Passport: Ailee Prepares to Unveil “Heaven”

We’re not a K-Pop blog, but when we see one of our artists make headway in any music industry, whether it be domestically or abroad, we can’t help but be excited. So you’ll have to excuse us if we sound overly enthusiastic to announce that New Jersey’s own Ailee is finally about to release her debut single since getting signed in Korea and dropping jaws with her talent last fall. The song is called Heaven, and below you will find the MV teaser. It’s set to drop February 9th, and although it’s only a 30 second clip, we’re more than optimistic about this release.
