Yaeji Unveils Animated Music Video for "WHEN I GROW UP"

Featuring whimsical, hand-drawn cartoons.

UPDATE (April 7, 2020): Following Yaeji‘s release of full-length mixtape WHAT WE DREW, the Brooklyn-based producer and DJ dropped a music video for track “WHEN I GROW UP.”

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.

Look below for the “WHAT WE DREW” music video. You can head over to Spotify, Apple Music or YouTube now to listen to her latest project.
