Song Review: Yezi – Home

Only a month after her last solo release, ex-Fiestar member Yezi has already returned with another track. For most of her solo career, she’s capitalized on her skills as a rapper.

To be honest, I never finished season two, though I have watched enough to know that Fiestar’s Yezi, with her breathless … Continue reading
