Behind the hip-hop of “Don’t Anyhow”
Behind the K-pop and contemporary rap-leaning sounds, “Don’t Anyhow” is a finger-in-the-face warning to keep it real, and say only what we mean. Sharing a personal story about a heavy phone-call dispute between Erina and an acquaintance, Erina describes first-hand the destruction one’s lies could cause to the innocent party. The idea of causing hurt with one’s words is something Erina reiterates –
“The tongue has the power of life and death. Our words have the power to turn what is negative to something positive and vice versa.” – Erina Shan
Fans of artists like CL, Beenzino and DEAN may just want to give “Don’t Anyhow” a listen – pre-order the song now or catch it on streaming platforms this coming Friday, 7 April 2017.
