[Feature] YB Collabs through the Years : Part 3 Kim Jo Han and YMGA

Kim Jo Han

Kim Jo Han is a Korean-American R&B singer, producer and actor. A former member of the group Solid, he is one of the pioneers in K-R&B and has numerous collaborations with singers in Kpop, both on record and behind the scenes as a producer. Taeyang featured in his last album in a duet.

The hiphop duo of Young Men Gangsta’s Association (YMGA) composed of Masta Wu and DM released an album in 2008 that featured a lot of their label mates in YG Family in collaboration (most notably one with Uhm Jung Hwa.)  The following Brave Brothers produced track (co-composed by Masta Wu) featured Taeyang.

The collaborations are a marked contrast in vocal and musical styles – and yet I think Taeyang did a great job with both. I think one of Taeyang’s greatest strengths as a singer is his ability to interpret and become immersed in the mood and storyline of a song (even those that may not seemingly be a “Taeyang” type of song.)  It’s served him well as a soloist but also makes him a good match in these (and other) collaborations.

Thanks to the uploaders!
