Far East Movement released the full MV from their new album, 'IDENTITY', and the MV is a collaboration with none other than Yoon Mi Rae


The "Fighter" MV overlaps modern visuals with old, black and white footage from war-torn Korea and Asian American immigrants. Yoo Mi Rae's soothing yet powerful vocals sings of being a fighter and urging others to keep fighting. 


A detailed and moving description of the MV was released with the video, adding to the deep meaning of the MV, music, and the upcoming album. The message reads:


"This song is reflective of our own lives and careers where there have been so many instances where we wanted to give up. Creating this positive and inspirational tone was in fact therapeutic for us. the whole album theme is a far east movement identity, so for the music video with Yoon Mirae we wanted to pay respect to the early korean and asian immigrants that were either forced here from conflict or came here with a dream and made it possible for something like the far east movement to even exist. Sadly in today's news, when we hear politicians and talk radio hosts stances on letting people into the US we can only think, 'what if they did that to all the Asian groups that had no where to go and ended up here?' the music vid is symbolic of us finding our own way and identity. We have wanted to officially collaborate with the legendary Yoon Mirae for years, she is someone who's credibilty and longevity in the korean music scene is a testament to her skills and fight. We also collaborated with a norwegian artist and one of the most innovative musicians in the game, who we recently signed to our company Transparent Agency with Trapcity named Autolaser. Thank you for taking this journey with us and we hope you enjoy the album." -FM"

    I love Yoon Mirae and the video is just amazing. But I really have a problem with Far East Movement's over produced sound in like every track they produce and they tuned Yoon Mirae's voice here which actually makes the song less monumental than it's meaning and it's MV story. Recently EDM producers have incorporated less electronic tune on singing voices and the contrast actually makes the songs pop out more. Far East Movement should take that note. Not everything needs electronic touch.

    Yoon Mi Rae literally looks like an angel in this video, or at least a 1000 year old vampire queen. I'm not a huge fan of this song but the video was well made and beautiful. I also thought, with Queen T. you get the best of both worlds. You get a beautiful Korean woman who can sing and an African American woman that can rap. What more could you ask for, that's why she's the queen.
