Wish & Wind
South Korean R&B singer Heize is the artist behind this incredible EP. This is not quite an album as it only has six tracks, but it’s definitely worthy of being mentioned here. This album is experimental in the way that it has some jazz undertones. This was a bold move by Heize, as K-pop and jazz have some very distinct differences. However, you definitely need to give this one a listen, it’s a great album.
