SoundCloud and K-pop: Where Artists Find Creative Freedom

SoundCloud for years has provided a place for musicians, famous and local, to share their music. Its home to groups of artists as diverse as the music itself. SoundCloud is more than just the current radio hits, as it reached artists of many different genres and languages.

Recently, the Korean music industry has entered the music-sharing hub, where K-artists and K-pop idols are uploading the kinds of music they love.  Many are quite active in releasing music, such as BTS, who have put up great covers and mixtapes, and Exo Chanyeol, who has multiple original tracks. Going through their SoundClouds, its refreshing and wonderful to hear how artists are taking roles outside of their group, such as hearing Rap Monster taking on the vocals in their cover of Troye Sivans Fools along with Jungkook, and Chanyeol putting up short tracks, such as Last Hunter, that shows off his production skills. As more and more artists and K-pop idols are becoming involved in the process of creating their music and showing off more of their skills, SoundCloud has become the number one outlet to release music.
