On 4, Beyoncé belts it out like her life depended on it — she may come off a little excessive, but it’s nice to see a little glimmer of soul once in a while.

The sexy megastar is back on the Korean music scene with a mini-album that is neither here nor there, but this is Rain so it is all good as long as he flashes his abs.
The sound in Black.Choice.White marks a distinct path for Bibi, broadening her vocal range but still keeping a cohesive feel that makes it her most complete album since her NOW/WOW days.
Zhou Bichang’s fifth full-length studio album i.Fish.Light.Mirror takes us through different music eras with songs that sound a bit 70s, a bit 90s pop rock and electronic ballads of the early 2000s.
The double album by Zhou Bichang came about after Bibi completed her music studies in California and graduated from the music conservatory in Guangdong. Both NOW and WOW sport very different music styles and two very different Bibis.
Bibi’s back with Time, a full 10-track album that includes hit singles Sing Half a Song and Your Love — which was dedicated to her fans. At first listen, there isn’t anything remarkable about Time as an album, but it has its merits.
The best element in Unlock is and always will be Bibi’s voice, reaching on-pitch highs and soft delicate whispery lows that will make your soul quiver.
Who Touched my Violin String marked mainland China Super Girl’s first runner-up Zhou Bichang’s debut, aptly mixing ballads that would become a signature style with off-beat sounding pop rhythm and blues.
Pop music phenom Big Bang makes a triumphant return to the Korean music scene, releasing their fifth EP Alive.
