[R&B Gem] SAAY

SAAY is a Korean R&B singer and she’s also our topic for this R&B Gem feature. SAAY has been blessing us with her since her solo debut in 2017. 

Originally she debuted in the girl group Evol. The group was active from 2012 till 2015 when some of the members left and the group unofficially disbanded.

Here’s one of their songs and honestly it’s a bop.

SAAY debuted as an R&B solo artist in 2017 with the single ‘Circle’. She went full-blown R&B with a style that fits her vocals so, so much. The girl can sing.

She writes and composes most of her own music. SAAY literally has talent in spades and I want the world to know about her because she’s iconic. Her Instagram is fashion inspiration and literal goals. 

One of my favorite songs is her track ‘ZGZG’. It’s catchy as hell, a bop three times over and so danceable.

She has some amazing dance moves, check this one out.


If you want some awesome collabs, here are some of my favorites. This track featuring Chai is so, so DOPE. If you want to read more about Chai, you can click here. ‘Gimme That’ is girl power and when this first came out I had it on replay for a hot minute.

Her collab with Punchnello is the song that put her on my radar.

‘Winter’ with Woo has some beautiful lyrics.

Go ahead and check out her Spotify page to discover more of her music. If you want to read our review about her latest EP ‘FEELosophy’, you can click here.
