Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Like You by Korean singer Hoody. Her real name is Kim Hyun-Jung and she's a member of the all-girl underground hip hop crew Amourette (AMRT).* She released her first solo single My Ride in 2013, followed by Baby Oh Baby (and remix) in 2014 and Let Em Know in 2015.

Last year Hoody signed to South Korean record label AMOG, becoming their first female artist. She also featured on Korean American rapper (and AOMG founder) Jay Park's single Solo. Like You is her latest single which came out at the end of May. It's her first release under AOMG.

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
