Weekly Music Video

Today's music video is Thru These Tears by American band LANY. It's the first single from their upcoming 2nd album Malibu Nights and is about lost love. The inspiration behind the song is thought to be lead singer Paul Klein's break up with British singer Dua Lipa. Paul also has a new look. I miss his long hair! lol. But it's good to have a change sometimes. :)

Thru These Tears was released in July and the official music video came out on YouTube on 2nd August.

This week's video is LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME by Japanese girl group BananaLemon. The group was formed by the producer STY and is made up of 4 members- leader and main vocalist Nadia (who is Japanese and Filipina and also has Spanish. Chinese and Russian heritage), other lead vocalist Saarah (who is half Japanese and half African American and lived in Los Angeles as a child), R!No and Mizuki. There's also said to be a "hidden" 5th member, like with the K-pop group K.A.R.D. The meaning of BananaLemon is a mix between sour and sweet.

The band started out in 2017 with the song #SorryNotSorry. (Though I don't think they've made their official debut yet). Other singles include GIRLS GONE WILD, FOREVER YOUNG and I WANNA, I WANNA.

The LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME video came out on 30th July. Click "Subtitles/Closed Captions) when viewing  the video on YouTube to see English subtitles!

I did a post on new K-pop releases in June but haven't done a general one for a while, so today I'm focusing on some Western and international music.
