"Heaven" is the ultimate in sappy R&B ballads, hitting a rhythm on the chorus that's engineered to hit your brain where it feels gooooood and that's all that really matters. If Ailee herself doesn't stick out, she proves herself to be a perfect vessel for that sky-high melody. But Ailee's really taken charge with her latest single "U&I":
Everything in this video screams "fierce," from that classy brass backing to the jangly Motown beat -- and we haven't even got to the song's star yet. Ailee delivers perhaps her most personal performance here, conveying a terrifying indifference on the stilted "Wait a minute. Wait a minute." that opens the course before taking charge in an absolutely ripping chorus. It's all a big spectacle, sure, and what in K-Pop isn't? It's the performers that fill the theatrical with the human, anyway; and Ailee's doing a damn fine job of it here.
