Already in 2016, Crush has scored hits in Korea on his own, but also thanks to collaborations with Dean, Dynamic Duo's Gaeko and Taeyeon of Girls' Generation. Backstage at KCON 2016 New York Presented by Toyota, the R&B singer tells Fuse we can expect more exciting collabs coming very soon:
"These days, I'm working and hanging out a lot with these guys a lot, and they're Zico and Dean. I think you can expect that we will work on something together."
The "Woo Ah" crooner adds that he shot the jacket photos for his upcoming second album during this NYC trip, perhaps his subtle way of saying the new LP isn't far off.
Crush also told us about his dream collaborators, choosing rising names in America's electronic and R&B-pop scene:
"He is pretty popular here as well and I really want to work with Kaytranada. I love his work.
"And I want to work with Kehlani, she has a great, great voice. She has a voice that I really love and she's also talented. She writes songs and she creates her own music."
Watch above as the singer details working with Taeyeon on "Don't Forget," his new album and more. Below, check out fellow K-pop solo act Ailee talk about being an empowering singer:
