I know poor choice of words, but JYP says "sounding black" but means "having soul". He needs to choose words more carefully but then again, in Korea saying sounding black is probably a greater compliment than having soul. It's also better than some other companies who definitely try to get their artists to sound black and imitate black culture but won't admit that *cough* YG *cough*.

sounds black..... k

BigBlueagain Saturday, June 11, 2016

Ok lets' try this again. First, white music. 

Same song, now black music. 

BigBlueagain Saturday, June 11, 2016

(facepalm) Switch those around.

BigBlueagain Saturday, June 11, 2016

Ok for those of you who do not understand, this is an example. This is white music aka country. (song starts at 1:02)

That was Dolly Parton and she wrote the song. Now, different singer, different producer, same song, but now it's black music. (song starts at 0:35). This is Miss Whitney Houston 

Same song, COMPLETELY different sound and form.

"Perfect! She really sounds black." 

L_catzzz Saturday, June 11, 2016

Wait. What does "black" sounds like?

BigBlueagain L_catzzz Saturday, June 11, 2016

In this case? Mary J. Blige. Toni Braxton, Faith Evans, Brian McKnight, Usher, etc.

wonderboy47 L_catzzz Saturday, June 11, 2016

JYP equates "soul" to sounding black. Which I guess in a lot of ways isn't wrong. lol
