You should add her songs, because she is that nuna!
Ho Hyun Ju, is one of the rising Korean hiphop artist known as Jessi. She is an American-born Korean singer who moved to South Korea to pursue her career in singing when she was 15. She returned to the US some time in 2009 to take a break from music. Now with her shot to stardom, Jessi has been gaining a lot of attention with her straightforward and intimidating personality as well as her variety shows.
You’ve probably seen clips of her messing around in your variety show screens: Running Man, My Little Old Boy, and Problem Child in the House.
Aside from her strong variety personality, Jessi is actually one of the front-runners with the current trends in K-Hip Hop today. If you only heard two of her recent hits, mind you take a listen to the following songs below:
Song #1: Unpretty Dreams
Back in 2015, Jessi participated in the first season of Unpretty Rapstar, a spin-off of Show Me The Money, a female version of the hip-hop survival program. She finished first-runner up in this program, with Cheetah as the grand winner.
Song #2: Gucci
After gaining more recognition from Unpretty Rapstar, Jessi was able to release her first mini-album, Un2verse with Gucci.
Song #3: Who Dat B
She then moved to PSY’s label, P-Nation as one of the early signed artists. She released her first single under the label, Who Dat B in September 2019.
Song #4: Drip (feat. Jay Park)
Two months after Who Dat B, Jessi worked with AOMG’s Jay Park for Drip.
Song #5: Numb
Before we forgot, Jessi initially debuted as a singer, and I guess her song, Numb is a reminder of that! This song is part of her most recent album, Nuna released in July 2020.
Song #6: What Type of X
After months of waiting, Jessi dropped her latest release, What Type of X last March 2021.

Bonus Track: Nunu Nana
