists talk about how they want love instead of saying they’re made for it. TeZATalks saying her skin “was meant” for love packs a huge emotional punch in tandem with the rest of the song.
His hard-hitting lyricism can be found in many of his other songs, such as “Drowning”, which is a call to action for societal issues.
Each of his songs carries a lot of meaning. Some of my other favorites include “The World”, “My Seat”, “Invisible” and “Love”.
She is very active in the music industry and leaves potential for exponential growth in her career.
Kennie has a style reminiscent of lofi and retro music. Even his album covers have a nostalgic side. For listeners who want a break from the modern sound and instead want to dive deep into an older realm, Kennie’s discography won’t disappoint.
Kennie’s voice is soothing and smooth no matter what note she sings. The best example of this is in her song “Pretty”. As celestial synths fill the background, Kennie nails the high and low notes as she focuses on an ex-lover with a new girl.
Most of her songs are about love, and she does them with such confidence that it makes her discography stimulating to listen to.
Kennie, unfortunately, doesn’t get much success for his music, but his general social media presence is quite popular. For comparison, she Youtube channel dedicated to music only has 45,000 subscribers and just over 500,000 views. Meanwhile, his main channel focused on movie reviews and beauty has over 600,000 subscribers and 78 million views.
It would be unfair to say that Kennie as a person is underrated because she has a notable presence on major platforms. However, I definitely stand by the fact that his music deserves a lot more attention.
Even though she has released less than 20 songs, all of them are worth at least one listen. “Sabotage” is my favorite so far.
I like to listen to songs in other languages even if I don’t understand them. It’s soothing to hear people sing in their mother tongue. Music often connects people to their culture, so I believe listening to songs in other languages fosters cultural appreciation.
Jamala – a Ukrainian singer – is not only an example of this, but also an example of female power and bravery during a very tragic conflict between Ukraine and Russia.
She won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2016 with her song “1944,” which is linked to Joseph Stalin’s deportation of people to Crimea during World War II, according to The Independent.
Now she has fled to Turkey with her children in order to take refuge from the Russian invasion of Ukraine. In a bid to rally support from other countries, she has declared the conflict a war on European values, according to The Independent.
She is performing again at Eurovision this year. While she initially had doubts during the preliminary round, her singing erased them, saying she would continue singing if it meant raising money for Ukraine, according to The Independent.
Jamala has a bank of songs in English and Ukrainian. His bests include his entire 2014 album “Thank You” and his single “The Great Pretender.”
Miso is the first Korean artist invited to participate in the Red Bull Academy of Music, ACaccording to his Spotify profile.
Although it has a very small collection of songs available, I found each one quite enjoyable. The instrumentals in his songs are similar to Kennie’s, where they are dreamy and sound heavily influenced by lofi.
His most popular single, “Take Me”, is the best example of this. The background is incredibly cold, with her voice blending in perfectly.
“Evermore” and “Alone” are two of my other favorites from her.
