Over the past several years, there has been a new wave of K-pop artists making their way into the realm of C-pop music. This includes the likes of Luhan, Tao, Victoria Song and Kris Wu to name a few. In addition to that, one of the latest female acts to crossover includes Jia, a former member of the JYP’s Korean girl group, Miss A.
As Jia’s contract with JYP Entertainment expired in 2016, she decided to take her talents to the world of C-pop in attempts to tap into the Chinese music market. She signed with Banana Culture Music, to begin her activities as a solo artist. The former Rapper and vocalist of Miss A have also redefined herself by going with a modified name in “Meng Jia”. This coincidentally ties back to the title of this solo debut EP album, called “孟佳JIA 首張同名EP” which directly translates to “Jia’s Debut EP album”.
Originally, from Loudi, Hunan, China, this is Meng Jia’s first time releasing a music album in Mandarin, her mother tongue. Overall, “Jia’s Debut Ep” is very straightforward and simple, with filled with tunes with vibes that are easy to catch. It entails three upbeat songs with sounds familiar to the listeners of K-pop and Western American pop music.
