Yaeji Unveils Animated Music Video for "WHEN I GROW UP"
Featuring whimsical, hand-drawn cartoons.
Building on Yaeji’s livestreamed doodling session last week, the black-and-white visual features sketched animations of animals, onions and a figure that resembles Yaeji herself. The clip doubles as a lyric video, as hand-written lines of the song appear in both English and Korean throughout.
Take a look at Yaeji’s “WHEN I GROW UP” music video above, and scroll down for her previously released visual for “WHAT WE DREW.”
ORIGINAL STORY (April 2, 2020): After releasing the music video for her single “WAKING UP DOWN,” electronic producer and DJ Yaeji has finally unveiled her full mixtape WHAT WE DREW through a YouTube livestream. The New York-based musician premiered her latest project while interacting with her fans through a drawing and doodling session.
Consisting of 12 tracks total, WHAT WE DREW is filled with comforting, chilled-out beats that are much needed during this unsettling time. In highlight tunes such as “WHEN I GROW UP” and “MONEY CAN’T BUY,” Yaeji showcases her signature mixed whispers in Korean and English. The mixtape also features collaborations with artists like Brooklyn rapper Nappy Nina, Tokyo-based producer YonYon and London performance artist Victoria Sin. With physical CDs available in Korea and Japan, an additional bonus track titled “When In Summer, I Forget About The Winter” is available exclusively in Korea.
