Taking influence from genres across the planet, the Korean soloist widens up our world with a truly impressive debut.

In an industry so saturated, she does incredibly well to always stand out and push something different and distinctly wow-worthy.

A cada dia que passa o hallyu - ou a "onda coreana" vem conquistando um maior espaço no globo, principalmente no ocidente graças ao estouro do k-pop na década passada. Dessa forma, não é difícil ver diversos grupos ou artistas solo inovando e tentando atingir um mercado cada vez mais abrangente.

'Querencia' é o mais recente exemplo de como o k-pop vem se ajustando à sua internacionalização. Aqui, Chung Ha abre ... read more

Chungha's debut LP is what all k-pop albums should aspire to be. Over the course of just 16 songs, she is able to cover many bases and visit a whole bunch of genres thanks to the album's separation into four "sides." NOBLE is full of hard-hitting pop, SAVAGE takes you to the club, UNKNOWN is a round-the-world ticket and PLEASURES is generally slower and more intimate. Even with such a long runtime, Querencia never loses your interest as it constantly shifts and transitions into new ... read more

"Querencia" se destaca pela sua ótima produção, bem eclética e bem montada, o disco foi dividido em quatro partes, todas bem estruturadas. Os vocais da artista estão bons, ganham mais destaque nas baladas, com em "X" que é a melhor música do disco, o único problema para mim, é que achei um pouco cansativo de ouvir por completo, porém, apesar disso, é um bom álbum.

Just another K-Pop album among all the others.

While Querencia is a somewhat risky project for the genre, it's still absolutely monotonous in many of the basic aspects that are usually superficially evaluated in the music world (the usual; vocals, production, composition, coherence between tracks, lyrics, etc). Without hesitation, I can say that this is not one of those K-Pop projects that I like (like Twice's 'Formula of Love...', for example) for purely personal tastes, connected to the fact ... read more
